Wedding Planning Diary
The Little White Book tops the list, because it’s a top gift. Thoughtful for planning a wedding, and a treasured keepsake in years to come, the Little White Book is a clever gift from a partner, a bridesmaid, a sister or just a really thoughtful friend.
“First Married Christmas” Ornaments
This ticks the boxes for sentimental, sweet and semi-wedding related… a personalised Christmas Ornament for your tree (everyone together… awwwww).
This beautiful xmas ornament is a wooden slice that could double as a gift tag for the newlywed’s Christmas gift! Below, this bauble holds a wedding photo = love! These make great gifts because it’s acknowledging a pretty massive milestone in their lives – why wouldn’t they want to remember it?!
Christmas ideas for the home
For the bride-to-be who is functioning on little-to-no sleep, coffee will be much appreciated… and the above wedding planning mug would be extra special for someone who’s juggling wedding planning with a full workload and little rest. Whilst for a coffee-loving couple, these “hubby” and “wifey” mugs are a sweet idea. Pair them with a new plunger and a speciality roast for that extra touch.
A cutting board personalised with the married name and wedding date can make a great gift for a foodie couple. I can’t decide between this one…
…or this one!
Christmas gifts for the wedding day

If your bride to be is procrastinating on her wedding planning, encourage her to get those important bits and pieces ticked off her wedding to do list, with some wedding planning wine labels!
One of the first things that newlyweds need to run out and grab are photo frames and photo albums – so these personalised photo albums make a great, practical and personal gift at Christmas. The one below would be perfect for an adventurous couple…

This “mrs” necklace (above) is a modern, personal gift.
If the bride you’re buying for is more a cat fan, then this flying cat necklace could be the gift you’ve been looking for:
What about a little engagement ring dish, to keep her sparkles safe whilst washing the dishes or baking?
Reusable shopping bags are going to be a must-have item shortly, so why not get something a little special?
