Finding the right wedding gift can be quite the challenge. Finding unique wedding gifts for couples who already seem like they have everything they need can be even harder.
Back in the day, it was the norm for couples to start off with nothing and work their way up. These days, the average marriage age is far older and most people are well established by the time they tie the knot. What’s more, about 80% of couples marrying today live together before getting hitched, meaning that they’ve already got their house and home set up. Which brings me back to the original point: What to buy for the couple that is in their late 20s, has been in the workforce for about a decade and have everything they need?
When I got married, my husband and I received no fewer than 4 toasters. If you need some inspiration for some cherished unique wedding gifts, here are some surprisingly original and useful ideas.

The Experience Gift
Experience gifts have grown hugely in popularity recently. Whether it’s an unforgettable dinner for two, a river cruise, parasailing, or whatever you think will tickle the happy couple’s fancy, you can be sure that they will be thrilled with the chance to spend quality time together, and websites such as Red Balloon make it easy to choose which experience will be the best fit.
Unconventional Furniture Ideas
Most new couples have all the basics, but that doesn’t mean that they won’t be thrilled with some less common items to spice up their home. For example, something exotic, like a Japanese Tansu, or Chinese medicine cabinet can add flare and character to a home. Alternatively, with entertaining at home being all the rage, some stunning dining chairs from https://www.brosa.com.au/collections/dining-chairs will provide that touch of class at a surprisingly reasonable cost.
Professional Photo Shoot
Every couple will have professional photos of their big day, but once the dust has settled on the wedding craziness, the return to everyday life can be a bit of a letdown. With that in mind, what better way to remind the new couple that they are special than to have great quality photos in a more relaxed setting, that really bring out the true character of their partnership?
A Class of their Own
Any couple will love to indulge the opportunity to learn and grow together that fun classes offer. Whether it’s a cooking, Latin or ballroom dancing, or flying, they will thank you for an unforgettable and educational experience.
The Gift of Giving
If the wedding couple is the philanthropic kind, then they will surely be touched by a donation to their favourite charity in their name. For the environmentally minded, American Forests offer a way to plant trees to offset your carbon footprint, while an organisation such as Doctors Without Borders can give them the satisfaction that they are literally saving lives.
Whatever you choose, there are few better ways to let the newlyweds know that they are special than through a thoughtful, original gift that they will always remember and will serve as a permanent reminder of one of the most special days in their lives.
