Choose personalized gifts for your registry to fill your home—and your life—with items that will always remind you of your happy wedding day.
Your wedding is more than just another day. It’s the day you and your spouse will become a new family. Those are some personal memories! So it only makes sense that some of your wedding gifts have a truly personal touch. With personalized wedding gift ideas, you can create your new home and new life together by including items that remind you of your special day every time you see and use them.
Is It Appropriate to Register for Personalized Gifts?
Here at MyRegistry, we think it’s appropriate to register for whatever you want! That said, your family, friends, and other guests will enjoy getting you something that’s 100 percent unique. So go ahead, make it all about you (two) by registering for gifts that literally call your name.
Why Register for Personalized Gifts?
Creating a wedding registry allows you to get exactly what you want. That’s kind of the point! So the same is true of personalized gifts. While gift-givers may like the idea of giving you something personalized, you’ll still want to choose for yourself to avoid receiving things that don’t fit your home, your taste, or your lifestyle—in fact, all the more so, because personalized gifts won’t be returnable (and no re-gifting either!).
Read on for some of our favorite ideas for personalized wedding gifts.
You want to create a space that perfectly suits you two, and personalized home decor is a sure way to do it. This Stoneware Wedding Crock features a classic “marriage tulip” with your name (or names) and your wedding date. With an earthy, handmade look, this crock is perfect for a bouquet from your love or a few flowers from your own garden. To hang in your entryway and officially welcome guests, try this Family Name Sign. It’s made of reclaimed wood for a rustic-chic feel that will work with almost any home’s decor. Looking for something that’s personal and still super functional? A Personalized Doormat will let visitors know they’ve found the right place.
If you like to spend time together in the kitchen, cooking for two or hosting a group, you’ll love these custom gifts. Bringing a classic wedding gift feel, the Laurel Trivet with a simple laurel design surrounding your last initial and name is a gift you’re sure to use for years. If you like to gather around a grill, guests will be entertained (and feel like they’re at an actual steakhouse) when you pull out this Monogrammed Steak Brand & Carving Board. Pair it with a personalized cheese board, like this black slate Harvest Cheese Board that’s pretty enough to hang on the wall and comes complete with a complementary cheese knife.
Setting up a home together practically requires fancy barware. First, there’s the Cocktail Mixer Set. With this one, every piece—shaker, strainer, ice tongs, stirring spoon, double-sided jigger, and wood storage box—can be customized with your initial. If you’re more about spirits than cocktails, you’ll love this Whiskey Decanter and Glasses with a clubby monogram engraved on each piece. And what wedding registry is complete without Champagne Flutes to toast all those special moments to come? (Bonus for coffee drinkers: How adorable are these Personalized Camp Mugs?)
Of course Monogrammed Towels are a wedding registry staple—these come in a huge range of colors to coordinate with any bathroom. And when you’re ready for guests, go ahead, spiff up the powder room with Monogrammed Soaps that say “special guest,” with your name engraved right into them. Overnight guests will appreciate this Monogrammed Tub Mat, a combed Turkish cotton mat that’s absorbent and soft with every step and is available with your three initials.
Personalized gifts aren’t just for the home. There are a variety of options for couples who like to be on the go. This Leather Cord Organizer simplifies your technology and device cables, especially useful for finding the right power cord without digging through a jumbled bag on crowded flights. For international fliers, a monogrammed Leather Passport Cover is a nice touch. And if you’re a constant traveler, this Travel Companion Set with a monogrammed case, neck pillow, eye cover, and travel blanket will keep you comfortable wherever you are.
If one or both of you is a game player, you’ll appreciate these custom wedding gifts. Golfers will love this leather Yardage Book Cover with his/her initials in gold. It’s a standard size to easily pair with a notepad and pencil. If you prefer to spend your leisure time around a table, a personalized Poker Set is a bit of quirky fun, whether you’re hosting or meeting at a friend’s place. Like the idea of something that can entertain both kids and adults at an outdoor gathering? This Cornhole Set offers classic racing stripes in a choice of colors, along with your family name.
