15 Wedding Gift Ideas for the Couple Whose Wedding was Impacted by COVID-19

We recently received a great question from one of our community members:

“What would be a thoughtful wedding gift for a friend and a co-worker who had to cancel their wedding?

I’m sure many of you know someone who had to postpone or cancel their wedding because of Coronavirus. And while we should send kind words or thoughtful messages to these couples, it might be nice to also send them a thoughtful (pre) wedding gift. With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of our favorite wedding gift ideas for couples impacted by COVID-19.

Update 6/28/2020: We’ve added an additional gift option curated specially for couples impacted by postponed couples! Check out #14.


Ceramic Pizza Stone


Get your friend a fancy black-top pizza stone to make it a special (quarantine) night in. This one is a steal at $40 and will turn an ordinary dinner into a romantic evening for two. Volare!


Zalto Universal Wine Glasses


What goes better with pizza than a delicious glass of vino? Throw in these adorable wine glasses to make it the perfect night.


Nordic Ware Honeycomb Pull-Apart Cake Pan


This one’s on the pricer end but well worth the tag given the high-end quality. Seriously, read the reviews and tell us you’re not convinced. You can make both cakes or bread in it – we suggest inserting a piece of chocolate in each honeycomb bread pocket as an extra treat. You’re welcome.


Reclaimed Wood Quote Box


Handcrafted from reclaimed beetle pine, these beautiful boxes can hold onto the couple’s most precious moments: first dates, travels and adventures, engagements and surprises. The carved quote on the top of the box makes it extra sentimental.


Nonstick Tava Pan for Rotis & Dosas


They say distance makes the heart grow fonder, and during quarantine, our hearts are growing fonder for our mom’s hot off the pan rotis. Help ease your friends homesickness a bit with this tava pan – there are glowing reviews for its ability to make flat, crispy dosas, but also doubles as a roti tava. If you’ve tried this product, we’re curious to see if you agree!


Faberware Classic Wood Rolling Pin


If your friends are anything like us, they’re probably missing their parent’s soft rotis steaming hot off the pan. Help them channel their inner desi and give them this beautiful rolling pin. With over a 1000 reviews (most of them 5 stars), it’s a pretty easy purchase to make.


Anthropologie Gold Accent Mugs


We’re drooling over these gold accent mugs, designed and handcrafted by the Anthropologie team. There are two color options, pink and slate, but we say, go crazy and get them both.


Ceramic Iced Coffee Tumbler


Want to help the wedding couple caffeinate more sustainably? Help them ditch the reusable cups and introduce this gorgeous ceramic tumbler. It comes with a tightly sealed bamboo lid and metal straw (#trending). And as businesses re-open, you can also ask the barista at your local coffee shop to fill it up for an eco-friendly habit worth keeping.


CauseBox Subscription


The current pandemic has given us the time and space to reflect our planet, the only beneficiary of this crisis. The need to keep our planet healthy has never felt more pressing and what better way to cheer up friends than with a CauseBox subscription. You’ll feel great making the purchase and they’ll feel great receiving it.


Electric Milk Frother


For the ultimate wedding gift, we would highly recommend this electric milk frother to help ease the sting of not seeing your favorite coffee barista. Want a flat white? Just push the button. A steamy hot latte? Push the magic button! You can also have it foamed cold if you’re into that sort of thing.


Rajathani Hand Painted Tea Kettle


These vibrant aluminum tea kettles are sure to cheer up the friend who was dreaming of a colorful traditional wedding. Each creation is hand painted by an artisan from Rajathan, India, with depictions ranging from Madhubani folk art to the Mughal arts. This thoughtful gift is now shipping free!


Terracotta Kullad Chai Cups


These natural, clay-made tea cups are perfect to accompany the above tea kettle! Bring your friends an authentic experience straight to their home. Best of all: these are eco-friendly and guaranteed to preserve the taste of your delicious chai.


Hot Peppers Growing Kit with Planter Box


Since we’re spending a lot of time indoors, what better than a gift that brings the outdoors in! This kit is perfect for the newbie and the novice gardener, and comes with everything needed to bring a little spice and greenery into the house.


2020 Postponed Wedding Gift by Lukh Studio

– Better days apron by The Cute Pista
– All Chai’d Up tea blend by The Chai Box
– Indian Monsoon by Scrumptious Wicks
