Unique wedding gifts under $50

To help nail down the best wedding gifts on Etsy, we went straight to the source: our very own gifting merchandising lead and in-house expert, Adam Halvorsen. One question on the top of our minds: For those moments where you're looking for something heartfelt that won't break the bank, what makes a good small wedding gift? "A good small wedding gift is anything that's useful, beautiful, and most importantly unique," says Adam. "I always encourage couples to add pieces to their registries that they can imagine reaching for in their daily lives—and that bring a smile to their face just by looking at them."

A personalized cutting board

Printed linen napkins

Linen napkins wedding gift idea SHOP: Linen napkins from Julie Peach, from $28

Table linens are a traditional wedding gift for good reason, but we love the unique spin of these block-printed beauties. Featuring an original wave illustration that's been hand-carved into the blocks, they promise to bring soothing seaside vibes to every mealtime moment.

Engraved coasters

Personalized coaster wedding gift idea SHOP: Personalized coasters from Shop Ingrained Goods, $35 for set of four

For a final dining table touch, a sophisticated set of coasters is hard to beat. One of our favorite personalized wedding gifts, these laser-engraved hexagon staples are hewn from mango wood and marble—a timeless and truly breathtaking combo.

Personalized wedding gifts under $100

When it comes to gifts for weddings, figuring out how much to spend—or to ask your guests to spend—can be tricky territory to navigate. "The most appropriate wedding gift to give depends on the guest's relationship to the couple, as well as on their own personal means, with most folks using $50 as a loose minimum threshold," says Adam. That said, there are plenty of ways to make a present with a smaller price tag feel extra-special—including opting for personalization. "Personalized wedding gifts are my hands-down favorites. For guests, picking something custom-made shows that you thought to plan ahead, and for couples it means you end up with something truly one-of-a-kind." The best part? Many personalized presents are more affordable than you might think!

A wedding venue sketch

Wedding venue portrait wedding gift idea SHOP: Custom wedding venue watercolor portrait from Jen Russell Smith, from $85

Enter this handsome black walnut keepsake box, engraved with the seal of your choice and boasting ample room to store cards, corsages, and any other mini meaningful mementos.

An heirloom holiday ornament

Custom ornament wedding gift SHOP: Custom holiday ornament from MAERRIMENT, from $65

Ensure the warmest of warm welcomes with an oversized, rubber-backed doormat emblazoned with the couple's name and "established" date—aka the year they kicked off a lifetime of marital bliss.

Meaningful wedding gifts under $150

"Thoughtful wedding present ideas are in no short supply on Etsy," says Adam, "but when it comes to finding the best gift for a wedding, there's no one-size-fits-all answer—it all depends on the newlyweds in question and their unique personal style." Meaningful wedding gifts come in all shapes and sizes, but one rule holds true across the board: If a couple has a registry, it's best not to stray from the list. "Etiquette says: Stick to the registry," confirms Adam, "which means brides and grooms should ensure they have a robust selection of gifts for guests to choose from—and that they're taking a range of budgets into account, too." But what if no registry exists, you ask? "In that case, guests have full permission to get creative! And any of the picks on this list are a great place to start."

Newlywed gifts over $150

Special situations call for special items—say, for example, when you're looking for a bigger-ticket item for an extra-close loved one, or going in on a group gift. And gift seekers take note: these finds are equally lovely ways to recognize a couple who may not have had a traditional wedding. "Say the couple had a courthouse wedding or eloped and didn't have a registry," says Adam. "That doesn't mean you can't surprise them with a thoughtful newlywed gift to recognize their major milestone!" These splurge-worthy finds are heirlooms in the making, so if you're getting hitched yourself, adding a few to your registry for consideration is totally fair play. Just be sure to balance them out with some of the more affordable best wedding gift options from the sections above.
