Choosing the perfect wedding present for the happy couple can be tricky – especially if they’re the type of couple who already have everything! For something they'll keep for years to come, your best bet is to look at personalised wedding gifts.
Of course, if the couple have a gift list, you can choose something from that. However, it's a lovely gesture to get them a little something extra as well, especially if you're particularly close.
A personalised wedding gift is memorable because it's unique to the couple. You can get them something that's a straightforward keepsake, like a print or sign for their home, or a memory box. You can also get personalised presents that have a practical use - kitchenware, for example, or scented candles to enjoy during an at-home date night. You can even find personalised gifts that are tongue-in-cheek, such as a newlywed survival kit.
If you love the idea of making it personal but aren't sure where to start, take a look at some of our favourite personalised wedding gift ideas.
1. Love Print - from £4, Etsy
A couple who aren't super-sentimental are unlikely to enjoy something along the lines of those popular 'I love you to the moon and back' prints, so get them this married life print instead. It's still romantic, just in a quirky way!
2. Watercolour Wedding Venue Sketch - from £55, Not On the High Street
Sticking with personalised prints, a hand-painted watercolour sketch of the couple's wedding venue will make for such a beautiful keepsake.
