4 Wedding Gifts the Couple Didn’t Know They Wanted


It’s that time of year. You know, when lovely embossed envelopes arrive in the mail, your Facebook feed fills up with engagement announcements, and your available Saturdays become more and more scarce. You guessed it: It’s wedding season!

If you’re like me, finding the right gift has never been an easy task – until now! I’ve hand-picked some items that will make wonderful wedding gifts, whether the couple is just starting out or have everything they need.

Skip the registry – here are four wedding gifts they’re sure to love:

Soft and Cozy ThrowBlanket

From cuddles on chilly nights to days when they’re fighting a cold, this mohair blanket will be with them through thick and thin, in sickness and in health, for many years to come. It is also stunning to look at, adding a touch of sophistication to any sofa or armchair it adorns.

Chic Handmade Bowls

These handmade bowls are almost too pretty to use. Made in France, they make a beautiful, unique addiction to any tabletop. The cherry on top?The phrase scribed on the side of the bowl, “Fait avec amour” translates to “made with love”. How perfect is that!

Pretty Handblown Candles

I’ve already told you I’m in love with these candles by Alixx. They make a home feel warmer, and I’m willing to bet they make newlyweds’ evenings feel just a little more romantic. They’re gorgeous lit or not, and come in a variety of sizes and colors: Might I suggest something blue?

Handmade Towels

Every love story is special, and believe it or not, the history of these towels is no exception. An artisan out of Florence makes the linen from the shop that’s been in her family since her grandmother opened it years and years ago. Each towel is handmade, and represents the love and commitment to family that spans generations. They’re brand new to Urban Swathe and come in three colors.

Congratulations to all the happy couples out there! I wish you all the best in your newly (or soon-to-be) wedded bliss!
