Seven Unique Wedding Gifts for Every Happy Couple

Wedding gifts usually come down to a few typical presents every couple either registers for or expects to get, and everyone is getting tired of it (yes, the couple included). If the couple getting married hasn’t registered and you have the opportunity to be creative in choosing the gift, here are some ideas that are definitely everything but boring!

Mr. and Mrs. coffee mugs

Coffee-obsessed couples will love having their own, personalized coffee mug to enjoy and this is your opportunity to give it to them. Every morning with their first sip, they’ll not only have a matching mug set to enjoy the wonderful smell and taste of coffee together but they’ll be happy to remember you. Cute!

Traveling kit

Couples that love to travel together will love getting something they’ll be able to use on their traveling adventures; be their favorite guest by putting together a traveling wedding basket made of the most useful Go Travel gadgets like a money belt, hidden holster wallet, flight socks, cable and lock, etc. Think “him & her” gadgets for a 100% success score.

A cooking gadget

Couples who enjoy cooking (together) will appreciate getting an awesome kitchen gadget like an elegant pot set, a juicer, a posh cutlery set, etc. Make your friends happy with a personalized gift of this type and you may be invited for dinner more often than you’d anticipated.

A wine box

Dedicate a wine box to your wine-loving friends for their wedding day by picking two or three of your or your friends’ favorite wines and boxing them up. This elegant wine container is a perfect gift for the couple who will be encouraged to toast to their love drinking your super delicious wedding wine.

A gramophone

Music-obsessed couples with an appreciation of a quality tune and a retro feel will love getting a vintage gramophone or a collection of their favorite artist’s records. Start the search at vintage stores and high-end garage sales, then move onto Amazon and eBay.

A custom made cheese board

If the bride and the groom love cheese and you know they often organize some wine and cheese tasting parties, then this is the perfect gift for them. Find the shape of the board you like the most and print or carve their names into it. You can even add a poem or a doodle that fits their personalities.

Personalized Bedding

Give the happy couple a set of personalized sheets with their name embellished on the covers and pillowcases. Wish them an always-cozy bedtime, a careless sleep and a passion we all dream of. Make sure you opt for high-quality fabrics.

Hopefully, the list above helped your creative juices flow. Choose a personalized gift, one worthy of your friends’ interests and joy. Good luck!

The Ultimate 2017 Holiday Gift Guide

Baby it’s cold outside, which means it’s time for the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping!

Finding the right gifts can be quite tricky depending on what type of person you’re buying for, so I’ve broken down this year’s Holiday Gift Guide into a couple common categories, to give you a head start on gifts for: the techie, gamer, the long term lover, the DIY-er, the foodie, the cocktail enthusiast, the “we just started dating”, and the brainiac.

The Techie & Gamer


Google Home Mini: “Ok Google, make Christmas dinner for me.” Maybe it can’t make your holiday feast, but this gadget can pretty well do everything else, hands-free.

Nintendo Switch: Gamers have been buzzing over Nintendo Switch since its release a year ago. Give the gift of gaming on a plane, a big screen at home or a tablet.

Oculus Rift: In the words of singer, Jamiroquai, “futures….made of….virtual insanity.” Oculus rift is one of the straight up coolest gifts on the market for any techie. Step into another reality with this VR, one of a kind, headset.

The “we just started dating”

To buy or not to buy, I say go the safe route and buy, even something little is a good call!

Gift Card – This is the one time a gift card is acceptable and probably most appreciated. You’ve been on a couple dates, so you have an idea of what makes this person tick, but don’t want to get too specific and/or over the top.

Bottle of Booze: You’ve probably gone for drinks with your new boo, and know what their preferred drink of choice is. Why not treat them to their favorite bottle of whiskey, wine, or growler of beer!

Flowers/Chocolate: These two gifts are the epitome of a nice gesture and both are simple, inexpensive and casual, so if your date doesn’t get you anything they won’t be too embarrassed.

The DIY God/Godess

DIY date night: You may not be the craftiest person yourself, but boy, can your partner make a killer bar of soap. Step into their realm and do some DIY as a couple – here are some ideas to steer you in the right direction; candle making, fresh pasta making, face masks. Your partner will be so thrilled you took an interest in their passion.

Scrapbook: You know he/she has kept every concert stub, pamphlet, wristband and needs a place to put these things! DIY-ers LOVE scrapbooking. Buy a joint scrapbook and add some special mementos to get them started. Even if they decide to rearrange them, it shows you tried and they will love you for it.

Organizer: Just pinterest DIY shelf organizer and boom, buy any one of those shelving units for your crafty beau. They will be elated that you understand their desire to be organized.

The Food Lover

Ultimate dining experience: Perhaps your foodie has a favorite restaurant that you two save for “special occasions” because it is trés chere for a casual date night. Treat your S.O. to a feast they’ll never forget!

Gourmet Spice Rack: I bet you never thought of this one. Although it may not be the sexiest of gifts, it’s definitely spicy and a foodie’s dream gift set. You can find beautiful artisan sets here and here.

Pizza Stone: If they don’t like pizza, I have a hard time believing they are a food lover. Pizza stones are a no mess cooking stone that will amplify your homemade fresh pizza pie! If you want to really impress your date, buy them a stone that can be used on the bbq. Bbq pizza is one way to a food lover’s heart.

The Brainiac

The Hottest Board Game: But which game to buy? For those who are totally lost, start with the Pandemic series of games, or the classic – Settlers Of Catan.

Astrophysics for People in a Hurry: Written by the man himself, Neil Degrasse Tyson, explains the nature of space and time. This also holds the  #9 spot on the New York Times Best Nonfiction Sellers List.

Wicked Smaht T-Shirt: If your S.O. hasn’t seen the film Good Will Hunting yet, I highly suggest you make them watch it before you gift them this t-shirt to avoid them missing the reference and jumping straight to correct the spelling on the t-shirt.

The Long Time Lover

Scavenger Hunt: This is a winning idea that I stole from a friend who seamlessly pulled it off. He ended the scavenger hunt by asking my best friend to marry him NBD *sobs. Now you can do this yourself (engagement optional of course) by creating a whole day scavenger hunt of all your firsts together – first date, first kiss, first “I love yous,” by planting puzzles and clues around the city.

Frame the Vows: I’ll admit, another idea taken from my father which had my whole family in tears one Xmas morning. My parents originally wrote their vows on the back of a hydro bill (real romantic) and after 30 years of marriage, my father found them in the attic one day. Without telling my mother, he had their vows professionally printed on beautiful parchment paper and framed. Sentimental pieces are the perfect way to warm up the heart this holiday season.

Matching PJ Onesies: There’s no better way to scream cutest couple than to have matching pjs on Xmas morning. You and your beau will want to stay in these jammies all day and cuddle! Bonus, you reap the benefits with this gift too.

Cocktail + Wine + Beer Enthusiast

Personal Carry On Cocktail Kit: Fly high with this wonderful little gem of a kit which contains a bar spoon/muddler, cane sugar and small batch bitters along with a linen coaster…because your beau is classy like that. All you need to do is order a mini bottle of bourbon from the lovely flight crew and you have yourself x2 old fashions.

Wine Tasting/Brewery Tour: Set up a beer tour and tasting flight for two! Or if your date is a wine connoisseur of sorts, look into the closest winery tour and book a spot for the both of you. You can even make a weekend trip out of it, as many wineries have B&B’s near by.

Bespoke Barware: Oak aging barrels, copper mugs and stainless steel ice cubes anyone? Every cocktail enthusiast loves to add to their barware. Check out the latest pieces Bespoke has to offer!
