Wedding season has arrived and you’re probably already making your way to wedding festivities. So we thought, perhaps, you were looking for something a little more special for your favorite couple. In an effort to make your life easier, we’ve gone ahead and rounded up the best personalized wedding items from the best online brands. Good news is, a lot of these gifts can also double as bridal showers gifts, or that something special for your wedding party. So many good options, so little time. Let’s get to it.

Call us traditional, but a gift from the heart goes a long way. The cool thing about gifting the new Mr. & Mrs. something unique is that they’ll have it forever - and they’ll always remember who got it for them. They’ll think of you when they look at it five years down the road, and they’ll feel all heartfelt inside knowing you got them something so memorable and conversation worthy. So, it’s just something to consider. And if you’re going to go rogue off the registry, well, these are the super cool, can’t-go-wrong, trendy gifts worth doing it for. 

Without further adieu, we give you the gifts those lovebirds don’t even know they need. Good luck deciding, GL my friends.
