Wedding Gift Idea

Your resource for finding a great wedding gift idea for couples.

Here comes the bride! That means it’s time to shower the newlyweds with gifts. However, with many couples getting married later in life -- nearly five years later on average today than in 1970 according to the U.S. Census Bureau -- they have accumulated many of the common wedding gifts, such as dishes and linens, leaving guests with the challenge of finding the perfect gift.

Luckily, there are a vast number of unique gifts for those who have it all.

Shower Them with Gifts
Shower the new couple with luxury -- literally. Help turn the everyday task of showering into a relaxing and luxurious experience with a new showerhead. Products such as Moen’s new 7-inch rainshower with InvigoRain spray ($56-$68) provide a superior, invigorating rainshower experience that provides full coverage and envelops the entire body in high performance water sprays. Or for those who prefer different spray options from their showerhead, Moen’s Inspire 3-function showerhead, available in both handheld and fixed versions ($24-$34), will allow the newlyweds to choose the distinct spray setting that suits their mood -- “Relaxing” wide spray, “Invigorating” concentrated spray and “Refreshing” combination spray. Both showerheads are available at Lowe’s.

Wine Not?
What better way to help the newlyweds toast their new life together and commemorate their special day than with an assortment of personalized wine? Offered from many local wineries or online at vendors such as, you can select an assortment of the couple’s favorite wines and then create custom labels featuring the newlyweds’ names, wedding date, photo or other messages to help remember their special day.

It’s most likely not in your budget to send the new couple on an exotic vacation or put a down payment on their new home. However, many newlyweds in search of high-ticket items may “create-a-gift” on the popular wedding registry site,, allowing you to contribute to these items. For instance, if the couple would like to “honeymoon in Hawaii” or “enjoy dinner for two,” you can purchase American Express Gift Cheques, a fancy -- and more polite -- way to give cash to help the couple obtain their grandest wishes.

Nurture the Newlyweds
After the hustle and bustle of wedding planning, most newlyweds need to relax and unwind. A great gift to rejuvenate their spirits is a spa gift certificate for a couples massage. And to make it easier, services such as SpaFinder ( allow you to purchase gift cards redeemable at a variety of spas throughout the country, allowing the couple to choose exactly where and when they’d like to enjoy their day of pampering.

Capture Life’s Many Moments
As they begin their new life together, couples will capture many wonderful moments in photos. But rather than displaying only small glimpses of their lives in still framed photographs, allow the newlyweds to present a full assortment of photos with a digital photo frame. These attractive frames feature an LCD screen to display a running slideshow of photos to keep their many happy memories alive.

So the next time you receive a wedding invitation don’t fret! There are a variety of new wedding gift ideas to help them enjoy their new life together.
