Think Outside the Big Box Store: Personalized Gift Ideas for Weddings

wedding gift description

Our Meaningful Handmade Gifts Stand Out on Their Big Day!

Someone’s getting hitched! And that means you’re shopping for the perfect memorable engagement or wedding gift.

Go for personalized gifts that the happy couple will love and use regularly in their home: charcuterie boards, whiskey glasses, and wooden stove top covers - commonly called noodle boards. You can find them all, handmade and monogrammed, at J Thomas Home, directly on our website.

We recommend…

Custom Charcuterie Boards

These snack servers are so hot right now! Hop on TikTok or Instagram Reels, and you’re sure to find instructional videos on how to assemble the grazing table treats to serve atop a charcuterie board. Think of them as Lunchables for adults!

Our custom charcuterie boards are made of solid, natural wood, with divided sections to contain marinades dripping from sun-dried tomatoes in oil or to keep your lemon-infused honey from touching your brie.

Gift the newlyweds a personalized charcuterie board that’s dinner-party sized if they love hosting and having gatherings in their home, or the smaller version that’s perfect for just the two of them to share.

Pair our custom charcuterie board with a bottle of wine, a jar of gourmet olives, cheese knives, or a set of our personalized whiskey glasses.

Personalized Whiskey Glasses

Yes, our whiskey glass sets in handcrafted boxes make a great gifting team with our charcuterie boards. We love them because each glass is large enough to hold ice - or not - and your loved one’s favorite bourbon, scotch, or whiskey.

We lovingly packaged each glass in a wooden box, bearing the monogram of your choice - the couple’s last initial.

And if you’re the one getting married, consider these personalized gifts for groomsmen, fathers, ushers, or other important people in your life.

Our personalized whiskey glasses with a bottle of delicious whiskey, a round ice cube mold, or a cocktail recipe book creates an extra-special gift.

Wooden Stove Top Covers

Straight from Nonna’s kitchen, wooden stove top covers, or noodle boards, got their start in Italy, when women would use them to gain more counter space as they prepared pasta and bread. While our wooden stove top covers aren’t for food prep, they do help free up work areas to accommodate stand mixers, cutting boards, rolling pins, and more.

And even when your favorite couple aren’t cooking up a storm, they can use a noodle board to disguise their stove top and give their kitchen a finished, tidy look.

Sneakily find out what their kitchen cabinets look like, so you can order a wooden stove top cover in a matching or coordinating finish. And if you aren’t sure what would look best, we’re always happy to help. Just send us a message before you place your order. Then, let us know the initial and wedding year, and we’ll be sure to apply it to the top of the noodle board, before sealing it with a clear satin top coat.

Gift our wooden stove top covers with bespoke oven mitts or trivets, a gourmet bottle of olive oil, or a book of family recipes.

Floating Wood Shelves

J Thomas Home got our start by building floating wood shelves in our garage. Today, they’re still our specialty, and we’re offering them in a variety of sizes, colors, and styles. We even have lighted shelves!

Although we don’t add monograms or other personalization to our shelves, they can be an ideal wedding gift. And because you choose shelf depth, width, and finish, they’re still quite customized.

We recommend our thick shelves or modern floating wall shelves for mass appeal. But if the love birds dig a more industrial chic vibe, our farmhouse pipe shelves are just the ticket.

Stage a set of shelves with a gorgeous photo frame, brass candlesticks, or an essential-oil scented soy candle for a truly unique couple’s gift idea.

Skip the Registry and Shop for Personalized Gifts from J Thomas Home

Many people will tell you to shop straight from the wedding registry. And normally, that’s brilliant advice. But if the couple’s registry is particularly small, or if they chose not to register at all, you can’t go wrong with a personalized gift from J Thomas Home.

Because no one else will have given anything like it, they will remember your gift for years to come - and become a treasured part of their home.

Shop our full line of personalized gifts on our website, and don’t forget to check out our wood shelves, too. If you have any questions about our handcrafted products, we’d love to chat with you.
