The Gift They Didn't Know They Wanted

Wedding season is upon us. Three on our calendar this month! It seems that by the time the wedding rolls around and after showers have been thrown, the selection from a registry can get pretty slim…especially if you procrastinate and wait until the last minute to get a gift. Before going rogue, make sure the couple is open to gifts not on their registry. Cash is always an easy gift, but you may have the gift they didn’t know they wanted! Here are some fun and unique suggestions!

Beach necessities

Perfect for the couple who is honeymooning on the beach in the Caribbean or another sunny spot!  Find a great beach bag; add a couple of beach towels, sunscreen, fun drink cozies, a magazine or two and you are set!  And the gift is wrapped in the beach bag!

Couple’s cooking class

For the couple starting out and maybe new to cooking, this gift not only gives them a skill, but a fun date night too! Check with retailers in the couple’s hometown or nearby cities for classes offered at some kitchenware stores or check local colleges offering culinary classes. Wrap the gift card with a couple of fun aprons, a personalized cutting board or a new cookbook. Let the couple choose the date and time, or make sure the classes can be rescheduled if needed.

Restaurant gift cards

This is great if you have a larger budget to spend or going in with another couple or two for the gift. Buy gift cards to their favorite restaurant or a few from different restaurants for future date nights. Purchase a cute calendar, write in a few date nights then clip the gift cards in each month. Some couples may not have the extra funds for dinner out; they will appreciate the thought and the meal! We like the cards that have several restaurant options available. Unless you know the couple very well, giving them options is the way to go.

A Firm Foundation

If the couple attended the same university (maybe where they met), honor them with a brick that has their new name that will live forever on campus. Many alumni associations and parks offer these personalized bricks when an old building or space is renovated. It will be a fun trip for them to plan to see their brick in person!

For wine lovers

A Wine of the Month Club is perfect for the wine enthusiast. It’s the gift that keeps on giving, and a great way to introduce new wines to the couple. Several online clubs offer memberships as gifts so the couple can customize to their preferences.

These are just a few of our ideas, what has been your favorite wedding gift to give or receive?
