Wedding Season: The Gift Giver’s Guide

Wedding season is upon us and the struggle to find the perfect wedding gift right along with it! You want to give something that is special, that the couple will remember fondly for years to come, that they will actually use – and that fits into their lifestyle. A wedding gift is important.

We’ve been busy finding just the right wares that will thrill the newly betrothed couple. Need a few ideas? Read on. Best of all – everything we highlight here is in stock. We’ll gift wrap it and you can be on your way to the wedding in no time flat. Mazel tov!

Toasting flutes: etched with ‘Mr.’ and ‘Mrs.,’ the couple will adore sipping their first toast from these whimsically elegant glasses. Year after year on their anniversary they’ll toast each other again – and think of you.

Simon Pearce has been featured in The New York Times – his glass-making process is world renowned, and his hand-crafted gifts are coveted, becoming heirloom pieces. The fun in giving a gift is that you can find something the bride will love, but she wouldn’t buy for herself. Simon Pearce hurricanes and candles simply sparkle on the table or over the fireplace, helping make their first house into a stylish home.

Shopping for a new table setting can feel like the first real foray into adulthood. White is simple – it can be used every day or dressed up for dinner parties. This set is timeless and classic, made in Portugal and is as functional as it is lovely: it’s dishwasher, microwave, freezer and oven safe.

Add a set of Simon Pearce red- or white-wine glasses for to complete the look. The hefty goblet, hand-blown stem and thin rim allow the glasses to feel as good as they look – and wine in a wine glass just tastes better, more sophisticated.

Hosting cocktail parties or soirees is just part of the fun – but to be able to do it properly the young couple needs the right accessories. An ice bucket in silver looks as good on the bar cart as it does on the patio. Bring back the tony feel of yesteryear with Michael Aram serving dishes with accompanying serving pieces in unique designs. Handcrafted and solid, they are beautiful on their own.

As anyone who enjoys cooking knows, a high-end, good-quality cutting board is as important to the chef as a good set of knives. We love this one crafted by Jan Barboglio – the base is hand-finished iron for a decorative, one-of-a-kind, classic finish.

Obviously hand-in-hand with good cooking equipment are cookbooks that inspire the chef. We can spend hours perusing the pages, trying to find just the right one – the pictures are as inviting as the recipe. The couple will keep it forever and as they try one recipe after another, will think of you.

Finally, when in doubt, a picture frame is always a welcome gift. The bride and groom will have a slew of picture-perfect poses they will want to display. We love the Michael Aram frames that come in a variety of sizes.

Come in, we’d love to help you find the perfect gift for the perfect couple.
