Trying to find the perfect wedding gifts for the happy couple? In our opinion, the best wedding gifts are those that bring a little happiness into daily life. A personalized present allows you the creative freedom to give something unique. Create a gift that the couple will cherish, and celebrate your friendship with a heartfelt sign. Enamel signs are not traditional wedding gifts. But they are an ideal gift for couples who value good design and craftsmanship. At RAMSIGN, we design our signs with exceptional attention to detail and expert skill. This ensures that each one lasts a lifetime.
Stray from Traditional Wedding Gift Ideas:
Venturing ‘off list’ could be a potentially dangerous move. But, to go against the registry is a great way to give unusual wedding gifts with personality. Focus on their interests, their hobbies and their passions. Take these ideas and work on some creative wording to make your gift unique. Writing the perfect sign caption is not easy. You have to think carefully about the size of the sign and the character limit available. Imagine where the couple will place the sign. Is it inside, or outside? These factors make a big difference. Also, consider your use of colours and icons. Much like an experience, a personalised gift offers the bride and groom something that they can enjoy long after the honeymoon stage. Whether you will customise a house number sign, or create your lace onto the design, an enamel sign is a perfect canvas for expressing your love for the newlyweds.
Wedding Gifts for the Home
Help the couple start married life off on the right foot! Give them a sophisticated and elegant house number or house name plaque. You may think that enamel signs are unusual gifts for the bride and groom. But, first impressions count! Help them make a good one with wedding gifts that symbolise the beginning of a new life together. Our enamel house signs are completely weather-proof and resistant to graffiti. This offers a worry-free solution to home decor and helps keep maintenance minimal. And, if they ever move home, a custom house sign makes a great souvenir of their first married home together.
- Create a Mr & Mrs (Surname) sign to display their house number and newly married credentials
- Simply place the surname and house number on the sign to help the postman to identify the home
- Or, add a sweet phrase to the sign that will put a smile on their faces every time. 'Home is where the heart is' - use a classic phrase such as this alongside a house number.
Unforgettable Wedding Gifts
Turn the concept of a house sign on its head. Celebrate the new marital abode by creating a sign using the coordinates of the house.

Wedding Gifts for Couples

Unique Wedding Gifts
They got hitched! Now you are frantically hunting for wedding gift ideas for a couple. Celebrate the new surname of the ‘Mr & Mrs’ by creating a personalised nameplate that can be displayed with pride in the marital home. Cherish this pivotal moment in life and honour the wife’s or husband’s new surname, or the creation of a double-barrelled name. Use the sign to remind the couple of the happiness of their wedding day and the love that they share. Wedding gifts don't get more personal than this!
Best Wedding Gifts for the Newlyweds
Put your relationship knowledge to the test with these wedding gift ideas: Create a timeline sign, complete with milestone dates and cute icons to mark the major events in the life of the couple. The day they met, the first date, the proposal, the wedding day etc… The beauty of this idea is that each couple’s timeline is unique so it will be sure to touch the hearts of the newlyweds when they open it. When displayed at home, it also makes a creative icebreaker for guests, leading to some great conversation.
Wedding Day Gifts
When it comes to love, there is no logic. The heart wants what the heart wants, regardless of distance. If the bride and groom are both from different towns, cities or countries, why not celebrate this with a sign? Bespoke signs are ideal presents for newlyweds. Choose their favourite colour (or colours of the country flag), add a trim and choose an iconic typeface. Then, design a sign with the couple’s names and the distance each one had to travel to meet each other. In the middle of the names, add a house symbol and have arrows joining each name to the house.
Good Wedding Gifts for the Wedding Party
Of course, there are many key figures that make up the wedding party. The Mother and Father of the bride, the Bridesmaids, the Best Man and if the couple have kids, they too will play an essential role on the big day. Celebrate their participation and support for the happy couple with funny wedding gifts. Here is a selection of heartfelt gift ideas for the key players on the wedding day.
Great Wedding Gifts for the Mother and Father of the Bride (or Groom)
The parents are the unsung heroes of the big day. In most cases, they have lived through bridezilla meltdowns, helped organise all the family members, calmed the pre-wedding nerves and been a strong shoulder to lean on. They deserve some recognition for their hard work and unfailing support. Customise an enamel sign and give thanks to your loved ones. Add a sentimental quote, meaningful song lyric or favourite family saying. Allow them to feel part of your big day and remind them of their continued importance in your life. Mother of the bride gift ideas include:
- Today a bride, tomorrow a wife, forever your little girl! Add this phrase to a sign to remind your mother how much you care.
- Let the groom give back with a sign saying: Thank you for raising the woman of my dreams, love (groom's name)
- Mothers and Daughters never truly part, maybe in distance but never in heart. This is perfect for families that live far away from one another.
Wedding Gifts for Friends - Bridesmaids
Friends or family? The bond shared between a bride and her bridesmaids is unforgettable. These women are essential in ensuring the bride makes it to the wedding on time. Heartfelt gifts for a wedding are a wonderful way to show gratitude. Design a sign for your bridesmaids to remind them of your big day. Add your favourite saying to the sign and finish it off with a hand stencilled icon. Or, offer them a proposal they cannot refuse! Create a custom bridesmaid box: personalise a nameplate with the name of each bridesmaid. Next, attach this to a wooden box. Inside the box lies a small gift and a note asking them to be your bridesmaid. This gift shares the joy and excitement of the upcoming wedding and no one will be able to say no to such a thoughtful and beautiful offer.
Wedding Day Gifts for the Best Man
What is the definition of the best man? He is the one who gets the groom to the wedding on time, calms his pre-wedding nerves and then gives a heart-warming speech. For the groom, the best man is the most important person at the wedding, aside from his bride, of course! Treat him to a funny sign as thanks for all his hard work. Perhaps he has a penchant for grilling or enjoys sipping beer in the garden with his mates. Play on his passions and surprise him with a personalised sign for his home. It will remind him of all the happy moments shared between you and all the adventures that await. Our favourite wedding presents for a best friend are:
- (Best man's name)'s Beer Garden is ideal for those summertime get-togethers in the back garden
- (Best man's name)'s Man Cave. Because every man needs a man cave
- I couldn't have done it without you. Because really?! He is the most important man in the groom's life!
Gifts for a Wedding - Something Blue…
The famous saying ‘Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue’ is something many brides include in their wedding planning. However, gifting the bride something to complete this time-honoured tradition is often overlooked. We have used the deep ultramarine blue of the 19th Century European enamel street signs to create our Metropolitan collection. And, did you know? Our Aaholm signs are small enough to be used as house numbers or more creatively as keyrings or charms. With this in mind, create a blue token that the bride can carry with her on her special day. Combine the blue with a neat white trim and a short word, perhaps her partner’s name. After the wedding, the sign could be attached to the keys to their new home together. This is a great idea for a ‘to my best friend on her wedding day’ gift!
Why Choose Enamel Signs for Your Wedding Present?
Enamel is considered one of the most durable materials for signage. And, what's more, the colour offering is very versatile. This is perfect for creating a creative and personalised design. Enamel signs are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use and if cared for correctly, they will last a lifetime. Their wipe-clean simple maintenance means that despite extreme weather conditions or graffiti, the sign will still remain as good as new. But as well as being aesthetically pleasing, these signs also have a deep-rooted history. Did you know:
- Enamel signs have been used in Europe since the 1800s.
- During this time, enamel signage was mainly used for advertising signs in addition to street signage.
- The iconic deep blue signs with their white fonts and trims were prevalent during this time.
- Our Metropolitan collection is inspired by the original European street signs.
- The heritage of enamel signs is something we incorporate into our design process, combined with our passion for Scandinavian design.
Keep Wedding Presents Simple…
Overall, while enamel signs may not feature on the wedding registry, they are certainly a unique gift idea. These memorable gifts are lovingly hand stencilled by master craftsmen using typefaces that are authentic to the golden age of enamel sign production. This iconic aesthetic adds a classic touch to the interior decor of the property and creates a timeless keepsake that can be treasured and adored for years to come.
By giving an enamel sign to your loved ones you are giving a gift that is designed to last a lifetime. It is the perfect addition to their home and a personal reminder of the love shared not only between the couple but also between you and the couple. It is a loving reminder of happy times gone by and the joyous moments that lie ahead. Create your own or let the happy couple design their own by giving them a gift card.
