5 REASONS WHY HANDMADE WEDDING GIFTS ARE THE BEST TYPE OF GIFTS (+ WHERE YOU CAN FIND THEM!)
We already know how much you guys love handmade items, but have you ever thought about the importance of a handmade gift? What makes it so special? With the Royal Wedding happening on Saturday (Did you hear?!) and the launch of the Amazon Handmade Wedding Shop we couldn’t help but think about why we love handmade gifts so much more! Here’s just a few reasons why you should consider shopping handmade…
1. They’re More Thoughtful
Handmade gifts often have a lot of thought gone into them, you would have really researched that gift for who you’re buying it for and when the person you love opens their present, they will immediately recognise all of the efforts that went into choosing it!
2. They can often be personalised
Again, building on the more thoughtful point, when something is personalised with someone’s name or something unique to them it makes all of the difference! It really adds that something extra to the gift and makes it completely special to them!
3.They’ll Treasure It
Some of my favourite gifts from friends are ones that have been handmade and it’s true that I definitely treasure them more, they become keepsakes and gifts full of memories instead of something bought quickly for the sake of buying a present.
4. They’re great for the person who has everything
We all know someone who’s hard to buy for right? Someone who seemingly buys themselves what they want when they want it, making it near impossible to buy them something?! Well I’ve got a few of these people in my life but buying a handmade gift ALWAYS puts a smile on their faces! It’s the things that they would never think to buy for themselves that work the best, like a print of their first dance song or a charm bracelet with their role in the wedding on.
5. They’re unexpected
It’s all about the surprise when giving a handmade gift and it’s likely that the receiver would have never seen something think like it before! Handmade gifts often bring with them plenty of emotion, laughter, tears the lot!
So, what can you expect from Amazon’s handmade wedding shop? Well not only do they have plenty of gifts for the bridal party like personalised champagne bottle labels, eye masks makeup bags, etc but there’s also plenty of awesome wedding decorations, hen party decorations, cake toppers, honeymoon accessories, jewellery, stationery and MORE!
