The Most Popular Wedding Gifts With The Wedding Shop

The Wedding Shop is a multi-award-winning gift list service that has been supporting couples for three decades. Join Fenton Brides x The Wedding Shop to discover ideas and inspiration for your dream wedding gift list.

Wedding gifts are a beautiful and personal gesture of your appreciation for the newly married couple and The Wedding Shop has seen over one hundred thousand gifts added to couples' wedding gift lists, many of which were gifts that elevated experiences at home and away. Spa breaks, Airbnb vouchers and weekend getaways were top picks for many. And for the home, you can add gifts to transform your interiors into calming, multi-functional spaces. Think natural aromatherapy for a wellness boost, stunning tableware to throw at home parties and barbeques for indoor/outdoor living.

Popular Wedding Gifts to think about when you are building your wedding list. 

Gifts That Spark Joy

The Wedding Shop advise couples to using their gift lists to add joy to their lives. Think about the wedding gifts that will elevate the little things in life, with pops of colour to give that feel-good factor. Think coloured glassware, playful napkin rings and fun outdoor furnishings. All those little dopamine details!

New Travel Experiences

This year, The Wedding Shop has seen couples plan travel holidays with more of an open mind. Couples are trying new things, exploring different destinations and booking with travel brands more than ever before. So, it was no surprise when Airbnb immediately became a top added-to-list brand when it was launched at The Wedding Shop last year. The Wedding Shop predicts this will continue into 2024. Other popular travel brands include Mr & Mrs Smith and Truly Experiences, as well as custom honeymoon funds.

Earth Conscious Gifts

This year, couples will continue to use their wedding gift lists to take action and build a more sustainable lifestyle. The Wedding Shop predicts that it's no longer enough for homewares to look good - they must do good too. Couples will prioritise lifestyle upgrades that will allow them to build sustainable practices into their new normal.

Gifts For Guys

Move over bridezillas: it’s the groomzillas time to shine! In 2023, The Wedding Shop has seen that men have been more interested in gift list planning. The Wedding Shop saw the percentage of men signing up for a wedding list increase compared to the previous years.

Wedding Gifts To Date Differently

We have already seen it in Pinterest's prediction reports and couples' gift list choices: couples want to make date nights more than dinner and a movie. Think four-day hiking adventures, beer-making workshops and cookery courses. Couples want to date differently! You can use your gift list to plan post-wedding date nights, adding a different experience for each month of the year after your wedding.

Front Door Staple Wedding Gifts 

Another Pinterest-worthy trend is gifts for the entrance of houses. It is a simple but understated place in the home. After all, it's the first thing you see when you get home from a long day! The Wedding Shop is seeing couples add gifts to make this space inviting and warm, from room diffusers to statement chandeliers, storage units and gallery walls. Couples will continue to add gifts to elevate their front hallways and home fronts in 2024.
