Wedding season is well and truly underway and rescheduled dates may mean that you find yourself at more than one special day over the coming months. While having lots of weddings to attend is never a bad thing, it can often make buying the perfect gift a little more difficult.
So, if you're struggling for inspiration, here are five weddings gift ideas from some of our favourite small businesses in the UK.
The Botanical Candle Co
Based in Dorset, The Botanical Candle Co creates beautiful soy candles in a range of recognisable scents that are both comforting and familiar. From the smell of late summer to the scent of green fig, there are many different options to choose from that are sure to delight your senses.
Whether you’re buying the couple's favourite scent, or you’re choosing something that reminds you of them, candles can be a lovely gift for those that remember sentimental times and places based on scent.
Kathy Hutton Prints
When shopping for a wedding gift, homewares can feel like a risky choice if you're not sure of the couple's style or taste. As long as you choose something that ties in with their home colour scheme, chances are the couple will enjoy a thoughtfully-chosen print for their walls. Something classic and cotemporary, like those from Kathy Hutton Prints, is a great place to start.
Swallows And Damsons
Gifting flowers at a wedding may seem like a safe option, but with a wide range of beautiful bouquets and arrangements to choose from, Swallows and Damsons in Sheffield certainly go the extra mile.
With years of experience and a newly-released book on flower-arranging, florist Anna Potter knows a thing or two about creating a stunning bouquet fit for a wedding gift.
Here Be Monsteras
Homewares are a traditional wedding gift for young couples or those who have recently bought a home together. With that in mind, Here Be Monsteras, based in York, creates beautiful wheel-thrown ceramics ideal for a unique wedding gift.
As a one-woman show, this small business creates individual pieces by hand. As no two pieces are the same, you can be confident you're purchasing a gift no one else has bought! There are so many unique options to choose, from mugs and plates to vases and candlestick holders.
The British Blanket Company
What would a wedding gift list be without one of our very own blankets? Not only are you giving the gift of cosy, but you’re gifting the special couple with something that will help them create incredible memories together. From nights cuddling up on the sofa to spontaneous picnics at the beach, our throws are so much more than just a blanket. Discover the perfect wool blanket for the lucky couple today!
