Oh, and if you are searching for other gift ideas, we’ve got loads more gift guides that are sure to cover who you’re buying for!
Great Christmas Gifts for Newlyweds
In this list of presents for newlyweds, we’ve tried to include gift ideas in different price ranges and for couples with lots of different interests.
When browsing through the list and trying to see if a newlywed gift idea would make sense for your couple, always keep their interests and personalities in mind!
Married Life Coloring Book
Does the couple you want to get a gift for have a good sense of humor? Then this married life coloring book would be perfect for them!
Not only can coloring be a very relaxing activity, the couple is sure to get a good laugh at some of the pictures in this book.
Matching Christmas Onesies
Matching Christmas onesies for Christmas? Yes, please! Most newlyweds will still be in a happiness bubble and will likely feel very close to each other.
So, gifting them matching onesies might be the perfect gift! They’ll love wearing a matching outfit for Christmas – and it can keep them warm the rest of the winter, too!
Wedding rings have a lot of meaning and often come with a larger price tag so it makes sense to have a designated place for them.
Depending on the couples’ jobs, hobbies, etc. they might not be able or willing to wear their wedding bands at all times. This is where having a designated place to store the rings comes in very handy.
Because let’s face it: there’s nothing worse than forgetting where you put your ring and then freaking out while searching for it.
Newlyweds Christmas Ornament
This is a classic Christmas gift for newlyweds – but a good one. A Christmas ornament is the perfect reminder of their first Christmas together. Hopefully, it’ll be something that makes them smile year after year as they decorate their Christmas tree.
We really like this rustic tree ornament – but there are lots of different options out there in case you’re looking for a different style.
For the stylish newlywed couple in your life, a picture display is another great idea. This Macrame is practical and looks great hanging in a bedroom, den, office, or basically any place in the house where cute photos would look nice.
We really like the idea of a photo display for a newlywed couple because there is bound to be some fresh photos (aka wedding photos) that would be perfect to print out and display together!
Bucket List Scratch Off Poster
The newlywed couple surely has already made lots of plans and talked about their dreams for the future. A bucket list scratch off poster can give them the chance to document their adventures – big or small – together.
It can also be a fun “challenge” to do some activities together and then scratch them off on the poster. This also comes in super handy when they don’t know what to do and are looking for inspiration!
“Key To A Happy Marriage”
If you want to get the newlyweds a very symbolic Christmas gift, you can gift them the “key to a happy marriage”. There’s also a marriage poem on the box which adds another level of meaning.
This is a good gift if the couple likes sentimental items and hasn’t received a similar gift at the wedding already. However, if the couple likes to have a very clutter-free and minimal environment in their home, this might not be the perfect gift for them.
It’s normal that a relationship changes slightly after you get married. That’s why it can be a good idea to write down your thoughts and experiences during the newlywed phase.
A couples’ journal like this makes it easy for both partners to participate. This journal helps couples to start conversations about different topics – and might also help them grow their relationship further.
It can also be nice to have something to look back to the beginning stages of a marriage at a later point in life.
Wine Anniversary Box
This wine anniversary box is a great gift idea if you want to get the newlyweds something that’ll last for a while. We really like this idea of opening a bottle of wine every year for the wedding anniversary.
By gifting them something that’s for their third wedding anniversary, you’re also implying that you believe in their relationship. The wooden box also looks beautiful and can be a great decor piece.
Unique Coffee Maker
Have you seen a coffee maker as unique as this one before? We hadn’t! If the newlywed couple is into coffee, this might be the perfect addition to their kitchen.
Besides making a delicious cup of coffee, this coffee maker is also a definite eye-catcher and conversation starter!
Mr. + Mrs. Mugs
Yes, we know that this is a very cliché gift for newlyweds but there is just something about couples’ mugs. They are a popular gift for a reason.
We like that this mug set comes in a gift box and has a classic elegant look to it. However, if your couple has a more extravagant taste, there are certainly other couple mug designs out there as well!
Our Moments Game
Even married couples can learn a lot about each other – and communication is important to keep the relationship strong. A card game like “Our Moments” is not only fun, it also provides couples with thought-provoking conversation starters.
Mr. + Mrs. Keychains
If you want to gift the newlyweds a classic “Mr and Mrs. gift” but are not a fan of couples’ mugs, then these stylish keychains might be perfect.
In case your couple only moved in together after their wedding, a gift like this can have even more meaning. Having the keys of their first joint home on matching keychains does sound quite romantic, doesn’t it?
Even if the couple has been living together for years, they might still appreciate this gift!
Personalized Cutting Board
This is another classic gift for newlyweds – but for good reason. A personalized cutting board is just so symbolic of two people really starting their life together.
Of course you can be a bit creative when it comes to personalization and don’t have to go for the standard “marriage date and their names”. Depending on how well you know them, adding an inside joke or similar might be what takes this gift from classic to truly unique.
If the newlywed couple is into entertaining and having a drink here and there, this mixology set might be for them. As a potential upgrade to their current set-up, it’s a gift that often makes people feel sophisticated and grown-up!
Depending on whether or not the couple has lived together for a long time before getting married, there might be some adjustments to be made to their lifestyles.
And sooner or later the question of “what should we make for dinner” will come up and neither person will have an idea! However, with a cook book that includes hundreds of recipes for two people they’ll be bound to find something that they both enjoy!
Every newlywed couple should have at least a few fun games at home. They are great for game night dates with just the two of them and for having friends and/or family over as well.
There are many great games out there, but we thought a fun game like “I Should Have Known That!” would be a great gift for lots of people. They’ll surely have lots to laugh about – and will learn a new thing or two along the way as well!
Home Spa Set
A home spa set can be a great Christmas gift for newlyweds considering that people spend more time at home this year than ever before. With a spa set for home, any newlyweds can treat themselves to a relaxing evening without having to worry about leaving their house.
If the newlywed couple is into silly jokes and still in the process of decorating their home together, consider getting them a doormat.
Often these are purchases that are either overlooked completely (in Lisa’s case) or not a priority. But a doormat can actually make a big difference.
It’s not only functional and keeps the dirt outside (some of), it can also feel quite welcoming for people coming to your home. That’s a plus if the couple is still trying to get to know their neighbors!
Things to Consider When Buying Christmas Gifts for Newlyweds
Before buying a Christmas gift for newly married couples, there are a few things that you should think about and keep in mind. We’ll talk about some of the most important ones in no particular order below.
Interests and Personalities
Of course, two of the most important things to consider are the couples’ interests and their personalities. If they don’t like drinking coffee at all, then the unique coffee maker in the list above would probably not be a good gift choice.
Similarly, if neither of them likes to write, then the couples’ journal might not be the most suitable gift. In that case, the couples’ game with conversation starters might be a better option.
This is true for many other gifts as well – so always keep the couples’ interests and personalities in the back of your head when browsing for gifts! And since this is supposed to be a gift for both of them, it’s also important that they would both enjoy it. So don’t get a gift that only one of them would appreciate!
Their previous and current living situation can also slightly impact what type of gift you’d get them. If they have been living together for a long time before getting married and have a home that they’ve decorated together over the years, then maybe stay away from home decor and classic things like kitchen equipment.
However, if the couple only recently moved in together after getting married and is still in the process of furnishing and getting things for their home, then decor items, kitchen utensils, etc. might actually be a good gift choice. Ideally, you find out beforehand whether they already own a specific item before making a purchase.
It goes without saying that product quality is important, especially when it comes to a very meaningful gift and/or electronic items. That’s why we’d recommend always reading the description and the reviews of a product before making a purchase.
Last but not least, price can also play an important role when you’re searching for Christmas gifts for newlyweds. Of course, first and foremost, you need to set a budget and stick to it when you buy.
There’s nothing worse than leaving yourself in a poor financial situation just because of a gift for another couple. Plus, if these newlyweds know/love you, they wouldn’t want you to do this to yourself.
Often, price does dictate the quality of the product but this isn’t a firm rule – just something to keep in mind. You can find loads of cheaper gifts that are just as meaningful as one large gift – but if you feel one large (more expensive) gift fits your newlyweds and you can afford it then go for it!
And there you have it – some awesome Christmas gifts for newlyweds. In the end, there is no perfect gift that fits every newlywed couple. It’s up to you to know your couple, know your budget, and trust your gut. You’ll have a hard time going wrong if you keep these buying factors in mind! Happy newlywed gift Christmas gift shopping!
