  • 7828

No one can deny that 2020 has been a difficult year—one where cancelling grand plans and living in limbo has become the norm. Engaged couples know this all too well. When the pandemic hit in March, the wedding industry was impacted almost immediately. Now, with strict restrictions in many countries dictating how and when people can gather, couples around the world have been forced to postpone or cancel their ceremonies.

While these couples are dealing with the stress of rescheduling plans that in some cases have been a year in the making, at least they have their health…which often means they feel bad about feeling bad—because in the grand scheme of things, it could be worse. With all of this in mind, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite wedding presents for the couple who has had to pivot their plans. Whether they’re waiting it out or going the micro-wedding route, these gifts will convey that you get that this isn’t easy, you’re thinking of them, and you want them to have a festive holiday season and a happily ever after, no matter when the “I dos” actually happen.
