Wedding Hamper Ideas

Hi guys,

Not sure if this belongs on this board or the wedding one :confused:

My friend is getting married in three weeks and I want to put a hamper in her room for them to find when they go to bed.

However, I'm a bit stuck for ideas of what to put in!

So far, I thought of a guidebook for their honeymoon destination, some chocolates, half a bottle of champagne....and now I'm stuck!

I did wonder about posh toiletries (maybe Molton Brown) but...
1) I don't want to spend loads as I will also be getting them a present off their gift list (want to spend £10-£15 max on the whole hamper and I doubt I can get Molton Brown toiletries that cheap).
2) They're spending their first night in the hotel that they're getting married in, so will have posh toiletries in their room (though I guess they can save them for when they get back from honeymoon.

Just while I've been typing this, I did just think I could perhaps also find a couple of cheap-but-nice champagne flutes to put in (if I find a set of 4, I can split them and do another hamper for another friend that's getting married!).

Not sure what else I can put in though.

Any ideas?



  • what a lovely friend you are!

    Maybe a nice photo frame/album - not sure if someone already planned a book for the guests to write in at the reception - we really loved reading ours the next day

    Or one of those silver tubes to keep the wedding certificate in and some nice choccies and bubbly

  • I did this for my friends wedding night. I bought mini bottle of champagne a couple of cheap champagne glasses (plastic ones fron Tesco) I went to Ann Summers and bought things like body paint, condoms edible undies and other saucy stuff. I put in the cd single of their first dance, belgium chocs, massage oil, rose petals, candles, headache tablets (for the morning after) do not disturb sign for the door. I think that was about it...they absolutly loved it!

    A great thing to do is take photos at the early part of the day (the ceremony) then either yourself - or get a frined/family memeber - to dash off and get the photos developed in an hou. They'll be ready to look at my the time you have the meal! Shove them in a small photo album and leave that in the hamper.

    It'll be some time before they'll see the official photos or the family ones, and it's so nice for them to be ablke to look at the day so soon afetrwards.

    Getting married next month and struggling for ideas what to get my future wife as a wedding gift. I thought a hamper full of little things would be nice. Ideas for contents so far include The Wedding Day Yankee Candle, some things from Lush...

    Any other ideas?

    In one I did I bought little wooden initials of their names and tied them together.
