While couples say I Do throughout the year, the long summer months of June, July, August and September – with their drawn-out evenings and warmer temperatures – tend to be a more favourable time of year for many. Largely due, in part, to the unpredictability of the Great British weather perhaps.
From the invitation-receiving to the outfit planning, travel arrangements and hotel booking, deciding what to gift the happy couple to symbolise their life together can sometimes end up being a bit of an afterthought. Should you get them something personalised and romantic, or practical and convenient? These days, many couples live together before the big day approaches, so the usual household appliances have already been bought. It is the homely, thoughtful touches then, that will make for a welcoming and appreciative wedding gift.
for nature lovers
For the country couple. Those that love nothing more than venturing into the great outdoors and making the most of the natural world. Why not help them to bring the outside into their home with nature prints and practical items featuring man’s best friend?
for first-time buyers
For those couples who might be moving into a new home following their big day, consider a homely and thoughtful present as they embark on a new adventure together. It’s easy to forget the practical pieces amid the excitement of home buying and wedding planning so doormats, lighting and useful accessories with a country twist all provide the perfect new home addition for newlyweds.
for the heart of the home
We’re big believers in our kitchens representing the heart of the home. It’s where we gather for delicious food, a deserving coffee break or a good catch-up with friends and family. It’s a communal space and one that can help to set the tone for the rest of your home, so why not treat the happy couple to vintage-inspired accessories for creating a traditional, bustling country kitchen of their very own?
for gifts under £100
A few of our favourite finds all under £100 – perfect for the newlyweds and their new home together.
If you’re lucky enough to live in the area or happen to be visiting the Cotswolds, Norwich or Chelmsford in the next few weeks, our three beautiful stores feature an array of exclusive gifts and homewares. From rustic kitchen accessories to linen cushions, vintage-inspired vases and a selection of candles and reed diffusers, you’ll no doubt find something special for the happy couple this summer.
