Hers and Hers Sinks

Finding a wedding card for two brides can be difficult in stores. Opt for a hand-drawn and custom-printed design from DIYers and makers online, like this one from Lost Marbles Co.

Hedgehog Grooms

We just love the adorable hedgehog grooms (in top hats!) on this wedding card from Compatible Cards. The London-based company designs greeting cards exclusively for LGBT couples and was funded by the Prince's Trust charity. And, yes, they have hedgehog brides, too.

Romantic Mug Set

There are Mr. and Mrs. sets for just about anything in big box stores but it can be hard to find sets for same-sex couples. You can find custom, handmade mug sets from online makers like Ink Letter Love.

Hers and Hers Decorative Pillows

Gift the new couple extra pillows that remind them of their special day, like these throw pillows from Pillow Art Designs.

Sentimental Bracelets

These "missing piece" bracelets from Jane R Jewelry are a great shower or bachelor/bachelorette party gift. The beads remind the couple that their better half is always with them.

Cheeky Wine Glasses

We love these stemless wine glasses from Kris Gets Crafty. Include a note with your gift that lets the grooms decide who gets which glass! 

Or Beer Glasses

This set is a perfect bachelor party gift for grooms who love beer. We love these Weizen glasses from Tipsy Home.

Personalized Burlap Pillow

A decorative pillow makes a great addition to a mudroom or entryway bench, welcoming guests to the new couple's home. Find this one from Etsy shop Urban Pebble Trailz.

Couple Bracelets

These handmade leather bracelets from Risky Beads are a great pre-wedding or shower gift. 

Luggage Tags

Outfit the new couple with matching passport covers and luggage tags for their honeymoon. These sets from A Box Full of Matches make great wedding shower gifts.

Parent Mug Set

Many same-sex couples who married before the 2015 Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality are now throwing renewal parties to honor their marriage and make it legal. For these couples, gift something that celebrates their history and family. We love these ceramic, same-sex parent mug sets from Sam's Muddy Mom Pottery.

Custom Ornaments

Give the couple an ornament to celebrate their first Christmas or other holiday together as a married couple. It's something they'll enjoy unwrapping year after year. We love the rustic ornament from Marked Moments and the punched metal from White Lilie Designs.

Double-Duty Gift Tags

You could also use an ornament as a gift tag for a larger wedding present. We love the hand-carved pottery from Heart Stone Gallery.

Matching Pillowcases

Give the new couple a fun set of matching pillowcases to celebrate their union. Send to their honeymoon hotel ahead of time for a surprise when they walk into the room! We love these sets from Wystar Wedding Shop.

Gifts That Give Back

Honor a couple's bravery and strength by gifting an item that benefits an LGBT charity. One Hope Wine carries a sparkling wine (in a rainbow glitter bottle!) that benefits The Trevor Project, a group focused on suicide prevention for LGBT youth. Four bottles fund one hour of counseling services.

Gifts for the Kids, Too

Not having equal marriage rights until last year didn't stop LGBT couples from having families. If you're invited to a marriage renewal party for same-sex couples making their union legal, bring an extra gift for the kids. It's an important celebration for them, too. We love these mom and dad squared tees from Imagine Mint.
