The Ultimate Made In Washington Wedding Gift Guide

Whether you’re DIYing with the support of your talented aunt or going all in on end-to-end coordination, planning a wedding in Washington State is a lot. 

It’s time, it’s energy, it’s communication, and it’s managing a whole lot of personalities. As your go-to resource for all things made in Washington (it’s in our name, after all!), it’s our goal to help you check a few things off of your (probably very long) list, starting with the gifts.

From the engagement party to the big day welcome bags, we have ideas to take you from the first champagne toast to showing gratitude to the last vendor packing up after the dance party. 

So, bookmark this page to keep checking gifts off as you go—our Ultimate Made In Washington Wedding Gift Guide may help you more than you know. 

Unique Gifts from Washington State

When you get wedding gifts from us, you’re also supporting our makers who are incredibly intentional about every product they create. All of them live in Washington and all of them love our state. It’s like what they say in one of the best rom-coms of all time, “If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love, actually, is all around.” 

Especially in Washington. 

Let’s get into it. 

Engagement Party Gifts

Engagement parties, should the happy couple choose to host one, typically kick off a season of celebration. They may want to enjoy this new phase of their life curled up together under cozy candlelight. Start with our candle collection, which has everything from elegant glass vessels to sweet little votives. 

For this event, consider something small: candies for two, a blanket or puzzle to share, or even a sparkling ornament to commemorate their milestone year.

Bridal Shower Gifts

The bridal shower is where women shower their bride-to-be with gifts for the home (usually). You’ll get all the oohs and ahhs when you present her with gilded-edge homewares from Pottery By Eleni. Whether she unwraps a platter, serving bowl, or tray, your future bride will be gushing at the hand-crafted beauty while also dreaming of all the delicious meals she’ll host.

If YOU are the bride, send your guests home with a succulent and the succulent terrariums you and your guests made at the party! 

Bachelor and Bachelorette Party Gifts

While the bride and groom will certainly receive gifts during their last hurrahs as singletons, our focus is on the members of their party. Enter group goodie bags! Consider adding Friendship Bracelets Kits that you can work on together, a pre-made Take Me To The Mountains Gift Box (especially if you’re headed somewhere local and mountainous like Leavenworth for your party), or mixers that will set you up for success while you create and host a competitive tasting of your own cocktails. If you’re feeling particularly spicy and adventurous, consider a hot sauce tasting from our Hot Sauce Flight.

Bridal Party Gifts

Weddings include a lot of planning, thinking, and list-making. Check bridal party gifts off your list with simple, pre-made sets like our Spa and Chocolate Gift Set, Peace & Pampering Gift Box, Essential Bitters Mini Box, or (for the friends and family members you sent a more-than-usual amount of frantic late-night or early-morning texts) the Coffee Fix Gift Set

For the moms, consider our Pamper Her Gift Box or the Gift Box for Mom. Send the big beer fans and IPA aficionados home with the Beer Enthusiast Gift Basket, which has Seattle pint glasses, a beer know-how guide, and a bag of nuts. Don’t be surprised if they dig into it before the big day begins!  

Consider Your Welcome Bag Handled

If you’re hosting your wedding in Washington, show your guests how much the Evergreen State means to you with A Trip to The Market Gift Basket waiting in their hotel room, packed to the brim with Washington-made goodies like smoked salmon, crackers, coffee, and tea. If you want an even stronger food focus in your welcome set, show them how thrilled you are they came to bless your nuptials with a Bite Of Washington Gift Box (also available in a Deluxe size!). 

Prefer to select your own? Design your own boxes and bags here and we’ll pack it all up for you! 

Wedding Gifts

Since you know the happy couple will likely get a ton of stuff, you also know they’ll appreciate your thoughtfulness via perishables, especially while unwrapping, writing thank you notes, and setting up their home together. Those are big calorie-burning activities! 

If they like seafood, gift them our Captain's Feast Gift Basket. If they’re more meat-forward, hit “add to cart” on our Salami Charcuterie Box

Thank You Gifts from Washington State for Your Vendors

In addition to any cash tips you hand out, your hard-working vendors will never deny a thoughtful sweet treat. Head back to our Chocolate, Candies, and Cookies section to have individually wrapped gifts on hand for them. 

If you love the taste of a perfect bite of chocolate after a long day, it’s likely they do, too. Our go-to? Seattle Chocolate’s Let's Celebrate Assorted Truffle Bag, which has Champagne, Pink Bubbly, Chocolate Cookie, and San Juan Sea Salt truffles—perfect for your occasion! 

Congratulations and Best Wishes from Washington

With all the events done and dusted, it’s time to put your feet up and rest easy knowing you’ve given the most thoughtful wedding gifts around. We’re grateful to be included in the celebration and can’t wait to celebrate every milestone moment with you. 

Don’t hesitate to show off those gifts on social media, either. We’re @madeinwashington_ on Instagram and on Facebook.
