While an expensive gift may seem like the ideal option for some, a handmade project is often much more special. From custom cufflinks to a personalized cocktail tray, here are some of our favorite DIY wedding gifts for the couple on their special day.
Handwritten Coffee Mug
Some of our favorite DIY wedding gifts are the ones that are handwritten with love. These personalized mugs are quick and easy, and let you be as creative as you’d like. Simply use a permanent marker to draw your design on the mug, stick it in the oven and you’re all set!
You can never go wrong with a great photo collage. Not only is it a great way for the couple to look back on their memories, you can also choose some of your favorite moments with them as well. Display the photos however you’d like, whether it’s in a wooden frame, arranged in the shape of a heart or attached to string so they can easily hang it in their own home.
Not sure what to give the groom on his big day? Custom cufflinks are an easy DIY wedding gift and can be given to the groom, his groomsmen or even the father of the bride. You can fill the cufflinks with whatever design you’d like such as his initials, a short phrase or an image of a ring.
Personalized Cutting Board
For the couples who love to cook, a cutting board is the perfect DIY wedding gift. Make it extra special by personalizing it with their initials, names or wedding date as well. You will need a wood burning tool for this at-home project, but they can be found in most craft stores for under $20.
Serve up a fun gift that the couple will use over and over! A DIY cocktail tray is the perfect addition to their bar cart, kitchen or living room. Once you’ve found a plain tray, simply decorate it with paint, tape or other fun designs. We recommend covering the finished product with a protectant spray as well.
Now that the couple has some new bling on their ring fingers, a ring dish makes the ideal DIY wedding gift! All you’ll need is some adhesive vinyl and a pair of small bowls for this project. Make one for both the bride and groom with customized initials on each dish in their favorite color, or even add some glitter for extra flair.
