As wedding photographers, we have photographed love A LOT, hundreds of weddings in total and we have seen all kinds of wedding gifts given on the wedding day. We polled our audience on Instagram (follow us here if you aren’t already following along) and they have spoken. A blog dedicated to wedding gift ideas that go beyond the typical “watch for him”, “Jewelry for her” gifts which are both great but a bit vanilla and if you’re anything like us you’re more of a banana split kind of person.

Fret not friend, we have you covered. We personally scoured thousands of pages of search results on the internet to find you the best of the best wedding gift ideas to give your significant other on the wedding day. From personalized wedding gifts to unique wedding gifts the gift ideas below are the best wedding day gifts the internet has to offer. Keep scrolling for the goods.

Gift a journal that you begin shortly after getting engaged, you could just talk about amazing days you’ve had, how much you care for your honey, how they make you feel, a moment in the whole wedding planning process that you two really felt proud of each other, a time when you really needed them and they helped you get through something difficult. Make it so that after you gift it, it isn’t full and the both of you can add to it. It’s the gift that keeps on giving because someday it’s something your future children could cherish it as a story of your love

Twelve months of dates for your first year of marriage! You could include it with a little note about how you promise to never stop keeping things exciting so here I have 12 months of dates planned for our first year of marriage. You can put them on paper and draw from a hat, on popsicle sticks in a mason jar or just have them preplanned without him drawing them himself.
