Weird and Wonderful Wedding Gift Ideas

Are you stuck on what options you can give as a gift to the happy couple? Well, The Old Rectory Wedding Venue in Essex have just the gifts for you so that you can gift something truly memorable and special at the same time, without breaking the bank!

Finding a gift to give to a loved one is hard, especially when there are so many others buying gifts to. Long gone are the days when wedding gift lists were easy to follow with their limited options and when traditional gifts like toasters were at the top of everyone’s lists because now there are so many weirder and wonderful gifts on the market for you to play around with.
Have Some Fun with Your Gift Choices

The best gifts are those that you can have a bit of fun with, as long as those receiving the gift have the same humour or at least will enjoy the gift you are gifting. Some may class fun as board games in the form of traditional Trivial Pursuit (couple’s edition) and Monopoly and other fun gifts that hold an inside joke to the couple for as long as you have known them.

Other fun gifts can include something that the couple can enjoy and get creative with. One example is a scratch-off map that will allow the couple to scratch away countries and cities they visit together as a couple. Not only will this look great on their wall but they will also remember the cool person that bought them the gift every time they scratch off a new place.

Tip – a new gift that is slowly becoming popular is gift cards for fun activities like theme parks, museums and even Netflix, so the newlyweds are never stuck for something to do!
Personalised Gifts from The Heart

Any gift that is personalised with the newlyweds’ initials is sure to be a hit with the new couple. Think out of the box and rather than get personalised frames and towels that others will buy, get unique and personalise something useful that they would have never thought of themselves.

Some of the most popular unique personalised items on the web include keepsake boxes for all of their wedding favourites, ring boxes, custom cheese boards and even wine boxes for special milestone events like their first wedding anniversary.
Get Artsy and Creative with It

In 2018, the most popular gifts being bought are those that include arts and crafts to really show true effort and thought behind a gift on their special wedding day. Our favourite is a personalised illustration of the newlyweds at their chosen wedding venue, The Old Rectory in Essex. With lots of picturesque spots around our venue, you can either wait until after the day to get the perfect shot or pick one beforehand to gift on the day.

Other artsy gifts include the couple’s favourite song or first dance lyrics in a beautiful frame to treasure forever and whole books dedicated to their love story. It also links into the first wedding anniversary which is paper which you can get more inspiration from here in our other blog.
The Gifts That Keep On Giving…

Rather than gifting just one gift, why not gift a subscription service to your loved ones? Some interesting subscription boxes include fresh veg delivered every month, coffee parcels, curry spice sets and even socks on a monthly basis!

We’re not saying you have to gift them for the whole year either, you can choose 1 month, 2 or even 6 with the couple having the opportunity to carry on the subscription further if they fall in love with it. Open their eyes to something new, introduce them to new flavours and be on their mind as the best gift givers for months after the big day!
