It’s summertime, not only does that mean cookouts and lazy beach days, but it also means we are deep in the throes of wedding season gift giving! Sure, it’s tradition to purchase from the couples gift registry, but sometimes it’s more fun to give them truly unique gifts. Off-registry gift giving is typically frowned upon, except when you truly know the couple or when you are gifting gourmet! I promise you, no one will be upset with these delectable wedding gift baskets, gift crates, and more!
Even if you purchase from their registry, there are other opportunities to shower the happy couple with gourmet gifts. We’ve broken a few of our gift ideas down by category to make your job a little easier. If you don’t see something you like, we have many more gift baskets available on our website. Poke around and have fun with your gift selections. You can’t go wrong any of these gourmet choices!
Bachelor Party Gifts
Give him a beer tour with one of our great Beer Gift Baskets! He’ll not only have beers to enjoy but gourmet snacks too! You might even be able to convince him to share one with you the night of the bachelor party! After all, the bachelor party will need sustenance to get through the night! Right? That’s one of the many reasons our team created The Beer Advocate’s Gift Basket. It’s an entire party in a basket! If the celebration is for a smaller gathering of friends, the Around The World Beer Bucket – 12 Beers or Around The World Beer Bucket – 6 Beers are also fantastic bachelor party gift choices.
Bachelorette Party Gifts
Looking for a gift that will whisk the bride or the happy couple away to tranquility? A Premium Spa Gift Basket is a thoughtful gift to send prior to the Bachelorette party. Or send the bride (or groom!) a Premium Spa Wine Gift Crate to share and enjoy on their honeymoon. Whether she chooses to indulge herself before or after the big day, these gifts are full of everything she needs to relax, de-stress, and enjoy a much deserved escape from her every day routine!
Speaking of ways to de-stress, who wouldn’t want to receive an elegant gift basket full of Champagne & Truffles? Choose between three sparkling wines: La Marca Prosecco, Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label or the ultimate in impressive, Dom Perignon. Or, imagine the look on her face when she opens this Ultimate Dom Perignon Gift. There is definitely something for the entire bridal party to enjoy in these gifts!
Engagement Party Gifts
Toast the happy couple with the Classic Champagne Gift Basket. You’ll be setting them up, not only with bubbly, but with some delicious gourmet snacks as well!
What better way to kick off newly married life than with a gift basket full of Italian cooking essentials? This Wedding Gift for Couple not only comes with everything they need for a romantic, home-cooked Italian dinner date, but the entire meals comes complete inside a keepsake colander! They’ll think of you each time they make themselves a feast from these gourmet goodies.
The days leading up to the big day is exciting but also very demanding. Give the couple the gift they need most – relaxation! This Wine Gift Crate Duo includes not one, but two bottles of wine (white & red!) to help the wedding couple unwind from the stress of wedding planning.
The couple will also need some serious caffeine to get through the coming weeks and months before the wedding day. We have that covered with our Coffee & Chocolates Gift Basket Premium! This impressive arrangement is a true chocolate lover’s dream gift with Mudpuppies cookies, gooey sea salt caramel filled chocolates, packages of gourmet ground coffee, and so much more! The happy couple and their friends will enjoy tasting each delectable chocolate treat!
Nothing says elegance quite like a vintage Dom Perignon to toast the couple with on their wedding day. They’ll be talking about this impressive and memorable French Champagne gift for years to come!
Another elegant gift idea is a Silver Oak & Cakebread – Red Wine Gift Basket which has a little something for everyone’s tastes – this gift includes two bold and a fragrant Cabernet Sauvignons along with a plethora of gourmet snack treats.
It wouldn’t be a wedding without the perfect wine pairings nor would it be a honeymoon without a fabulous destination. Our Vineyard Tour Trio Wine Gift Basket is a nod to both and includes a golden La Marca bubbly, a silky Mencia Roble, and a crisp Chardonnay, tucked into a beautifully woven basket. A fun way to remind the newlyweds that they will soon be heading off on their honeymoon!
There’s so many more gourmet gifts we could introduce you to but we suspect touring our website is a bit more fun. We hope these wedding gift suggestions help make your gifting a little bit easier and a whole lot more enjoyable than perusing gift registry towels or china patterns. Enjoy!
