Much like marriage itself, the ideal wedding gift should stand the test of time and bring delight on a daily basis. (No pressure newlyweds!)
A good wedding gift is something the couple are pleased to receive. A great wedding gift is one they still enjoy decades later.
Take one of the presents from my own wedding: a gorgeous cashmere blanket given by my lovely friend Jeremy. For the last 11 years it has lived on the arm of our sofa and our family curls up under it daily. It is still as soft and beautiful as the day he gave it to us.
Wedding gifts should spoil the happy couple and celebrate their shared space.
As many couples already have well-equipped homes together, opting for beautiful artisan products means unique gifts that won’t be duplicated.
It pays to do your research. I once gave a set of beautiful espresso cups to a friend… who it turns out - hates coffee! This was a long time ago and I make sure I have much better intel these days.
These days, the wedding gift I love to give is our Hampson Platter; it is the most used item in our kitchen and will last a lifetime if looked after properly (this is also useful advice for partners!)
I also give our Brickett Davda mugs as I’m yet to meet anyone who doesn’t love them.
Quality table linen, such as a luxury tablecloth or linen table runner, and artisan ceramics will add joy to the daily routine. Team up with friends or family to give a key present such as dinnerware set: one gives the artisan mugs another gives a set of artisan plates etc.
A sumptuous and spoiling merino wool blanket or a set of luxury cushions – such as ours in velvet – are always pleasing gifts.
A pair of real sheepskin rugs work wonderfully well on a sofa or in a bedroom setting for either side of the bed.
Give them the Rolls Royce of slippers! Luxury sheepskin moccasin slippers made from the highest-grade sheepskin is a sustainable gift that will deliver daily comfort. Can there be a better wedding gift than to celebrate the sense of coming home?
Little luxuries for daily treats include wonderfully-hued handmade luxury bath rugs, hammam towels and our Luxury Bath Gift Box for an at-home spa experience all welcome gifts for a new couple relaxing into married life.
Choose decorative details for discerning interiors: handmade ceramic planters for plant lovers and sculptural indoor wind chimes, make original gifts they will cherish.
A collection of recycled glass vases in contrasting shapes and colours, including our very popular bud vase and origami vase, work beautifully as a set. Buy blooms on their wedding anniversary for a personal gift that keeps on giving.
A luxury bed spread or bedroom cushions will be appreciated for years to come.
Finally, a fun token such as our hand painted wooden egg cups will always make them smile.
