Wedding Gift Ideas for the Couple That Has Everything
We know it's not always easy to find a great wedding gift for a pair of newlyweds. Get inspired by these clever ideas from our editors.
So what exactly do you give a Hollywood actress and her filmmaker beau as a wedding present? When celebrating Kate Bosworth and Michael Polish's big day in Montana, the editors at Martha Stewart Weddings stuck to one of our tried-and-true mottos: Make it personal. For a groom with roots in the West and a bride who loves to cook, we chose a cast-iron skillet in the shape of the Big Sky state from American Made Award honoree FeLion Studio.
Who will love it and why: Your social-media-loving friends will swoon. They can use their Instagram feeds to pull together content for a totally customized album to highlight their relationship and memorable moments.
Smart Travel Souvenir
The gift: Harlex Double-Sided Luggage Tags
Who will love it and why: This gift is great for any couple going anywhere after they tie the knot. People don't typically buy themselves nice luggage tags. Celebrate their new union (maybe with a set that reads "The Sterns") in style.
Who will love it and why: The couple that needs to start saving money because they can’t resist buying quirky finds -- like this metallic farm animal -- will appreciate this one. This grown-up piggy bank is a symbolic gesture of encouragement for newlyweds building up a new nest egg.
The gift: Lobmeyr Candy Dish from E.R. Butler & Co.
Who will love it and why: Anyone interested in design will love storing sweets in this marvel. Oswald Haerdtl first premiered the delicate design for these glass vessels at the ″Exposition des Arts Decoratifs″ in Paris in 1925. How's that for a converstation starter?
Essential Kitchen Ingredients
The gift: Malle W. Trousseau Kitchen Set
Who will love it and why: Cooking fanatics will fall for this kit because it has everything. The 43-piece kit (expertly curated by French couple Isabelle Mathez and Frederic Winkler for their daughter who was moving out and in need of kitchen supplies) includes the best kitchen staples from around the world. Danish mixing bowls! French ladles! A Japanese grinding stone made from lava!
His and Hers
The gift: Love and Victory’s Decanter Set
Who will love it and why: This suits any couple that enjoys a good cocktail (or even those who don't drink but like beautiful glassware). Bonus option: The set is available for same-sex couples, too.
Modern-Day Boom Box
The gift: Jawbone’s Mini Jambox
Who will love it and why: Musicphiles and tech-savvy couples will dig the latest from Jambox’s lineup of high-powered (and super stylish) speakers. These pocket-size speakers come in nine jewel-toned colors, but the real beauty of it is the Bluetooth connectivity and one-touch streaming. Sounds awesome, right? Exactly.
Inspired by Nature
The gift: Buccellati Silver Clover Leaf Dish from Micheal C. Fina
Who will love it and why: The outdoorsy duo who appreciates fine things as well as natural motifs will have no problem finding a place for this piece. These one-of-a-kind pieces are handcrafted in silver by a 100-year-old family-operated business.
The gift: Haptic Lab’s City Blanket
Who will love it and why: That couple that began their love story in a certain city or tied the knot in one would totally appreciate this custom quilt, sewn in the outlines of some of the world's best destinations. This gift is on the pricier side, but it will last for a long time and has a lot of sentiment built in.
Who will love it and why: A couple with an eye for modern art will appreciate this beautiful vase, which they can use to display fresh flowers during the spring, or allow to stand alone as a decorative centerpiece sans blooms.
