If you aren’t in favour of stuffing a wad of cash in a card and if you are looking for wedding gift ideas, a more meaningful present for the newlyweds is a much more thoughtful avenue to explore. And, no that doesn’t mean you have to buy them a sofa or a toaster!
Chances are you will know the couple’s interests and style, so a piece of homeware that showcases their personality and that they will use in everyday life, is the perfect wedding gift.
For The New Home Owners
Purchasing a new house is expensive business – especially if you add a wedding to the mix. After months of saving and sacrifices, many couples are left with little to no budget for decorating the interior of their new home. If you are particularly close to the newlyweds double up by getting a housewarming gift and check if they are putting together a registry or if they would like help buying any items of furniture.
Purchasing a key piece such as a dining table and chairs or coffee table is a lovely gesture to help give them a head-start in this new chapter of their lives.
For The Hostess With The Mostest
These two love to throw a party. The ultimate foodies, hosting dinner parties and having friends over for drinks is the highlight of their weekend. Barware for this year’s must-have household accessory; the drink cart, will be welcomed with open arms. While a fancy, yet durable pot set, will provide years of pleasurable cooking in the kitchen. Otherwise serving platters, dinner sets and tableware are great options for regular dinner party hosts!
For The Ultimate Homemaker
This gal is a true homebird and will love all things super cute. She takes pride in her abode and loves nothing more than when a pal comes over for a cup of tea and a chat. Keep comfort in mind when choosing a gift for this bride-to-be. Warm and inviting cushions and throws, some wall mirrors or candles and lanterns for her living room are an ideal gift for those cosy nights in front of the telly. Or if you are looking to buy her a small token for her recent engagement, some scented candles or a set of Orla Kiely mugs will go down a treat.
For The City Slickers
Always on the go. Time is of the essence for this pair as they are busy building their careers and keeping up with the hectic pace of everyday city life. A Nespresso coffee machine is the perfect present – it will be their saviour on those early morning rises!
For The On-Trend Fashionista
The queen of style, this bride-to-be is always hot on the latest trends. From the year’s most popular colour coordination; rose quartz and serenity, to rose gold and marble effect details. Keep their industrial chic wedding theme alive by opting for homeware gifts such as rose gold cutlery, a geometric print rug or metallic lanterns and lighting.
