Giving cash for a wedding is fine. It’s easy and convenient but it’s certainly not the most personal or thoughtful option, and it shows. Going above and beyond with an actual gift on someone’s wedding day is an act that won’t go unnoticed. It doesn’t have to be out of the box, expensive, or big – it just needs to show some thought.
If you’re stumped on what to gift someone, personalized gifts are an easy way to show that you put some effort into choosing what to give. The joining of last names is one of the most symbolic parts of a wedding and something that couples get very excited about. Showcase this fun part of the wedding with a gift that features their last name, and perhaps their wedding date too.
Below you’ll find 20 awesome gifts, all personalized to be given to a couple on their wedding day.
1. Personalized Mason Jar Cutting Board
If you are looking for the perfect personalized gift, this cutting board is quality made and has a quick delivery time. You can enhance the gift with some cheese and wine and a set of cheese knives or gift it on its own.

2. Personalized Wedding Champagne Flutes
You might be skeptical about the quality of these glasses given the low price point, but check out the pages of five star reviews from past purchasers and you’ll be reassured that they’re nothing short of amazing. The two glasses are completely personalized with the last name of the bride and groom and their wedding date. The glass is high quality, laser engraved, and sturdy so breakage and wear over time is not a concern. They’re also packaged and shipped with care and can be washed in the dishwasher for easy maintenance.
3. Personalized Wedding Wine Box – Love Reserve
This creative gift is sure to wow and is the perfect choice for wine lovers. The wood box is handcrafted with high quality plywood and can fit bottles measuring 13 x 3.75 inches. It’s then engraved with the couple’s name and the year of their wedding for something that they can display in their home for years to come. The wine is not included but you can purchase a bottle of your liking to include. For an even more generous gift, this personalized wine box includes space for three distinct bottles. Made specifically for a wedding, this option has room for three bottles as well, all marked with a specific purpose – one for a quiet night together, one for a night of celebration, and one to share on their anniversary.
4. Personalized Latitude Longitude Coordinates Sign
The reclaimed wood used to create this gift adds to the special and unique nature of the sign. All the reclaimed wood is inspected, cleaned, and sanded before the customization process begins for a professional and high quality finished product. Not only can it be personalized with the location of your choosing, but you can also customize a personal message on the back of the sign (such as the couple’s names and their wedding date) for a special touch. Love Built Shop is home to many well-decorated signs, but if you’ve got something in mind that you don’t see, they also accept custom orders. Simply message them to learn more.

A couple’s first home together will always hold a special place in their heart. Commemorate that place with a pretty custom map like this one, personalized with their names and their wedding date. The digital print is customized to any location worldwide and comes already framed in a 13”h x13″w x 1.5″d solid wood shadow box frame (in either white or black) with the print measuring 12”x12”. Alternatively, if the couple is getting married somewhere unique, we also love the idea of tailoring this print to their wedding location.

6. Personalized Happily Ever After Lumbar Throw Pillow
Along with marriage often comes decorating a new home together. While the couple may have registered for the standard home items like kitchenware and linens, personalized items typically aren’t included in wedding registries and make for an awesome wedding gift. This throw pillow can be used either on a bed or couch for a personal touch in any couple’s home. We love the mix of fonts and simplistic design, for a look that matches either a more traditional or contemporary style. The font can be printed in several colors if navy isn’t your first choice. The customize now button on the top right corner allows you to see a proof with your color selection and customized text before ordering, which is a comforting feature to make sure you order arrives just right. You can check out other customizable pillows here to find your favorite style.
7. Personalized Mr. & Mrs. Coffee Mugs Wedding
While plain old mugs might already be on a couple’s wedding registry, there’s nothing wrong with throwing a few fun mugs into the mix that they can use to enjoy their morning cup of coffee or tea. The mugs are made of high quality porcelain, making them completely wedding gift appropriate. They’re also dishwasher and microwave safe for easy and convenient care. Since this gift is super affordable, consider purchasing them in conjunction with another unique coffee focused gift like this Nespresso machine or a nice mahogany tea box.

It measures 13.5″ x 10″ and features thick with twine handles with a free engraving. Another great add on would be a cheese book (which is basically like a cookbook but instead of instructing you on how to cook, tells you how to best eat a lot of cheese. Sounds good, right?).

These are some of the most gorgeous passport cases we’ve ever seen, and anyone would be proud to tote one of these around on their upcoming trip.
