How to Choose Wedding Gifts that Will Last a Lifetime

One of the most exciting things to do when you’re getting married has to be compiling your wedding gift list. It can be great fun, but there are so many luxury homeware items out there, that it can be hard to know where to start. At iWoodesign, we sell many homewares online, so we have pulled together these tips on how to create your dream gift list.

When compiling your wedding list, it can be quite tempting to go for items that are fashionable and that you need right now. A new iron perhaps, or a neon toaster and all of the other 'essentials' of everyday life. But, why not think a little further ahead, and add gifts that will not only last the couple's lifetime, but may even become family heirlooms as well. Your guests will love the fact that they can give you something that will be a part of your life for a long time, and will be something that you can enjoy again and again. Here are some of our favourite items that will help to future-proof your gift list and create memories of your wedding for years to come.

An oldie but a goodie, this is a gift that will be used time and time again not only by the happy couple, but their friends and family as well. A good quality cutlery set in its own presentation set is a must on any wedding list. British brands such as, Viner’s and Robert Welch, produce stunning sets that can be mixed and matched, or even bought as single place settings.
Traditionally seen as a present for the boys, decanters are now considered a perfect gift for couples as it can help them see through to the early hours reminiscing with friends and family for many years to come,
and will always be a stand out hit at any get-togethers. Waterford Crystal or Dartington are always a good bet sitting o
n a beautiful tray.

Seasonal Dinnerware
Not an obvious choice, but a special Christmas themed dinner set is a great gift to show off at a special time of year. A dinner set that you pull out once a year to celebrate with friends and family will carry with it precious memories of good times with loved ones. Adding one to your gift list means that everyone can contribute something towards it, and you can add pieces to it yourself as well. Try and keep it tasteful by choosing something like the Sophie Conran for Portmeirion range, so that it will never go out of style.

Luxury Photo Cubes and Frames
No doubt there will be at least one picture from your special day that you want to share, so why not display them in a luxury wooden photocube or frame?
A great
way to keep the memories of your day alive and a talking point with friends and family too. The luxury
wooden photo frames from iWoodesign are so beautifully made that the backs are as attractive at the front.
The photo cubes have really clever magnetic frames to allow easy inserting and removal of photographs, so you can change your view as often as you want!
