Now, since you’re here, it’s okay to admit it… you need some help when it comes to buying a gift for your wife on your wedding day. Unlike us simple creatures (admit it, you’d be perfectly fine getting some new shirts! Or maybe some new boxers) women require a little more thought and care when choosing a gift for them, and that’s because they deserve it!
Of course, that doesn’t make it any less easier, which is why we went ahead and listed down our top 10 gifts for your wife on your wedding day!
So, grab a notepad, get ready to listen, and throw away those coupons you’re thinking of giving to her (no, really, throw them away). Let’s get started!
Now, we know it’s not the most unique gift choice out there, but if you’re thinking of top gifts for your wife on the wedding day, then you can’t go wrong with jewelry, especially if it’s custom-made! Depending on your preferences, you can also add her initials, a special date, or even a hidden message!
What’s great about customized jewelry in general is that while it’s a great reminder of your love and commitment, it’s also just an elegant gift that we’re sure she’ll appreciate! Props if you go full-gentleman by putting it on her!
Admit it, we’re all a sucker for a good love letter, no matter how young or old we are. So, if you want to release your inner wordsmith, then why not compose a number of heartfelt letters for her before rolling them up and placing them inside a bottle?
You can even express your love, dreams, and promises for the future, and she can open one whenever there’s a special occasion, or if she just wants a little reminder throughout her day. Now that’s a keepsake we’d want for ourselves (and just saying, we wouldn’t say no to a few love letters sent our way as well…)
They say that sometimes, experiences are better than material gifts, so why not surprise your wife with a pre-planned weekend getaway? Choose a location that holds significance for both of you or opt for a dream destination she has always wanted to visit. Whether it’s a cozy bed and breakfast, a beach resort, or a cabin in the mountains, a romantic escape will always remain an exciting gift, and is definitely a great way to welcome your new life together!
Here at Photo Kings, we’re all about #supportingthearts, which is why another great gift for your wife on the wedding day is a commissioned artwork piece! The piece itself could be about a special moment in your relationship, like the place you first met, a sketch of your engagement spot, or even a portrait of the two of you. You can even just tell the artist a description and let them work their magic on the canvas.
Whichever direction you decide to go, a personalized artwork remains a great gift idea, and we’re sure it’d look great hanging on the wall of the home you’re about to share together as newlyweds!
When you start living together after being wed, you may find yourself suddenly swamped with chores and tasks that it can be easy to lose some of your personal time. This is where a gym membership comes handy, as it will not only serve as a motivation to stay healthy, but will also give your wife some productive and personal time for herself after you settle into married life.
Of course, you also have the option of going with her if that’s what she prefers! Either way, it’s good to stay fit as well. You’ll thank yourself for it!
Now, staying within the budget during all of your preparations for the wedding probably meant that you had to put off your shopping lists for the time being. Luckily, all of that is behind you now, which means you can now treat your lady to a shopping spree after the wedding!
Now, this is easily one of our favorite gift ideas for your wife on the wedding day, because not only will she choose the gift for herself (you can rest easy now buddy), but it’s also your first shopping spree together as husband and wife! Exciting!
If your lady loves her perfumes, then another great gift for your wife on the wedding day is a custom fragrance that represents her personality! The great thing is, there are countless brands that offer a personalized scent creation experience, which lets you choose the specific notes to make a fragrance that is made for her only!
This way, every time she goes out and wears the perfume, she’ll be reminded of your wedding day and the effort you put in that gift! Just make sure you know what scents she likes at first… maybe doing some sneaky spraying of her perfumes when she’s not looking will help you…
Looking to get creative? Then compile a scrapbook filled with photographs, ticket stubs, and mementos from significant moments in your relationship. You can even go the extra mile by writing about these significant moments in the scrapbook.
Either way, a memory scrapbook is a great way of celebrating your shared history and adventures. Just make sure there’s room for the newer ones you’ll have in the future!
Here’s something unique to gift your wife on your wedding day: a star named after her! These days, there are plenty of online services that let you officially register a star in the night sky. And can you imagine staring at the night sky together before pointing out a star to her and saying that it’s named after her? How’s that for romance?
Of course, there’s actually only one body that controls the names of these stars, but we think it’s still a sweet gesture nonetheless! And you get to have a cool certificate as a keepsake!
Does your lady love taking photos or documenting moments? If so, then let’s haul you towards the nearest mall so you can get her a nice camera. And while there are countless options, we suggest going for a polaroid, as we’re sure she’ll enjoy the photos getting instantly printed! That, and we’re sure she’ll enjoy taking photos when you eventually go on your honeymoon together!
Oh, and here’s a tip, maybe ask your wedding photographer for some camera tricks? They’re the experts, after all!
Finally, let’s end our list with a practical gift for your wife on the wedding day: cookware! Of course, we’re not just talking about any old cookware set that you can buy for cheap. Instead, opt for something sturdier and more long-lasting, especially since she’ll be using them in your new home! And who would say no to a nice meal prepared by your wife? Delicious meals are a way to a man’s heart, right?
Oh, and the same goes for women, so make sure you brush up on your cooking skills and prepare meals for her too! Happy wife, happy life!
Need some more reminders? Well then, here are some dos and don’ts to keep in mind when choosing a gift for your wife on your wedding day:
Consider Her Tastes and Preferences – Start by looking into her personal style, hobbies, and interests. Is she athletic? Is she the creative type? Does she like traveling? Or maybe she likes staying at home instead? From here, narrow down your choices better by checking whether she prefers something sentimental or practical.
Plan Ahead – Trust us, you don’t want to be the husband that gives last minute gifts with no care put into them. So, make sure you start planning the gift well in advance to avoid any stress. This is especially important if you’re going for a customized gift, as those often require extra time.
Personalize Whenever Possible – A little personal touch goes a long way, even if the gift itself is practical. For example, you can always find a way to make things more personal by adding an engraving, some customization, or even just a thoughtful note. This shows that you put in extra effort into choosing something just for her, which is always a win-win!
Choose Quality Over Quantity – Finally, prioritize quality over quantity when choosing a gift. Always remember that a high-quality gift that will last her for many years (even the rest of her life!) is always worth more than multiple items that you just randomly picked up.
Don’t Procrastinate – Keep in mind that procrastination can lead to rushed decisions, which can then lead to disappointment. So be wise and plan head, buddy!
Avoid Generic Gifts – Look, we know flowers and chocolates are a go-to classic, but we suggest opting for something more unique and practical for your wedding day! Instead, those generic and/or simple gifts can be given on all of the dates you’ll have after!
Don’t Overspend Unnecessarily – Of course, we don’t recommend overspending, especially if it’s beyond your budget (save that for the honeymoon, bud!). Keep in mind that the thought and care you put in the gift is much more important than the price tag.
Avoid Items Without Significance – Lastly, don’t go picking a gift just because of its aesthetic appeal. It should go without saying, but always make sure your wife will find some use or at least appreciate the gift you pick out!
And that concludes our list for the best gifts for your wife on your wedding day! That said, we’re pretty sure that as long as you put some thought and care into it, then your wife will still love whatever gift you get for her. After all, the point of a wedding day gift is to add a special touch between the both of you.
