A Guide to Choosing Wedding Gifts Worthy of the Occasion

When a wedding invitation drops on your doormat, your initial thoughts are probably those of elation! A new outfit, hair-do and the prospect of fun filled celebrations whizz through your mind. Then you're brought back to ground because you have the issue of finding a suitable gift!

You want to give a thoughtful gift that's unique and functional, one that's not going to be hidden in the back of a cupboard never to see the light of day! Utility have a host of wonderful wedding gift ideas that have a fresh modern appeal while still keeping one foot, so to speak, in-line with tradition.

You can never go wrong with drinking glasses, whether they be a set of two elegant LSA Savoy champagne flutes, (you can always include a bottle of bubbly!), a set of modern rocking spirit glasses or fabulous LSA SA LULU liqueur glasses, there are designs to suit all tastes and tipples.


Keeping with the alcohol theme the beautifully designed wine carafes, Vodka shooter set and the LSA ONO Clear Jug are all well worth considering too.


Maybe you'd prefer to play things a little safer and opt for kitchenware? Always useful, and never out-dated, a choice of charming animal salt and pepper cruets is ideal for pet and animal lovers of all ages. If you know the happy couple love quirky objects that ooze style the ALESSI Paradise Birds Salt & Pepper set are a cut above the rest, coming with their own little perching tree to-boot, so they can also sit happily in a kitchen or dining room as a stylish decorative accessory.


The Alessi Philippe Starck juicer will also make for a striking kitchen accessory; an iconic design with a real retro vibe it will be the ideal statement piece.


Alternatively our selection of gorgeous olive oil taps, drizzlers and bottles which are gorgeous and functional, so much so that they can be used as table or kitchware.

olive-oil_0Utility have a comprehensive range of splendid wedding gifts that have stood the test of time for their functionality, performance and sheer style. Browse through the collection and you'll see that choosing a wedding gift can be a hassle-free pleasure. The only problem you may encounter is trying to decide which gift to choose – you'll love them all!

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
