There’s a little-known secret about Etsy: it’s well-known for all things handmade, but they offer an incredible amount of unique wedding gifts, engagement presents, and bridal party gifts for your attendants, too. You just have to know where to look!
Emma here and when I was getting married, I loved shopping on Etsy but I had no idea where to start. There are so many amazing products, handmade by independent artists, and many categories from which to choose. If you’re new to the Etsy storefront, you may feel like there are too many places to start, getting yourself lost in a rabbit hole of adorable finds and then realizing your cart is full and… well, that can happen when you shop there. :) I mean, I should just show you how many products I add to cart on the regular!
But we’re giving you a heads-up on the best wedding gifts Etsy has to offer right now, ahead of the busy season, so you can get your name on some of the most popular waiting lists and get wedding presents in time for delivery. Fear not, many of these top wedding gifts on Etsy are available right now. But there are some that, once the word gets out and they’re Pinned to oblivion, they begin to get waitlisted and it takes a little bit longer since every product is made by hand by a real person.
And that real person? They do a happy dance when you order! And the recipients of your wedding gifts — maybe even you, since we think you should treat yo’ self, you beautiful bride-to-be, you — also do happy dances when they realize the gift they received is completely unique, one-of-a-kind, and not able to be replicated.
Handmade is pretty awesome that way.
What makes a unique wedding gift?
That’s easy! When buying unique wedding gifts Etsy wide or beyond, look for:
– Positive Reviews
When buying gifts online, it’s important to read reviews. They’ll help you decide if the gift is right for you — or your recipient.
– Gift Shipping Times
Keep an eye out for shipping times and any delays to ensure you’ll receive your handmade gift on time. Remember, some handmade gifts take longer to make due to the nature of being, well, handcrafted. Just check the timeline and shipping location if you’re in a hurry. Or send a message to the Etsy maker and see if you can rush your order.
– Wedding Gifts That Are Actually Useful
The best wedding gifts Etsy has to offer? Useful ones! If you find a present the couple can use together, it will translate into wedding gifts that will last a lifetime. And the memories they’ll make? Priceless! Choose thoughtful gifts that aren’t necessarily expensive — price isn’t as important as functionality.
So, without further adieu, here it is: The Most Unique Wedding Gifts Etsy 2021 guide, curated by your handmade lovers at Emmaline Bride, and designed to make shopping for unique wedding gift ideas so much easier.

Starting under twenty dollars, this gorgeous hand-painted ring dish makes one of the most unique wedding gifts — one that I have on my own wish list.
