2. Instant Camera
Gifting an instant camera can be very useful for newly married couples. They can instantly capture the precious moments of their life together. Instant cameras are trendy yet portable and can make your friends remember you forever. An instant camera would be a perfect gift for them to take along with them on their honeymoon.

3. Cutlery Set
For couples who will be settling down independently at a new place, gifts such as a finely crafted cutlery set can add much more value to their lives.

These smart home devices can also control other connected devices in their homes such as light bulbs, doors, appliances, security cameras, etc.
