One of the best parts about being married and starting a life together is building new traditions together. The holiday season ushers in many chances for newlyweds to try new things and recreate memories or childhood traditions with their spouse. You can be a part of this special time for the new couple by sending along one or two of our favorite gifts this holiday season. (Hint: you can’t go wrong with anything personalized for the newlywed in your life!)
For Their First Christmas
Decorating a first home for Christmas is one of the most special times in the first year of marriage. Gift the newlyweds with one of these special, personalized gifts they’re sure to enjoy in their home for years to come.
A newlywed’s first Christmas tree should be filled with love and remembrance of their first year together. Gift one of these gorgeous personalized ornaments, complete with their names and a wedding photo.
Make sure their stockings are hung by the fire with care this Christmas season by gifting one of these Mark & Graham quilted stockings. As a bonus, these stockings include free monogramming!
A funky tree skirt is the perfect gift for the newlyweds in your life. Consider adding an artificial tree or a gift card to the Christmas tree farm to help the newlyweds purchase their first tree together!
So many winter nights will be spent cuddled up by a fireplace drinking hot cocoa and the only thing missing is one of these fantastic tartan throw blankets from Mark & Graham. Have it personalized with the new couple’s monogram and you’ve got a beautiful gift for the holidays!
