Try wrapping gifts with a rustic feel, go for deep jewel like shades and tie with a black ribbon, or incorporate elements of Victoriana wallpaper.

You could incorporate little sprigs of fir, as these smell wonderful, or similar elements of nature and enscribe a label with an elaborate font. 

36. Steampunk wedding gift ideas

Could be an engraved chopping board (engraved with their initials in a heart, just like how lovers engrave them in to trees to cement their love), a bouquet of flowers with a special and mysterious meaning and a hidden flower language book to decipher that meaning, a beautiful faux leather journal or series of notebooks, or a huge map of their area in Lord of The Rings style!

What are some unique gifts?

Some unique gifts are a stay at a haunted location, a homemade sleep quilt or weighted blanket, a unique welcome mat, a custom painting or piece of art, or a set of quirky scented candles! Personalised items often make the best surprise gifts as they are so unusual and unique! 

What are some thoughtful gifts?

Some thoughtful surprise gifts to try are a framed newspaper from the day they were born, or from the day you met them, a personalised item of clothing adorned with embroidery and iron on patches that adhere to their personality, a self care box, a monthly subscription box, or a book of flower meanings along with a specially crafted and chosen bouquet (with a hidden meaning!)
