Unique Wedding Gifts For When You Haven't Got A Clue

Sometimes buying wedding presents is easy. If the couple have a wedding list then you simply pick an item from it and it’s job done. But what if they don’t have a wedding list? All of a sudden, buying the perfect wedding gift becomes a much trickier prospect.

Worry not! Here at Utility, we’ve put together a list of fabulously unique wedding gifts that will stand out from the rest of the bog-standard toasters or dinner services and take pride of place in their home.

Here, let us do the hard work for you…

Wedding Gifts for the Home

We know that technically, all of the wedding gifts here are for the home. However, these products stand out because they can be used in just about any room, and who wouldn't want a gift that's not only versatile, but also looks fantastic ?!

Best for Value - Arne Jacobsen ABC Cups

The typography on these cups was designed way back in 1937 by Arne Jacobsen and it still looks great. These cups can be used for drinking, obviously, but you can just keep your toothbrushes in them if you’d prefer. And of course you can choose the initials of the bride and the groom.

Best for Value - Corda Photo Frame

This delightful little photo frame has a real homely feel to it. The couple can display a favourite photo or even a painting or drawing, and having the glass edge around the photo really helps to frame it further.

Your customer service has been fantastic. I'm seriously impressed. Really pleased to be able to place the bigger order and make your time worthwhile. I think I need to send you a medal!

May 19th 2019 | Jason

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 :-)

Excellent customer service and immediate response to enquiry (live chat). Very happy every time used Utility both online and on high street.

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!

Aug 13th 2019 | Holly

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.

Aug 13th 2019 | Richard

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.

Thank you for all your help and customer service, the Eames Lounge Chair arrived yesterday and I love it.

Comment: I just wanted to say that Esther on the checkout in the L1 store made my day today she was so friendly
