Ah, love is in the air . . . it’s wedding season!
If you’ve found yourself invited to upcoming nuptials, but are having trouble finding unique wedding gifts, you know how difficult it can be to choose the perfect present. Boring, predictable housewares certainly won’t fit the bill—you can’t just buy them a blender and call it a day!
These thoughtfully out-of-the-box presents, however, are sure to be as unique as the soon-to-be newlyweds:
Heirloom Wedding Blanket
Hand-woven and one of a kind, Moroccan wedding blankets are given to bring blessings and good luck to marriages. Bring that tradition into the modern age (and into the home of your favorite couple) with this handmade Moroccan Pom Pom Cotton Throw Blanket, which works perfectly as either a bed covering or a cozy throw. Give this to the newlyweds on their wedding day, and it’s sure to become an heirloom in their growing family.
Vintage Picnic Basket
What’s more romantically old school than a picnic?
This classic, stylish Parisian Picnic Basket is both sophisticated and quirky—just like the couple you’re shopping for. Dress it up with some colorful vintage-style plates and cups, and gold flatware.
They will get years of use out of it.
What better way for those newlyweds to get to their picnic destination than by taking a long ride through the park? Let your friends channel their inner Parisians by getting them a matching set of durable and light-weight Payette Bicycles in vibrant green. They come in multiple sizing options, accommodating riders from 5’2” to 6’5”—and for each one sold, a bicycle is given to a child in need. Wedding gifts don’t often do double duty as thoughtful and charitable presents, but these bikes do!
Sentimental Wall Art
Does the couple you’re shopping for love vintage design? With this Cinema Lightbox, they can replicate the look of old movie marquees in their own home, changing the message to fit their mood. It’s so cool, it makes mundane sentiments like “Remember to buy milk” look grandiose and cinematic!
Have a couple of world travelers on your hands? These GiGi New York Personalized Passport Covers, made of handcrafted leather and available in a number of colors, come with their respective initials embossed in gold in the corner. Their sleek and sophisticated design hearkens back to the golden age of travel—making them a vacation in and of themselves.
