Holiday Gifts for Newlyweds

The holidays are upon us,

and along with the jingling of bells and toasting of glasses, the layers of clothes and pounds of sweets, there are perhaps some of the fondest memories of our friends and family. Newlyweds who will be celebrating their first Christmas as a family are a unique addition to your list this year, and We Design Weddings has decided to compile a set of gift suggestions that are particularly special for the new Mr. and Mrs.

With all of those new wedding photos, they will surely appreciate a picture frame. Kick it up a notch and make it personal with a handmade wooden frame, personalized with their last name! Spools of Grace makes such a frame, and it will arrive at your door just in time to wrap for Christmas. What an excellent addition to a wall or hearth for the happy couple. You could even take it one step further and get a wedding photo printed and give a wall-ready gift!

You’ve heard it from your grandparents, seen it in movies and read about it in books. Maybe you’ve even experienced it yourself! Carving your initials in a tree is the age-old expression of undying love. We Design Weddings thought it would be fun to make that a giftable sentiment!

Order a log custom-imprinted with a couple’s initials and wedding date, and give them something they will treasure forever. These are woodburned by hand with love. It would make a great addition to any spring wedding décor that might include a vintage theme, so this is a great gift idea for a bridal shower too! Order yours here!

For the couple who likes to cook together, we could not find anything more adorable than one of these Personalized Hardwood Cutting Board with Last Name Corner Design. It is by Bloxstyle and would be a memorable First Christmas Together gift, and one they will use for years to come. They are available in Cherry, Walnut, Maple, Beech or Bamboo wood and come in either 11×16” or 9×12” – so you can make this a very personal gift! As a special bonus, from today through December 15th, Bloxstyle is giving away 5 of these beauties! Visit their website to enter the drawing – Good luck!

All newlyweds appreciate handmade goodies for their new home together! This Wine Barrel Coat Rack with Amish Heart Hooks by Wine Barrel Concepts is gorgeous, unique and heartfelt. This rack would make an especially fun gift for any wine connoisseurs, as each one is crafted from the stave of a reclaimed wine barrel! They do say that home is where you hang your hat, and this would be a lovely place to do so.

This will be the first year to send mail from “the two of us.” What about getting a Self-Inking Return Address Stamp, personalized with the couple’s name, address and even their wedding monogram! They will be sending everything from greeting cards to thank you cards to the bills, and a practical gift like this would save their hands from cramping! You can order one today right here from We Design Weddings!

If you think they would fancy a monogrammed return address stamp, they might also enjoy a set of thank you cards to match! Send your order in today!

You may think it obvious, but we think Stoned n’ Wired has put a new spin on an old idea. Check out these cute First Christmas Together ornaments, hand stamped with the sweet sentiment “Our 1st Christmas as Mr. & Mrs.” Along with a wedding date and the name of the bride and groom. Decorating a Christmas tree together is a special time, and this ornament will continue to remind your newlyweds of that first Christmas every year!

We’ve had so much fun shopping around for these gifts – we hope you are inspired too! Feel free to send any questions or comments our way!
