To help you find the perfect present for the couple who have everything, here are five fantastically quirky wedding gift ideas.

1. A 3D-printed wedding topper

The wedding cake is going to be one of the focal points of the couple’s big day, so why not make theirs unforgettable by having a wedding cake topper created in the bride and groom’s exact likeness. 3D-printing still seems the stuff of science-fiction to many people, but the cost of this new tech has significantly dropped in the past few years. You can now even get a model 3D-printed in supermarkets, with ASDA offering a competitively priced 3DME service. Have a cake topper of the bride and groom 3D-printed for a truly unique wedding gift. 


2. An instant camera

In the digital age, not many people end up with physical photographs to mark their most precious memories. A great gift for a happy couple on their big day – especially if they’re old enough to remember the days of roll-up cameras – is an instant camera.

Polaroid are still the biggest name in instant cameras, but their products have come a long way since they first hit the market. Their Snap Instant digital camera, which you can pick up with free next-day delivery from Ryman, instantly produces digital-quality images. This will be the perfect way for them to capture all of the great memories from their ceremony and reception to keep forever.


3. Be their chauffeur for the day

Hiring a wedding car can be expensive. If you’re a car fanatic who owns a nice vehicle, a totally unique gift you can offer the couple on their big day is to be their chauffer. This could save them hundreds or even thousands of pounds that they can then spend on setting up their home together or making their honeymoon extra special.

To make your vehicle fit for a bride and groom on their big day, take a look at Autosessive’s complete guide to detailing your car, in which you’ll discover everything you need to know to have your car looking flawless.


4. Have their wedding song framed

There are few things more meaningful to a couple than the song they choose to accompany their first dance with as man and wife. For a gift as thoughtful as it is unique, you can have the lyrics to their wedding song framed through Etsy; it will make the perfect keepsake from their big day.


5. A map to mark their travels together

If you’re buying for a well-travelled couple, a Scratch Map will make the perfect wedding gift. Starting with the destination of their honeymoon, they can scratch off each of the locations they travel to together, helping them remember their adventures for years to come.
