July is here! With wedding season well underway, we thought it was about time we helped you with deciding on what gifts to give soon-to-be newlywed couples. You’re likely to have at least one wedding to go to this summer, and finding the perfect gift is not always as easy as it should be. Here at The Longest Stay, we’d like to give you some advice on what makes a memorable wedding gift, from our fabulous home accessories to our tableware and glassware sets! No matter the recipient’s style, we are bound to have something that will make them smile! Take a look through our Gift Guide for a little inspiration.

You can’t go wrong with tableware as a present for newlyweds. From gorgeous sets like the Royal Crown Derby Oscillate Coupe Plate and Beverage Cup, which will add a touch of class to any dinner party they throw, to glassware pieces like the Bib & Sola Designer Multicolour Set. This modern set, which is available in a variety of different colours, is perfect for matching to any existing interior theme the happy couple may have while adding a modern twist to their collection. 

Serving pieces are also a fantastic gift - items like the Culinary Concepts Octopus 3 Section Server, which has a gorgeous and unique design, will add a touch of glamour to any designer dining table! The Seashore Salad Bowl, also from Culinary Concepts, is also a gorgeous item to give as a gift. It has been delicately designed and finished in flawless silver detailing and will become a stunning addition to any luxury dinner set. 

If you know the couple already has a pretty extensive collection of tableware, then giving them a gorgeous vase to adorn a designer sideboard or side table, is another option. We have a range of vases, varying in style, so you're sure to find one that they will love. The Waterford Half & Half Teal Vase is a contemporary piece sure to add style to any room. Its pop of dark but bold teal colour at its top is a gorgeous feature that will contrast any floral display beautifully, The blue-green colour and heritage glasswork meet creating a modern yet sophisticated piece. 

What home is complete without a drinks set? Of course, the style of product you give will depend on the couple’s entertaining habits - as well as their drink of choice! If they consider themselves to be expert mixologists, then the Culinary Concepts Lighthouse Cocktail Shaker is ideal for them. This quirky cocktail shaker, which will make an excellent centrepiece on any table due to its imaginative design, will instil even more fun into their cocktail nights! Of course, our collection of drinks sets cater for different beverage tastes; have a look at our range to find the perfect set!
