To love and to cherish

Wedding invitations can appear on the doormat at any time of year; but as the ‘wedding season’ gets into full flow, we all start thinking about that eternal question…

What should I buy the happy couple as a wedding present?

Comprehensive wedding lists are published, consisting of bed linen, expensive food mixers that we can only dream of using ourselves and mundane gifts you don’t deem ‘special’ enough to give the newlyweds. It’s all so confusing!

It also means that each knife can be sharpened at home for ease and convenience, with the Signature ceramic sharpening wheel. Impress a budding chef or really improve their cooking ability with this unique and award-winning gift idea.

4.   The Drift Collection

Love at first sight.

For many, purchasing a gift for the newlyweds means getting them something they wouldn’t normally purchase for themselves because it wasn’t a necessity; something out of the ordinary. The Drift range is certainly that. Including candle holders, salt and pepper shakers, pinch pots, bowls and a collection of barware, the collection makes dining a special experience.

Introducing the newlyweds to a range they can add to over the years to come is a thoughtful gift idea and what better way than to give the Drift Champagne bucket for a highly unique and functional tableware piece. For those going the extra mile why not pop along to a local engraver and get the wedding date engraved on to the side?
