These wedding gift ideas for 2024 are either current trends when it comes to the most wished and registered for items, or traditional gifts that reflect the current trending styles that people are choosing for their homes. Whether you’re looking for inspiration to add to your own registry or shopping for a couple, there’s plenty of great ideas here for a variety of couples and budgets.

All these gifts were chosen specifically for the current generation of couples getting married. We know that it’s not always a bride and groom; that’s why there are plenty of unisex and gender neutral options here.

Even when the pair is a man and woman, modern couples aren’t always keeping up with traditions. For example, it’s becoming more common for women to keep their last names. Weddings are also less about brides now; just like they’re doing more at home, grooms want in on the planning and gift options too.

Trending Wedding Gift Ideas for the 2024 Wedding Season

Weddings in 2024 will continue to see a lot of boho elements trending, especially with earth tones and breezy coastal themes. Expect more muted colors and earth tones to dominate wedding season this year.

Weddings are a great way to complete household essentials a couple has otherwise been putting off, or to give a couple something they didn’t realize they needed.
