9 unique summer wedding gifts
An innovative photo display
Any special event, but particularly a wedding, is sure to result in a plethora of photographs! So, why not treat them to an eye-catching photo display, and allow them to show off memories of the big day in style?
A functional patio heater
With summer finally upon us, we’re all making the most of our gardens and outside spaces. But what about when autumn and winter roll in? If your bride and groom love spending time in the garden, a patio heater is the perfect gift, allowing them to enjoy a glass of wine outdoors no matter the weather.
His and hers sunglasses
Whether they’re jetting straight off on their honeymoon or are sticking around to enjoy the UK summer, a pair of sunglasses is a fashionable and practical present that they are both sure to love. Opt for two complementary styles for a wedding-appropriate ‘his and hers’ vibe.
Perhaps the special couple are keen cyclers? If so, they’re guaranteed to love these, high-end cycling jerseys perfect for their favourite hobby? A cycling jersey each is ideal for taking their couples bike rides to the next level.
A gift experience
You really can’t put a price on a new experience. If you're struggling with wedding present ideas, a gift experience is the way forward. Adrenaline junkies can explore tandem bungee jumps or zombie experiences, while craftier types can be treated to watercolour or illustration workshops.

A unique clock
If you’re considering a home wedding gift, a clock is the perfect choice. For the modern couple, avoid traditional mantel clocks. Instead, opt for something a little more unique that will add the ideal decorative touch to any room.
While glassware is often seen as a traditional gift, traditional doesn’t have to mean boring! Choose a pair of quirky rocking glasses to add a unique and intriguing edge to their collection.
A camera to document the honeymoon
If the couple are big on travelling, have you considered gifting them high-end tech or accessories? A GoPro camera is the perfect way to document their honeymoon and action-packed future travels, leaving them with happy memories that will last a lifetime. Or, if they already own a GoPro, treat them to a head strap, harness or mount to take their creativity up a notch.
