THE ULTIMATE WEDDING GIFT GUIDE
Wedding season ‘tis up upon us and no doubt if you’ve found your way here, you’re already planning on how to maximise your one appropriate dress for multiple occasions. Your wedding present to the happy couple is a token of your love and appreciation, so getting it right is the next step on your wedding guest survival guide.
While purchasing gifts from wedding registries is all well and good, we like to think that a little more personality should be present in a truly good gift. Lists typically go for function over form and we feel a wedding gift should be representative of your own relationship with the duo. We all know how much better it is to receive an unexpected parcel of joy, than that electric whisk that will find its way to the back of the cupboard pretty soon after.
W.A.Green was founded out of a love for buying the right gifts, so you’ve truly come to the right destination. Check out our top picks for the ultimate unwrapping joy after the main event.
For the quirky duo
The quirky duo - our favourite kind. It’s not likely that you could go wrong in W.A.Green when it comes to these guys, but this really is a case of go big or go home. Your gift needs to be wacky enough to set their pulses racing and to become centre-stage of the mantlepiece. Perhaps a look at our “Shelfie” section will inspire you. Failing that, you won’t be able to go wrong with one of Fredde Lanke’s vibrant and playful vases. These heavy, handmade vessels are bursting with personality and will go down a treat with those that like interiors with a difference.
For the stay at home couple
We all have that set of friends that would rather spend their Friday night tucked under a blanket avec a movie and popcorn, so why not allow them to fully embrace their habits and spoil them with a throw for their abode? Preen’s satin silk eiderdowns and cushions will bring utter bliss to the sofa or for the more boho couple, surprise them with a unique woven cotton blanket from US-based Slowdown Studio. We can only apologise for you never seeing them again and hey, if you can’t beat them, just join them!
For the hosts with the most
Unlike the stay at home couple, the hosts with the most are always entertaining. They party so much that a kitchen refresh is constantly on the horizon and glassware is a key part of their lives. Yes, really. These champagne coupes by Madam Stoltz are the ultimate romantic addition to bring the fifties glamour, while the more colourful couple might appreciate these blue-hued tumblers for the tee-total nights. Failing that, a good scent is always required at a dinner party and we have a wide selection of home fragrances for you to get your hands on.
For the childhood sweethearts
The younger couple stereotypically tend to be a little more sentimental when it comes to their style so you can afford to be a little more cheeky and cute with your offering. Thankfully we discovered Helen B’s range of ceramics which are just perfect for your oldest friends’ wedding. From naked couples, to sweet illustrations, these are bang on the money for a suitably sweet gift with a little bit of spice.
For the rock and rollers
If the lucky couple are likely to be rocking up on Rock n Roll Bride shortly after the wedding, you need to be on your a-game with your gift buying, as this pairing could be hard to please. Fear not, this is absolutely where Jonathan Adler steps in with a wide array of quirky, yet still suitably sexy options. We’d highly recommend the classy Les Girls Square Tray or the attention-grabbing Full Dose Coasters for a gift that packs a punch.
For the green-fingered bride
While we said to not be practical, let’s face it, newly weds are always on the hunt for interior-led items. Can you really go wrong with something for the greenery? These brass planters by HUBSCH bring a little luxury for less, or try one of their pink hanging baskets if you’re on a lower budget.
