What To Gift Newlyweds

Although weddings happen all year round, the upcoming warmer months are the most popular for people looking to tie the knot. More weddings means more wedding gifts to buy, which can often be quite an expensive ordeal, especially if you’re buying for close friends or family couples. However, with our list of wedding gift hamper ideas, we’re here to show you that buying gifts for newlyweds doesn’t need to break the bank!

Wedding hosts often create a registry of items they might like to receive, but you shouldn’t feel trapped by the list; you can always surprise them with something that isn’t on the registry. Wedding hampers and gift baskets are brilliant and thoughtful gifts for newlyweds. Not only are they often always unique, as the contents are customisable, but, depending on the size of the hamper, they can last for a really long time.

We’ll explore all our favourite wedding hamper ideas, as well as what to include if you decide to make your own wedding gift basket!

Celebratory Drinks Hampers

An event as significant as a wedding calls for champagne! Champagne has long been the drink of celebrations, and prosecco is also just as delicious and luxurious if you’re looking to spend a little less or accompany the bottle with other gifts. We believe bubbles, champagne, prosecco and sparkling wines, presented beautifully in their own gift box, make some of the most refined and luxurious wedding gifts available. Take our Champagne gift box with engraved personalised bottle for example. Not only will the newlyweds enjoy a delicious bottle of Paul Langier Brut champagne, but they’ll also get to enjoy your commemorative message of love engraved into the front of the bottle; this will be one they’ll want to save for a special occasion. If you’re looking to add a little something extra to your champagne gift, our Wine & Chocolates gift basket with champagne is the perfect way to do so. Complete with the delectable Lindt Swiss luxury chocolate selection, these two dynamos of flavour work together in perfect harmony. This gift basket is a beautiful wedding hamper idea for gifting chocolate lovers in a refined and romantic way.

The bride and groom will likely be up to their ears in bubbles, so you can always try something a little different by gifting spirits. Gin is a popular and sophisticated spirit, making it perfect for gifting newlyweds. Our Classic Gin & Tonic Lover’s hamper showcases the best of both gin and tonic in an exquisite wedding gift hamper. Alongside a candle from Pintail Candle, SugarSin gin fizz gummies, Choc Affair chocolate bar, Lindt chocolate truffles, Cotswold Gourmet slab cake, Four Anjels biscuits, and Joe and Sephs G&T popcorn, you’ll find firm favourite Gordon’s London Dry Gin and Fever-Tree Premium Indian Tonic. A delicious combination of gin and tonic flavourings, this is a brilliant ad original wedding gift basket idea.

Celebratory Food Hampers

Food gifts are perfect for presenting to newlyweds on their special day. They’ll be able to enjoy a food gift hamper for days or even weeks after the wedding, and even share it with guests depending on the size of the hamper. Our Congratulations Cheese & Wine Favourites hamper is a decadent wedding hamper idea. The main event is the bottle of Casillero del Diablo Cabernet Sauvignon, but it is accompanied by the delicious caramelised onion cheddar from Wainwright’s Choice, Snowdonia extra mature cheddar, Claire’s Handmade red onion marmalade, Stockan’s oatcakes and a fabulous “Congratulations” foil balloon. Presented in a wooden gift box, they will find everything they need to kick back and relax with some delicious nibbles after the festivities.

If the happy couple are more inclined to sweeter treats, an afternoon tea hamper is a brilliant choice. Satisfy their sweet tooth with the Afternoon Tea & Scones gift set with muffins, a lovely selection of baked goods, drinks and more all served on a bamboo tray. They’ll enjoy Cuoco caramel thins, Mrs Bridges strawberry preserve, The Cotswold Gourment slab cake, Rodda’s clotted cream, Copperpot butter fudge, four sultana scones and Lizzie’s muffins in raspberry, blueberry and chocolate. Naturally, there’s also tea from New English Teas and coffee from Edinburgh. You’ll be giving the gift of indulgence with this set.

Other Wedding Hamper Treats

Aside from the popular and delicious food and drink wedding gift basket ideas we’ve already mentioned, there are also a few other great ideas we have for gifting newlyweds.

Personalising your wedding gift is a brilliant way to commemorate the day and offer a message of love and good luck for their future! It’s also a lovely way to go the extra mile for close friends and family. Our Congratulations Personalised Cheese Board Selection gift set, for example, features all the best elements of a cheeseboard hamper but is complete with a wooden cheese board serving set that can be personalised to your liking. They’ll be able to keep and enjoy this set for years into their marriage, remembering the day each time they use it. We’ve got a wide selection of other personalised wedding hamper ideas and gift baskets for you to choose from if the newlyweds aren’t cheese lovers.

If you’ve already got an idea of what you’d like to gift, we offer the option for you to get creative and create your own. Choose from different boxes and baskets, drinks, foods, treatments and more, including all of the happy couple’s favourite things. We recommend including a bottle of bubbly and a well-paired snack, such as Lindt chocolates or cheese and crackers. Creating your own hamper is a fabulous way of showing how much you know about the recipients, as well as gifting them with something you know they’ll love.
