Love, Self

Whether you are getting wedding gifts for the bride, the groom, or are a guest trying to decide on the best wedding gifts for the happy couple, there are a lot of directions and thought put into the process.

"An experience is something unique, and a gift that will keep giving as a memory," says Brett Galley, founder and Director of Special Events at Hollywood Pop Gallery. "A few examples include a cooking class, a sunset champagne sail, or maybe even as wild as some salsa lessons. Alternatively, arrange for a chef to go to the newlyweds' home and cook a romantic dinner for them at the privacy of their own home."

According to Galley, an experience not only allows the couple to carve out time for each other and bond as husband and wife, but it also creates a memory they will cherish forever. 

Experiential wedding gift ideas are always a fun and unique way to celebrate their love. But when you're looking for something special and meaningful to put in a box and present to the couple, here are some great gift ideas.
