Unique Wedding Gift Ideas

Need unique wedding gift ideas? Are you tired of sticking to a wedding registry? Or, is your good friend getting married and you were hoping to give a gift that was more special and unique? Check out these unique wedding gift ideas!

If they’re newly engaged –

Wedding movies are a great gift, particularly for someone who is newly engaged and just about to start the arduous process of planning a wedding. Most of these films are lighthearted and fun romantic comedies that will help the bride-to-be remember to relax and enjoy the wedding process, instead of becoming a bridezilla!

Wedding books that help plan the wedding are extremely helpful for the newly engaged, as well. They give the bride-to-be ideas and helpful suggestions to help her plan. In addition to these books, though, if your bride is a bit of a bookworm, what about a book about a bride-to-be: there are romantic comedies, short stories, murder mysteries, and classics to choose from – the possibilities are endless!

For the Wedding or Shower –

Make a fairytale storybook of the bride and groom’s journey as a couple… to their own fairytale ending. This is for the creative and artistic types and could be combined with a photo scrapbook and/or artistic drawings. Be creative!

If creativity is not your strong suit, how about treating the couple to a spa day (or weekend!) to relax together. They’ll need it after all the wedding planning! It’s the ultimate treat!

Another fun gift is to have the couple star in their own romance novel. There are a few websites dedicated to doing this if you scour the internet. For a fee, they will write your bride and groom into their own hot and steamy novel!

Have an artist paint a picture of the happy couple! You can have the couple sit for their portrait or have an artist paint one from a picture.

Want to give the couple something more practical? What about giving the gift of frequent flier miles? It might help the couple with their honeymoon plans or allow them to take a trip later on!

Great Wedding Gift Ideas

You’re looking for a special wedding gift, and don’t want to simply choose something from the registry. You want unique and memorable wedding gift ideas.

Every couple is unique. So here are a few surefire tips to help you find wonderful and unforgettable wedding gift ideas that match the couple perfectly.

Today’s weddings are as unique as the people involved. The wedding day is one of the most memorable and special events in a person’s life; and the means by which the day is celebrated and executed, are no longer routine. So you’ll want to make sure your wedding gift ideas as are tailored to suit the event and the couple.

If you know the theme of the wedding, your shopping time could be cut in half. Simply choose a unique gift, they both will enjoy that concentrates around the theme.

If you don’t know the theme of the wedding, think about the couple. What is their couple “identity”? For example, if they take a trip together… Do they go camping, skiing, golfing, to the beach, to the mountains?

Another approach… what’s their entertainment style? What do they do in their free time? The concept is to come up with something you know they both love and then choose your gift to match the topic. Here’s a sample:

A friend of mine knew my husband and I had a small vacation home on one of the North Carolina beaches. She also knew that whenever we could get away, that’s where we went. For our wedding present, she gave us a book full of photographs and information on the North Carolina coast. Inside the book were two gift certificates, one for a day at the spa for me, and one for a massage for him.

It has been almost fourteen years and we still have the book and remember the gift.

If you want your gift to be as memorable as their wedding day, here are two gifts that will do the trick:

Buy the bride and groom engraved keepsake boxes to safely place the special items they’re sure to accumulate as the day goes by. The boxes will safely and securely protect precious memories of the day they married for years to come. For something very special, as you’re choosing the boxes, go beyond the typical keepsake box. Specialize each box to depict the personality of it’s owner.
Watercolor wedding paintings make a sentimental and unique gift. You give a gift certificate that allows the bride and groom to send in pictures from their wedding day that are used to do a watercolor painting. The couple will have a one of a kind painting of their favorite photo that keeps the memories alive for years to come.
