Unique Wedding Gift Ideas: 25 Gifts that Stand out

Ah, weddings. I love attending weddings. But choosing a great gift for the happy couple? Not always so easy. What do you do when you want to give a unique wedding gift that the happy couple actually loves?

That can be a challenge. Until now, anyway – here’s a list of unique wedding gift ideas that will surely be enjoyed and appreciated by many couples for years to come.

When choosing a wedding gift, rule #1 is to tailor it to the tastes and interests of the couple getting married.

While most couples will offer a registry to select gifts from, it’s acceptable to deviate from the list – as long as the gift reflects the couple receiving the gift.

Don’t choose an unusual gift just for the novelty – make sure they’ll really like it. If you’re unsure, stick to the registry or a more traditional gift.

When you know the couple well enough to judge how they’d feel about a unique gift – go all out! Unique gifts come in all styles, prices, and “wow” factors.

Here are my favorite creative wedding gift ideas. Not a toaster in the bunch.
