Wedding season is upon us, and whether you’re looking for a great gift for your sister and brother-in-law, best friend and better half, or your uncle and new auntie, the search can prove equally challenging! As shoppers, we’re all hoping to find a gift that is unique, meaningful and memorable. We’re also tasked with considering how our gift might fit in with the newlyweds’ décor styles, personalities and interests.
Finding the right gift is a tall order. Luckily, wedding gift curators at Lux Bond & Green have been specializing in happy couples for 121 years, and luxury wedding gifts are no exception. Here are five fun, surprising, and beautiful routes that you can go down in order to land on the perfect present for the newest newlyweds in your life.
Luxury and whimsy are an entertaining pair. Yet, they reflect the spirit of a wedding so well! Gift something that embodies a carefree yet curated aesthetic. For an on-trend symbol of hospitality and friendship, consider a pineapple candlestick or sculpture by Simon Pearce.
Mixed shape cordial glasses are the epitome of fun. The newlyweds’ guests will be arguing over who got the larger pour until they’ve each tried them all!
Rustic tableware is another way to introduce a bohemian spirit into the home. Try the Orleans Utensil Collection, which pairs polished stainless steel on top, and matte, almost cement-textured handles. These utensils would look just right next to this soft gray, asymmetrical soapstone wine chiller.
If you like home accents from Simon Pearce, you’ll probably enjoy the wooden designs made by his son, Andrew. Andrew Pearce designs hand-hewn wooden bowls, boards, and serveware from hardwoods. There is a certain sleek luxury to shined wood in the home. For instance, a 17” cherry or black walnut bowl adds a lovely warmth to the table. Mouth-watering hor d’oeuvres look even better served on a black walnut live edge presentation board. Imagine the newlyweds tossing a salad with these timeless cherry serving utensils. All of these wooden pieces are finished with allergen-free walnut oil, without any toxic coatings, and are totally food safe. For the couple who appreciates sustainability and would enjoy bringing a little bit of outdoors inside, Andrew Pearce is a natural wedding gift idea.
A celebration like a wedding is the best excuse there is for crystal gifts. Cut crystal tumblers, decanters, glasses, and tableware are fancy, traditional, and sure to be treasured by generations to come. A great idea for a wedding gifts, these wishes happy flutes evoke effervescence even on the outside; a reminder of chanting “Cheers!” on the couple’s special day. Newly married couples might want to up their dinner party game, and entertain with a set of six lismore wine goblets. If hosting the after-party is more their style, let them keep the fun coming with this chic black lismore ice bucket and a couple sets of matching double old fashioned glasses. For a touch of more color, the Bella Blue vases from William Yeoward would also make a fantastic gift. A luxury wedding gift like Waterford or William Yeoward Crystal is truly a treat to receive.
Include the Fur Babies
Even if Great Aunt Susie has been hinting at children for years now, for some couples, their fur baby is still the apple of their eye. Perhaps one of the most cherished things that the special couple share is the pup, kitty, or other “best friend” in the house. This wedding gift idea includes everyone! Their small dog can lap up luxury in the Match Pewter dog dish or beg for biscuits from this glass cookie jar with a dog finial perched on top. Handmade in Northern Italy, Match Pewter is praised for its traditional craftsmanship and easy, “little-to-no” care routine. Or, deliver a wedding gift that honors the growing family with a portrait; people, paws, and all, packaged in a beautiful, pewter 5”x7” frame or 4”x6” frame from Match Pewter.
