Flower vases for all home decor styles

A vase is a nice touch in any home and there’s the option to buy something simple and neutral that works in any space. Or if you know the couple’s home decor style you could find something that perfectly ties into their colour scheme.

Flower subscription

Now for something to put in the new vase… There are plenty of florists in the UK who offer subscriptions and you can set this up for someone else up as a gift.

For example, Freddie’s Flowers offers three different sizes of bouquets and lets you choose the frequency, from two deliveries in one month, to one delivery every month for a year.

Personalised name doormat

Assuming the newlyweds now have the same last name, a personalised doormat is a lovely way to welcome people into their home. With lots of different styles to choose from, you can find a design that fits their style (and will keep the postman right when delivering letters!)

Date night idea cards

Once the excitement of the wedding is over, the newlyweds might find themselves at a loss without wedding planning filling their time. To get married life off to a fun start, these date night cards have enough suggestions for a date every day for one year.

A photo frame for wedding pictures

After such a special day, the newlyweds will surely want a few photos of their wedding on display. You can gift them a photo frame on it’s own for them to fill or if you have a nice snap together from the big day it would be sweet to include that.

Picture frames in various sizes

With an iridescent white colour, these Anthropologie frames give off wedding vibes. Mother-of-Pearl Picture Frame, £20-£32 depending on size

Wine subscription 

If you know a couple who is looking to get into wine, you can’t go wrong with this award-winning wine subscription from Savage Vines.

You can choose how many bottles to include a month, how long to run the subscription for, as well as whether you’d like all red, all white or a mix of both.

Gift an experience

There are some couples who really don’t need any more stuff, and some who insist that your presence on their wedding day is better than presents. But if you’d still like to give them something special, why not choose an experience?

From restaurant vouchers, to spa days and even ziplining activities, there’s something to suit every couple. Virgin Experience Gifts has a handy guide of options which are perfect for couples to enjoy.

If you can’t choose, Virgin Experience Days also offer gift cards and vouchers which gives the couple freedom to book whatever they fancy.

It might seem like a while away, but it’s nice to commemorate a first Christmas together as a married couple, and there are lots of beautiful Christmas tree decorations available on Etsy. Make the gift even more special by including their new married names and their wedding date.
