Whether you’re looking for original items with which to inspire your guests or need some guidance for an upcoming event yourself, Leonora Smee, TWE’s new contributing luxury editor has rounded up some ideas to help you find appropriate, meaningful wedding gifts. We can hand on heart say – there’s no chance these luxury goodies will get re-gifted.
A Cookware Set
As any hostess with the mostest will know, nothing stuns dinner guests quite like an impressive tablescape. I love this cream Le Creuset 7-piece cookware set: a classic and functional option for the couples who love to cook, and a timeless and elegant colour to serve at any dining table.
‘Together’ Fragrance Customisation
A wedding is all about celebrating the unique love between two people, and what better way to immortalise this connection than by gifting soon-to-be newlyweds a three-hour appointment to create individual His and Hers scents to bottle up for the big day.
I’m a strong believer that love lies in the little things: a morning spent sipping cappuccinos in the kitchen, a mid-afternoon macchiato brought to a partner during endless work calls or a quick espresso and a kiss on the cheek during the rush out the door. Why not facilitate these magical moments with a Sage Oracle Touch espresso machine. The stylish design with a modern touch-screen interface will enliven any kitchen and fit into seamlessly into your newlywed’s routine.
Large Invitation Tray
Weddings pass by in the blink of an eye and too many times newlyweds wake the next day without any tangible mementos from their big day. This invitation-embedded tray is a beautifully personal wedding gift that uniquely frames the couple’s invitation in a way that is enduring, practical and stylish.
Turntable and Personalised Wedding Playlist Record
Music plays a massive part in all our lives, and to many, it is an integral part of the wedding day. From walking down the aisle to the drinks reception, the first dance to the evening playlist. I would adore the opportunity to relive my wedding day simply by listening to the songs that stapled the day. Gifting this chic turntable and personalised vinyl is the perfect opportunity to give your newlyweds the chance remember their day in an individual way.
Vodka Glass Set
Nothing says luxury like elegant fine crystal. This Waterford Lismore Diamond 30cm Bowl Vodka Chill Set is an ideal gift for couples that love to host and indulge in sophistication & style. With an intricate diamond design, this set will fit right in at any home-bar or as a showstopper on a side-table.
Matching Passport Covers
There is something so exciting about embarking on the first trip as a married couple. Why not personalise these passport covers with married initials to send the newlyweds on their way to new adventures. Handcrafted, sleek and durable, these are a thoughtful gift that will last for years to come.
For some couples, the value of an experience is worth more than that of material items. In these instances, I love the idea of a wedding gift that keeps on giving. The Cookery School at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons offers just this. Against the backdrop of one of the most elegant locations in England, sign your newlyweds up to cooking class that allows them to spend time together while developing skills that they can take into the next era of their lives.
