Cool wedding gift ideas that break all traditions

Weddings call for celebrations of love and togetherness. On their special day, gift the couple with something cool and left-of-centre as they start their new life together.

These days, it seems more commonplace for couples to request monetary gifts or have an extensive registry. While there’s nothing wrong with that, maybe you want to give them something that’ll stand out and really make them smile.

So let’s think outside the box. Check out some cool wedding gift ideas below.

Cute and quirky

If what you’re after is just a small sentiment for them to take home and cherish, then cute and quirky novelties are the way to go. They’ll add some character to the home and, if done right, will remind the couple of you and your friendship.
