Unique Wedding Gift Ideas: Off The Registry

When it comes to wedding gifts, whether it’s for a shower or the big day, it’s hard to be creative because of that big list of gifts they already have laid out for you AKA The Registry. Now, we’re not knocking registries, because at least you know that what the bride & groom has on that list, they want…but what if you could get them something they couldn’t register for? Something personalized and something unique? So go for it, take a risk and wow them with something…

<<  in love with these personalized heart-shaped messages & pictures

<< a great “after the wedding” gift to remember their big day – an illustration of a wedding photo

<< give them “their day” and they’ll own the rights to their wedding date

<< guests do the videotaping for your wedding video- wedit

<< give them something to toast with on their 1st anniversary – wine & wooden box  with their date 

<< make the bride & groom the star of their own romance novel

<< give them “the wisdom of others” – a great option for a group gift

Creative Wedding Gift Ideas for the Extra Special Couple

Wedding Gift Ideas

Sometimes you need to STEP AWAY from the Registry! Here we have some unique gift ideas for weddings (with discount codes!) Show the people you care about the most how special they really are and give them something they will treasure forever.

Studio Jones Custom Canvases

Studio Jones1 on Etsy has some phenomenal gift ideas for wedding gifts. I really love how they take your photograph & put it on canvas. They can add words to fill in your body. It can be such a personal and meaningful gift. Perhaps a gift the bride and groom can give each other. Maybe the vows could be on the canvas. So many creative ways to personalize. $169 & ready to hang Get a 15% OFF discount code here

Lovebird Custom Champagne Flutes

Romance meets old world craftsmanship. Lovebird personalized champagne flutes are such a meaningful gift for that very special first toast. Have Mr. & Mrs. with the new last name & date hand engraved on each glass with lovebirds perched overhead. Jennifer, the artist, is a glass engraver from Tennessee and prides herself on using the age-old art of stone-wheel engraving. With newer technologies this has become a dying art, but this intricate process gives this custom glassware its beauty and character. A perfect one-of-a-kind wedding gift for the new couple or for a special anniversary. $42. 10% OFF code on The Gift Insider

Chrissy Ann Ceramics Custom Ring Bowl

So sweet. The ring dish is the updated version of the ring bearer pillow & has more sentimental uses. This handmade ceramic ring dish is carried by your ring bearer at the wedding & then used again by your bedside or sink, for your rings. Chrissy Ann, the artist, can customize the dish with the last name or first names, nicknames or dates. Simple, elegant and handmade. Great anniversary gift too. Comes in a sweet little gift box. $25 15% off code on any items on ChrissyAnn’s Etsy website

Art with Heart from Celadon Home

This is so unique & a little tough to explain. it will end up being a 12″x12″ very personalized piece of art using your photo. First you send in a photograph & Michelle, the unbelievably creative artist from Phoenix cuts & folds the picture into hearts, mounts it under plexiglass & personalizes two of the hearts with any message you want. If you give it to your bridesmaids, each picture could be of you & them together & a “thank you” in a heart or “BFF” in a heart. So many ways to personalize it. Photo used is mounted on back & will say, “this art piece was created just for you, using this photograph.” This is unbelievably fabulous. All this for $49.99 10% OFF Code on The Gift Insider

Custom Cake toppers from The Younique Boutique

Why have a pre-fab wedding couple on top of your cake, when you can be up there instead?  Custom cake toppers are sculpted to look just like you. Younique Boutique’s cake toppers were just featured on VH1 Wedding Wars and in Bride magazine. You can have them made realistic or exaggerated with a little bit of humor. Heads & hairstyles are custom sculpted based on your photos and clothing & flowers are painted on to match your wedding ensemble.  Made of 100% polyresin material & embellished with non-toxic paints & embellishments. 7″ tall & looks just like you. Great gift from the Best Man & Maid of Honor.  ~$179.99 10% OFF code on The Gift Insider

Personalized Hangers for the Bride from Wisconmon

I love it when a gift is so special & so reasonable. This hand crafted beautiful wood personalized hanger is definitely one of those. Perfect for an engagement gift or a special gift for each bridesmaid. Maybe the hanger that their bridesmaid dress goes on? This Wisconsin artist gives such attention to detail and skillfully hand molds a pretty lowercase font. 12 character limit on the name and hangers come in maple $25, walnut $26 or cherry $27.  I’m a sucker for gifts that show how much you care.  10% OFF Code on The Gift Insider

Custom Kiss Prints from DNA11

What could be a more romantic & personal gift than giving a couple their 2 sets of lips artfully framed? This very progressive company is DNA11 &  they are always coming up with creative ways to mix art, science & creativity. For a wedding/engagement this has got to be one of my top ten. It could be an unforgettable anniversary gift too. Pure genius. It is also fabulous with one giant kiss print. A romantic tribute to anyone. It’s art & it’s personal & it’s so unique. Kiss Portraits start at $299. 15% OFF Code on The Gift Insider

Vintage Lockets from The Dedication Company

The Dedication Company customized keepsake bracelets are a special way to honor your bridesmaids with a personalized touch. They are classic and elegant with a working vintage locket and include options for personalization with a monogram pendant and birthstones. Birthstones can even be customized to match wedding colors or bridesmaid dresses.
