So where do you start? Compiling a wedding list can be quite daunting with so much choice! Here’s my ten top must haves that should be on every modern couple’s wedding registry.
Canvas Home, set up in 2008 by British designer, Andrew Corrie, prides itself on simple, sustainable style, and this striking copper matte finish cutlery definitely lives up to all three of those elements. Its Oslo cutlery collection is inspired by mid-20th century Scandinavian flatware. This is design that lasts, even though gold and copper finishes are particularly on trend right now.
2.) Last-a-lifetime ovenware
Your wedding list is your chance to upgrade in the kitchen and dining department and asking for some lovely, high quality ovenware is a great opportunity to replace the stuff you’ve had since your student days! It’s hard to beat Le Creuset, which is one of our number one sellers. It will last you a lifetime so think carefully about your colour choice
The wonderful pomp and ceremony of your wedding day doesn’t need to stop there. This Wedgwood collection demonstrates Jasper Conran’s unique talent for creating clean, simple, classical tableware patterns. Elegantly rendered fine, white bone china features a new silhouette from Wedgwood, influenced by classic baroque arches and medallions. It’s a versatile collection you can dress up or down at your next gathering.
Do you love bespoke homewares, quirky handmade accessories and unique pieces of art? If so, one of the big trends we’re noticing in wedding gifts is for couples to reflect their true personalities by choosing bespoke gifts like personalised wall art from a boutique retailer like Bombus. This adorable bespoke map heart can be personalised with a location close to a couple’s heart. Bombus source a vintage map of the area and transform it into a beautiful bespoke artwork.
If you know your Chablis from your Chardonnay, and always mark an occasion with a glass of bubbly, others will be happy to splash out on some pricier vintages for you both. This is a thoughtful and sweet gift that you may not normally treat yourself to, and it’ll keep you stocked up on celebratory fizz for years to come.
If you’re an adventurous couple, we have plenty gifts of a lifetime supplied by Tinggly gift boxes. Each gift box contains a voucher valid for any one of 350+ different experiences in 80+ countries. From a 4D experience at the London Eye to Shark Diving in South Africa, you can create memories to treasure, wherever and whenever it suits you. Maybe you could cash it in for your first wedding anniversary!
In times gone by bed linen was one of the most important parts of a bridal trousseau. These days luxurious linens are making a big return to wedding lists as brides and grooms request items that they would never normally consider treating themselves to. If you’re looking for beautifully classic and simple designs, take a look at the range from The White Company. You’ll find everything from 200 thread count cotton percale to 800 thread count Egyptian cotton.
Countertop trophies like coffee machines, designer kettles and the ever popular KitchenAid are always great choices for a gift list. Go for something you might not normally buy like this gorgeous on-trend Artisan Stand Mixer in Pistachio. So chic! Now to perfect that Victoria sponge…
Garden furniture and BBQs are a real favourite with buying guests, especially in the summer when the sun is shining. This galvanised metal ‘Whitstable’ bucket barbecue from Garden Trading is perfect if you have a dinky garden. You can fire it up wherever you go – it fits neatly in the boot of your car for a romantic day in the countryside or at the beach.
Electrical items are no longer the functional but necessary items on a wedding gift list! For instance, if one of you has a love of vinyl, you can enjoy listening to your favourite records wherever you go on this three-speed portable Crosley Cruiser Turntable. It’s modelled on a vintage suitcase and it’s surprisingly lightweight, available in a huge range of colours. It features built-in stereo speakers, too, and looks just as great perched on your sideboard at home as it does on a sunny bank holiday day trip.
