With COVID-19 restrictions loosening up and the wedding season almost at the front door, couples are rushing to plan their special day. On top of this, weddings that were postponed will now be able to happen.

Scouting for last-minute gifts? Thankbox is here to provide a list of thoughtful wedding gift ideas that are practical and easy to purchase, and get shipped. This way, you can save time and have the items arrive at your house.

Thankbox is a no-brainer

Price: $5.99 - $9.99 (Plus funds that you want to add)

Starting off the list we have to mention Thankbox. Because, what other gift is better than money? Well, you guessed it! A personalised card with money. This is by far the best gift idea in our opinion.

Thankbox allows the users to create a personalised card. The good part is, you can create a card online and send it to multiple people to add their messages. They can also add gifs, videos, or pictures to add an extra special touch.

On top of this, everyone can contribute money as a collective. You can then send the card to the wedding couple.

Sending the card is extremely easy. Once you send the card, they will receive a link to the card and funds in their inbox.

Once they retrieve it, not only will they be overjoyed by messages from friends and families, but they will also have money that they can redeem from a list of retailers.

With Thankbox, they can have a card that they can’t lose. They can also spend the money on what they actually want to buy.



Price: Whatever you want to give

Cash is king, this is true, especially at weddings. If you’re a practical person and don’t want to waste any time, or if you are looking for wedding gift ideas for couples that have everything—this gift will put a smile on anyone’s face.
