Five Gifts to Wow the Happy Couple

As restrictions lift and we find ourselves attending weddings again, we are reminded of the difficulty that comes with finding the perfect gift for the happy couple. It has also become more common nowadays for couples to move in together before they get married, which hasn’t always been the case. Coupled with the many home renovations and décor alterations that occurred during lockdown, bed linen, fruit bowls, or a new set of frying pans is no longer a viable option for a wedding gift.

This is still the case for some couples, however, so it’s best to double-check what they already might own before you start buying wedding gifts. Also, for many weddings these days, couples create lists for you to choose their wedding gifts from. Whilst it’s often best to stick to the list, we know that you’ll also want to give something meaningful to really show the happy couple how pleased you are for them. We’ve put together some ideas for wedding gifts that will make their wedding day even more special.

1. Something for the home

If you’ve scoured their list of wedding gifts and nothing takes your fancy, or you just want to give them an extra added surprise, something for the home won’t go amiss. Just bear in mind that they might already have some of the essentials, so stick to luxury items or things that they can consume or will need replacing. Aside from giving them replica wedding gifts which they already own, the only danger with buying wedding gifts for the home is that they might not like it.

We all have different tastes and styles within our homes, so it’s best to play it safe when it comes to homeware wedding gifts. Why not give them a gift card so they can start off wedded bliss with all their favourite items of their choosing in their new home? We have a wide range of Home & Garden gift cards at Gift Card Store so they can pick something they’ll love.

2. A toast to wedded bliss

After all the time and effort put into planning a wedding, the happy couple deserves to relax and extend the celebrations long after the wedding ceremony. Why not treat them to a bottle of bubbly with some elegant champagne flutes to help them do just that? If you want to make it even more personal, you could create your own personalised champagne bottle label by printing their new married names or a photo of the happy couple on sticker paper. They’ll really appreciate the thought behind the gift.

If you want to help them keep the celebrations going for even longer, then a Beer 52 gift card is the perfect gift to do just that. With different craft beer subscription options available, from 1 month to 12 months, this will set their married life off to a great start and give them a reason to celebrate each month.

3. Things they can do

Often, wedding gifts are material items the new couple can keep or store in their home. These are really meaningful and useful wedding gifts that will be highly appreciated, but after saving for months for their wedding day, there may be some couples who just want to enjoy spending some time trying new experiences together, now they have the time again.

These experiences could be some dates that they haven’t had the time or money to go on in a while, such as a restaurant gift card, a cinema gift card, or even a gift card for a spa day. Wedding gifts like these give the newlyweds chance to reconnect after the run-up to their big day, especially now they haven’t got the added stress of organising a wedding to think about.

4. Things they can keep

Keepsakes are really meaningful wedding gifts for any newly married couple. An incredibly thoughtful option for wedding gifts is to put their invitations into a stylish photo frame for them to display proudly in their home together. A digital photo frame is another great option that will allow the happy couple to upload all of their wedding photos and have them appear in rotation in their home. These sorts of wedding gifts allow the couple to see reminders of their special day, morning, afternoon, evening; whenever they pass the photo frame.

These wedding gifts are really personal presents that will show the newlyweds what they mean to you. Another great option is a wedding card box that they can display in their home and revisit on their anniversary to remind them of their special day. They’ll really appreciate the thought as well as being appreciative to have a handy place to keep all their wedding cards!

5. A virtual gift

While things are starting to get back to normal with the lifting of restrictions, we know that there are still factors at play that may prevent wedding guests from being able to attend the ceremony. A great way to celebrate the happy couple is to send them a gift card to let them know you’re thinking of them on their special day. If you really want to add that personal touch, with a One4all Digital Gift Card, you can record a video message to send with your gift card to communicate your best wishes and excitement for their special day. They’ll be thrilled to see your smiling faces and it will mean a lot to them that you went to the effort to be part of their celebrations.

We know wedding gifts can be difficult to decide upon, but with these tricks up your sleeve, you can find the presents that will set married life off to the best start possible. If you want to give them something special, but also want to give them the option to choose something themselves that you know they’ll love for years, gift cards and eGifts are a truly thoughtful way to go. Plus, with Gift Card Store, you can send the newlyweds a heartfelt message with your gift, letting them know how happy you are for them and wishing them all the best for their future together.
