Wedding Gift Ideas for Celebrating Near or Far

Invited to a micro or virtual wedding? Surprise the happy couple with a meaningful wedding gift they’ll cherish as they begin their new life together. If you’re planning a wedding, surprise your bridesmaids and groomsmen with gifts to show just how much you treasure their involvement in your big day. Whether you’re getting married, or going to a wedding, here are wedding gift ideas for all occasions.

Wedding Gift Ideas

A cheque-filled card is always appreciated, but often, so are gifts for a couple’s home. To ensure you’re gifting something they’ll truly love, check their Indigo wedding registry. For can’t-fail wedding gift ideas, think big-ticket items that the couple might not buy on their own—like a beautiful set of non-stick Caraway cookware, a Le Creuset whistling kettle and matching mugs, or a vintage-inspired Smeg small appliance. If you’re buying something for their kitchen, pair it with a cookbook so the newlyweds are inspired to make memorable meals together.

Bridesmaid Gift Ideas

The bridesmaids spend a lot of time planning before the big day, and often contribute to the bridal shower and bachelorette party. Thank them for their hard work and support with a token of gratitude. Put together a relaxation bundle with a scented candle and self-care products. For a bridesmaids’ gift they can use on the big day, wrap up a water bottle in one of your wedding colours (hydration is key at a wedding). Are you and your bridesmaids booklovers? If so, choose a unique book for each one of your bridesmaids and your maid of honour and write a note on the inside cover expressing your gratitude.

Groomsmen Gift Ideas

Groomsmen also put in a lot of effort pre-wedding—and on the big day. Thank them with a great gift—like bar tools or glasses and a bottle of their favourite spirit. For R&R, share one of your favourite books with your groomsmen, and gift it alongside cozy reading socks. Perfect for post-wedding recovery.

Bridal Shower Gift Ideas

Even if you’re invited to a virtual bridal shower, you still need to send a gift. Homeware is always appreciated, especially if the newlyweds are moving. Take inspiration from the day spa, and give a bridal shower gift that’ll truly pamper the bride-to-be—think a robe and self-care goodies or an ultrasonic essential oil diffuser to help the bride wind down at the end of a long day of planning. No matter what you choose, it’s all about showing the bride some love!

Don’t Forget the Wedding Card

Never underestimate the value of a handwritten wedding card. Choose a greeting card that matches the couple’s personality. And, if you’re gifting a cheque or cash, be sure to tuck it safely inside the card.

Wedding Planning and Wedding Decor Ideas

Get excited to dive into wedding planning by gifting yourself a must-read book on weddings—like The New Wedding Book by two Canadian authors. Stay organized throughout the planning process with a wedding planning notebook. If you’re hosting a micro-wedding, you might be more inclined to create your own wedding decor. And if you’re not the D.I.Y. type, you can find beautiful guest books and money boxes set and ready to go. Consider them a wedding gift to yourself.
