Your friends are getting married! Brilliant! And now the day is creeping slowly closer in the calendar and you need to get a gift. A fab gift, a wedding gift worthy of your fabulous friends.
The Betsy Benn take on wedding gifts for your mates is that you can go one of two ways:
We've got presents for the home and personalisable pieces that will become post-wedding talking points. There is no hard and fast rule on how much you should spend but there should be something here for individual and joint budgets big and small.
So here’s our round-up of the best prints to give and who they work for.
The Cool but Sentimental Urbanites
The fashion for art on walls has evolved into displaying statements of your life story like never before! And these two prints are classically simple, yet artistically beautiful enough to stand the test of time. The best part is that you don’t need to know all the intricate details of their story together, as these prints commemorate the date and place of the wedding – all information that you can get from the invitation. Personalisation at its most simple is quite often the best!
For the nostalgically modern, we recommend the Bus Blind Wedding Date Print. Reminiscent of a Routemaster bus blind it’s both retro and current – a quirk of a design that is truly classic. A simple way to show the date, time and place of the wedding as well as the couples names.
For those with a love for clean lines and possibly a Scandi interest in design and colours, we have the Personalised Coordinates Print. Simple blocks of colour and clean unfussy fonts show the coordinates of a special place with two additional lines of text. Maybe the date and place they met, but this works just as well with the wedding place and date.
The Music Lovers
Maybe your friendship group all used to go out to the same pubs and clubs together and had a bunch of tracks that would be guaranteed to get you all up and dancing! Or you know the songs that they love the most or could find out by asking the person organising the wedding music for a set list. However you do it, a personalised music print will be just the ticket to celebrate the happy union.
We have the Retro Cassette Playlist for up to 16 tracks from a playlist.
The single vinyl or cassette prints for that one special song, perhaps their first dance! Or a song lyrics quote print, to pick out a beautiful line in a special song that seems so fitting to their relationship.
The Travel Lovers
If the wedding itself is overseas then you can pretty much guarantee it will be near a coastline of some description. If the wedding isn’t, then the honeymoon probably is. A sure fire unique win of a gift can be found in our range of coastline products. From the beautifully simple Coastline Line Drawing, to the unique Wooden and Acrylic Coastline Clocks and Wall Hangings (see this blog post for more details) a coastal themed gift will be a gorgeous and heartfelt reminder of their big day. Further personalise with some text details for a truly meaningful gift.
For the city dwellers and honeymooners, how about one of our bespoke abstract maps. Available for literally any location in the world these designs take the humble map to a new level of artwork. And each can be personalised with any two lines of text such as the place name and maybe the date of the wedding.
So with our range of beautiful personalised prints, you can find something completely bespoke for the happy couple and win "most loved gift".

The traditional wall planner needed some Betsy magic that's for sure. Here's how our wall planner life used to play out, tell me if this resonates. You buy what you think is a BIG wall planner. It's been beautifully designed too, so it looks great on the wall. Then you write ONE THING on a day and, *poof*, no more space for anything else on that day.
Does that sound familiar?
