Wedding Season is well and truly underway, with ceremonies and receptions returning to normal after the last 2 years of covid restrictions, there is a lot to celebrate.
Whether you are joining the happy couple on the big day, or sending a gift from afar, it can often be difficult to know what to choose, especially if the couple do not have a wedding list to browse. So we have put together a wedding gift guide, of all our favourite wedding hampers, so whether you are buying for the newlyweds or the bridal party, we have the perfect gift inspiration.
Hampers for the Wedding Couple
A gift the newlyweds can enjoy together and look forward to opening when they come back from their honeymoon. Wedding Hampers make the perfect wedding gifts, and if they come with a wicker basket these can be used time and time again and serve as a lovely memento of their celebration.
We have a range of different hampers, to suit every budget. Our Champagne and Chocolates gift is the perfect wedding present, all packaged up in coordinating gold gift wrap. For a larger budget, The Extravagance or The Banquet includes an assortment of luxury food and wines.
Hampers / Gifts for Bridesmaids
It’s customary for the Wedding couple to thank their Bridesmaids for all their hard work and support during the wedding preparations and big day with a gift. Choosing gifts will depend on how many Bridesmaids there are, it may be fairly low-key with 2-3 or a big wedding with 6-8, which will affect the overall budget.
The Perfectly Pink Prosecco gift is a wonderful Bridesmaid gift and comes in a gorgeous silver gift bag, the perfect way to toast the happy couple. The Pamper Hamper is sure to please the bride-tribe and help them unwind after all their hard work leading up to the big day. You may want to avoid a gift that features alcohol, especially if you have some Bridesmaids under 18, so the Chocolate Indulgence makes a lovely present, featuring posh chocolates and nibbles.
Hampers / gifts for the Best man
The Best man is often a close relative or best friend, he will be the Groom’s confidant but is rarely involved with the planning of the wedding. His priorities lie with the Stag arrangements and helping on the wedding day itself. He’ll have a lot of juggling to do, from helping the Groom get ready, looking after the rings, greeting guests, and of course the speech!
Johniee Walker Gold Whisky is a great gift for the premium Whisky fan to mark a special occasion. Or perhaps the Best man is more of a Beer drinker – the Beer Lover’s Case would be perfect, with an array of different beers for him to try. The Box of Indulgence is full of indulgent food essentials and luxury red or white wine, which makes an unforgettable treat.
Hampers for the Ushers and Groomsmen
The Ushers / Groomsmen are an extension of the Best Man and will often be made up of friends and or family of the Bride and Groom. They will do a lot of work the day before the wedding, helping with the setup of the festivities. They will also greet guests and show them to their seats. They will also carry out any jobs on the day that need doing!
Below is our pick of Hampers for Ushers, to say thank you.
The Cider and Cheese Gift features some delectable cheese and Cornish cider, perfect for the connoisseur in the friendship group. A great Non-alcoholic gift is the Love Chocolate gift, which features a host of indulgent chocolate and biscuit nibbles. The Boys Night in hamper, is the ultimate treat, full of luxury snacks and some Wold Top beers, to make the perfect hamper gift.
Hampers / gifts for the Mother of the groom / Bride
Traditionally the mothers plays a large part in organising the wedding and maybe there for bridal dress shopping, plus be involved in other details of the day. The Mother of the Bride will often help the Bride get ready on the morning of the wedding, and so it is customary to buy them a gift.
Tea & Bubbles is a lovely treat and features Loose Leaf tea bags as well as an individual-sized bottle of pink fizz, plus some delicious treats.
Prosecco and Chocolates is a wonderful gift for a big occasion, which comes packaged in a beautiful gold gift bag and is a wonderful present for the mother of the Groom or Bride.
If a traditional hamper is more Mum’s style, why not opt for something like The Luxury, which includes a bottle of Prosecco, as well as luxury snacks and nibbles, all beautifully presented in a wicker basket.
Hampers for the Father of the Bride / Groom
Traditionally The Father of the Bride would have financed the wedding, although this can become much more of a shared role in modern day, as well as the wedding couple usually putting their own finances towards it. He still has many important roles at the wedding from ‘giving the bride away’, to traveling with her to the ceremony, and of course the Father of the Bride speech.
We have a host of hampers and gifts perfect for the Father of the Bride or Groom, from Tea and Treats, the perfect non-alcoholic gift, or The Indulgence, a Luxury Hamper full of lavish snacks, which includes a bottle of red and white wine. For the Whisky fan, we have the Whiskey Lovers Gift, which is sure to warm the cockles.
gifts for Flower girls and Page boys
Some weddings have flower girls and page boys as part of their wedding party, which is guaranteed to add a little cuteness. It can be a big responsibility and great achievement for them to walk down the aisle with all eyes on them, so they are usually gifted a little something for being a part of the big day.
Our Tear and Share bag is full of retro sweets, that is sure to delight any little one! From Love Hearts, Rainbow Drops and Fizz Wiz, there are so many different chocolates and sweeties to bring a little glee.
Our Chocolate Letterbox Gift may be small enough to fit through your letterbox, but the contents is full of joy, like chocolate covered marshmallows, popcorn and hot chocolate sticks!
