It is often quite normal for a couple getting married to create their own “wish list” of gifts that they would like to receive. However, as a wedding guest, you are certainly not bound to that list and you may want to get a little more inventive with your gift. With today’s advances in technology, gift giving is not what it used to be. There are plenty of items that you can have personalised using 3D engraving to create a unique and lasting token of your love or friendship. Here are just a few ideas to start you off.
A Stunning Clock
Anything for the house is usually a safe bet when gift giving, but you do not always know the couple’s décor or tastes. If you opt for a crystal clock, you can be assured it will sit comfortably alongside any décor. For a wedding, a crystal clock is an excellent choice as it is formal enough to be considered an appropriate gift, but you can also have it personalised with a 3D engraving of the couple’s names or family crest, if they have one. This is a piece that can, in time, become an heirloom and increase in value over the ensuing years.
Photo Album or Frame
Memories are made at weddings and what better way to preserve them than to give the gift of a silver frame or personalised photo album? Give an I.O.U. note and then, after the wedding, present the happy couple with a ready-made album of candid shots from the night, or a single photo in a frame. 3D engraving experts can etch the name, date and any other relevant information on these pieces, creating a truly personalised and unique gift to treasure.
Personalised Wine Glasses
This is one you can easily commission ahead of time. While wine glasses are not necessarily the most original wedding gift, how about a set inscribed with the couple’s names, or even a photographic likeness of them? It is up to the personality of the particular recipients, but you could even have a favourite love poem inscribed on each glass with 3D engraving. This is a wonderful and long lasting gift and a thoughtful reminder of their important day.
There is a huge range of wedding themed paperweights available to purchase, but how much more special would it be if you had one personalised? Why not choose a love-themed snow globe and have it inscribed with the happy couple’s names and date of the wedding? There is almost no limit to the way you can turn a seemingly ordinary glass or crystal paperweight into something truly unique and memorable by using 3D engraving.
A vase is a standard fall back gift if you are stuck for ideas. But do not feel like you are copping out! Have one etched with the couple’s image from a photograph and you can guarantee it will take pride of place in their new home. If the idea of a photographic image seems too much, you can have the vase inscribed with a love poem or simply their names and the date of their nuptials.
