Every wedding guest wants to choose the perfect wedding gift that the bride and groom will genuinely cherish. However, trying to choose that extra special present can be a daunting task.
First of all, set your budget.
Often as not, the bride and groom will have a wedding list, so that guests may choose something quickly and easily, at a price that suits. This allows you to stick within your budget, safe in the knowledge that you are purchasing a gift that the happy couple will appreciate. That said, sometimes it can show thoughtfulness to choose the perfect wedding gift that is truly personal.
Consider a personalised gift.
If you want to choose something that shows a little more thought than simply picking from a wedding list. Why not consider a more personalised gift?
With interest in family history at a peak, it can be a great idea to choose a gift that reflects the shared ancestry of the bride and groom. For example, an ‘anniversary double’ print, features the earliest known coats of arms for bearers of the bride’s and groom’s surnames.
Underneath the artwork you can choose to create a personal message. This might be something simple such as the names of the bride and groom. You might also wish to display the place and time of the wedding, to create a print that will be truly unique.
Crystal makes a traditional gift
Crystal can also make a lasting choice and our range can be personalised with your chosen coats of arms. You can also include a personalised message of your choice.
Choose from champagne flutes and wine glasses, to whisky tumblers, brandy glasses or decanters. To create the real wow factor, a celebratory wine set makes an extra special choice. All crystal gifts are beautifully packaged in satin-lined gift boxes. If you would like inspiration on what to engrave on your crystal gift, click here to read our blog post.
