You’ve spent so much time planning the perfect wedding outfit that you completely forgot to get a wedding present! Now everything you can afford from the wedding registry has already been bought and you’re stuck. Or are you? A naked butler may not be an appropriate wedding gift, so here are some excellent last minute wedding present ideas any couple will love to receive.
It’s fast and easy to arrange a monthly subscription for nearly anything, including wine, cheese, chocolate and fudge, coffee and tea, flowers or beauty items. Choose something they like and make your gift the one that keeps on giving all the way through to their first wedding anniversary.
A Couples Class
The couple that grows together stays together. Sign the newlyweds up for an experience, such as cooking if they like to entertain but have never progressed beyond spaghetti bolognese and a takeaway menu. Or DIY if they are doing up their first home. Or even a language course. An alternative to booking a course is to give them a voucher so they can choose what to study themselves.
A Vintage Bottle of Fizz
Give your couple a stellar vintage they can enjoy on their honeymoon, or put on ice for another special occasion. Suggestions are Bollinger La Grande Annee 2004, or Bollinger La Grande Annee Rose 2005, and Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2006. A matching pair of champagne flutes is a thoughtful accessory.
Hotel or Restaurant Voucher
Does their honeymoon hotel have a spa? If so, treat them to some luxurious therapies to soothe away the stress of planning a wedding.
If paying for your outfit and accommodation has exhausted your budget, a booklet of custom coupons is an inexpensive yet personal present to show you care. They could include anything from playing taxi and collecting your friends from the airport after their honeymoon, to a day’s DIY help.
A Gym/Weekend Bag
People rarely splash out on nice luggage, especially when they have a wedding to pay for. Splurge on their behalf on a bag that’s the perfect size for chucking in the car for a couple’s weekend away.
Even with less than a week to go, you can still order a gorgeous personalised gift which looks like you’ve put weeks of thought into it, yet which is delivered in days. Not On The High Street has a broad range of ideas, as does Etsy.
