When you’re attending a wedding, it can be hard figuring out what to give as a gift. Particularly if there isn’t a registry, you can tie your mind into knots trying to think of a perfect, budget-friendly wedding present.

While a gift needs to be thoughtful, you don’t have to worry about taking out a loan every time you need to buy a wedding gift. What matters most is that your gift comes from the heart. To help you brainstorm ideas, we’ve outlined our favorite wedding gifts on a budget below.

Wedding Gifts Under $20

While you might not be able to afford anything too extravagant, your gift will still pack a punch so long as it’s heartfelt. Below are some affordable gifts perfect for any wedding.

  • Kitchen towel set: Kitchen towels, when personalized, can make a fantastic and useful gift for newlyweds. To make them extra special, get the towels customized with the initials of the new couple. Approximate price: $15

  • Photo frame: This gift works particularly well if you have photos of the happy couple to frame beforehand. It can make for a sentimental gesture that takes them on a trip down memory lane. Approximate price: $18

  • Personalized coffee mug: A personalized set of coffee mugs featuring a photo of the couple can make for a great gift that they’ll use regularly. Every time they get a fresh cup of joe, they’ll be reminded of their walk down the aisle. Approximate price: $10

To accompany any of the above gifts, a congratulations card makes for a great addition. Print out the card below and personalize it to wish the new married couple the best of luck on this new chapter in their lives.

Wedding Gifts From $20–$30

While it’s always great to personalize your gifts, it’s an added bonus when the present is useful. Every time the couple uses your gift, they’re likely to remember their thoughtful friend. Below are some useful gift ideas that range from $20–$30 apiece. 

  • Couples aprons: If the newlywed couple loves to cook, aprons could make for a perfect gift. Approximate price: $30

  • Throw blanket: Priced at about $30, throw blankets are perfect for movie nights on the couch. It’s the type of gift that couples don’t realize they need until they have one. Approximate price: $30

  • Personalized puzzle: You can use a picture to make a personalized puzzle that the newlyweds can solve with one another. Feel free to use a picture of the newlyweds themselves or something else that’s meaningful to them. Approximate price: $25

For more personalization, add one of our wedding gift tags to your gift. Write a heartfelt message on the back of the gift tag of your choice. The newlyweds will appreciate the extra effort. 


Choosing the right wedding gift can be stressful. When you put the proper thought into your wedding gift, however, it doesn’t have to break the bank. Remember, it’s the thought that counts most.
