The peak of wedding season is almost here, and if you have an invitation or two it’s high time you started thinking about presents for the happy couple. Whether they are family members, friends or acquaintances, a personalised gift is a terrific way to give them something truly personal on their special day.

If you look at any list of the most popular wedding gifts online, you will find a good mix of practical and decorative items – all with a homely feel to get the newlyweds set up in their own house. I think the best wedding gifts are those that the couple will keep and treasure for many years – either because they are using them or because they have them on display in their home.

Something which is both a decorative gift and something that will be used is a pair of crystal wine glasses. This is something special that the couple is sure to enjoy – and they’ll look stunning in a display cabinet when not in use.

Engraved crystal wine glasses

Why not choose a gift set with a pair of wine glasses with a nice bottle of wine to go with them? And to make the gift that much more special, have the glasses engraved with the names of the happy couple and the date of their wedding! This will make the set a lovely surprise that the Bride and Groom will really cherish.

Alternatively, photo frames are always welcome gifts – especially at weddings. We have a selection of glass and silver photo frames in stock that make delightful wedding gifts, and all of them can be engraved with names, dates or a short message. To really surprise the couple, have the frame delivered before the event and on the Big Day take your photo of the two of them after the ceremony. Before the reception, have the photo printed, put in the frame and wrapped and ready to give to them in the evening!

Personalised photo frame

If you think this is possible on the day of the wedding, it would be really special to present the newlyweds with the first photo of the two of them as a married couple in their own engraved photo frame. It might be a little more effort but it is sure to be appreciated.
