Summer wedding season is here! Chances are you’re headed to someone’s nuptials this summer. And chances are, your hip queer friends don’t want a stack of tacky “his and his” towels or a set or “her’s and her’s mugs. Here is a guide to summer wedding gifts for 2018 – for every couple, budget, and celebration.

For The Chefs

A total no-brainer gift for any couple? A cookbook! All about tacos! This cookbook, Tacopedia, is equal parts kitschy and practical. Plus, its available on Amazon for under $30 – come through Prime shipping!

For The Nostalgic

I’m in love with these Custom Floral Heart prints from Rifle Paper Co. They’re totally unique and will make a gorgeous addition to any home.

For The Photogs

Another classic for couples of any age, gender, and style is a photo frame for all those wedding pics. Keep is simple and minimalist in white marble – I like this sweet scalloped option from Urban Outfitters or this desk-sized version available on Amazon.

For The Writers

Every couple needs thank-you notes. I like these super cute animal postcards for an unfussy, laid-back vibe.

For The Couple Who Has Everything

No gift registry? No problem. Snag a gift certificate for their favorite local restaurant, or foot the bill for a weekend getaway. Airbnb gift cards work too.

For The Hot Couple

*Shameless plug alert* How about an SlutBox subscription? You can choose from one month, three months, six months, or a year of slutsentials! Help them start things off spicy, sexy and intersectional!

For The Practical

>Another budget-friendly, practical gift option – gift your friends with the dry ingredients (and dishware) to make your favorite recipe! Think gourmet dry pasta, a jar of sauce, a block of dry-aged cheese, and a bottle of wine. Or indulge a sweet tooth with a cute pie dish, a jar of pie filling, and a rolling pin.

For The Smallest Budget

Really broke? A thoughtful card is ultimately more meaningful than another bottle of artisanal olive oil or a set of sheets off their registry. Tell them what you love about them individually, and as a couple, and share your wishes for their union. They’ll keep that note forever.
