Finding the Perfect Wedding Gift

Searched high and low for the ideal wedding gift? Well there's no need to fret, simply follow our helpful guide and useful tips for selecting the perfect present for the happy couple…

Dinnerware

Dinnerware

A classic dining set is a welcome addition to every home. If you're unsure of a colour scheme or their personal style, stick to a classic design with minimal detail. You can't beat timeless white – it will work for any occasion whilst surpassing seasonal trends.

Don't forget…

  • Choose a trusted brand that they'll be familiar with
  • Stick to dinnerware that will be safe in the dishwasher, microwave, oven and freezer
  • Timeless circular designs are always a winner
  • A 16 piece set makes a great gift, but a 24 piece set is perfect if they regularly entertain

Cutlery

Cutlery

Beautiful cutlery is a lovely gift, and one that can be handed down to future generations. If you're swaying towards silverware, choose a classic style that will be treasured, elegant cutlery that will be used for special occasions; Christmas dinner, birthdays… not to mention romantic candlelit meals.

Don't forget…

  • Presentation is important. Opt for a cutlery canteen in a lavish gift box
  • Try to avoid garish finishes… they're not to everybody's taste so play it safe
  • A 24 piece set creates a 6 person table setting

Glassware

Glassware

This is a traditional gift that is a favourite of many wedding guests. Champagne flutes are a popular choice when it comes to glassware – a style that celebrates the occasion and one that is often available in a pair. If you'd rather give something more practical, a selection of everyday glasses makes a fitting present.

Don't forget…

  • Glass or crystal? The choice is yours. Crystal is ideal for those with a bigger budget, whilst glass designs are easier to find./li>
  • Glassware is normally either dishwasher safe or hand wash only. Think of the couple's lifestyle and what they'd prefer
  • Timeless circular designs are always a winner.
  • Why not choose something more lavish like a decanter? It's a special occasion, after all.

Towels

Towels

This might sound a little dull, but sumptuous bath linen is a must if the couple have recently moved into their own home. Clean white is a failsafe shade, however select a colour they love if you're familiar with their home décor.

Don't forget…

  • Purchase two of each style – this usually includes a bath towel, hand towel and flannel.
  • Don't scrimp on quality. Pure cotton towels are a must.

Accessories

Accessories

From vintage-inspired photo frames to beautiful bronze mirrors, home accessories can make wonderful wedding presents. Remember to choose something classic, a gift that will suit everyone's tastes.

Don't forget…

  • Take pride in the presentation. Wrap your gift in tissue paper, followed by lavish gift wrap. Finish with pretty ribbon.
  • Keep their home in mind when selecting your wedding gift. A large wall mirror isn't the best choice if there's nowhere for them to put it.
