Wedding Gift Ideas

Wondering what to do about that elusive gift for an upcoming wedding?  We talked with the amazing team over at Zola Registry for some great tips to help you this wedding season….


Sadly Summer will be coming to an end, but that means tons of fall weddings! We love the warm color schemes, the fall foliage, and the autumnal decor at fall weddings and of course, picking the perfect outfit and gifts for the occasion.

Here are some of our favorite gift ideas for a fall wedding, as well as some helpful gift giving tips!

Buy from the couple’s wedding registry

The couple put a lot of work in to creating their registry so it’s best to choose a gift from there. However, there are always plenty of ways to make it personal! You can get a gift monogramed with the couple’s initials, or pick an additional item to go along with the gift on their registry.

Don’t forget about cash funds and experiences too!

As we begin to stray away from traditional wedding registries, intangible gifts such as cash and honeymoon funds and buying experiences as gifts are becoming the norm. Maybe your fall-loving friends and family would like a rustic getaway, or even saving towards a home renovation.

Pick a gift theme

If you decide to go the personalization route, keep a consistent theme and group similar items together. If the couple registered for a new dinnerware set or kitchen utensils, maybe add in a cookbook with some of your favorite recipes! Or if you know they’re going on a trip, you can contribute by getting them some new luggage or something they can use while on vacation.
