A wedding is a day of celebration, joy, and love. So, it makes perfect sense that a gift will make the day more memorable for the couple.
Whether your friend is finally getting married, or you and your fiancé are tying the knot soon, any wooden wedding gift will last long enough to keep all the good memories from that special day.
Not sure what the best gift to a newly married couple is? Here’s a list of woodworking wedding gift ideas for them!
For a newly-wedded couple who’s starting their own family already, a family tree frame sculpted on wood would make a sentimental gift! It’s also a great gift idea for old couples who renewed their vows, like your parents or grandparents.
Include all the family members’ names plus their dogs. Then, add a memorable statement at the bottom, such as “love grows here” or the family surname. This wooden family tree frame is made of cherry wood, walnut wood, or maple wood, and layered with shellac for durability.
It’s a customized gift that will look beautiful hanging on the wall for the couple to remember the family that grew out of their love for each other. The family tree will also give them a sense of identity and belongingness as they walk through their journey.
This handcrafted wooden piggy bank is shaped like a letter and includes a printed name on the acrylic cover. Ask the seller to put the names of the newlyweds on it so that the couple knows that you put a lot of thought into the gift!
This piggy bank will also reinforce their “always save money” attitude. Even though they are more likely to open a joint bank account, your gift will help them organize their loose change and see the bigger picture when it comes to their finances and other shared responsibilities.
Because the front part is made of acrylic, the partners will be able to track how much they have saved. Once it’s time to open the piggy bank, they just have to unscrew the cover.

A simple but useful wedding gift that will make the couple remember you every time they have their favorite drink is a wooden coaster. You can also give this laser-cut beermat as an anniversary, shower, birthday, or housewarming present.

Preparing a charcuterie board is one of the most romantic date night ideas for a couple who just got married! So, give them a customized cheese board with their names engraved on it. You can also add their wedding date, family name, or a heartfelt quote to inspire them.
