Based on the engaged couple’s housing situation, you’ve got a vast array of tree choices for yards or pots. Wisteria trees stand for romance.

Give the couple a respite
Couples caught up in our fast-paced world of careers and active social lives often have little time to “smell the roses” and unwind. That’s why a couple’s retreat that gives the pair a respite from the world in an environment that reminds them of Earth’s precious treasures belongs on our unique personalized wedding gifts lists. Here, travel editors at “The Telegraph” have done all of the hard work for you so consider their picks.
Donate to the couple’s favourite charity
There is no shortage of nature-related nonprofits throughout the U.K. As you search for unique wedding gifts for couples, find which one(s) have earned the couple’s loyalties and donations and then contribute to that cause. Can’t sleuth out this information no matter how hard you try? Here are 12 great options. Send a contribution in the name of the engaged couple, and while you’re at it, add a donation of your own.
Kiss the cooks with a delicious wedding gift
After a hectic day, who wants to cook? Give an equal-opportunity gift that can turn the newlyweds in your life into creative cooks by bestowing upon them a course in cookery. Vegans and vegetarians especially covet classes that help them churn out creative meals. Need a present to bring to the wedding party? Matching aprons make terrific, unique, personalized wedding gifts that show how clever you are.
Try a wooden gift with some personal touch
Customized gifts opened the doors to a wide array of options. Even the simplest gift can be turned into a personalized masterpiece. Out of a wide variety of choices, giving a personalised gift with a name of receiver engraving onto the gift still makes a great unique gift, and will never go out of style. A piece of eco-friendly wooden gift with some personal touch engraving onto the wood makes the perfect and green gift. However, only purchase such products from manufacturers who treasure the environment and implement non-toxic and green policy.
Dog day afternoon for art lovers
Engaged couples who think as highly of their dog as they do of other family members (but are discreet about it) would love you forever if your wedding gift choice proved to be a hand-carved guard dog sold by one of U.K.’s favourite fair trade furniture emporiums, Myakka. What’s great about this gift? It’s a limited edition and no walking, feeding or grooming is required. As one of the most unique eco-friendly wedding gift ideas on this list, we feel confident that this sculpture won’t be duplicated!
