As soon as the New Year comes, wedding season is just around the corner again. It’s time to start thinking about wedding gift ideas for the summer’s upcoming weddings now. Custom wedding gifts are unique, special and personal because you’ve created something that’s meant just for the bride and groom to commemorate their wedding.
Gifts purchased from a registry are always a safe bet because you’re getting the couple exactly what they want. But more and more couples are opting out of registries altogether or happily accepting gifts not on their registry. Some couple have been together long enough that they don’t need many household wedding gifts, while others encourage creativity and enjoy surprises.
Unique wedding gifts are more fun, surprising, and memorable. A unique gift should be something that you’re certain the couple doesn’t already have, not a gift like a toaster or wine rack. Custom personalized gifts often make the most unique gifts because they’re made to order just for that special couple.
Custom Wedding Cake Toppers
Give the bride and groom a gift that looks just like them. Custom wedding cake toppers are the perfect unique gift for any couple because they can be customized in so many ways. Custom cake toppers are individually crafted to look just like the bride and groom.
Cake toppers can be further personalized through a number of themes that reflect the couple in their wedding clothes or in their favorite work clothes, street wear, sports uniforms, and more. Toppers can be made to scale or in fun styles such as bobble heads for couples with a sense of humor.
Wedding party members can create a fun group gift for the bride and groom by giving them cake toppers made to look like the entire wedding party. Children, pets, and other family members can be included too. All you need is a clear portrait of each person you’d like to turn into a cake topper.
Bridal Shower Gift Ideas
Bridal shower gift ideas can be customized into unique, personal, and fun gifts too. Here are a few to get you started:
Wedding Signature Plates: Plates or platters can be hand-painted with caricatures of the bride and groom and then placed at the gift table for guests to sign as a non-traditional guest book. The couple will enjoy serving food to the same friends and family over the years on their special wedding plate or platter.
Thumbprint Guestbook Trees: Purchase a hand-painted leafless tree print that comes in its own matte and frame. The print is removed for the wedding and placed on a table with colored inkpads. Guests use their thumbprint to create a leaf on the tree and sign their names nearby.
Tiaras and Headpieces: Help design a one-of-a-kind tiara or headpiece for your sister or girlfriend to wear in her wedding. Your unique design is hand-crafted to fit the bride’s head and can include her veil.
