Wedding gift list ideas from the experts | Tips from Prezola
Weddings are back and we couldn’t be happier. It’s such a joy to watch two people in love tie the knot on their special day. We especially love weddings with unique touches and the wedding gift list is one of those places where couples can show what matters to them. We know it can be tricky to curate, which is why we’ve asked the wedding gift list experts at Prezola.
Brand Manager Lauren Enever shares with us some of the most popular choices. You’ll be sure to find inspiration for your own list or for buying for others. Lauren says that ‘the big theme at the moment is creating memories with loved ones by making the most of your home and elevating the everyday. The beauty of a gift list is each item has been specially picked by the couple, so as a guest you know anything you opt for is going to be something they will truly love.’
What would you say was the most coveted gift list item at the moment?
Our couples are loving the Cast Iron Fire Bowls. It certainly has been the year for gardens with so many people finding a newfound love for their outdoor spaces. We’ve seen a particular focus on cosy garden corners where the comforts of indoor living blend into patio spaces and pergolas. The fire bowl is the perfect centrepiece for this, creating snuggly romantic evenings under the stars, as well as summer evenings toasting marshmallows with family and friends.
Which sorts of gift do you think newlyweds will request more of in the future?
Now more than ever we are aware of our impact on the environment, and sustainability has become a huge factor when deciding what to buy for our homes. For this reason, we predict the Esben range to continue to grow in popularity. It’s not hard to see why it’s already a firm favourite amongst Prezola couples. The retro-inspired style with a Scandinavian twist blends seamlessly with so many colour palettes and interior styles. But the best part is that each piece has been handcrafted from beautiful, sustainable mango wood.
What’s a great practical gift to go for?
Most couples want to create more space in their home and the room they often struggle to do that is the kitchen. The Hudson Kitchen Island is a true investment piece and will completely transform any kitchen without any messy renovation work. Not only does it create valuable worktop space, it also has a huge amount of storage, which means the potential for beautifully organised cupboards.
And what would you say was the best fun gift to choose?
For a touch of fun and opulence, the gift to go for has to be the Kara Drinks Trolley. From Saturday margaritas with friends to mid-week G&Ts, it’s the perfect showstopper to wheel out and impress guests! When it’s not in use, you can style it up with some gorgeous glassware and a houseplant or two and it makes a beautiful focal point.
Which gift will be sure to be treasured forever?
Longevity is of course important and picking the right pieces will mean you can enjoy them for a lifetime. We think the Bella Velvet Armchair is the perfect gift to be treasured forever thanks to its timeless design. Pair it with a gorgeous side table and lamp and you have yourself the perfect reading nook for years to come.
If you love quirky pieces that create a talking point, then the Monkey Bottle Holder is a must. This is one of the most popular Graham and Green gifts added by our couples and its cheeky design will be sure to charm guests of all ages and become a treasured family heirloom.
Any final words of advice for couples choosing their gift lists?
The important thing to remember is no two gift lists are the same because no two couples are the same. Having a gift list is about picking out all those beautiful things that are important to you, your home and your lifestyle. Your wedding gifts should be unique like you are and all that matters is that they bring you joy.
