Buying a wedding present that will be liked is really easy. Extraordinarily easy because in almost all cases the happy couple will have spent a considerable amount of time putting together a wedding list. A list that is made up solely of items they are hoping a lovely guest like yourself will buy for them. But where’s the fun in that?
If like me, you are guilty of going off the list…. well that’s a whole different ball game and much more dangerous. Even riskier than braving going off list is to get them something bespoke. Something personalised. Something non-refundable and non-exchangeable.
So you’re feeling bold? Here are my top 9 bespoke items to choose from.
I absolutely love this chopping board, it feels very classy and is a great item the couple can display on the side at their home. Priced at £69.95, it feels even more expensive and is well worth the money.
The Oak and Rope company offer a huge range of personalised items from Welly Boot Racks to Wine Racks, all of excellent quality. This notice board priced at £135 is perfect to go in a newlyweds kitchen.
3. Address tile
This address tile is perfect as a table mat. If the couple have recently bought a house you could use the address, along with the date of the wedding or alternatively, use the church address they got married at. Priced at £28 it is very reasonable.
Ideal for a couple who like their country sports, these photo frames stand out on a mantle place and will look stunning with a wedding photo in them. Priced from £70 they are not cheap for a frame.
Why not have the couples wedding invitation put on a bespoke tray for them? Suitable for very grand couples (if they have a double-barrelled surname or did a Times newspaper announcement of their engagement they are likely to be the type). Priced at £180!
A unique gift that shows how the stars aligned on the day the couple got married. Cheesy but fun, and good for the sentimental types. Priced from £49.
Help your friends celebrate with wine to open on an anniversary year. Either pick your own wine to go in the box or let the company help you.
If you’ve access to their wedding flowers such as one of the bridesmaid bouquets, why not turn these into a paperweight so the couple can keep them forever. Prices from £100.
Turn their church and wedding venue into a watercolor which they can hang on their wall as a memory of the day. £55.
