You simply can't go wrong with fine jewelry as a wedding gift to your daughter. This necklace features two interlocking loops—one made from sterling silver and the other gold vermeil—to beautifully represent the bond between a parent and child, as well as the union of two families. If she doesn't have her accessories picked out for her rehearsal dinner outfit, morning-after brunch or even the wedding itself, she'll definitely reach for this symbolic necklace.

Why not decorate your daughter's home with meaningful, handmade artwork that nods to her own growing family? This piece of steel is beautifully welded to look like two trees growing together—a fitting metaphor for your daughter's union—with a budding apple (noted by the maker as a symbol that the couple picked each other). Add the newlyweds' names and marriage date to complete this one-of-a-kind wedding gift for your daughter.

5. Gold Heart Earrings

Each month, they'll receive everything they need for a fun and interactive activity they can do together, like making a memory box or learning a new skill.

One thing that's often forgotten on the wedding day? A place for the bride to store her phone, lipstick and other important items. Save the day with this personalized leather envelope clutch.

Wine glasses are always a good wedding gift idea, especially if your daughter and her partner like to unwind over a bottle of vino. Personally, we're obsessed with these white wine glasses (which are also good for celebratory champagne) etched with the happy couple's names, initials or shared surname. Grab a pair and team them with a bottle of wine (or bubbly) so they can raise a toast right away.

If your daughter has a spiritual side, this unique wall art is a lovely way to wish her well in the next chapter of her life. It features a sparkling pink crystal at the center, surrounded by a hand-drawn mandala and a marriage blessing that reads: "May your union be blessed as unmoving and eternal. May your lives flourish, your hearts steep in unconditional love and your souls be ever compassionate to one another." Trust us, she'll feel truly touched when she unwraps this thoughtful gift.

This one is made from cotton trimmed with a pretty lace border for a thoughtful keepsake your daughter will always treasure. Be warned: She may not be able to finish reading it before she puts it to work mopping up her (happy) tears.

A special perfume will bring back memories of the wedding day whenever your daughter spritzes it, thanks to the association between scent and memory. If you can afford to splurge, this luxe fragrance from Bond No. 9 will make her feel like a million bucks. With notes of pear, violet, rose and vanilla, it comes in an heirloom-worthy bottle that also doubles up as her something blue. (Clever, we know!).

This wedding gift for your daughter may be on her registry already—which is just further proof that it's an excellent idea. The weighted blanket helps stimulate serotonin (the happy hormone) and reduce cortisol (the stress hormone), so your daughter will be nice and relaxed the morning of the big day. We actually recommend gifting it to her the night before to help increase melatonin for a more peaceful night's sleep.

24. Monogrammed Luggage Tag

Give your daughter this stylish luggage tag for a personalized and practical wedding gift she can use for any trip on her bucket list. It's an especially thoughtful gift if she's just changed her name and needs travel accessories with her new monogram. Bonus: This faux-leather tag is so affordable, you can easily give one to her partner too.

Personalize this timepiece with the newlyweds' names, their wedding date and—surprise—their first dance song. (Yep, in addition to keeping the time, this unique clock plays music!). How cool is that?
