Are Wedding Presents Expected from Employers?

The expectation of a wedding gift can vary depending on your relationship with the employee. While not all employees anticipate a company wedding gift, giving one can be a wonderful way to express your gratitude and support, particularly for long-standing team members. It’s a gesture that underscores your appreciation and fosters a positive workplace culture.

Should I Give a Gift or Money to an Employee Getting Married?

The choice between a physical gift and money often hinges on the closeness of your relationship with the employee. If you share a strong bond, consider personal gifts like high-quality alcohol, gourmet food hampers, or unique household items. For more formal relationships, a gift card or thoughtful monetary gift, such as a honeymoon contribution, can be both considerate and practical.

Personalised gifts are a great way to create lasting memories. Think beyond company branding and focus on items that celebrate the couple, such as custom artwork, engraved wine glasses, or bespoke photo frames.

Wellbeing Gifts and Vouchers

Weddings can be stressful, so consider gifting a voucher for a spa day or pampering session or a wellness gift hamper. It’s a thoughtful way to help the couple unwind and enjoy some relaxation after their big day.
