Are you looking for a non-traditional wedding gift? Do you want to elicit the oohs and ahhs of everyone?
Of course, you could go to the couple’s gift registry and pick something from there, but then your gift wouldn’t be unique.
Here are some tips to help you come up with some great unique wedding gift ideas, but first you must ask yourself these questions:
-what do you know about the couple?
-what do they like?
-where are they planning their honeymoon?
-what is their lifestyle?
-what’s their personality?
Here are some gift ideas to ponder:
1) Gift certificates to a spa for the bride and groom are great before or after the wedding. The wedding day is often stressful, so you could offer a day at the spa to prepare them for the wedding day or they could use it just after the honeymoon as they prepare to resume their daily activities.
2) Keepsake Box- As time goes by, memories begin to fade and what better and more unique gift than a special box where they can safely store all those precious mementos that become more cherished as the years go by? This box is perfect for things like: the marriage license, special photos, vows and all those other special keepsakes that often get lost as time passes.
3) Etched Glass Wedding Invitation- Have their wedding invitation or special verse engraved on a glass sculpture. This will be treasured for years to come and definitely unique. Or, for a little variation, get the actual invitation and make a homemade project out of it; mounting it on a glass plate and finishing it with a matching colored paint.
4) Name A Star For The Couple- The Universal Star Registry offers “couple stars” as part of their many Star Packages. You can choose from over twenty constellations you would like the star to be in including all twelve zodiac signs, Ursa Major (Big Dipper) or Ursa Minor (Little Dipper), Orion and many more. This gift package also has maps, a certificate of ownership, a fact sheet and helpful hints for viewing the stars. This is truly a marvelous gift for the special couple on their special day!
These are just a few suggestions and tips to help you pick some unique wedding gifts. Try to remember and take these into consideration the next time you want to give the perfect wedding gift to your friends or family.
