The Best Holiday Gifts for Newlyweds

We know, we know, another holiday gift guide.

But hear us out, this one was carefully created with newlyweds in mind.

If you’re shopping for gifts for newlyweds (or are looking for inspo to add to your own holiday wish list!) it can be a doozy! After a bridal shower and wedding, what else is there left to give? Certainly they don’t need anything that was on their registry, nor do they need wedding-themed souvenirs or gifts. So, what’s a gift-giver to do? 

Don’t stress — we can help. Here are some of our favorite gifts out there this season that are perfect for the newlyweds in your life. 

aura frame

Aura Picture Frame ($159+)

After their engagement, bridal shower, wedding, and honeymoon, a newlywed couple undoubtedly has hundreds (if not thousands!) of photos from such a special time. The Aura Frame is one of the most perfect gifts for newlyweds, as this one full HD digital frame can display a slideshow of images in chic, compact quality. Connected to Wi-Fi, the various Aura styles can be controlled and contributed to via app, so you can even link it to family and friends to add photos, too!

It’s a truly one of a kind way to honor such a special day, without being too “wedding” themed. It’s timeless, and super cool.

Many newlywed couples are still adjusting to their new routines as a couple. One of the have-to-do-it but you either love it or hate it chores of cohabitation is cooking.

This infrared sauna blanket soothes and rejuvenates as it relieves aches and pains, calms your mood, and encourages a great sweat session with detoxing and calorie burning properties.

There are so many benefits of having live plants in the home, and chief among them is how gorgeous they can be. Thanks to Bloomscape, you can find and send the couple a beautiful houseplant or tree with varying levels of care, temperature, and lighting requirements.
