Whether you’re looking for the perfect wedding gift, honeymoon present or housewarming treat for a newly married couple, we’ve got you covered. Here are 10 perfect gifts that the loved up duo will adore.
1. Framed photos
A beautifully framed photograph is always a welcome gift. If the happy couple has recently had professional engagement or wedding photos done, save them the trouble of printing and framing by doing it for them.
Pro tip: don’t skimp on the frame. Go to professional photo framers to get a custom frame made for the occasion. You’ll get a much better-quality frame, have more control over the final look and the photo will be well protected for years to come.
2. Memory box
Looking for a gift for a sentimental couple? Consider a memory box – somewhere they can place ticket stubs, polaroids and heart-warming letters they collect over the years.
Make sure to get a decent sized box so they can keep using it for years to come. Take it one step further and have the box engraved with their names or a meaningful illustration.
3. Custom star map
What’s just as unique as the couple themselves? The spread of stars in the night sky on the date they were married!
Order them a custom print of the night sky on their special date and have it printed on high quality paper. Don’t forget to finish it off with a good quality frame that suits their style. If you aren’t sure what style frame will go best with the print, chat with your local picture framers for ideas.
4. Personalised address stamp
Is your couple moving into their first home or do they already own a house together? Consider giving them a personalised address stamp that they can use on the reverse side of their mail.
To make the stamp a special keepsake, avoid cheap-looking plastic stamps and go for something that looks elegant and classy.
5. Wine subscription
Wine lovers will appreciate a yearlong wine subscription. Not only will you be giving them delicious bottles of wine, this is a gift that will keep on giving all throughout the year. They’ll definitely feel the love.
If wine isn’t their thing, but you’re on board with the subscription idea, look for other subscriptions that might be more up their alley. Choose from cheese, books, spirits, beef, matching underwear and so much more!
6. Date night ideas
Couples that have trouble making decisions will appreciate helpful date night ideas or a set of date night dice. All they have to do is pull out a date night suggestion from the box or roll the dice to decide what they’ll be doing.
Looking for ways to personalise this gift? Simply get all the friends and family of the love birds to contribute date night ideas in their own handwriting. That way the newlyweds won’t just have the pleasure of pulling out a unique date night idea – they’ll be able to see who wrote it for them too.
7. Embroidered towel set
If you’re wanting to give the newlyweds a luxurious gift, plush towels are a great option – and they’re made even better when personalised with embroidered initials. 100% cotton towels between 500-700 GSM are usually a safe bet. If you can, feel the towels with your own hands before buying to make sure they’re up to standard.
Other classy gifts that pair well with embroidered details include silky bed sheets, cushion covers, bath robes and slippers. But you can get as creative as you want – matching denim jackets, sneakers and beanies will also go down a hit.
8. Game for two
Do the newlyweds love to spend their date nights in? Get them a game they can play together. Conversational card games are a good choice, as are quirky two player games they’ve never heard of.
If your couple loves hosting, consider getting them a game they can play with a group. Look for high rated games that suit their personality for the best bet, whether that’s cheeky adult games, absorbing strategy games or hilarious games for the whole family.
9. Picnic set
Every couple needs a reliable picnic set that they can use for romantic date nights, gatherings with friends and weekend trips away.
Opt for a large basket with inbuilt storage for cutlery, cups and plates, plus plenty of room for wine, a picnic rug and dishes of food. If the couple is an adventurous type or have kids in tow, get them a backpack picnic set instead so they can keep their hands free.
If you know the couple already has a picnic set, consider gifts that can up their picnic game. Great ideas include a sturdy insulated thermos, portable stove, picnic table and wine cooler.
10. Original artwork
Artwork is a great gift for any occasion. For newlyweds, personalised framed artwork is even better. Commission an artist to turn the couple’s favourite wedding photo into a stunning digital print – or go for a custom pet portrait they can display proudly on their wall.
Other great original art ideas include: embroidered family portraits, word art featuring their vows and first home paintings. Whatever you go for, make sure to display it properly in a quality wedding picture frame.
Whether you love giving practical gifts or presents that are sentimental and romantic, there are so many ways to show your love for a newlywed couple. Finding the right gift isn’t always easy, but with a bit of creativity and careful planning you can give these newlyweds a gift that they’ll love and cherish for years to come.
