Tips On Selection Of Creative Wedding Gifts That Will Be Appreciated

Instead of giving the normal gifts of cutlery, kettles, and ash trays, why not consider more creative wedding gifts such as an engraved glass or a glass trophy? Instead of giving something that will be used without any thought of who gave it or perhaps just put away, give something that will stand out and will ensure that the couple has something to remind them of the special day for the rest of their lives.

Personalised Gifts

A stylish set of glasses in a wooden box with engraving done on the box ensures that the man in the house will love the gift forever. Creative wedding gift selection is about thinking outside the box. By personalising any of the gifts that you plan on giving that day through a personal message, the date, occasion, and the couple’s name engraved you ensure that the gift will eventually also become a family heirloom.

Stylish Smaller Gifts

Another idea for creative wedding gifts is that of a special key ring custom made at a supplier such as Trophy & Medal Boutique. They will want a key ring for the home and if it is done stylishly will appreciate it even more.


Trophies are not only awards, but make for special wedding presents as well. Don’t just think about the normal trophy; think about wooden plaques, glass trophies, moulded figures and even wedding bells. Also consider a his and hers DIE cast belt buckle or perhaps you want to go further for the business couple with a set of diaries and business planners in leather and engraved.

Consider travelling bags with their names engraved. Honeymooners will love to have bags and you can even go a step further by selecting travel cases and ensure that their names are engraved, embroidered or attached on golden or silver metal badges. Creative wedding gifts are about personalization of the gifts possible when selecting unique items and presentation thereof as available from Trophy & Medal Boutique.

It doesn’t matter how beautiful the wedding invitations are, if the invites don’t support the underlying theme and colours of the planned ceremony and reception, you will have to work harder to create a coherent theme.

Guest List
