Five imaginative gifts for a newlywed couple

Choosing a gift for newlyweds might seem like a daunting task. What can you buy that will be special, unique and wanted – by them both?

The last thing you want is for them to receive three more identical items. Or hate what you’ve bought them. Gift shopping is even harder when you know the couple well and you want to show them how much you care.

Every couple is different, with their own personalities, interests, and tastes, so choosing a special item needs to cater to their needs or what they might need later on in their marriage.

You’re supposed to choose a memorable and practical present that will make an impression. So, to give you some inspiration, here are five imaginative gift choices for a newlywed couple. 

1) Fun appliances

Forget pots and pans, a quirky, fancy, beautiful and practical home appliance should put a smile on the faces of the bride and groom.

If they’re coffee lovers, why not get the latest coffee/cappuccino maker on the market along with its coffee beans or coffee capsules? Or, if they like to host gatherings outside in the backyard, why not get an outdoor BBQ set or an ice-cream maker? It will be a guaranteed hit at parties.

If they love experimenting with food, get a home pizza oven. Or buy a waffle maker for lazy weekend mornings. Whatever their entertaining style, you’re bound to find an appliance that will make itself at home.

2) Geeky gadgets

Smart homes are the future and many newlyweds would love to automate their home with a few clever gadgets. You could, perhaps, get them state-of-the-art home speakers that connect to a digital assistant and any other home appliance and gadget.

You may choose to help them clean their homes with a robotic vacuum or give the gift of clean air by getting air purifiers with aromatherapy infusers or a smart thermostat.

If they’re a couple that loves to work out, why not get them matching smartwatches to monitor their progress? High-quality cameras, with a vintage touch, can also be ideal for an adventurous couple.

3) Raunchy toys and games

You can never go wrong with vintage board games or new games that they will definitely use during game nights. However, if you know the couple well and feel comfortable going this route, why not take it a step further and get a gift that a raunchy couple will enjoy in the bedroom?

Sex toys have become less of a taboo these days, and you can find the most playful and fun sex toy gifts for couples online – whether they’re adult novelty games, vibrators, remote-controlled toys, lubricants, or anything you might think they’ll get a kick out of.

4) Creative gift boxes and subscriptions

If the happy couple is into trying out new things, why not buy them a gift set that they can explore and enjoy together? If they’re foodies, then get them an artisanal gift set that ranges from any type of gourmet food, beverages, alcoholic drinks, or treats and desserts. You can also get them an at-home spa kit for the ultimate relaxation.

Some gift sets can encourage a future hobby like tools relating to baking, bartending, BBQing, or gardening. Some gift boxes can also be subscribed to monthly if you’re feeling more generous, and they range from artisanal cheese and desserts, wine, books, coffee and tea, and spa treatments.

5) Personalized and customized trinkets

Nothing says a gift from the heart like personalized gifts. This is one gift idea where you can let your imagination run wild.

Some ideas you may consider are monogramming passport covers before they make their way to their honeymoon, or personalizing items they can use at home, like coasters, cutting boards, wine glasses, coffee mugs, whiskey sets, or even a door sign or a doormat.

You could get them a customized world map wall art where they can tick off where they’ve been or planned on traveling to. Or create a collage of their time together and add it in a vintage frame.
