From being your partner in crime to your built-in bodyguard and occasionally a pain in the butt, your brother boasts an array of titles. As he transitions into the role of husband, it's the perfect opportunity to choose a wedding gift that thanks him for all of his love, loyalty and laughter. How do you pick a wedding gift for your brother that encapsulates all these sentiments though?

We've got just the inspiration you need to find a thoughtful wedding gift for your brother and future in-law. If you're looking for something practical to help stock their newlywed home or stoke their shared hobbies, check out their registry first. The wish list is designed to cater to everyone—including close family members who know the couple well—and ensures you select a gift the couple truly wants and will use. When it comes to choosing a sentimental wedding gift for your brother, though, feel free to venture off the registry—as he likely didn't include a framed childhood memory on his wishlist.

Keep reading to explore our top wedding gift ideas for your brother and you'll be sure to earn the title of best sibling.
