Why Choose Engraved Wedding Gifts?
Engraved wedding gifts are a wonderful idea for many reasons. As more and more people ditch the idea of what a traditional wedding should be, and opt to add their own unique flair to their special day, a personalised gift can show a reflection of the couple’s personalities. Personalised wedding gifts are more intimate than a regular item that anyone could be, and the engraving makes it a sentimental gift that will be loved and cared for, for years to come.
If you are looking for personalised wedding gifts for your husband-to-be, a romantic gift on the day of, or the day after, your wedding is a great idea to really show him that you care. A personalised pocket watch is a great idea to gift to your groom, and he can wear it at the altar whilst he prepares himself to see you. Giving the gift of a personalised hip flask is also a wonderful idea, and can help ease his nerves on the big day with his favourite tipple.
For the grooms, buying your bride-to-be a gift is a thoughtful idea, too. Whether you already live together or are planning to buy your first home, buying a sterling silver engraved photo frame for your loved one is a great idea, and will be one of the first items in your home bought as a married couple. Another great idea is a personalised hip flask in her favourite colour.
Personalised wedding gifts are also wonderful to add to bags of wedding favours, hand out on the big day to all of your guests, or offer one to your bridal party! Whilst most brides opt to have personalised robes or slippers for their bridal party, an engraved hip flask is a fun alternative that is sure to add a bit of extra special magic to your party. An engraved hip flask can be your drinking companion throughout the night, no matter what hen night fun you have planned, and can keep your crew in stock of their favourite liquor. Unlike personalised robes and slippers, a personalised hip flask can be taken out with you on the evening (our fun miniature hip flask key rings are a great idea for a discreet stash of your favourite tipple) and will be a reminder of the fun leading up to the big day. Our range of personalised wedding hip flasks can be used for years to come, and are far more practical than other bridal party ideas.
The History of Wedding Gifts
Weddings have a long history with gifts, though it wasn’t always the case that guests gave gifts to the happy couple! It’s thought that the notion of a wedding gift comes from the concept of a ‘dowry’, which was a price paid to the family of the groom. Over the years, it has become more and more common for couples to have a gifts registry, to help guide their guests in picking out a gift they’ll truly love. It’s also incredibly common for a person to buy a gift for their partner, to give to them before, or on the morning of, their wedding day. These gifts vary depending upon the couple, but engraved wedding gifts are a highly thoughtful and wonderfully personal gift idea. Though a lot of couples opt to have a gifts registry, it’s not uncommon for guests to skip the registry entirely and give a far more intimate, personal gift such as an engraved necklace or house ware.
The modern concept of wedding gifts can perhaps be traced back to the 1890s, and is a rather recent addition to weddings. With more and more couples beginning to live together before marriage, most people often forego the traditional gifts of linen and kitchenware in favour of more unique gifts. Personalised weddings gifts are incredibly popular with young couples due to their emotional significance, and many brides and grooms often buy one another gifts on their wedding day, as a sign of love and commitment.
