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 out of left field as they start their new life together.

Updated

These days, it’s becoming more and more common 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. After all, while the bride and groom might not remember cash gifts in ten years, they’ll definitely remember a unique and quirky gift.

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 the newlyweds 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. Make sure to consider the couple’s personal style so your gift doesn’t end up gathering dust in a closet somewhere.
