Many bride & grooms will nowadays supply all guests with a Gift List, listing all the items they would like to receive and where these items might be purchased. This is helpful for wedding guests who are uncertain of what to get, and also allows the bride & groom to ensure they get exactly what they want whilst removing the possibility – and the awkwardness! - of receiving duplicate gifts. If spectacular household goods are on that list you may want to check out the handcrafted home furnishings range from Suffolk based Jim Lawrence. This is a family business, designing and handcrafting beautiful products for the home from its Suffolk workshop in Hadleigh. There have a large showroom in Hadleigh displaying their range of unique lighting, lampshades, home furnishings, door and window furniture, soft furnishings, switches and sockets. A welcome gift for any home!

Wedding Gift Ideas

However, lists are not always provided, and some guests may feel that a Gift List, whilst being practical, can take away from the element of surprise.

When choosing your wedding gifts, think about the bride & groom and what you know about them. Are they setting up a new home together, or do they have a sense of humour that you could incorporate into your gift? Do they have any interests such as cooking or gardening, or perhaps a favourite colour or style that you could seek out an appropriate gift to match?
