For a gift the happy couple can use each anniversary to remember their happy wedding day, a pair of personalised champagne flutes can really hit the mark. Leave time for engraving as that may add a few days to the delivery time. This set from Getting Personal is on sale right now for £33.99. Each glass is set with three Swarovski® diamantés making them extra special.

2. Personalized Wood Chopping Board: On Sale for £25

While there are loads of personalised chopping boards available at Not on the High Street, we particularly like this one for 3 reasons. First, it's on sale for £25. Second, the engraving is small and in the corner (so it won't collect as much food debris as a centered engraving). Third, the design is really cute—reminds of us a young couple, first loves, who've carved their initials into a tree.

3. Le Creuset Ramekins: On Sale Get 6 for £30

A Le Creuset baker or set of ramekins can make a beautiful wedding gift, as the brand is known for products that are both high in quality and beauty. Shopping during the sale can secure you up to 40% off, making some Le Creuset products affordable even for those on a budget. For example, 50% off stoneware stackable ramekins in their summer sale means you can pick up a half dozen for £30. Or their large rectangular stoneware baking dish is marked down to £25 from £50.

4. Nesting Heart Bowls: £30

Sweet heart photo frame for the newly-married couple

A frame is a classic wedding gift, and a useful one, too. The new couple will surely have plenty of photos from their wedding and new life together, which they'll want to display around their home as an expression of their love. John Lewis has a number of options, including a sweet pewter frame with hearts floating across like balloons that's made in England or this simple silver-plated photo frame box for holding memorabilia from the wedding.

7. Date Night Cards: £30

52 date ideas for newlyweds

Romance can fall aside as the newlyweds settle into married life. For a non-traditional gift to help keep the spark alive you might like to give this set of 52 date night cards. We thought this was the nicest set we've seen, as each date idea is nestled into it's own colourful envelope and the set comes in a box you can personalise. Plus there are a few blank cards so the couple can include some of their own ideas, such as replicating their first date.

8. Pasta Making Kit: £35

If one of the newlyweds is notorious for placing coasters under drinks, they might like a set of four coasters by Sky Siouki that are both functional, sturdy (they're made of stone) and works of art.
