Do they already have an established household?  If not they may need the basics more than that.  If they do have a house is it decorated?  Decor is a personal thing so I would think about if it matches their home and if they would use it.  Would hate for all your hard work to end up in the closet!

I think that’s cute. Especially if you’re giving them another gift, that’s a good idea.

I’m a big DIYer and I love to give handmade gifts for holidays (homemade ornaments, stuffed animals, Christmas countdown blocks etc).

I would say not to do a handmade frame though. My in laws gave me a nice frame that was personalized (it had a list on one side and a picture on the other), but it’s just not my style. When they visit I hang it up and it makes me feel bad every time I do this. Honestly the gift makes me feel like a bad person for not liking it and then I think of how much wasted trouble they went to. arghh.

A good handmade wedding gift is a “first christmas” ornament or something like that. No one minds gifts that only come out once a year.

I think its a really lovely idea.

I have seen other people make homemade gifts for people and they are so much more personalised to suit the couple – especially if you do it with their last name or last initial.  And it will be a nice reminder of the day if you do it beach themed.

I think it’s cute! I actually got a framed Calvin and Hobbes comic (we had it as a reading) and even though it’s technically not the way I would have decorated, because it was SOOO sweet of the giver and I love that it’s from the wedding. It’s actually my favorite wedding present. 

So…excuse the tangent…but yeah! Totally go for it!

I think it’s a cute idea! Maybe you can get your hands on a photo of the two of them to stick inside when you give it to them as well?
