Affordable Wedding Gifts The Happy Couple Will Love

Is it just us, or has there been more weddings than ever this year. With the combination of postponed wedding celebrations and newly engaged quarantine couple, 2021 has been chock full of romantic ceremonies, destination celebrations, and everything in between. While we all love to celebrate love, weddings can get seriously expensive. From the ceremony attire to the travel expenses and gifts, attending more than one wedding in a single year (or season for that matter) can do major damage to your bank account.

Fortunately, there are a few easy ways to save on the big day. One of the best ways to do this? Skip the extravagant, over-the-top wedding gifts and opt for something affordable, yet more thoughtful, instead. Give the happy couple smothering they’ll actually use! 

Don’t know where to start? Keep reading below for three affordable wedding gift ideas the bride and groom will actually love.

At-Home Coffee Kit

Once the honeymoon is over and work starts back up, the newlyweds won’t have as much time to spend with each other throughout the week. That’s why mornings are an important time for the couple to bond and connect as husband and wife. What better way to do this than by chatting over a delicious cup of dalgona coffee? Make their mornings easy and relaxed by giving them a Whipped Drinks Whip Kit. For only $49.99, they’ll get a high-speed frother (batteries included), gilded frothing jug, carton of Whip Sticks, and a recipe book so they can try new whipped coffee concoctions each morning! The best part? A cup of Whipped Drinks only takes 60 seconds or less to make. 

Homemade Movie Night Experience

There’s nothing like cuddling up with your significant other to enjoy a good movie at home on the couch. Help the newlyweds take their next movie night to the next level with a homemade movie night experience. Put together a gift basket of popcorn, candy, movie theater tickets, a list of must-watch movies, and more. They’ll appreciate the sentimental value of this gift over any monetary value you could give them instead. It’s thoughtful in addition to giving them a reason to have date night at home. 

A Personalized World Map

Just because the honeymoon may be over, doesn’t mean the vacations have to end! The happy couple has a lifetime of travel and adventures ahead of them. Gift them with a personalized world map so they can create a travel bucket list together. Include pins or stickers so they can visually keep track of all the places they have gone and still have yet to go. It will be a fun and simple way for them to plan, enjoy, and remember all of the destinations they go both as a couple and with their future family. 

Moral of the story is that wedding gifts don’t need to be expensive to be meaningful. There are so many wonderful options out there that the newlyweds will cherish forever. Start by shopping the three gifts above, and show us your wedding day gifts by tagging us on Instagram @whippeddrinks.
