You’re going to a wedding this summer and after a last-minute change of your go-to wedding outfit to something much lighter and heatwave-friendly, have only one thing left to do: buy the gift. But they’ve got the toaster, the 12-piece dinner set, the coffee maker (and a jet ski is slightly out of price range) so what do you buy the couple that has everything? We think the key wedding gifting is personalisation. Every couple is different, and we’re here to give you some tips on what to get the newlyweds based on some of their personality traits and interests. Not only are we 99.9% sure they will not have these personalised gifts, but you will have given thoughtful items that they will treasure, that will make them smile for years to come. Have a read through and see which wedding gift suits the happy couple.
For the couple who are always jetting off to hot beach spots, where each month there seems to be a new post of them swimming in glorious turquoise waters in paradise, we have the gift for them: personalised beach towels. Why not try this idea: one image of them spread over two towels! Use our online creation tool to make it, and add your own text to give it an even more personal touch.
This will be a big image spread over two towels, so make sure you ask for the original photo or a high-res image to get the best quality image as possible, not a screenshot from their Instagram – eek!
For the couple that starts every day with a cup of tea or coffee and love lazy Sunday mornings laying in bed with a cafetière at the ready – these two personalised “Mr & Mrs” mugs are the gift for them. Our social media exec Kate had the pleasure of gifting her friends a set at their wedding – pictured here with their son, looking very happy with their personalised mugs!
Choose a picture from your friends’ social media feeds or dig out an old one from your collection as a nice surprise, and give them the gift of their own happy memories to wake up to every morning!
Great for a last-minute gift as you can have them made within the hour in participating stores* – see below to find out where, or buy online.
For the couple who love being around friends and family and love to make their house a home for more than just them. This is the couple who always hosts the BBQs and parties and have plenty of memories of adventures to call on, many of which you may have enjoyed with them. A print with a group shot of your friendship, or memorable experience with them both would be the perfect way of making them feel that they are always among their family and friends.
This is the couple who like the finer things in life. This couple can be seen sipping a cool glass of Chardonnay on a yacht (or their back garden) or bringing a full-bodied red to a sophisticated dinner party. Make sure they have a personalised Wine Box to take with them with a photo of one of their happiest moments printed on. With our online Creation Tool you can add their name and wedding date to make it an extra personal, transforming it from a thoughtful gift to a treasured item bound to be brought out every wedding anniversary! Made to fit a 750ml wine bottle, not included 😉
We’ve all been there – you come downstairs the day of the wedding to find that the gift you lovingly chose and wrapped has been ruined by a flooding washing machine / chewed by your pet poodle and now you have nothing to give! Do not panic, there’s no need to run to the shops and speed-buy a gift – we have a great way of turning this scenario into a positive. We think a gift sent after the wedding can be even more meaningful because you can use the photos from the day. The laid-back couple will be fine about a gift sent after the wedding! Why not print that gorgeous picture you took of them being showered in confetti onto a canvas? A canvas print is a thoughtful way for them to remember their happy day, every day.
Make sure you check out our post on wedding photography and capture the shot perfectly.
