Gift Inspiration Published Jun 06, 2024

Looking for wedding gift ideas for couples who haven't got a wedding list? No problem. We've got you covered with our favourite unique, thoughtful and personalised wedding gift ideas for 2024, all made in the UK by some of our favourite small businesses.

Do people still give wedding gifts?

Yep. They certainly do! Wedding gifts are most definitely still a thing. If you've been invited to a wedding, you should at least show up with a card as a token of your gratitude. It's traditional to send a gift either ahead of the big day or in the few months following. 

What is considered a good wedding gift?

Well, the answer to this one depends.

Cash is always going to be appreciated, of course. You can't go wrong with money inside a beautiful wedding card. And if that wedding card is personalised, unique, beautiful and can be framed, well that's even better! Check out our wedding cards here

What not to give as a wedding gift?
This is a tricky one! There is, of course, a whole load of wedding gift etiquette to bear in mind. Although wedding gifts are not mandatory, they are sort of expected. And unless the couple have specifically requested no gifts, you should probably not show up empty-handed. If they have requested no gifts, a wedding card is definitely the way forward. 
A few other definite no-no's for wedding gifts- 
  • Self-help books. Even when sent with the best intentions, any relationship advice type of gifts may not be received in the way you intend. 
  • Toasters and other household appliances (unless they are on the couple's gift list. Many couples live together before their wedding day and already have a toaster and kettle)
  • Re-gifted items. Just don't. 
  • Joke gifts, or inappropriate things that'll make the grandmothers blush. Probably best to avoid anything...ahem... intimate. 
  • Any gift that is just for one of the two people getting married. The idea of a wedding gift is that it is a gift for both of them to enjoy and share, you know, together.
