The act of gift-giving can be risky, and it can be especially risky when you’re giving gifts to newlyweds. Couples will usually set up an online registry and give guests a nudge in the right direction of where and what to buy. But let’s face it — everyone and their mother will use said registry and how many Home Depot and Bed Bath & Beyond gift cards does one couple need? If you’d rather take a step outside of the box and wow you newlywed friends with something a bit more unexpected, we have a few ideas that will ensure you’ll win the gift-giving game.
Treat them to a subscription box service.
There are so many (like, soooo many) great subscription boxes currently on the market that it’ll be a breeze finding one that fits your friends’ personalities. If the two lead busy lifestyles or perhaps are still settling down into a new space together, think about gifting them a meal prep subscription box like Hello Fresh or Plated.
Both of these boxes arrive weekly and are packed with ingredients to make two to four meals per week. This is great way to get the couple cooking and eating together during the first few weeks of married life.
Or check out more novelty food subscription boxes like Lush Bites, the monthly gluten-free cookie box, or Coffee Crate, the expert-curated small batch coffee box. (And, of course, there’s are several boxes dedicated to those who prefer to indulge in alcoholic libations — for the beer and wine lovers out there, we love The Best Beer of the Month Club and Winc.)
But the subscription box buck doesn’t stop there. The are crates for vinyl-lovers, boxes for those who love a good strategy game, and even a monthly box stuffed with artisan home decor pieces which might be the perfect gift for a couple who recently moved in together.
Get creative and get searching for the perf subscription box.
Let them wander with an Airbnb gift card.
This is the ultimate gift for the couple who loves to get it away from it all. Whether you gift them a one-night stay or if you’re generous enough to gift them an entire weekend getaway, the couple in question will be super appreciative and grateful that you understand their love for travel. Plus, Airbnb gift cards are completely virtual so you don’t have to worry about leaving your gift in your other coat pocket.
Give them the perfect date night with an OpenTable gift card.
The online restaurant reservation service OpenTable has connections with over 3,500 restaurants across the country and the site’s gift card is valid at all of them. Whether you know the newlywed’s favorite spot or want to leave the choice up to them, you can gift them a dinner date on you.
Send them on a second honeymoon.
Did you know airlines have gift cards? We certainly didn’t but wow, we wish we did. Similar to the Airbnb gift card idea, you can gift your friends an opportunity to travel domestically or abroad with a gift card from a major airline like Delta, American Airlines, or British Airways. Most of these companies will let you gift up to $1,000. But any sum you gift can be put toward a vacation of a lifetime.
And okay, fine. A Bed Bath & Beyond gift card is also pretty sweet.
They literally have everything you could possibly need in that one store. Even though it might not be the most original gift, anyone would be over the moon about receiving a BB&B gift card.
