Have you been invited to yet another wedding this year?! You know what that means… another attempt at buying a gift that really matters for the happy couple. Fear not, below we cover the best and most unique wedding gifts you can buy in 2017.
Whether you know the couple well or you’re just invited as distant relatives, picking a good gift is essential. Keep reading to find out how to be the best gift givers on the big day
When you’re trying to choose the best wedding gift for the happy couple, you face plenty of difficult decisions. Some couples will send out a gift list, so all you need to do is pick things off the list… other times you’ll need to find a gift yourself.
The key to doing this is to pick something useful, something that you know they’ll use. Flowers, champagne glasses and other little trinkets will look lovely on the day of the wedding but you know they’ll end up in the bin or a box in the attic once they’ve moved in.
Home décor pieces are a good bet if you want to ensure you’re remembered. You don’t have to be boring and pick a toaster, you can find all sorts of elegant, unique home décor pieces and appliances that they’ll really make use of once moved in.
Some really unique ideas we’ve seen include egg-scelters, hip kettles and trays of unusual and unique cutlery with beautifully carved handles. The hands down winner, however, has to be the humble wine rack.
There’s no doubt that someone is going to be buying the newlyweds a bottle of wine… or 12. What better gift than a stylish wall rack to go in their new home?
Ideally, you should know what interiors and décor taste the couple have before buying a wall rack, that way you can pick some stylish pieces to really fit with their new home. Regardless of whether you know their interior choices or not, head over to Wine and Barrels; they have so many choices when it comes to wine racks you’re bound to find something they’ll fall in love with!
One of our favourites is the corner wine rack in simple black wire. This wall rack is so minimalist it will fit with every home, plus you don’t need much storage space as it clings to the corner of the room. This wine rack can fit 50 bottles of wine, holding them perfectly horizontal to ensure the flavour of the wine is preserved for a long time.
If you want something a little more traditional looking, buy them the ALFI wine holder: it only holds 12 bottles but is made of a really beautiful plank of wood. You can also buy this model in pine wood for lighter interiors.
