No Need to Wrap These Unique Wedding Gift Ideas

If wedding season is around the corner and you’re stumped as to what to get the bride and groom, we have a list of unique gift experiences they’ll love. Whether you can’t find something that fits your budget on the wedding registry or you are looking to go off-book and get them something truly original, we have wedding gift ideas for you. 

If you’re looking for the perfect gift experience that won’t break the bank but will excite the bride and groom, try one of these creative classes and workshops. In these interactive workshops, you can learn anything from crafting to cooking. These hands-on experiences are taught by professionals in their craft and are catered to beginners, so you don’t need to worry over whether or not you’re throwing something intimidating in their way. 

You might be surprised, but it’s just as easy to buy an exciting gift experience for the special couple as it is to buy measuring spoons or a coffee maker off of their registry. These classes also make for thoughtful gift ideas as it’s likely something they wouldn’t have asked for or expected. Instead of homeware, we prefer engaging workshops as our go-to gift ideas for couples. 

To celebrate their matrimony, give them something special they can explore together. You’ll be encouraging quality time for the newlyweds that will help them adjust to the new chapter in their lives. A shared experience and a creative outlet will help nourish their bond. Can you think of anything more special?

Create meaningful handmade pottery

While the newlywed's cabinets will soon be stocked with brand new appliances and homeware, you can gift them something a little more personal than a department store item to add to their home. In a pottery class, they can make useful handmade items to add to their home decor or dishware. These long-lasting handmade goods will serve as a forever reminder of the start of their marriage. Pottery classes will allow the couple to build something unique together as they build upon their marriage. 

Exploring your own creativity is essential for your personal mental wellbeing. Pottery can be a great creative outlet for the couple to get to know themselves and each other. Maybe they’ll even add a trip to their local pottery studios as a regular date night. 

Never be bored again with DIY projects

It can be a challenge to come up with productive ways to spend downtime or creative date ideas. Make it easy for the bride and groom to explore their options, by gifting them a craft workshop. Instead of spending every evening unwinding with some TV, they can add a hobby to the mix. When you explore a new craft with your significant other, it will help you bond over a shared experience and spice up your routine, while also allowing you to relax and destress. In addition, adding DIY skills to your toolbelt will make it easier to think of creative ways for home improvement. 

Curious about anything in particular? From woodworking to sewing there are lots of crafts they can try. Give them an introductory course in metalworking or invite them to spend a chill evening at home with a DIY terrarium. No matter how far they decide to take their crafting journey, they’ll have some lovely memories to look back on.

Spice up date night with cooking classes

Instead of experiencing the local restaurants from a dining table, treat them to a behind-the-scenes look. In these hands-on cooking classes, they will work with a chef to create delicious meals. In addition, this is a great opportunity to learn new recipes they can recreate in their home kitchen and use in their weekly routine or for their next dinner party with friends. 

Refining your cooking skills is always a practical use of time because there is always more to learn! In addition, the couple will get to sit down and enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal together. Choose their favorite cuisine and surprise them with an unforgettable night cooking their favorite meals. From Thai cooking to pizza making, there are so many exciting cooking classes to try! 

Learn a hobby they can do at home together with herb gardening 

You don’t need to have a green thumb to grow an herb garden. This is an easy hobby that can be practiced at home, making it an ideal gift experience for a new married couple. By giving them an herb gardening class, they can explore something together and practice taking care of something before any bigger commitments like pets, kids, or more plants. 

Herb gardens are great for indoor and outdoor gardens. So even if you live in a small apartment with only a window sill to spare, you can still grow fresh herbs at home! Choose their favorite herbs, and they’ll have fresh herbs to add to every homecooked meal or cocktail at home. Their love will only grow with this new hobby. Looking for more fresh unique gift experiences? Take a look at these fun options!

Encourage relaxation with painting classes

Marriage can be a big adjustment, even if the couple has been together for a long time. On top of their regular social life and work schedule, the change and new routines can add some stress. Encourage the newlyweds to spend some quality time together to relax. Painting can be a very soothing art, and you don’t need to be good at it to reap the benefits. You can even treat them to a Paint and Sip class and relax with a glass of wine and some paint strokes. 

They’ll be led by a professional painter who will guide them step by step through their works of art. From fluid art classes to still life painting, you can choose whatever type of painting fits their personality. If you have an adventurous couple, maybe they’d like to try encaustic painting and add a little fire to the mix. Or maybe an introverted couple would like a virtual painting class they could enjoy from the comfort of their own home. With a long list of creative classes, there is a painting class that will delight every type of couple.
