Personalised Gifts for Couples:
Adding a Personal Touch to the Big Day

March 2023

Approaching the whimsical season of love comes the not so dreamy task of wedding gifts. Factor in the added pressure of gifting something meaningful and thoughtful and daunting is an understatement. This is where personalised gifts for couples come in. For her, him, their new home or a just-because gesture, personalised gifts are the perfect way to show your love and appreciation for the newlyweds.

Hand-crafted linen photo albums can be curated bespoke for them with beautifully intricate embroidery and an artful fabric depiction of their wedding venue. Or, for the jet-setting couple, a monogrammed weekend bag with their newly formed initials is a great customised gift for her or personalised gift for him. For the bride to be, compliment her perfectly curated wedding look with an ultra-luxe (and sustainable) bespoke lipstick – the ultimate personalised gift for her. Discover these extra special present ideas and so much more in our curated guide of personalised gifts for couples.

A picture is worth a thousand words

PERSONALISED PHOTO ALBUM

In an ideal world their big day is smooth sailing but whether there are hiccups or not (think strained small talk with distant relatives or Uncle Edward inevitably having a few too many) they are going to want to commemorate their special moment. MH Studio’s embroidered photo album is a beautiful gift to cement their wedding, a classic as far as personalised gifts for couples are concerned. It allows the newlywed couple to store and cherish their memories for years to come.

The beautifully crafted linen photo album can be customised from a curated selection of cover colour options. Select from gold, silver or bronze thread to add the couple's names, wedding date, or even a noteworthy message to really make it a one-of-a-kind gift. The hand-embroidered fabric design on the cover can also be customised to be a stunning replication of the couple's wedding destination or venue. Inside are 60 luxuriously thick matte pages ready to be filled with timeless memories. As they flip through the pages of their personalised photo album, they will be reminded of the love and joy they shared on their wedding day. This gift is not only practical but also sentimental and will surely be treasured by the couple as a precious keepsake of their wedding day.

To have and to hold

PERSONALISED THROW

Planning a wedding is almost as unenviable a task as finding the perfect gift. From the politics of seating charts to catering and décor, the chaos involved in preparing for their special occasion can often have couples forget why they are sealing the deal in the first place. A bespoke blanket is a wonderful and practical personalised gift for engagements and weddings alike. The couple can take a quiet moment amidst the endless to-do’s, snuggling up under the blanket while watching their favourite movie, reading a book, or simply relaxing together.

 This plush personalised blanket is hand-crafted in England from ultra soft pure merino wool and finished with carefully hand-stitched embroidery of your choice for lavish comfort and style. Featuring whipped binding detail and an array of personalisation options, curate a personalised gift for couples like no other. Select off-white or camel and personalise with anything from their initials to their honeymoon destination for a unique and meaningful gift that will be treasured for years to come. It's a thoughtful way to show the couple that you care and are thinking of them on their wedding day and a sweet reminder of their big day long after it is over.

Commemorate or unwind

PERSONALISED Decanter

Whether celebrating their ceremony or unwinding after the endless headaches of wedding planning, they are undoubtedly going to need a strong drink (or three). For the couple with a taste for the finer things in life, personalised decanters make a great and inspired gift. Crafted from hand-blown crystal, this elegant bar cart addition features a hand-etched design and walnut topper finished with a shining sterling silver plaque for your choice of personalisation. It is a chic and elevated gift for storing and serving their curated selection of spirits.

For the duo that appreciates a well-crafted picante, a personalised cocktail shaker is a guaranteed gifting win. Carefully made from lead-cut crystal, this refined cocktail shaker has a hand-etched diamond design and a premium walnut topper. It makes for a unique wedding gift or a thoughtful anniversary memento for the mixologist couple in the making. Sure to be appreciated and treasured for years to come, engrave your choice of decanter or cocktail shaker with the date they said, ‘I do,’ to serve as a constant and heartfelt reminder of their love. These bar cart additions make unique personalised gifts for couples – whether for a wedding, anniversary or housewarming.

Honeymoon not included

PERSONALISED Weekend bag

Everyone knows the honeymoon is the best part. Counting down the minutes from the main course to Mallorca, the newlyweds may be having cordial small talk with distant relatives but, mentally, they are already poolside with a Paloma in hand. Personalised gifts for her or personalised gifts for him are a sweet and simple way to set you apart from the registry gifters and ensure the special couple thinks of you all the way from the ceremony to the seaside.

  For the ones always on the go, matching weekend bags with their newly shared initials make great gifts for the start of their joint adventures together. Customise this personalised travel bag with the couple's initials, names or even a significant word to make it a truly one-of-a-kind gift. Whether for quick European getaways or a compact carry-on for dreamy far-away destinations, personalised gifts for couples are always a great choice and this weekend bag is a sure winner. It is a creative way to show the couple that you care and are thinking of them as they embark on their new life together.
