Today's guest post is all about Southern wedding gift ideas. I have to say, these are pretty spot on for what to get when you don't know what to gift someone! 

Giving wedding gifts is a challenging task and can be even more confusing if you need to follow certain traditions such as they have in the south. You want your gift to be on point, memorable and truly make a statement with the bride and groom.
Take your time and do your homework, so you don’t have any regrets at the end of the day. Shop around and use the list of ideas below to help you get started in the right direction. Enjoy the process and how great it’ll feel to finally come to a decision about what the perfect southern wedding gift will be for your friend or family member.

Supplies for Outdoor Activities

Outdoor activities and hunting are very common hobbies in the south, especially when the weather is nice. A unique idea for a southern wedding gift is to give archery supplies or hunting gear, which is a great activity the bride and groom can do together after they’re married. Other ideas include camping, hunting or fishing gear so they can embark on new adventures as a couple doing what they enjoy.

Formal China

People in the south love to throw dinner parties for friends and family members and this is especially expected of new brides. The perfect southern wedding gift is to purchase formal china that the newly married couple can use to entertain in their home. Get them a full set so it all matches and they have all they need to look put together and organized. Luckily, there are a wide variety of beautiful patterns and styles to choose from.

Piece of Art

Another excellent southern wedding gift idea is to buy the couple a stunning piece of art or opt to make your own. For instance, purchase colors you know will look good in their home and artists you know they love, otherwise make a gift using memories from the wedding. You can DIY crochet or stitch words and images together that have to do with ever-lasting love and building a happy home and then frame it. They’ll appreciate the thoughtfulness and personal touch of a homemade gift.

Monogrammed Anything

One tradition in the south that is sure to be a hit if you go this route is to gift anything that’s monogrammed. For example, you can engrave and personalize jewelry, towels or a nice vase that they can put on display. Your bride and groom can be proud of wanting to showcase the family name in any way possible around the home. The bride and groom will love any gift that accomplishes this goal and looks nice in their home or that they can physically wear such as jewelry. 


You should now have a good idea of what to get a southern bride and groom for their wedding day. These gift options are not only traditional in nature but tasteful and classy as well. You can’t go wrong with one of these choices, so commit to an item and wrap it beautifully and you’ll have nothing to worry about.
