Just like with everything else, if you wait until the last minute, you lose out. What happens if you open the bride and groom’s gift registry and find all of the “good” or (let’s face it) affordable gifts are gone? Or maybe you don’t have time to waste and you need a gift right away. Either way, here are some last minute wedding gifts that are sure to please and dazzle!
First Christmas as Mr. & Mrs. Ornament. There’s nothing like a couple’s first Christmas together as a married couple. Help them celebrate this important milestone with a ceramic ornament that’s made especially for them. If you’re able to personalize it with names, even better (though you probably won’t find that as a last minute option), but you’re sure to find one with the appropriate year on it.
Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker. Hopefully, there are lots of breakfasts together in the couple’s future. And instead of running out to the nearest Dunkin, they can use this fun and customizable sandwich maker instead! Easy to use, they can add of their ingredients at once: bread, cheese, meats, etc. and within minutes, they’ll have a tasty, delicious, affordable breakfast, brunch or even dinner.
Gift Card. Everyone loves being able to spend money on what they want. And if you’re running behind or in a pinch for a last minute wedding gift, you won’t find a better one than a gift card. It’s super easy for them to track their balance online, which means it’s ultra-safe and secure. Plus, with thousands of retailers to choose from, you’re sure to get them a gift card that is a perfect fit.
Wine Glasses. An ideal wedding gift because not only can you find them practically everywhere, they will always go to good use! These days, wine glasses are available in all types of colors, materials, and even sizes. Mix them up with a variety or choose a simple, classic look that will endure.
Flameless Candles. There is a certain charm to real candles, but there are also so many obstacles to them. Young children, pets, smoke toxicity, fire codes, etc. are all among the reasons why many people don’t like having them. Flameless candles, on the other hand, offer all of the great benefits of regular candles and none of the bad ones. Plus, many of them come with remotes so they are easily programmable and put onto timers to avoid wasting the batteries.
Bluetooth Speaker. Whether the newlyweds like to entertain or prefer nights home alone, a Bluetooth speaker will help create whatever ambiance and atmosphere they are striving for. Available in all sorts of colors, shapes, and sizes, Bluetooth speakers also often come pair-able with other speakers to create stereo effects.
A Case of Wine. They can celebrate every month’s anniversary with a bottle! Wine is readily available, if you’re not sure what type to get, ask the liquor store owner about reasonably priced, good wines, and make sure to ask for a discount on the case.
Charcuterie Board. No host or hostess wants to be scrambling for dishes and trays to serve their goodies. The Cheese Board Set at ChefSofi Store offers 4 knives, 4 bowls, and an extended rounded serving platter that easily houses cheese, crackers, nuts, jams, butters, fruits and berries. It’s classic, elegant and will be used again and again.
Sherpa Throw. What is one thing you can never have too many of? That’s right, blankets and throws. Whether you have them piled on your bed or over the corner of a chair, throws are an invitation to comfort. If you’re running low on time, opt for a cozy Sherpa throw in a muted, understated color. The newlyweds are sure to put it to good use right away!
Essential Oil Diffuser. Everyone has their own favorite fragrances, and an essential oil diffuser will help make their house into a welcoming home. There are always a variety of relaxing, calming, and invigorating scents to choose from, and some diffusers also double as nightlights and even humidifiers. You can opt for one that is stylish enough to be placed in any room.
Picture Frame. The newlyweds will have plenty of pictures to display and not just from their wedding. Keeping this in mind, you can opt for wooden or even acrylic frames instead of feeling obliged toward crystal and glass. A multi-opening frame lets them display all sorts of memories all at once and is something they could use to fondly remember their honeymoon.
