11 Personalized Wedding Gifts To Impress The Newlyweds

Wedding gifts carry a lot of emotional significance: Expected to stand the test of time, they are the thoughtful reminders of your blessings to the happy couple. To offer your congratulations and communicate your gratitude for being a part of their big day, these presents should feel unique and personal — and symbolize more than a gesture of etiquette. While the options are endless, customizing an item is one of the best way to go if you want to avoid any awkward repetition with another guest.
There are endless online vendors that specialize in personalization — from embroidery to engraving to custom-printing — but not all of them are quality enough to be wedding gifts. Fret not, we've picked 11 of the prettiest, most useful customized goodies that won't spend anytime collecting dust in the attic.
