When we talked about wedding gift ideas from a to z, we showed you how smitten we were with non registry wedding gifts. I love the wedding registry just like the next girl (BB&B was my registry store of choice), but there are some gifts you simply can’t find in big box chains… namely, handmade! Emmaline Bride is the handmade wedding blog and we strive to promote the best in handmade wedding gifts, decor, attire, and more (see The Marketplace). Today we’re sharing a handful of our favorite non registry wedding gifts to inspire you, including an art print that is being given away to one lucky reader. How’s that for an awesome Monday?
Top 10 Non Registry Wedding Gifts
1. Custom Couple Cake Topper
A cake topper that looks like the happy couple! It makes a great decorative piece afterward, too.
2. Custom Couple Paper Art
I just added this to my own personal wish list. How cute are these paper cut-outs?
3. Personalized Wedding Song Art
Turn the couple’s favorite song or first dance song into a work of art.
4. Wedding Server Set
This vintage server set can be used at the wedding – and beyond.
5. State Themed Cutting Board
We picked Michigan for this example (obviously, we’re smitten with the mitten) but every state is available for this cool cutting board gift.
6. Personalized Art Print
One of my favorite non registry wedding gifts is a personalized art print. Art is the perfect addition to your new nest.
This one is being given away! See the giveaway at the bottom of this post.
7. Personalized Wedding Quilt
These personalized wedding quilts are a neat idea. Guests can sign the quilt squares as a makeshift guest book (if the couple wishes).
8. Tea Towels
Cute tea towels are the finishing touch to a kitchen themed gift. For example, there’s a set featuring “You wash, I’ll dry”…
…”you cook, I’ll clean…” (this one is ideal for me — I hate cooking, LOVE to clean; hubby loves to cook, thank goodness!)
And, of course a simple “Mr. and Mrs” set…
9. Personalized Wine Rack
A sturdy, totally-handcrafted wine rack is an awesome gift idea for the newlyweds.
10. ‘Firsts’ Champagne / Wine Gifts
I like these champagne and wine gifts which are opened at specific times, like their first anniversary or first big purchase. Fun idea!
