Straight-Up Guide to Gay & Lesbian Wedding Gifts
Summer wedding season is here! Chances are you’re headed to someone’s nuptials this summer. And chances are, your hip queer friends don’t want a stack of tacky “his and his” towels or a set or “her’s and her’s mugs. Here is a guide to summer wedding gifts for 2018 - for every couple, budget, and celebration.
For The Chefs
A total no-brainer gift for any couple? A cookbook! All about tacos! This cookbook, Tacopedia, is equal parts kitschy and practical. Plus, its available on Amazon for under $30 - come through Prime shipping!
For The Nostalgic
I’m in love with these Custom Floral Heart prints from Rifle Paper Co. They’re totally unique and will make a gorgeous addition to any home.
For The Photogs
Another classic for couples of any age, gender, and style is a photo frame for all those wedding pics. Keep is simple and minimalist in white marble - I like this sweet scalloped option from Urban Outfitters or this desk-sized version available on Amazon.
For The Writers
Every couple needs thank-you notes. I like these super cute animal postcards for an unfussy, laid-back vibe.
For The Couple Who Has Everything
No gift registry? No problem. Snag a gift certificate for their favorite local restaurant, or foot the bill for a weekend getaway. Airbnb gift cards work too.
For The Hot Couple
*Shameless plug alert* How about an SlutBox subscription? You can choose from one month, three months, six months, or a year of slutsentials! Help them start things off spicy, sexy and intersectional!
For The Practical
>Another budget-friendly, practical gift option - gift your friends with the dry ingredients (and dishware) to make your favorite recipe! Think gourmet dry pasta, a jar of sauce, a block of dry-aged cheese, and a bottle of wine. Or indulge a sweet tooth with a cute pie dish, a jar of pie filling, and a rolling pin.
For The Smallest Budget
Really broke? A thoughtful card is ultimately more meaningful than another bottle of artisanal olive oil or a set of sheets off their registry. Tell them what you love about them individually, and as a couple, and share your wishes for their union. They’ll keep that note forever.
