Scottish Wedding Gifts Inspiration

Wedding gifts can be one of the more difficult parts of attending a wedding, so here are some ideas for giving your friends or family something special, or more traditional, for their Scottish affair. 

We all want to give something extra special to the bride and groom, and while there are not really many traditional gifts for guests to give there are a number of items and symbols that can be interpreted into more modern gifts to give today. If you're part of a wedding party looking for something traditional with a nod to Scottish heritage and customs, here are a few special wedding items we suggest.

Traditional gifts

A “ wedding sark” is a shirt given to the groom from the bride. It is to be worn with a kilt and in exchange the groom then pays for the wedding dress. A pretty big ask these days, to be fair! A luckenbooth brooch, usually made of silver, was given as a token of his love from the groom to his soon to be wife. This symbol is often still found in jewellery and wedding themes to this day. Gifts were also traditionally received from the best man and maid of honour. The best man gave a clock while the maid of honour offered a tea set. highland-cow-home-wedding-gift

Modern day

Wedding gifts tend to vary for couple to couple, most often based on their lifestyle and is usually dictated by the bride and groom themselves in the form of a registry or alternative request. As many couples tend to live together before they get married these days, there is less demand for those “household items” that were so desperately needed years ago when couples didn’t move in together until marriage. This is why registries are so useful now, as you then don’t end up with 5 mixers and a pile of bath towels. What, then, do you get a couple who has all the essentials they need? Many might give money or gift vouchers but why not give them something a bit more unique? Home decor

Inject a bit of Scottish charm into their lives with an array of beautiful tartan and tweed home decor. From a couple of throw cushions to a cosy oversized throw, these soft touches can instantly turn a house into a home. If the couple has Scottish heritage, take it one step further and personalise the items in their family tartan. The pieces will add a beautiful burst of colour to their home and they will have a special keepsake that reminds them not only of their history but of their big day. 

Tartan Dreams

Not many things could be cosier than climbing into a big comfy bed at the end of a long day. Treat the newlyweds to a dreamy set of tartan bedlinen complete with a duvet cover and pillowcases. Bedding can be an oft forgotten about part of the home but when you consider that the average person spends about a third of their lives sleeping, a married couple deserve for it to be a stylish and comfortable place to retire at the end of an evening.

For her

It can be hard to choose a gift that suits both the bride and groom, especially if you perhaps know one of the couple more than the other. Practical gifts are always welcome for newlyweds but something a bit more elegant surely wouldn’t go amiss. Scarves and stoles, in a variety of luxurious fabrics such as cashmere and lambswool, are a classy and useful gift, especially with the unpredictable weather of the United Kingdom. In a variety of tartans and tweeds, personalise them to correspond with the bride or groom’s heritage, or simply choose a design that “goes with everything”. Add a charming brooch for a more regal, sophisticated look that brings the look together. wedding present hip flask

For him

It seems that when it comes to weddings, the focus tends to be on the bride. The dress, the glamour - but that shouldn’t mean the groom shouldn’t get a little extra attention that day, too! Similarly to the bride, a soft cashmere or Scottish lambswool scarf as a his & her gift would give a nod to their Scottish heritage (if there is any) but also be a classy look for the new couple. If he is in fact, Scottish, a bit of bling in the form of a kilt pin or, alternatively, a set of Scottish cufflinks could be a welcomed addition to his collection. If he enjoys the odd tipple here and there, a flask gift set would surely be perfect. Include a bottle of his (or hers) favourite whisky to make it instantly useful. Get it personalised with the date of the wedding and the couple’s names for that added personal touch.

Weddings are a wonderful celebration of love, family and friendship and we hope the above Scottish wedding gifts have inspired you to seek out a more personalised touch. Whether you’re looking for a specific tartan or something special to cosy up the home, we’re positive we can help you find the perfect wedding gift.
