As the weather begins to warm up, say goodbye to a heavy wallet with the onset of wedding season! Gone are the days when everybody would receive a Breville toaster – the year is 2014 and gift giving is becoming more exciting and daunting by the day. Buying wedding gifts can be a walk in the park or every couple-friends’ nightmare, but thankfully, if you’re in the latter category, we’ve gathered up a list of ideas to keep any newlyweds happy.
Personalised wine bottle stopper
Who says the celebrations have to stop after the wedding? With this lovely wine bottle stopper from Not On The High Street, your guests can have their names and wedding date engraved on the top, giving them a reminder of their special day every time they crack open a bottle of bubbly, from the honeymoon right through to anniversaries in years to come.
A new bed
If you really want to push the boat out (and stand out as the best wedding guests!) why not invest in a marital bed for the happy couple? A new bed is an extremely thoughtful gift, not just for decorating a newlywed home but also as something new to symbolise new beginnings and to help the couple adjust to comfortable new sleeping patterns as they enter into their marriage. If you need a little inspiration,bedstar offer next day delivery , so you can pick your favourite just hours before the two exchange their vows.
Wedding wish tree
Beautiful and relentlessly symbolic, this wedding wish tree from Tree to my door will make your friends’ big day memorable for everybody. Instead of writing in a traditional guest book, guests can write their well wishes on the tag and tie it on to the tree, which the couple can keep for years to come to blossom with their marriage. Each tree is a Winter Gem Apple Tree, meaning they’ll be able to enjoy the fruits of their big day, and will also benefit from 50 free tags to supply for their guests.
The alternative gift
This is a great gift idea for couples who love to give something back and have asked guests not to bring presents. The Alternative wedding list : gives guests the opportunity to put their bride and groom friends’ names on a list to give money to a charity of their choice, so your happy couple’s legacy will live on long after their big day.
