I always struggle to think of unique and original ideas when it comes to wedding gifts for couples.
I love giving gifts and when it comes to birthdays, Christmases and anniversaries I try to put as much thought into them as possible, but wedding gifts for couples always have me stumped! In the end I usually return to the terribly unoriginal idea of money or vouchers. Whilst I think there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this, I want to be able to give gifts that are something to remember, a reminder of their journey into wedded bliss.
So with the help of alternative gift list Zankyou, we have created this list of 10 fabulously original Wedding gift ideas. You will NEVER be stuck for ideas again!
1. Rent a Car for a Honeymoon or Road Trip
We have all witnessed the classic scene, just married and driving into the distance followed by a cluster of cans. What if you could drive away in your dream set of wheels completely funded by the guests who just showered you with rice and confetti? Now it’s so easy to crowd fund whatever you want. Doesn’t that beat a spare toaster and an overly expensive set of ‘his and her’ towels?
2. Contribute with a Charity Donation
In this very materialistic world that we live in, it’s easy to get carried away adding items to your gift list that you really don’t need. Maybe you would prefer your guests to donate their contributions to a charity that’s close to your heart. Many people already donate every month to a charity of their choice, so a bulk payment from your guests with wedding favours thanking them for doing so, is a lovely and selfless way of doing it.
3. Take Lessons Together
Lessons are such fun couple activity, not only will you learn something new, you may discover a new lifetime hobby that you can continue to do together? Diving, Dance, Cooking, Massage and Guitar lessons are just a few ideas of the type of lessons you could try your hand at.
