It could be one of the most important gifts you give in your lifetime! Other than pledging an oath that binds you to your significant other for life of course… But the perfect pre-marriage gift can decipher how well you know the person you are about to marry SO let’s get it right! (not too much pressure hey…) Now, we’re not saying that if you get a gift and it’s not what you expected, that you gotta run 🏃🏾♀️ or that you’re even interested in giving gifts at all, we’re merely here to guide those, as industry professionals, on the wedding gifts that we think make ‘wedding morning gift giving’ sentimental and worthwhile.
So where to start! It’s usually the case of ‘they have everything’ when it comes to getting your significant other a present say for their birthday, Valentine’s Day, or Christmas. But on your wedding day it’s different. It needs to be sentimental, thoughtful, a symbol of your love and companionship and how well you know one another.
Here’s a list of presents for your significant other, that we think will do the job!
Let’s bring it back to basics:
- A Personalised Love Letter 💌 (how sweet)
“In a world filled with material possessions, a heartfelt letter expresses your deepest emotions”, says the wise ChatGpt, and we agree!
Strip it back we say! Weddings are expensive, why bother spending any more money on a wedding gift for your significant other, when you can gift a personalised, heartfelt note which will probably, most definitely hold more sentimental value than something materialistic. You could even print off a couple of early dating photos and scrap book them in to take a trip down memory lane!

Alternatively, you can get on trusty Canva and make your own card! This will save the $$$.
- Engraved Jewellery 💍
Now, whenever you hear jewellery, you instantly think expensive BUT you’d be surprised at how cost effective this can be! Small silver bracelets with an engraving of your initials or wedding date (like pictured below) can be reasonable priced. Most jewellers in the Hunter/Newcastle region will also sell pendants ranging from hearts and plain discs to religious iconography which are all ideal for engraving on. Local engravers usually have machines to do any type of engraving as long as the item of jewellery is big enough, or they may offer to do it by hand. This gift is super personalised and can be surprisingly cheap.

- Personalised watch⌚️
This one can be a little bit more expensive, but it doesn’t lack on sentimental value, or timelessness 😉 Get the back engraved with your anniversary date or initials! The act of gifting a watch on your wedding day has a long-standing tradition in many cultures. It is seen as a gesture of love, respect, and a symbol of a new chapter in life. Further, a watch is not only a beautiful accessory but also a practical and functional item. Your husband can wear it every day, and it will serve as a constant reminder of your special day and the love you share!

Remember, the significance of a gift ultimately lies in the thought, love, and intention behind it. A gift on a wedding day to your partner is indeed special, but it is important to recognise that it is not the be-all and end-all of the occasion. is just one element of the overall celebration. HOWEVER, we loved finding these cute little gifts and of course, if you need us to plan your partners wedding gift (on top of your wedding) we’d be MORE than happy to 😉
