Why not forget the wrapping paper this year and let the bride and groom bond with an unforgettable experience.
The key to giving the best wedding gift is making sure it’s a perfect fit. Show the couple how much you care as well as how well you know them with a present that reflects their passions.
Here are some unique wedding gifts that will leave a lasting impression. I now pronounce you- the best gift-giver ever!
Give the couple a memorable night under the stars. Newlyweds can relax with luxurious accommodations in a Scottish Castle, and enjoy a romantic and educational evening of guided star-gazing. This celestial experience celebrates the beginning of ‘happily ever after.’
Allow the newlyweds to celebrate in style with a macaron and champagne tasting at Ladureé. You may not be able to send them to France but you can still give a truly Parisian experience. They can savour sweet pleasures in luxury; whether in portrait-adorned dining rooms, on the bijou balcony or on the Piazza.
There are few other places we’d rather be and even fewer things we’d rather be doing at the height of British summertime than a picnic in the park. Armed with a hamper loaded full of tantalising scones, cakes, sandwiches, wine, and more, the lucky couple receiving this gift will have all they’ll need to make outdoor memories together. Question is, will it be a nip to Green Park, or deliberating over the perfect spot in Coworth Park? This is the picture-perfect gift for those adventurous al-fresco lovers.
Perhaps arrange a private cooking class. Two Michelin-star restaurant, Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons provides opportunities to watch, learn and practice dishes tailor-made to the couple’s taste. This unique gift will get the newlyweds ready for future dinner parties.
Wine and dine the happy couple with a restaurant voucher at a celebrated restaurant. You’ll help create a lasting memory for the bride and groom so they can enjoy a delightful evening of eating, drinking, and toasting their future together.
Widely regarded as one of the top 50 restaurants in the world, Benares provides the rare opportunity to experience some of the most scrumptious food money can buy. A 7-course dinner from a menu including Cornish Crab Croquette, Tomato and Coconut Chutney’ and ‘Roasted Rump of English Lamb with Rogan Jus.
Need we say more?
From Netflix subscriptions, to museum memberships, to coffee clubs, you’ll find an annual membership to suit any couple. This is the gift that keeps on giving.
Whether a horse-drawn carriage tour around central London, or exploring a royal palace, take in iconic sights and live like kings and queens for a day. The newlyweds can toast the occasion with a bottle of bubbly, or indulge with afternoon tea for two.
What could be more necessary post-wedding than a relaxing pampering session? Give the gift of pure indulgence with private and personalised spa pampering.
Perhaps the best way to soothe the two tired bodies and minds would be a massage for two at the Dorchester Spa.
Together, the couple can come back from the recent hustle and bustle, and enjoy an hour-long massage side by side. Besides experiencing a luxurious choice of massages, the couple will have full access to the lounge, sauna, steam rooms and sensory showers.
For a real treat, indulge the couple with tapas cooked in a Michelin star kitchen with a selection of wines provided by an expert member of the Halkin’s bar team. The whole experience serves as an exquisite introduction to Basque cuisine, perfect for just about any time of day.
Going To The Movies
An afternoon at the movies never gets boring, especially when it’s at this state-of-the-art cinema. For avid movie-goers, this wedding gift would be a clever choice. The lucky couple can enjoy a “Film of the Week,” from a variety of new, modern and classic films from the luxurious chairs of the Soho cinema. The cowskin seats in the cinema are, much like the rest of the Hotel, a bold design choice, but in all its unconventionality, The Soho Hotel possesses comfort and convenience in inviting abundance.
But how can you enjoy a movie without food? This gift allows the bride and groom to choose if they would like an afternoon tea, or a three-course lunch or dinner in the Refuel Restaurant. For a little extra, they can both have a glass of champagne to accompany their movie.
If the couple would like to extend their stay, after enjoying the movie, we’d be happy to arrange for them to stay in the Soho Hotel. A movie is a great way to unwind after the months of crazy wedding planning.
