Whether you have a season full of weddings coming up or just one, choosing a gift can take some time. Are you going to go the traditional cash route? Buy something from the registry? Or gift them something totally different altogether?
While there is no shortage of options, it can be fun to think outside the box and get the happy couple something meaningful and unique. If that’s what you’re going for, here are 5 special wedding gifts you can find online.

A Piece of Art
Art has so many amazing benefits. First, it can evoke emotion and memory, and be a really special keepsake. Second, it can travel with the couple, no matter where they move or how many times. And third, most couples won’t think to buy it for themselves.
Given taste in art is personal and differs from person to person, this is a gift you may want to let the couple choose. You can either buy them a gift card to an online store or gallery, or buy them a piece that comes with a solid return and exchange policy.

A Special Experience
Experiential gifts are pretty special, and they’re the type of thing couples may not think to spend money on. That’s because they can feel frivolous or unnecessary, despite their impact.
Some experience gifts to consider are:
Sports game tickets
Concert or symphony tickers
Play, theatre, or musical tickets
A gift card to a fancy restaurant or hotel chain
Give some thought to what the couple would like, any shared interests, and what types of hobbies they have. This can provide useful guidance in coming up with a great gift experience.
Most of these gifts can be bought online.

Something to Take Their Hobby to the Next Level
If you know the couples’ hobbies or interests, choose a gift that will let them explore them further.
Here are some ideas:
Nice camera or personalized luggage set for frequent travellers
Kayak or canoe for cottagers
Cooking lessons for home chefs
These gifts will help them create lasting memories, pursue a passion, and grow together.
