Scouting for wedding gifts for your special ones can leave you mind boggled. With the plethora of options available in the market, it’s only justified to be overwhelmed. And while walking into a store you may not even have a clear vision of what you desire, leaving you all the more frazzled. To lend a helping hand, here is our edit of the most thoughtful gifts for newlyweds. Whether you’re looking for a holiday gift, housewarming present or first-anniversary gift for the newly married couple, we’re here to help.
If the newlyweds are moving into a new home, there’s nothing better than helping them set up the space. While many would be gifting sofa sets and home decor, standout by picking kitchen appliances for the couple. Go the extra mile and make it thoughtful as you pick out appliances that suit their personality and likes. For someone who loves to bake a stand mixer is a great idea, and for those who love BBQ-ing a wood-fired pizza oven or portable BBQ is a great idea. But if the couple is coffee lovers, what gets better than a coffee machine, and an air fryer for those who wish to be health conscious?
The one thing newlyweds desperately need after the wedding mayhem is a getaway or rather a staycation to unwind. It is also undoubtedly the best way to spend quality time together after the whirlwind of all the wedding planning. From intimate dinners to spa treatments, this makes for a thoughtful gift that the couple will truly appreciate.
When you can’t think of what to gift the newlyweds, play it safe. Silverware makes for one of the most obvious but appreciated wedding gift ideas — and is also an appreciating asset. You can opt for a deity in silver or simply pick a grand table set, glasses or spoons for the couple.
We all know that there’s nothing known as too many cocktail glasses. With constantly changing trends in the world of alcohol, each year brings with it new cocktail glass trends (and of course some age-old classics). From flute glasses Martini glasses, G&T Copa Glasses and wine glasses amp up the style for the newlyweds as you pick out gorgeous cutwork pieces. Let them couple serve their guests in style.
Personalised Passport Holders
The one thing newlyweds would be doing soon is travelling, so why not make their trip a little more special with a set of personalised passport holders and baggage tags? Stay away from the cliched personalised tags of Mr and Mrs/ Just Married and create tags with the newlywed’s surnames or a motif they love. Louis Vuitton and Goyard even allow you to customise the front and back covers!
For the couple who loves bubbly, let them raise a toast to their new phase of life as you gift them a bottle of champagne. To make an impressive statement, you can pick out a rare bottle or one with a hefty price tag to make the moment all the more special. And if we were to give our input, we’d definitely say that this expensive bottle will do the trick.
Yet another safe option for newlyweds setting up new homes is home decor elements. From photo frames to home decor curios, lamps or even cushion covers to art pieces. It’s a wise idea to ask the couple what they’d want to enhance their space.
Finally, if the couple has their own kitchen, then a luxurious dining set by Good Earth, Noritake or Villeroy and Boch is a no-brainer. Making for one of the best wedding gift ideas you can even choose to be flamboyant with your choices as you pick out a luxe dinnerware set that is enhanced with 18-carat gold detailing.
