Gifts to treasure for years to come....
Wedding gifts can be hard to find, particularly if you want to gift something a bit more interesting and unique and not the same John Lewis cutlery set as everyone else.
I've put together my recommendations below for beautiful wedding present ideas- special pieces to treasure for years to come.
The Vintage List make the most beautiful glasses for both special celebrations and every day dining. Engraved with a number of different patterns, they come in sets of 6 or pairs including the Star Engraved Champagne Saucers (£32/pair) below and the Lens Wine Glasses (£86 set of 6) - 2 of my favourite designs.
Continuing down the same there, we also stock the Trellis glasses by Bungalow. The perfect size for a G & T or water tumbler too. Available in a set of 2 for £28.
We've been working with Paige Mitchell in Norwich on some exclusive ceramics for the SYS shop including these beautiful frilly Harlequin green and white vases (£60). They've been a best-seller in store and perfect as a gift to fill with flowers on the mantlepiece.
There's also Paige's Harlequin oval dish (£50) too- perfect for housing your keys and cards by the front door.
You can't really go wrong with table linens, especially when they're accompanied by beautiful porcelain napkin rings. We commissioned Joanna Ling to create some wavy porcelain napkin rings in 3 different colour ways, available in sets of 2 online or in store.
Or a special candle holder for the dining table or a sideboard is a lovely idea too. Joanna creates wavy porcelain candle holders in 2 sizes.
For those that lovely to travel, the A Week Abroad journals make a brilliant gift not only as a local's guide to each destination but also as a fun, well-designed coffee table book to display. We currently stock 3 different popular destinations- Marseille, Puglia and Alentejo in Portugal.
And to display those coffee table books, there's the lacquered trays - perfect for an ottoman or low central table, to hold candle holders, special objects and more.
