Creating a wedding gift list can be a little daunting, to help you we've provided a few of our top tips to help you along the way. We hope you find them helpful, for further advice our gift list consultant will be happy to help.

  1. Try to complete your wedding gift list at least 10 weeks before your special day, this will allow you time to make amendments and for guests to consider their purchase.

  2. Every couple will have their own tastes and requirements when beginning married life. Establish early what you need and also what you want. Try to avoid short lived trends as you'll want many of your gifts to last for many years to come.

  3. A good place to start with your wedding list is with the basics like good quality cookware and homeware from brands like Barbrantia, Prestige and Stanley. It's also worth browsing our 'Top Gifts' section for a little inspiration.

  4. Be brave and ask for good quality gifts, you'll be surprised how generous your guests can be.

  5. Try to choose items from across a wide price range to accommodate all budgets, we would suggest gifts in the price range of between £15-£400. More expensive items are not uncommon and are often purchased between family members or close friends.

  6. If your gift list is nearly empty with a few weeks to go add to it. Many couples are shy to create large lists and often find their number of invited guests heavily outweighs their gift list.

  7. Try to balance the number of traditional and contemporary gifts for your new life together.

  8. Finally, our 'Wedding Vouchers' are an excellent choice if your unsure as to what you'll actually need for your home once married.
