Choose the couple’s first wedding song lyrics to be printed and framed with this beautiful gift from Yours For Keeps. With the added option of adding a personalised message at the bottom, this gift is fitting for the couple that wants to add a sentimental something from their big day to their gallery wall.
6. Prepare for picnics with this personalised hamper
Know a couple that enjoys the great outdoors? One of our favourite unique wedding gift ideas is this beautiful personalised hamper, which is the perfect present for the couple that likes to spend their time exploring outdoors whatever chance they get. This lovely gift is the gift that keeps on giving and is made from fine steamed willow with faux leather clasps and comes with plates, a bottle opener, cooler bag, cutlery and glasses. Cheers!
7. Get cosy with a keepsake blanket
This wool blanket from Stabo makes an excellent present for the newlyweds who love to cuddle up, whether outside under the stars or by a log burner indoors. The wool blanket comes in a range of stylish colours, and you can add a super personal touch by personalising a leather patch with an embossed message in the corner to make an item that is certain to be treasured and used for years to come.
8. The classic photo album
Our very own luxury photo album is the perfect gift for the sentimental couple who love to collect and reflect upon their memories. We love the idea of filling the album with both keepsakes and polaroids from the wedding day, a gift the happy couple can treasure forever. In addition, the album comes with the option to add a loving message on the inside page in gold foiling and with super thick pages made to last.
9. A charming ‘map of love’ keepsake box
Every newlywed couple will want to keep memories from their special day forever, and this keepsake box is the perfect gift for just that. The beautiful handmade gift can be personalised by choosing a map location – such as where the happy couple met or their wedding venue! We love the idea of filling it with letters of advice from guests and trinkets from the couples’ wedding day.
10. Wedding garden
Last but most certainly not least in our unique wedding gifts guide is a wedding gift great for the green-fingered! This beautiful gift from The Gluttonous Gardener will help their garden thrive. It comes with a beautiful selection of flower seeds and an engraved, personalised slate for use in the newlyweds’ garden.
