Not sure what wedding gifts to ask for? It can be hard to know where to start, and Prezola allows you to mix traditional with modern gifts, everyday essentials with stylish upgrades along with experiences and honeymoon funds. For some wedding inspo, here’s the 10 must-have gifts for your wedding list from Prezola…
1. The dinnerware set
The classic. Getting married means it’s time to update your dinnerware to include a fancier, more grown-up everyday set, along with a more expensive set to bring out at special occasions. Dubbed ‘the wedding china’, this present really makes dinnertime special – because you can say things your parents did, such as “honey, can you get out the wedding china? Your parents are coming for dinner!”
2. The quirky wall print
Whether it’s a map of where you first met, or your initials together, everyone loves a good print in the home. It’s become the new art and it’s oh-so-Instagram-able, plus it’s the perfect excuse to create a gallery wall in the home.
3. The heirloom
Make sure you also add gifts that will be used for years to come. A serving dish brought out at special meals, a vase to hold all future bouquets from special occasions or a photo frame to display your wedding photo – all of these heirloom-style gifts will be the first to be snapped up by guests too.
4. The countertop trophy
This classic wedding gift will be there to bake all your future birthday cakes, special anniversary desserts and weekend goodies. A KitchenAid lasts a lifetime to stand proudly in your newlywed home. Not only this, but it’s a treat you wouldn’t buy yourself, so a wedding gift list is the perfect time to snatch one up.
5. The newlywed pride
You’re getting married… that’s huge! Celebrate it with pride by adding a gift to your list that celebrates your new status. Whether it’s a Mr & Mrs print, Hers & Hers mugs or Mr & Mr salt & pepper shakers, guests will love to buy something with your new title because everyone loves love.
6. The luxury treat
Once you’ve got all the usual stuff out of the way such as dinnerware and heirlooms, why not have a treat on your list? If there’s something you’ve always wanted such as a Sonos music system, Dyson vacuum cleaner or Apple iPad then don’t hesitate to add it to your list. Guests honestly love to help you out and want to buy a give to commemorate your marriage.
7. The future date night
Get a head’s start on the romance by adding some date night items to your wedding gift list: a picnic hamper for a cute picnic in the park, or maybe a breakfast in bed tray to spoil your partner on Sunday mornings. Another great idea is adding a bottle of champagne to open on your first anniversary.
8. The party piece
Being married means hosting dinner parties, right? Go ahead and add something quirky that your guests will love such as a mini pizza oven to let the creative sparks fly, or even a set of shot glasses for when things get a little crazy. Don’t forget to add a party game like Twister or Trivial Pursuit to your list – people go nuts for one of those cheeses…
9. The toast
You’ll need some grown-up glasses to toast all future occasions and bring out at special dinners. This could be champagne flutes, wine glasses, martini glasses or all of the above. Gift lists are a great chance to match your glassware too, so don’t forget about tumblers and hi-balls.
10. The big experience
Getting married is an unforgettable event, so make it truly memorable by adding a once-in-a-lifetime experience! There’s plenty to choose from like a Virgin balloon flight or white water rafting, adventure is out there!
