Ah, Wedding Season is upon us! And with that, many of us are running around trying to find the perfect gift for the lovely couples in our lives. Don’t get me wrong, registries are great! But some of us like to think outside the box. That said, here are my favorite wedding gifts for that awesome couple in your life!
- Dollar Shave Club
My husband and I have had a Dollar Shave Club Subscription for about 3 years now. And I’m never going back! I love the quality of their product so much, I got everyone in my family (including my mother!) to switch. While the company does seem to be targeted towards men, the products are fit for a queen!You can choose a 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month subscription for under $100. https://www.dollarshaveclub.com/gift/plan/4x-gift-bundle
- Amazon Prime Membership
According to statista.com, Amazon has become the top online retailer in the United States (http://www.statista.com/topics/846/amazon/). So who wouldn’t love free two-day shipping and instant TV/movie streaming? Giving Prime is quick and easy. Plus, if the couple already has a Prime Subscription, they can redeem your gift for an Amazon.com gift card!
A one-year subscription is $99.https://www.amazon.com/gp/prime/pipeline/prime_gifting_landing
- Omaha Steaks
Since the new bride and groom are getting tons of new cookware, dishes, and cutlery, why not give them something to cook? Omaha Steaks are a great option since the couple can keep them frozen until they’re ready to use them! Although there are many packages to choose from (none are specifically called Wedding Packages), my favorite is The Fantastic Feast for $76.99. Bonus: you can add a bottle of wine starting at $39.99. (Disclaimer: please make sure that the couple are not vegetarian or vegan and that the shipment is delivered before or after the honeymoon.)
- Living Social Deals
With Living Social, the possibilities are endless and vary by location. My favorite options are couples cooking classes, wine tastings, and unique experiences. However, you can find some awesome personalized gifts including glasses, coasters, and wood cutting boards. Prices vary by location. https://www.livingsocial.com/gift-ideas/collections/wedding-gifts
Netflix has become an entertainment staple for people everywhere. Help the newlyweds binge watch together with a Netflix subscription! Available for purchase as a gift card for any amount, couples that already have a subscription can use the card to offset the monthly cost. The plans range from $7.99/month to $11.99/month.https://www.amazon.com/Netflix-Gift-Card-E-mail-Delivery/dp/B01730QPK8/ref=sr_1_1?s=gift-cards&ie=UTF8&qid=1465873386&sr=1-1&keywords=Netflix Bonus: if the happy couple has a great sense of humor, consider Cornetto’s Commitment Rings! The new way to make sure one partner isn’t watching episodes ahead of the other.

- The Nocking Point Membership
Based in Walla Walla, Washington, this awesome company ships wine, coffee, and a selection of accessories like clothing, comic books, and drinking gear. With 2 different clubs, it’s easy to find the perfect option for that out-of-the-box couple. And because there is no membership fee, you can decide how many boxes you would like the couple to receive. Just remember to cancel the subscription! Boxes start at $40 for NP Goods (http://nockingpointwines.com/np-goods/) and $90 for The Wine Club (http://nockingpointwines.com/wine-club/). NP Goods is available in all 50 states but Wine Club has restrictions.
- Home Chef Meal Subscription
Home Chef is a highly rated meal subscription service that has become very popular with busy couples and families. The process is simple: you set your taste preferences/allergies online, they suggest a menu based on those preferences, choose your menu on their site and everything you need to make your meals is delivered to your door pre-portioned and insulated. Meals take about 30 minutes to prepare. Home Chef is $9.95 per serving. Send the newlyweds a gift card here (https://www.homechef.com/gifts) and they can schedule delivery at their convenience.
I hope these subscriptions services help you come up with a great, out-of-the-box gift idea for the newlyweds in your life.
