Before a wedding, the couple-to-be comes up with a wedding registry containing the gifts they want their guests to get them. Most of those items are usually things they would like for their new homes or things that have personal value.
However, some guests might feel like those gifts are too general, and they might think about going off-registry. If they do so, they have to ensure that their gift is not only useful to the couple but also unique, which could be an overwhelming task.
One of the main things the guests should look for when looking for a unique gift is one that the couple will personally relate to. They could also try looking for something that the couple keeps talking about but has never gotten. For guests who are looking for off-registry gifts, here are some of the ideas that will make them stand out;
Love and marriage are about learning and understanding each other more, which could sometimes be challenging if the couple is busy with work. Guests can help them learn more about each other, especially during the first year of their marriage, by buying them a journal, where they have to write something they have to do together every day.
That way, they will always have some alone time together, either doing something they love or learning something new. The couple will enjoy not only the gift but also their love together. The guest can customize the journal by having a photo of them printed on the cover, their names, or their wedding date.
Memories are some of the things that remind people how much they love each other and their love stories. Guests can help the newlyweds to always remember their love story by getting them a set of wine glasses etched with some of the most important cities for them.
For example, they can etch the city where they met, where the husband proposed, their first date, or where they are getting married. That way, every time they share a drink, they can also share those beautiful memories.
When a couple gets married, their house officially becomes a home. There is no better way to close the couple’s wedding than officiating their home. Guests can have a custom-made home sign with their new official name and the date when the house officially became their home. They can also have another design of a home sign, where they write their names and a beautiful message to act as a home décor piece.
As a friend, a guest may have captured moments of the couple that they did not, and most of them could be special and memorable to them. They can collect those photos and have them printed on a customizable collage to remind them of all those moments. To bring the message of love home, have the collage in a heart shape. They can also have the frame and background customized to match the style and décor of their home.
Just like the wine glasses, this is a gift that reminds them of all the special and memorable locations in their relationship. Guests can get a customizable map of the world, with pins that have the special event written on it. That way, they can attach the pins where every event took place, for example, their first meeting place, first kiss location, first date, or proposal location. The guest can also have blank pins to add more memorable events and locations on the map over time. On the map, they can have their names or photos on it and a beautiful message.
If the couple loves stars and the sky, this is a perfect and unique gift for them. Choose a special day, like their wedding, proposal, or meeting day, and have a map of the sky that day. The guest can also give them a cheese board with the same sky map on it. This reminds them that their union is special and that it was written in the stars. On the maps, have a beautiful message or a quote they love saying.
A guest can get the newlyweds a set of wine bottles with customized labels on them to help them celebrate their special days, for example, first wedding anniversary, first child, first Christmas as Mr. and Mrs., or their first house. They can also get them a set of candles that will help them set the mood on different occasions. For example, you can have candles for date nights or meditation time. They can add a twist by adding some love emoji’s on the labels.
