Gifts From Him To Her 

A Map 

We are not talking about the map of the world but rather an adorable piece of decor that can take your spouse back in time. 

Enclosed in a frame, you can have all the locations where you went on a date and first met. Beautiful, isn’t it? It is a keepsake. 

PS: make sure that the locations are accurate! 


Get her jewelry – trust us, it is the only thing that all women love. You can get her a personalized bracelet or a pair of beautiful diamond earrings or a necklace with both of your initials. 

Wedding Journal

A wedding journal is an excellent way to demonstrate your commitment to the relationship and your eagerness to spend time with them.

It is perfect for you to remember celebrations of this special day, and you can begin by writing a special message on the first page of the journal.

A Bobblehead 

If you are familiar with bobbleheads, you know how adorable they can be. 

You can easily personalize a couple of bobbleheads through a seller online or off-line try Lucky Bobbleheads; they are amazing artists doing bobbleheads to perfection. 

Do not worry if you do not have any wedding pictures because obviously, you’re going to give this before the wedding. Duh!

It would help if you had the picture of you and your spouse, and the company will personalize the wedding dress on her bobblehead and a tux for your bobblehead. 

Gifts From Her to Him

A Personalised Watch

Men love watches; after all, it is the only accessory apart from the wallet they use extensively.

So why not give them a timeless watch? 

You can even opt for a pocket watch, or you can personalize a simple watch with a message inside the watch- in the straps. Dapper, isn’t it? 

Wedding Compass 

If you are one of those couples who love to travel, then this is a perfect gift.

You can have the inside of the compass read a message that can make the present 100% more heartfelt. 

Bucket List Diary 

What better way to start this new journey than to note down all your dreams and aspirations as a couple.

It can be anything from traveling the world together to building a business empire- jot it down. This will keep you motivated and excited for what the future beholds.

A Starry Night Snapshot 

This wedding gift is lovely and thoughtful. You can do this by looking up the night sky on Google when you first met, the day you fell in love, or even the day you’re getting married.

Print and frame the night sky. This is a no-brainer gift that both of you will remember for years to come.


These gifts are sure to warm your spouse’s heart, and small sweet gestures matter. There’s nothing more precious than a personalized gift accompanied by a simple note.
