Should guests buy a gift for a couple who are having a vow renewal?

Assuming you have been invited to and are attending the vow renewal ceremony or reception party a congratulatory card is the most that many couples renewing their vows would expect.

Having been married for a number of years it is fair to assume they’re not in need of items for a new home or help getting started as a married couple.

However that won’t be the case for all.

When to buy a vow renewal gift?

Some couples renewing their vows are doing so because they weren’t able to have the wedding they dreamed of the first time around, perhaps due to circumstances or fiances. So for them, this is THE wedding they wanted. In which case, whether they have their home set up or not, a commemorative gift to celebrate the occasion would be very much appreciated.

If you don’t know them well enough to choose something personal, you can opt simply for a greeting card, a monetary gift card or gift basket. You really can’t go wrong with a gift card for a major store as a gift for any occasion.

It is also usual to bring a mile-stone related gift to a wedding Anniversary party and as many vow renewal ceremonies are held on the same date as the wedding, a wedding anniversary gift from those in attendance is the norm.

See Wedding Anniversary for gift ideas. And of course if a couple is renewing their vows on their anniversary then a vow renewal anniversary gift is welcome.

Below is a small selection of vow-renewal cards and gifts you can personalize. These have a text field for you to (if you’re the couple making the vows) to write in your vows or a quote from them. Clicking on any image will take you to the store where you can view a wider selection of vow renewal gifts. There is also a vow renewal gift selection featured that is available via Amazon. When clicking on the images you should be taken to the store and currency for your country of residence.

  1. I’m definitely a gift card giver, only because I personally like personal, sentimental gifts. If Someone doesn’t know me well enough to buy me a sentimental gift, I do love to be able to go out and get something I will love.
