wedding gifts

Choosing a thoughtful wedding gift can be like running through a maze of ice cream makers and decorative napkin rings. Should your present be whimsical or practical? Will it be used once, or will it last? Whether you’re sticking to a registry or thinking outside the box, a personal gift demonstrates that you put thought into the couple and the world they want to build together. Choosing an ecologically conscious gift, then, is the perfect way to help a sustainably minded pair lighten their footprint.

Here are some ideas for presents that prioritize environmental health, reusability, and/or sustainable lifestyles—feel free to add your suggestions in the comments!
