Statement Artwork

Artwork is definitely a top 10 most popular wedding gift. We know couples are looking to invest in something that will last a life time and original artwork ticks all the boxes. We also know that guests love to buy or contribute towards art for couples too, so it is the perfect gift all round! Our amazing art partner, Rise Art offers such a huge variety of art styles from hundreds of original artists that our couples have so much to choose from.

Smart Home Technology

Since the launch of the Sonos Smart speaker with Amazon Alexa, smart home technology is becoming more popular to have in the home. As 2018 rolls on we predict that all sorts of smart home gadgets will start appearing on more and more gift lists.


We are delighted to announce that we have partnered with some of the best monthly subscription companies to bring our couples gifts that keep giving. From weekly flower deliveries to monthly fine wines delivered to your door. Subscriptions are such a lovely gift to add to your lists and they are a treat you might not necessary buy yourselves.

Design Lead Classics

Classic gifts are getting a modern make over. Le Crueset are always so good at keeping up with trends, and creating their classic casserole dishes and cookware in the latest colours. We currently love their new rosemary collection. Other brands such as Alessi and Barrista & Co. create classic coffee and kitchen accessories in contemporary designs so that you can update your home essentials with something that you know if look fabulous out on display.

Bold Lighting

A great way to update your home, bold lighting statements can really transform a room. Floor lamps are a perfect way to do this, and we have so many great options from our brands particularly Plus, we are currently loving the Bag & Bones personalised initial neon heart light which we predict is going to be super popular with our 2018 brides.

Concrete Accents

Concrete accents throughout the home is set to be a big interior trend for 2018. Our latest brand, Lyon Beton specialises in just that! Their most popular item is their cloud shaped loo paper shelf. A really fun but practical way to embrace this trend, and already so popular!
