It's officially wedding season! If you're anything like us, you have your fair share of nuptials to attend this summer. Aside from deciding what to wear, there's also the question of what gift to give—because showing up empty handed is a bigger faux pax than wearing white to a wedding.
We rounded up 10 wedding gift ideas that the bride and groom will actually want to keep and even treasure for years to come. Whether you're attending a friend's wedding or getting hitched yourself, snag one of the gifts below or add them to your own bridal registry!
1) PROMPTLY JOURNALS LOVE STORY JOURNAL
The Love Story Journal is a prompted marriage journal that helps couples easily document all the details of their relationship and how they fell in love, from the first kiss to the last kiss. The journal covers how you met, your dating life, engagement, wedding, and your 1st anniversary through your 70th. Couples will find their connection strengthened as they document their feelings and memories. You will find that this easy gift will be the most meaningful of the whole wedding.
2) TALVI KNIFE BLOCK SET
Grooms will love this 13-piece knife set from Talvi, and brides will love the minimal, modern white-washed knife block. Win, win!
3) COYUCHI ORGANIC TOWELS
Upgrade cotton towels with these ultra-soft, ultra-absorbent organic cotton Turkish bath towels from Coyuchi. Toss in a bath bomb and a pair of sheet masks, and you have the makings of an at-home spa day for the happy couple.
4) PARACHUTE LINEN BEDDING
Why sleep on boring cotton when you can sleep on luxurious linen? We're obsessed with Parachute's linen bedding collection. The linen is ultra-comfy and keeps you cool in the summer and warm in winter. Plus, it creates an instant Instagram-worthy bed.
5) MERCER DINNERWARE
You can't go wrong with classic white dinnerware, but the Mercer Dinnerware collection from Crate & Barrel offers a modern take on the traditional style. Made of natural clay, the clean, simple dishes blend seamlessly with a variety of tablescapes.
6) MENU BOTTLE GRINDER SET
Ditch the boring salt and pepper shakers—this pretty ceramic salt and pepper bottle set by MENU adds a pop of color and style to the kitchen.
7) NOT PERFECT LINEN TABLE LINENS
Just like linen bedding, we love the stylish simplicity of Not Perfect Linen's table linen collection. The linen tablecloths and linens create effortlessly elegant tabletops and are available in a variety of colors. Plus, the linens are easy to wash (good for food spills)!
8) COPPER UTENSILS
Gift the bride and groom these chic copper cooking utensils from Anthropologie—way cuter and cooler than basic plastic.
9) MAPIFUL CUSTOM MAP
What's sweeter than a memory of where the happy couple got engaged, fell in love, or will visit on their honeymoon? We love these custom map posters from Mapiful. Choose a map based on a special location from across the globe, and customize the style, text, font, and display. Perfect for a newlywed nest!
10) STAUB CAST IRON POT
We love Le Creuset as much as the next gal, but Staub is the gold standard when it comes to quality French cookware. Newlyweds will love cooking in the kitchen together with this large Staub cast iron pot from Anthropologie, perfect for soups, stews, and more.
