Gifts for the newlyweds

Marriage is always a time of great joy and festivities for all of the participants. However, the real joy is amongst the brand new bride and groom who are on the verge of starting an all-new and exciting chapter in their lives. This is why it is an ancient and global tradition to give them a few gifts to help them start their new and exhilarating journey. Let us check out some of the best gifts that you can give to newlyweds who are starting life in a new home:

Bed sheet and quilt set

Who doesn’t want to snuggle under nice clean and soft sheets when they get married?  While this may well be a pretty standard gift option, it is extremely useful nonetheless. Furthermore, it is a very safe option since everyone appreciates it, especially newlyweds. Best of all, they are available in a variety of colors and at different prices. You can buy a set as per your budget and preference (don’t forget to buy one with hearts and/or roses).

Coasters and mugs

Colorful coasters are all the rage these days. As a matter of fact, they will liven up the newlyweds’ living room and also make them remember the lovely day they got married. How? By personalization of course. You can personalize coasters with plenty of really nice pictures of their wedding day.

You can throw in a plastic or Zanaflex table mat that will be a collage of their best days together before they got married. The day they met. The day they fell in love, their engagement, and so on and so forth. Finally, you can also get a few personalized ‘him and her’ mugs as well, to complete the picture.

Candles and candlesticks

Cut class or pure candlesticks are amazing gifts for newlyweds, especially when you throw in a few scented candles into the mix. After all, soft scented candlelight sparkling off the crystal candlesticks… What could be more romantic for a new couple?

Decanters and decorative shot glasses?

These things are both useful as well as decorative. Throw in cut glass decanters to go with them and you will have a decoration shelf that would look really nice in the drawing-room. Apart from that, it will also be a great way to break out the champagne and celebrate that first month’s wedding anniversary.

Decorative Artificial Flowers

These would look really cool with painted garden flower pots. They can be strategically placed near the entrances to create that awesome atmosphere. You can also use them to generate a really nice and quiet ambiance that would look as classy as it is elegant. Besides, modern artificial plants and flowers look just like the real thing so it would make the recipients seem like they are more in tune with Mother Nature.

Wall paintings

A really good painting can go a long way in sprucing up the home and changing the whole look of the room. They are excellent gifts full of vibrant colors that make the viewers feel as fun living and as vibrant as the painting itself. Rest assured that the newlyweds would love the paintings you gift them and thank you profusely.

Decorative Lamps

From hand-painted side table reading lamps to saltpeter ones, there is an endless variety out there. Choose soft and romantic shades that the newlywed couple will place next to their beds on the side tables. This way, they will be able to see them first thing in the morning and right before they go to bed.


Bookstands are perfect for the bibliophile couple. You can find intricately carved ones made of teak or oak or you can opt for onyx marble ones. They can also be used as decorative items in their own right.

Gift them travel vouchers

You might also consider giving them travel tickets such as buying them tickets to a wonderful iboga retreat. This way, they will be able to start their new life completely relaxed and full of inner peace. These occasions also offer a good opportunity for the couple to bond while learning new things.

  • Conclusion

Newlyweds deserve the very best in life. You can send them onto their new journey by giving them excellent gifts or travel vouchers to their favorite retreat.
