10 Thoughtful Non-Registry Wedding Gifts

Summer is here, and that means… wedding season!!!!!

You can never go wrong with giving the couple something from their registry, but some of my favorite wedding gifts were the ones I didn’t even think of!!

It just adds a little character to the gift making it even more memorable :-)


Here are some ideas for thoughtful and unique wedding gifts the happy couple will love…


1. A Stock-the-Bar Gift Set 

Wedding registries are filled with beautiful glassware and chic bar carts, so think about giving the couple something to fill their glasses with! A gift set is such a great way to make their bar cart entertaining ready right off the bat.



2. A Pan-Organizer Rack

Protect their new, shiny nonstick-coatings on all their pans listed on their registry with a pan-organizer rack. It will also help keep the kitchen organized for a night in together or entertaining with friends.


3. An Echo Dot

Echo Dots are amazing for doing everyday things like playing music, controlling smart home devices, learning the weather forecast, and more by simply asking Alexa. Mine sits in my kitchen and I talk to her ALL the time! Probably too much!!

Not to mention this is so USEFUL! I get so much done using mine, help your friend see the endless opportunity that awaits!!!


4. A Cookbook

Whether it be a quiet breakfast or a romantic dinner, dining together means time together. Plus, the couple will put their wedding gifts to good use by whipping up some delicious recipes from a cookbook perfect for just-married couples!

Brownie points if you put in post-it notes commenting on the ones you tried and liked the best :-)


5. Roomba Vacuum Cleaner

I'm not going to lie...I hate cleaning. Take the stress of cleaning out of the couple’s life by giving them a Roomba vacuum that will get the job done without the work! 

Side note: less cleaning time = more manicure time! The bride owes you at least one mani if you get her this!!! (okay kidding)


6.  Suitcase Set of Two

A set of luggage is a perfect gift for the couple with wanderlust. Plus, they'll think of you every time they're packing up! For an added touch, get some custom luggage tags with their names. Cute!!!



 7. Fresh Flower Delivery Subscription

Okay. Y'all know me...

NOTHING makes my home feel more entertaining-ready and polished like fresh flowers. There are several flower delivery subscriptions that make it super easy to customize your subscription with frequency of delivery, size, and style.

And even if your friends aren't big on entertaining, who DOESN'T love fresh flowers????



8. Gift Card for Somewhere the Couple Will Visit During the Honeymoon

If you know the couple well and want to treat them while they are away, then give them a gift they can enjoy on the honeymoon, like a couple’s massage, dinner at a nearby restaurant, or preplanned excursion.

You get to dream about traveling doing research on what to get them too! I love planning itineraries and playing through new possible adventures in my head. This is WAY more fun than it should be!


9. Wine Club Membership

Girl. This one is an easy YESSSSSSS!

If wine is more exciting to the couple than coffee, then get the couple a wine of the month subscription! It's a perfect gift for those who aren't versed in wine but want to be introduced to some fail-proof, go-to bottles.


10. AirBnB Gift Card

Give the gift of adventure with a gift card—the couple can pick their own adventure, whether it's a nearby cabin or a loft in the heart of a big city.





These are some of my favorites! What are your favorite gifts to give?
