Being the hopeless romantic I am, I love finding a wedding gift for the new couple that is special and meaningful.
Not that there’s anything wrong with picking something out from their registry….it’s just that sometimes I want to give something more than a basic set of bath towels, if you know what I mean?
Something beautiful. Something thoughtful. Something inspirational.
But those kinds of gifts are harder to find in my experience. So with that in mind, I’ve done some intentional research to come up with these 15 gifts that fall into those categories. And while they are not all distinctly Christian, many of them offer a blessing or prayer or some other way of encouraging the wedding couple in their faith.
I hope you find something that inspires you here!

As I happen to be a “blanket girl” myself, I loved this idea. It’s soft, warm, AND beautiful! Plus, what a perfect reminder of the good plans God has for the new couple. Available—>HERE
Here’s a classy, symbolic gift to remind the newlyweds to have Christ always at the center of their marriage. The two entwined hearts with the cross in the middle is inspired by the poem, “Marriage Takes Three.” Available—>HERE
Easy reading but wonderful words for any. It’s good to review at least once a year. A great wedding gift!
My husband and I had no idea when we first wrote the books that they’d become such best-sellers!

Personalized Wedding Gift Ideas and More
I thought this was such a fantastic idea! Around here, we often use our cutting board as a “serving tray” — how much better to personalize it with the couples’ name? Yes! Available—>HERE
Romantic, cute, and a terrific way to show off your wedding photo. Way more than your average picture frame, that’s for sure! Available—->HERE
I have a “Wifey” cup that I enjoy, but this idea is even better! A “his and hers” option with the wedding date written in as well. Pretty sweet! Available—>HERE
Here’s another way to encourage the new couple! By surrounding their wedding photo with a prayer and Bible verse. (Can you tell I’m really into unique picture frames?) Available—>HERE
We received bookends as a wedding gift, but ours were elephants (seriously). Not saying they weren’t interesting…but I would have preferred these prayer ones! 🙂 Available—>HERE
A “perfect” marriage isn’t as impossible as some people think. A charming reminder to never give up on each other. Available—>HERE
Our entire family has been really into charcuterie boards this past year, so I was thrilled when I came across this fantastic gift idea. It’s both “different” (going to stand out from the others!) and delicious! It also comes beautifully bundled in a gift box – no need for wrapping – and includes a Mr. & Mrs. card, plus a Boards Guide to give some terrific ideas on how to enjoy their next date night! Available—>HERE
“Count your blessings” and “God is always by your side,” and other inspirational quotes make up this well-made stoneware cross. A very creative piece! Available—>HERE
This poignant figurine is a touching reminder of the marriage promise for years to come. (It also received an unusual number of rave, five-star reviews, by the way). It makes a very special cake topper too! Available—>HERE
I’ll confess: I included this gift here because we were given one like it for our wedding and we LOVED it. It inspired many memorable adventures together! Available—>HERE
This has to be probably one of the most romantic verses in the Bible! So very elegant too. Available—>HERE
Bonus Wedding Gift
And can I add one more “bonus” gift for the new couple? If you could pray for them and their new life together. Certainly, pray for them on their wedding day, but also consider praying for them as you think of them in the years following. That would be a meaningful blessing you can’t beat!
