What Is the Perfect Wedding Gift?
As COVID-19 restrictions ease, weddings as we once knew them are back on. The vows are exchanged, the cake is cut, the dancefloor is packed, the gifts are shared - but wait, what do you get for the newlyweds?
With so much time off from celebrations it can be hard to remember just what makes the perfect wedding gift. We've compiled a selection of unique items that make the perfect gifts for all newlyweds to help you make an informed decision.
To begin with though, the perfect wedding gift is always one that is both practical and personalised. Although a cheque or a bottle of wine will be appreciated, a unique gift that lasts longer will often be more memorable and special for the couple in question.
A hanging ceramic with the first names (or new surnames!) of the newlyweds and their wedding date makes a great personalised gift. It looks beautiful and lasts forever, and the recipients can reminisce on their date whenever the ceramic catches their eye - even 10, 20, 30 years down the line.
A personalised wall banner with the newlyweds surname(s) and their date of marriage goes down a treat. Due to the minimalist nature of the design, this gift is suitable for all homes - you don't need to be worried about it clashing with the newlyweds' existing furniture and decorations.

These durable linen soft feel cushions make the perfect comfortable addition to all newlyweds' homes, with the name and date giving it that all-important personal touch.
If you know in advance what the wedding playlist will look like - or if you can get a hold of some of the newlyweds favourite tracks - this personalised mixtape cushion is also a personal favourite of mine.
Are the newlyweds big fans of the kitchen? If so, go for a personalised apron. These can be customized with either their first names or new surnames, and make both practical and fun gifts.
This apron is made from high-quality, linen feel fabric with an adjustable buckle around the neck to make sure you get a perfect fit. It also comes with a large front pocket perfect for handy storage to be kept safe.
A whiteboard is the perfect way to plan and keep on top of the week - making it both a practical and unique gift for the happy couple. These durable whiteboards can be personalised with the family name or a quote - and are available in a wide range of colourful and/or minimalistic designs.
Last but certainly not least, personalised indoor and outdoor signs make a fantastic gift. With a wide range of high-quality, vibrant and glossy designs to choose from, you'll be sure to find the perfect fit for the newlyweds.
