Sentimental and Thoughtful Wedding Gift Guide: Seen on Fox5 San Diego


Wedding Gift Guide The Gift Insider

Sometimes you want to give something more special than the things they’ve asked for. For those really close to your heart you want to give something thoughtful and personalized that is sure to make an impact. We’ve come up with some creative ideas that show the happy couple or bride-to-be just how much they mean to you.

Wine for a Wedding

This is such a cool way of toasting the newlyweds or anniversary for 1st, 3rd & 5th year. It’s essentially a beautiful message, inside a beautiful wooden box, with a bottle of wine inside & it all gets better with age. The boxes are an awesome personal addition to your decor. Simple process. Pick the box style, pick the wine, customize your box, engraved outside with year of anniversary & engraved inside with a special message that is sealed until they open it on that special year. Just thinking about what you may want to say to them in 5 or ten years makes this such a beautiful gift of love. You can also order just the box and add your own favorite wine.


Personalized Wedding Hangers by Burlap Babe
Personalized wedding hangers have been a big trend lately, definitely going to be a staple in the wedding gift scene. Take sentimental photos with the brides wedding dress and keep the hanger as a sweet keepsake. The wire can be bent into almost any phrase; whether it’s “Mrs. Future Last Name” the couples names, bride, etc. While there are a lot of wedding hanger companies out there, Burlap Babe is San Diego based and does some unique embellishments on the mantle and edge of the hanger to match brides dress or wedding theme. She also has hangers for the groom, flower girl, etc. [$25 – $28] Promo Code: BBGIFTINSIDER for 15% OFF
