Wedding gift dilemma? The perfect selection of gifts for the Bride and Groom
Hoorah, tis the season to be social! Now that the summer is in full swing, our social calendars are booming and if you’re anything like us, you’re having a bunch of wedding invites currently stuck to your pinboards. Sure, you have the dress, you’ve spent more than expected on the dream pair of shoes and you finally found a clutch to match – but do you have the perfect gift?
Buying newlyweds a gift can be tough, especially if you’re given little guidance! You want to buy something with meaning and thought, a gift voucher simply won’t do! So how about a gorgeous vase or timeless tableware set? When you reach the age of marriage, you’re usually much more grateful for gifts of use, that are practical and that look pretty in the home. So let us introduce you to Villeroy & Boch.
Founded in 1748, it’s fair to say Villeroy & Boch know a thing or two when it comes to tableware, cutlery, glassware and beautiful vases. One of the worlds premium brands for ceramics, this family business is headquartered in Mettlach, Germany and stands for innovation, tradition, and of course – exceptional style! We’ve picked out a few of our favourites to share with you:
1. Ella Partially Gold Plated Cutlery Set – £299
Now this is one stylish cutlery set you’ll almost begrudge having to giveaway! In a stunning silver and gold mix, there has never been a cutlery set so chic. Add a touch of elegance to any kitchen with this wonderful gift that the newlyweds will be sure to love.
2. Classica Contura Plate – £30.32
Do you remember the Friends episode with Monica and the fancy plates? In our teen years we didn’t really get it, but now we SO get it. Because what if the Queen *did* just pop round? In all seriousness, this plate set is ideal for entertaining, and will definitely be well received.
3. Tiko Mini Vase Lovely Rose – £19.90
In a gorgeous neutral Rose this is bound to go well with almost all interior decor. You never want to go too ‘out there’ with wedding gifts, as it’s best to keep it neutral just in case it doesn’t suit the Bride and Grooms personal taste, this vase is ideal! We might just need one for ourselves too…
4. Grand Royal Wine Goblet, £39
For a stunning, affordable wedding gift, this Grand Royal Wine Goblet just ticks all of the boxes. Just love!
5. Quinsai Garden Salad Plate – £32
A lovely gift for a summer wedding that can be enjoyed throughout the warm weather season and will look fantastic when hosting BBQ’s and get togethers with friends. In a stunning floral design, this is a wonderful keepsake – but perfectly practical too!
6. Golden Oasis Espresso Cup & Saucer – £87
We’re a nation of tea-lovers, therefore a cup and saucer set is always well received by all! This one might be too pretty to use though, perhaps more of a decoration. We love the Moroccan style golden print, it’s a lovely touch but the set still remains fairly neutral and elegant.
