If 2022 were a phenomenon it would be two words...wedding boom. With pandemic-related cancellations in 2020 and most of 2021, industry experts are predicting over 2.5 million I-do's this year! (compared to 1.9 million in 2021 and just 1.2 million in 2020) With this wedding boom in full swing, this means wedding planners, photographers, and countless other wedding industry professionals are back to work and busier than ever. We've seen a huge uptick in the number of wedding planners and luxury wedding photographers looking to outsource their client onboarding gifts so we've pulled together the perfect lineup of gift boxes. These will not only reinforce to wedding industry professionals' clients why they made the right decision in booking them but they will also take the tedious task of gifting completely off of their shoulders, freeing them to do what it is that they do best. (Make sure you read all the way to the end because if branded gifts are the name of your game, we have great options for customization too!)
Gift #1: 'Happily Ever After'
There are few gifting moments in life that deserve to be celebrated quite as much as an engagement! Filled with luxe goodies like a tea towel, 'his' and 'her' coffee mugs, a gender neutral scented small batch candle, and gourmet cardamom crisp cookies, this gift box is the ultimate way to prep your couple as they kick off their 'forever after'. (This gift is also available in same sex versions - simply make the selection on the product page prior to adding to the cart!)
Gift #2: 'Engaged Life'
Our best selling 'Engaged Life' gift box is the perfect onboarding gift for wedding professionals! At an affordable price point while still making a statement, this is an easy one to work into your gifting routine without breaking the bank.
Gift #3: 'Newlywed Ready'
Bypass their wedding registry and opt for something far more unique and personal with our 'Newlywed Ready' gift box. Filled with gorgeous vow books to get them ready for their time at the alter, the iconic 5 Love Languages book for sparking conversation, little luxuries for their new home together including a gender neutral scented candle, celebratory Sugarfina champagne gummy candy, and a relaxing bath soak to combat the inevitable pre-wedding stress! Last but not least, the linen covered hat box is a gift in itself. It makes the perfect storage vessel that matches virtually any home decor style, perhaps even the right place to store wedding cards and other mementos long after the wedding weekend has come and gone.
Gift #4: 'Date Night'
A complete date night experience in a box! Filled with romantic surprises like champagne infused gummy candy, a scented glass candle, relaxing eucalyptus bath soak, and nourishing rose petal body oil all help to set a cozy ambiance. The biggest surprise is the couples version of Table Topics, wrapped in the sweetest heart motif fabric wrap. This gift box is not only perfect for engaged couples but also as a wedding anniversary gift, a wedding shower, or even something to gift on the day of the wedding.
Gift #5: 'Cozy Cocktail'
The perfect gender-neutral gift that both will adore! This decadent gift box offers all the items needed to craft the perfect Old Fashioned cocktail. They just simply add their favorite bourbon of choice and raise a beautiful glass to a lifetime of love. Not to mention, these glasses are the perfect addition to a bar cart or atop of any home bar. Cheers!
Gift #6: 'Cuddle Up'
Who doesn't love all the essentials for cozying up at home with your person? Complete with a full-size turkish blanket, a rosemary and mint scented candle with a gold wick snuffer, gourmet coffee, small batch vanilla sugar cubes, a set of really special copper-bottomed mugs, all tucked into a large pine box with an ivory satin ribbon as the perfect finishing touch.
Now let's make things even more interesting! If you're a wedding industry professional and you like the gifts you've just seen but want to be able to add your branding to the gifts, you're in luck! With our Add-Your-Own-Logo Program, you order gifts boxes from our online shop and we will remove our M&G branding from these gifts and add your branding instead. The program is flexible - we can ship out your gift boxes all at once upon ordering OR we allow you to order on-demand as you need them. Even more flexibility - you do not need to choose the same gift box each time. You can choose whichever gift box in our online shop makes the most sense for each of your couples since we know they're not all the same nor do they invest the same amount of money with you so perhaps you'd like to do a tiered approach based on price point. The lead times in our Add-Your-Own-Logo Program are much faster than our fully Custom Gift Design Service and the order minimums are significantly lower!

We're happy to hop on a complimentary discovery call and walk through exactly how the program works and how we think it could work best for you and your current workflow, no matter if you're currently gifting, looking to up-level your existing client gifting protocol, or you're not gifting at all and looking to get started! We are happy to help no matter what phase you're in in your business.
We hope you loved our lineup of gifts to send to your engaged couples! No matter which gift box you choose or whether they're branding with your logo or not, these are all great ways to strengthen your client relationships while also taking a huge weight off of your shoulders. You're already busy enough! If you prefer fully custom gift design, check out our full round up of Top Client Appreciation Gift of 2021.
