Shopping for presents isn’t just about what’s trending. It’s more about the people you’re buying the gifts for, their needs, preferences, as well as their style. If you’re about to get a gift for a gay couple, all the more reason to make sure your present is purposeful, functional, as well as beautiful.
Now, if your gay couple has just celebrated their union and you’d like to commemorate the occasion with them, your wedding gift should also go beyond function and let them know just how much happiness you want them to experience in their life together.
Here are a few noteworthy options you can consider, and make sure to shop around before you land on the final choice!
A wedding album with a personal touch
They already have the photos in the digital format, but there’s nothing quite like going back to your wedding photos, carefully selected and printed to be preserved in an album. So, you can create a custom, hand-made photo album that will portray their life story in an authentic manner.
Ideally, you can add a personal note to share your wishes for them, and also attach a large envelope that will let them collect little snippets such as polaroid photos and concert tickets, to turn their album into a memory-packed treasure trove. The more imagination you pour into its design, the more unique it will be to the couple!
A his-and-his underwear set
Personalized, celebrating their gay union, and stylish as all hell, an underwear set can be a perfect, sizzling gift for your friends, if you’re indeed close enough to give them such a present. If underwear would be too intimate for your and their liking, you can go for bathrobes that carry their names – a fluffy, purposeful gift that never goes out of style.
If you are close enough, then underwear can be a perfect reminder to keep their spark alive and flourishing, and the ideal spicy gift to commemorate the start of their marriage.
Getting cozy with rugs and pillows
Interior design is one of the main conflict points for many newlyweds when they move in right after tying the knot. You can actually simplify this long-lasting process by contributing with a carefully chosen piece or two that perfectly reflect their style and needs.
You can give them cozy and stylish rugs that will elevate the look and feel of their home, and that will help them set the tone of each room in their place. Rugs are perfect for adding warmth to a living room and for cozying up the bedroom, but outdoor rugs can also be a great addition for your freshly married couple. Throw in some pillows, and you’ll resolve many of their design quarrels before they even arise.
Artwork for their shared home
A living space becomes a home when a couple leaves their unique mark – and you can help them achieve that by purchasing artwork from a local gay artist. That way, you support your local gay community, and you contribute to your gay couple’s design efforts in one fell swoop.
Look for canvas paintings they can hang anywhere in their home, depicting either a shared moment or an image they both love, or an abstract notion they’ll appreciate. You can also go for a smaller sculpture or a piece of furniture that serves as art. Either way, your gift will last for ages, and they’ll be able to use it to beautify their home.
Customized gift sets for the happy couple
In addition to racy underwear, you can look for different customized gift sets with a personal touch that will last a long time. For morning coffee rituals or late evening tea sessions, a pair of large mugs with their names can be a great way to celebrate their union. Then again, goofy and love-infused kitchen aprons or pillowcases can also be a good choice.
Even personalized pajamas, shirts, or bowties can make a wonderful option for a wedding gift. You can add a custom message or a quote you know the couple loves.
If your just-married friends already have everything they need, it’s up to you to find something they want, and they’ll enjoy in their new life together. Add these gift ideas to your list, explore your options thoroughly, and of course, be mindful of the couple’s desires – these ideas are intended to impress them and make them happy, so pick something that will be up to par with their expectations.
