Weddings are a whole lot of work. Maybe you’ve planned one. Or maybe you’ve been witness to the planning of one. No matter what, you can sympathize with friends who have had to reschedule their wedding since the coronavirus hit. Simply put, it’s a bummer. 

That’s why we’re here to help. We know you’ll be there when their day finally comes, but a thoughtful gift to lift their spirits can go a long way. So we rounded up some things that’ll say ‘we support you.’

Something that’ll remind them the best is yet to come…

Motivational Gift Box

$26.97, Succulent Kreations Co., Etsy

Sometimes the best thing you can do is show you’re thinking of them. This box comes with a succulent, candle, matches, and personalized message. Hugs (unfortunately) not included.

Something they can enjoy together if they can’t share a bottle with you...

Personalized Wine Label

$4.56+, Farrah and Eve, Etsy

Because you’re marking the date no matter where it lands. And in the meantime, they can sip on a bottle dedicated to them. Cheers to that.

Buy it

Something they can look at to remember how (and where) their love started…

The Map of Everyone

$39.99+, The Book of Everyone

Let’s go back...back to the beginning. This custom map showcases an important place for them. Whether it be where they met, vacationed, or got engaged. Cue the nostalgia.

Buy it

Something to hang on their wall to celebrate becoming partners…

Minimalist Wedding Print

$9.98, LouLou Art Studio, Etsy

Something they can use for future gatherings…

Custom Cheese Board

$29.95+, Flowertown Weddings, Etsy

Everyone loves a good charcuterie board. Plus, it can be displayed in their home until dinner parties become a thing again. Counting down the days...

Something they can add to their home to declare it’s theirs…

And to make it a bit cozier. Happy spouse, happy house. Or something like that.

Something that can showcase their favorite vacations…

Photo Coasters

Buy it

Something they can use to toast their pending union…

Champagne Flutes

$25/set of 2, Mark & Graham

It may not be happening this year, but it’s still a cause for celebration. So tell them to pop that bottle of champagne. They’ve dealt with a lot and deserve it.

Buy it

Something to help them unwind after calling all their vendors…

A Journal For Two

$12.95, Barnes & Noble

This one has different prompts so they can unplug and spend some quality time together. That doesn’t involve discussing details with their venue. Or their florist. Phew.

Something that’ll make date night (from home) a bit more delicious…

Something to document their journey together…

Scrapbook Album

Something small that’ll make them smile every time they step outside...

Hand-Painted Doormat
