Unique Wedding Gifts For A Couple Who Have Everything


Buying a gift for a couple who are in the later stages of their lives can be difficult. Not only have they been through one or more marriages are so likely up to their eyes in past gifts, but they’re also at a stage in their lives where they’re not moving into their first house and likely don’t need to furnish it again. It begs the question, should guests even bring gifts? And if so what do you gift a couple that already has everything? Well, it has to be unique and it has to be special. These are two prerequisites that surpass the value that money attaches to a gift. After all, there’s nothing more sentimental than receiving a personalized gift from a good friend or family member that shows attention and care.

A book of memories

Memories are worth more than any number of material items. Therefore a book of memories is the perfect gift to surprise the bride or groom with. It’s quite an open-ended gift as you get to choose which memories to include. Perhaps you’d like to create a timeline of the bride and groom’s relationship, complete with photos and quotes? Or maybe you’d like to fill a book with snapshots of your relationship to the couple in question. Whatever your choice, ensure that it’s a physical book rather than simply a blog or website. Having something tangible that they can leaf through adds that extra layer of thought. It doesn’t have to be difficult either. Simply get your book printing done by a company like print24, find the necessary content and let your imagination go wild!

A tray of different artisanal goods

We all have that foodie friend or couple, and if they’re the ones getting married then a tray of their favorite artisanal goods is an excellent treat to indulge in after saying “I Do.” Companies like Mouth offer a different array of treats and snacks which include different sweet and savory goods, not to mention exquisite bottles of wine and champagne. It’s the perfect way of letting the couple know you understand their tastes, and no doubt a great treat for a honeymoon!

35mm film photographs of the wedding

We talked about tangible earlier, and what better tangible gifts than actual photos of that wedding that you can hold? You’d need to be a bit proactive with this gift and, throughout the special day, play private photographer and snap photos of the guests and the couple. However, the end photos are to be special beyond words. Besides, film photos are back in vogue so it’s hard not to love them. Just pray that the photos develop properly!
