If the idea of getting your newly married mates a set of dinner napkins seems like a total snooze, go rogue from the registry and get the happy couple something unexpected but extra special. From a board game inspired by their favourite show to a custom constellation print for their marital home, these creative wedding gift ideas are a step up from the usual crockery and bath towel fare…


1. Games

You know what they say, ‘the couple that plays together stays together’… (Not sure ‘they’ ever played a heated game of Monopoly with their other half, but hey!) Upgrade the newlyweds’ game night collection with some fresh, fun activities – whether it’s a sleek set of playing cards, a new spin on a classic (Game of Thrones Cluedo, anyone?) or a creative puzzle that they can complete together. They also say ‘team work makes the dream work’!

2. Tech accessories

The perfect combination of super practical and ridiculously cool, the right tech gift will shoot straight to the top of their ‘favourite wedding gifts’ list. We’re thinking gadgets that mix the latest technology with a timeless façade – a sleek smart clock, a custom engraved solid oak charging dock, or a splurge-worthy Bluetooth speaker (you know, so they can replay their first dance song in the highest quality sound).

3. Custom wall art

More long-lasting than a congratulatory message on a card, a piece of personalised wall art is a keepsake that’ll remind them of their big day (and their favourite guest) for years to come. Map out the stars in their wedding night sky with a custom constellation print, combine their initials in a simple, statement design or mark their favourite location with a personalised heart-shaped map.
