Looking for unique engagement gifts and unusual wedding gifts? If you’re like us, you’re trying to find that one special gift that shows you care and reflects well on you. We love having the reputations for giving the most interesting and original gifts.
We all love the buzz and excitement that surrounds a unique and unexpected surprise and are thrilled to be known for finding the most interesting, unusual, and original present!
With that in mind, below are our best picks for unique gifts….
A Gift AS Unique As Their DNA
At the top of the list has to be these incredible art portraits. Why? Because they’re literally unique and based on the actual DNA of the recipients. Yes… It’s their lips, fingerprints, and DNA as modern art. How amazing is that?
DNA 11 offers 3 categories of portraits. The lips come as a single or with a his and hers overlap. The fingerprint portraits are only offered as a single but you can have a his and hers set made. Finally, the DNA portrait comes as a single or double (his/her sides).
These amazing art pieces will be cherished for years and are truly (and literally) one of the most unique gifts a couple could ever receive. The best part about them is that you (or they) can customize the whole thing, choose any color, have it framed or unframed, do it all online and have it shipped just about anywhere in the world.
Here’s an introduction from one of the company founders.
They really are amazing. Three of us recently chipped on one of the larger double canvases for a friend’s engagement. They went absolutely nuts for it and have since bought one as a gift for their friends.
Check out DNA 11 and give one of the most original and unique engagement gifts (or wedding gifts) ever!
Engagement Star Gift Idea
Another original idea and truly unique gift idea is naming a star after the couple. Yes, a star! Use their first names, their pet names for each other, or anything else that shows them how much you care. Simply head over to the Star Registry and buy a star and call it whatever you want.
One couple we know call each other ‘sweetie’ so that’s what their friends named the star they bought for them as an engagement present. It was a real hit!
This can be a really romantic and thoughtful gift that makes a good wedding present too. Just name the star Mr. & Mrs. Last Name and have their union commemorated in the heavens above.
Handcrafted & Unique Wooden Gifts
On our personalized gifts page we mention a friend who gives unique and personalized bowls for both engagements and weddings. They’re made by a local artisan in their area with the names of the couple and the date of their union baked right into the glaze.
Since we don’t all know a local artisan, we constantly scour the web looking for comparable gifts and artisans.
With that in mind we were so excited to find these exceptional unique handmade gifts from Artificer Wood Works. They create regular wine boxes, ceremony wine boxes, keepsake boxes, and more.
You can have one of their designs customized or design your own. They handcraft all their products, from start to finish, in their workshop because they believe that “Quality can’t be outsourced”.

The Unique Wooden Puzzle Guestbook Gift
Next, is a really sweet and unusual gift that’s perfect for both engagement parties and weddings.
It’s a jigsaw puzzle and guestbook all in one. It’s made out of wood with a smooth surface for guests to write on. The couple will be delighted at receiving such a personalized and fun memento of their engagement. The center piece can be customized to include their full names, initials, and date.
There are two ways to go with this unique gift idea if you want to use it at an engagement party.
First, you can pull the couple aside, ask them to open it and have everyone sign it during the party. Or, you can hide it away and secretly have it signed by all the guests (like a group birthday card). Once everyone has signed it, you simply put it back in your gift bag. When the couple opens it, they will be delighted by the gift and the sentiments and well-wishes written across it by all the guests who attended the engagement party.
The puzzle guestbook makes a great keepsake and can be glued together for a home decoration or kept as a fun puzzle they can enjoy for years to come.
Choosing the perfect present lets the couple know that their friends and family are excited for them. Unique engagement gifts simply add to the celebration.
