I NEED TO FIND AN AMAZING WEDDING GIFT

Got a tricky gift dilemma that needs solving? Our resident present-buying expert is on hand to help with the ultimate gifting recommendations. This month: the Gift Guider’s here with the best wedding gift ideas.

Dear Gift Guider,
I’m so excited that weddings are back on the agenda this year, but I need some serious inspiration for a close friend’s wedding gift. I want to surprise her and her husband-to-be with something amazing, but I’m really struggling with ideas. What do you buy the happy couple that has everything? Help!
Yours,
Wedding Guest-to-be
Dear Wedding Guest-to-be,
Finding a good (aka, not cliché) wedding gift can be tricky, that’s for sure. Most couples tying the knot already have their house decked out with all the homeware essentials they’d ever need, and a cash gift towards the honeymoon can feel a little bit unsentimental for a couple you’re close to. So, to help you find something truly special, I’ve gathered the most unforgettable wedding gifts – from indulgent food and wine hampers for them to feast on after the celebrations to memory-making experience gifts to prolong the party – just scroll and see.
Yours,
The Gift Guider

Indulgent wedding gifts

My go-to for a special occasion is usually something indulgently delicious (it never fails to raise a smile) – and in this case, that means something they can feast on after the wedding’s over. A great bottle of Champagne will always go down well; the Veuve Clicquot x Yayoi Kusama is a brilliant keepsake option, as is a thoughtfully personalised bottle of Moet & Chandon. Or, you could go all-out with a luxury hamper, stuffed to the brim with delicious treats. This ‘I love you’ hamper includes a delicious bottle of Rosé Champagne and chocolate rose truffles, while the Breakfast in Bed hamper would be great for them to enjoy the morning after the night before. If you know their favourite nibbles and drinks, you could always create a unique hamper via the Selfridges Hamper Concierge, who are on hand to box up all their favourite goodies – from biscuits to whisky – just for them.

Classic (with a twist) gifts

There’s no denying that monogrammed dressing gowns, cutlery sets and flowery teapots may have been the perfect go-to wedding gift a few decades ago, but they’re not quite right for modern couples today. So, if you’re keen on finding them a useful homeware or kitchenware gift, I’d recommend choosing items with a modern, luxurious twist. Case in point, the Ooni outdoor pizza oven – a brilliant gift that’ll get years of use and should get you invited over for a slice of homecooked pizza in the near future. Win-win. Bold, personality-packed art, stylish coffee machines or an amazing vinyl player would all make great additions to their homes, too.

Experience wedding gifts

How about a gift that doesn’t require wrapping paper, courtesy of The Experience Concierge at Selfridges London? I’d encourage the happy couple to carry on the celebrations long after the DJ has played the last song at their reception (it’s always I’ve Had the Time of My Life, isn’t it?), and gift them a memory-making experience to enjoy together. If they’re big movie buffs, a private screening night at The Cinema at Selfridges of their favourite film, along with popcorn, snacks and plenty of Champagne, should knock their socks off. Or push the boat out and surprise them with an extraordinary day for two with our ‘Pull-out-all-the-stops Celebration’ gift: an expert make-up or grooming session followed by a delicious three-course meal at our brilliant Brasserie of Light restaurant and finished with a private movie screening at The Cinema at Selfridges.
