FAQs about wedding gifts
If you've got a question about wedding gifts, read on. We've answered your top questions below.
What is the best gift to give on a wedding day?
If the newlyweds have set up a wedding registry, it's always wise to choose something from there first. That way, you can guarantee that the couple wants the present and that no one else has already purchased it.
Alternatively, a hamper or gift box is a fantastic gift. Our #1 recommendation is the Indulgent Home Essentials With Moët Hamper. This hamper includes a bottle of Moët & Chandon Brut Imperial NV Champagne, plus some gorgeous homewares and two Palermo Stemless Champagne Glasses.
What to get a married couple as a wedding gift?
If you're searching for "wedding gifts near me", let us stop you right there. We've got many incredible gifts that will help the newly married-couple spend lots of quality time together.
Here are five gift ideas we love:
- Name a Star Gift Set – The best way to create memories
- Making Memories Date Night Inspiration Box – The best way to keep the romance alive

- Our How It Works: The Husband Ladybird Book and How It Works: The Wife Ladybird Book – The best gag gifts
- You Complete Me Mini Puzzle – The best gift for those on a budget
What are some appropriate wedding gifts?
The best type of present for a new couple on their wedding day depends on their circumstances.
If they haven't lived together before, they'll appreciate kitchen accessories and homewares. If they've lived together for years or have children together, they'll appreciate experiences and fun gifts more.
If you aren't close with the couple, the best gift is a food-based hamper or gift box. That way, you can treat them to something special without running the risk of getting them something they won't use. Our Chandon With Australian Sweets and Nuts Hamper is always a safe choice – it comes with candied nuts and a bottle of Chandon Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir NV.
How much money would you give for a wedding gift?
It's customary to give couples $75 to $250 for their wedding, depending on how close you are with them. You can either give them money directly, contribute to the honeymoon fund, or buy them a gift voucher. Gifts Australia currently offers gift vouchers of $50, $75, and $100 to $500.
If the couple has already held an engagement party where they received engagement gifts (including one from you), it's okay to give them a smaller gift on their wedding day.
What is a typical wedding gift?
The best gifts for the happy couple are high-quality items that will last as long as their love (so, hopefully, a lifetime). Classic wedding gifts include wine glasses, kitchen appliances, homewares, serving dishes, gardening tools, and furniture. Money-based gifts like gift vouchers or cash are also popular because they help the couple start their new chapter their way.
What are some good sentimental wedding gifts from parents?
Parents generally give their children two types of gifts on their wedding day:
- A meaningful gift like a pair of cufflinks, a nice watch, a piece of fine jewellery, a tiara, or a tie
- A practical gift like an item of furniture, a gardening tool, money for the honeymoon fund, or a kitchen accessory
The best option for your child depends on their personality, interests, and tastes.
If you're looking for a way to make your child's special day even more magical, the Our Wedding Signature Frame is also a great engagement gift. The couple's friends, family members, and acquaintances can leave a message on the frame, and the couple can add a wedding picture to it. Just make sure to give the couple this gift before the big day so they can set it out at the reception.
What are some good personalised wedding gift ideas?
Personalised wedding gifts are great because they're one-of-a-kind and sentimental. Gifts Australia offers many great personalised and unique wedding gifts, and we recommend these gifts for weddings in particular:
- Personalised Blush Leather Pouch – You can add a name or wedding date
- Personalised Wedding Cufflinks – You can include three lines of text (including numbers)
- Personalised Brown Leather Wallet and Keyring Set – You can add a name and/or wedding date
- Men's Leather Overnight Bad With Personalised Monogram – You can add a name and/or wedding date
In a similar vein, the I Wrote A Book About Us book is also a great gift for a wife or husband to their spouse. You can fill it out and create a truly sentimental gift.
How long does it take for your wedding gifts to arrive?
If you select "standard shipping" (which is free on orders over $99), it should take less than four days for your gifts to arrive. Shipping to metro areas is much faster than shipping to regional and rural areas.
If you need your gift quickly, we offer express delivery. Express delivery takes 1-4 days, and we offer same-day delivery and next-day delivery to the Sydney metro area.
