Weddings are a time of celebration and gift giving but for people with small spaces or who don’t like having too much stuff, this tradition can feel daunting to some couples. Here’s some great minimalist wedding gifts for those couples who prefer to keep things simple.

Traditionally wedding gifts were meant to start the happy couple in their new home. It was typical for people to get married after living with their parents, so the post wedding house was the first home for the bride and groom.

Now we are moving out and living alone before getting married, and often getting married later in life. That means all those traditional gifts, like new towels, are no longer practical for many newlyweds.

The Best Wedding Gifts for a Minimalist Couple

These wedding gifts were chosen for a few different types of minimalist couples:

First, there are multi-purpose and space saving options, these are ideal for folks with small living spaces or apartments, but who still need some of those classic wedding gifts like a toaster. Second, we have gifts for someone who already has everything they need and doesn’t want any more clutter in their home.

Personalized Cutting Board

This gorgeous cutting board does double duty as both a convenient addition to the couple’s kitchen and fancy serving tray for date night or entertaining. Something I really like about the personalization is it’s their first names and wedding date making it a good option for a same-sex couple or woman who isn’t taking her husband’s last name.

Glass bowls are a must have in any kitchen, especially ones with lids. This set isn’t just a practical wedding gift, it’s also a great space-saving option too. All the bowls nest together with the lids on top for one convenient (and small) bundle on the shelf.

Audible Subscription

This is kind of a unique gift for a couple who likes to share literature. With audiobooks, they can listen together in the car or at home while taking care of chores. Since everything is digital, there’s no physical clutter to worry about too.

These vacuums are fantastic, especially if you have a small space.


When all else fails you really can’t go wrong with cash. If you’re going to give it at a wedding, add it to the card or give it inside a nice leather envelope like this one.

Of course, you don’t need to be a minimalist to enjoy these wedding gifts; they’re just great ideas!
