Does the lucky couple love chocolate? Would they love a gift like this? Like, who wouldn’t?
I am absolutely obsessed with the creativity that comes with this wedding gift. It even has a little chocolate poem. Etsy always has the most amazing gifts for you to choose from, you can get lost in some of the suggestions.
Actually, gifting spoons as a wedding gift is a really popular idea. Cutlery in general – usually as the lucky couple is likely to either be redecorating or even moving, it’s all about fresh starts.
These spoons are super cute, and will likely just become a little souvenir from their big day. A simple but cute idea.
6. A Lovespoon
Lovespoons are a traditional present, which is often given with romantic intent/to signify romance.
Find one that is decoratively carved to perfectly suit the couple. This eternity love spoon is so beautiful. You can even get these spoons personalised.
7. Gift Basket
Etsy is also perfect for gift baskets – creating them for you, and even delivering them for you. Isn’t that the best for last-minute gifts.
One of the cutest ones I found was this wonderful one from HeritageBeeFarm on Etsy. Complete with Raw Honey, soap, beeswax lip balm, honey candy, beeswax candle, or a heart soap. Even in a cute little bucket.
This is perfect for one of those amazing rustic/outdoor weddings.
If you know the couple loves gardening, is moving into a place with a garden, or wants to get a garden – this will be the most perfect gift.
It’s always fabulous to gift the newly-weds with things they will actually use, so functional items like this are just perfect.
You can even get these customised with a lovely little message or their names.
9. A Money Box
Let’s help the newly-weds get their funds back to normal after their big day and their honeymoon.
Money boxes are a really great way to actually save money. They can also become a piece of decor for their home, and a great little memory.
Just like the scrapbook above, this revolves around adventures and travels – so this is something to consider when getting this money box.
You can get this personalised.
Lastly, jewelry is always a popular wedding or anniversary gift. I thought these earrings were just incredible. They make an amazing last-minute gift idea for a lesbian wedding, but they’re just as perfect to give to the bride in a non-LGBTQ ceremony.
You can find necklaces, hair clips, anklets, and even nose rings. Whether the couple wants to match or not is completely down to them as individuals. If you think this is something cute, it’s definitely worth an option.
I hope this showed you that all hope isn’t lost. You can find amazing last-minute wedding gifts, that are personal and thoughtful.
My top pick is definitely this Personalized star print poster. If you put in the couple’s anniversary, they get their own customized star map, with an adorable little doodle of them.
Personalized gifts, like this, are such a fabulous option. Obviously, give gifts like this a week to be created so perhaps not super last-minute.
