Gifts for Summer Newlyweds

Newlywed gifts

Yes, we know newlyweds create their registries so that they can get the quality items they need to start a home. But I think that sometimes couples forget about the small statement pieces that really add that flair to their home. Pieces that show their personality. So i’ve wrapped up a few items that I think are perfect for your friends getting hitched this summer.

I think one thing that all newlyweds are usually excited to do is entertain. It’s an exciting time when the couple is making a house their home and wanting to share it with their friends and family. Top that off with longer hours of daylight and the beautiful weather that comes with summer, and you have the perfect combination for hosting some of your first gatherings. Help get them started with some quirky accessories for the table like a pitcher with an unexpected touch, some elaborate corn picks, or colorful coasters to brighten up their basics. Then there are items that might encourage the newlyweds to host something new like a tasting party or an outdoor picnic at a nearby park.

Summer gifts

A new cookbook is a fun item that couples can use together and bond with in the kitchen. And if they aren’t cooks, it’s a great new hobby they can learn together!

Little odds and ends like drink dispensers, cocktail stirrers and interesting snack bowls are definitely necessities as well when you are hosting an event. Find some with interesting details like the ones above. Not only are they a fun item to have, they will be conversation starters at the party!

Unique and quality towels will be a long lasting gift in the newlywed’s household. Great for lucky couples with a pool, but also for those get togethers they might host outside of home like I mentioned above. Think picnics, beach days or just something to cozy up with on a cool summer night.
