Special wedding gifts for daughters

Updated November 21, 2016

One of the most memorable days in your daughter's life is her wedding day. So when she is getting married, you'll want to give her a gift that has meaning, one that will be remembered along with this special day in her life. Many things make good gifts for a daughter on her wedding day. Some families choose to give jewellery or traditional gifts that are passed down from one generation to another, while other families choose to start their own traditions and make their own memories.


In some families it is tradition to pass down jewellery from generation to generation---from mother to daughter and down the line. Usually the jewellery is something like earrings, a necklace or sometimes even the ring used in the ceremony. Whatever piece of jewellery it is, it will hold special meaning for years to come. If jewellery has not been a traditional gift in your family, it is still the perfect gift to give a daughter on her wedding day. Pick out something simple, such as diamond or pearl earrings, a diamond bracelet or a solitaire diamond necklace. This serves as a parting gift, signifying that her life is changing and is even more special because you are supporting her in this life change. Not only will she wear your special wedding gift on her wedding day, but she will cherish it all the years of her life.

Heartfelt Thoughts

Write your daughter a letter or a poem telling her how you feel about her, how much you love her and how happy you are for her. Make it heartfelt and unique to your relationship with your daughter. This is something that she can always hold onto and read over during trying times.

Photo Album

You can also choose to create a photo album or scrapbook to present to your daughter on her wedding day. A photo album can detail her life with you and signify leaving behind that life and beginning a new life with your blessing. With a photo album she will be able to carry the memories of her childhood into her new life.
