Weddings take place at the last minute all the time. Sometimes a cousin or a friend decides to be their own wedding event planner, you can roll with the changes. Even if you’re not invited by a friend to a so-called spontaneous wedding, you can easily forget about a gift or be so busy that you don’t have time to get one! So what do you do when you have little to no time and you’re due as a guest for your friend or family member’s big day? Throw something great together at the last minute, of course!
You can’t do it alone, so we’ve got the last-minute wedding gift ideas that you need in order to get something together and get you the door on the way to the wedding. We’ve all got busy schedules and wedding gifts can be hard to get with our full lives and obligations! Just pick the one you like best, get it wrapped or throw it in a bag, and you’re good to go!
A Spa Date Package
This is a great wedding gift choice because you can literally go out anywhere and grab it. There are spas near most cities within a reasonable distance. You can buy a specific package or just give them a gift certificate to the location so that they can pick out what they would like to enjoy! It’s a romantic gift and it’s totally usable– who wouldn’t want to go to a spa? (Make sure they’re that type of couple, though.) It’s also a great gift because it extends the honeymoon leisure feeling once they return– if only for an hour! Weddings can be stressful too, so give the happy couple a chance to soak and relax! They’ll love you for it. Not as much as each other, but a lot.
This is the ultimate gift! No one ever sees the photoshoot after the wedding coming. It’s a great way for the couple to have a little fun after the wedding and get some photos that they can have for a lifetime! Post-wedding photoshoots are really fun and the bride and groom can Instagram them and share to Facebook as well. Why should all the fun stop once you say I do?
You can craft these or you can speed-order them from Etsy or a variety of online sources– it doesn’t matter to us. His & Hers shirts may seem cheesy, but they’re not! They’re really cute. Make sure the couple is the type of wear that sort of thing. If they had glasses with writing on them during the wedding or wore shirts before they got married, or have a lot of graphic clothing with words on them, go ahead and get them. It extends the wedding fun and you can order pretty much any color you like! Make sure the sizing is correct, though.
Cash in a Card
Certain cultures do this and certain ones do not so use your discretion on this one! Cash is often a welcome gift amongst most couples, as they can always use some money to start their lives together. Just make sure that the card is cute!
