Putting together your wedding gift list is one of the fun parts of planning your big day. After all, choosing presents that you can enjoy together as a married couple can help you shape your vision of life after your big day, and everything you both have to look forward to.
While there’s no one-size-fits-all approach, there are some go-to wedding gift list ideas that most of us would be thrilled to receive. Here are our favourite suggestions from Alexanders, we guarantee you’ll find plenty of inspiration as you scroll!
A toaster and kettle may be the ultimate wedding list standard items, but they are everyday essentials and you will need them to be reliable. If you’ve always wanted a KitchenAid mixer or dreamed of making your own bread from scratch? Now is the time to ask. Look at your daily routine and figure out which items may prove particularly valuable: would you both love a blender to make smoothies each morning, or a slow cooker so dinner’s ready when you get home after work? We've got all the options in our Cookshop department.
Whether you’ll be moving in together after your wedding or you’ve already there, a diffuser or luxe candle is a gift you’ll get use out of every single day, and they’re not as expensive as you might think either.
Some of our favourite brands include names like Ashley & Burwood, Max Benjamin & Marmalade of London. The Ashley & Burwood Heritage Diffuser looks super stylish and will leave your house smelling fresh with high-quality fragrance blends.
Improve your amateur chef game with a high-end wok or griddle pan, or finally achieve the ultimate marker of adulthood: owning one of those iconic casserole dishes! We have an excellent range of brands to help you become a culinary expert.
Keen bakers might also appreciate cake tins in a range of sizes, or the perfect square brownie tin: ultimately, it’s just wise to play to your strengths and ask for items you know you’ll definitely use. See also: really, really good kitchen knives.
This gorgeous Weber Q 1200 BBQ is a wonderful addition to any outside area. Even if you only have a patio or a small garden for now, a quality BBQ that's made to last will move with you throughout your life, and be the centrepiece of many a fun afternoon with friends. Some guests like to buy bigger items from your list and a BBQ is a perfect to have on for that choice.
The wedding toasts may be over, but that doesn’t mean your hosting days are! There are few things that feel more special than pouring out a leftover bottle of champagne into the type of glasses you’ve coveted but never quite had the budget to purchase.
We have a range of everyday glasses from brands like Denby and Villeroy & Boch and also some beautiful higher end glasses like the Gin Journey from Waterford.
Bedding & Towels
Well, what’s a home without some cosy soft furnishings too? We have such a wide selection of the highest quality towels available from Cawo and Vossen. We also stock duvets, pillows and protectors from Fine Bedding and we were excited to recently add luxury bed linen and bedding from The Finest Linen Company to our selection. These companies produce quality staples that can last for years, so choose wisely and they’ll serve you well.
There are few gifts more personal or thoughtful than a gorgeous print or painting, and it’s something that the creatives on your guest list will be thrilled to get for you. We have lots and lots of beautiful wall art in all shapes, sizes and themes which can be used to help decorate your home beautifully.
