Summer is wedding + housewarming season, so we’ve come up with a GIFT IT list that has you covered all year-long. Keep it simple with these gift ideas that are tried and true to help you celebrate life’s milestones with friends and family. They’re thoughtful, but easy. Add a card with a note from the heart to make it even more personal. Our This Calls for Champagne and BIG DAY cards are the top-sellers for tying the knot.
Here are a few of our favourite gifts for newlyweds and new homes:
This Must Be The Place art print by Swell Made Co. Whether it’s a new house or a new life together, this art print with lyrics by the Talking Heads is a new take on the classic “home sweet home.”
Curl Up cotton throw blanket by Swell Made Co. Every home needs a good place to curl up. Gift this blanket to encourage slow living and together time. You know, the important things in life.
Keytags by Swell Made Co. New life = new keys! It’s the little things that count. Grab a keytag for your friends and family that speaks to them. We have a styles for all.
Green Glass Vase by Bloomingville. Give the classic gift of a simple vase. A vase is an easy way to bring in some playful colour, shape and texture into your recipient’s home. Fill it with flowers (also timeless) if you like. If not, the new owners will always think of you when they do.
This calls for wine. For both occasions, of course. Pick up a good bottle of wine to commemorate the occasion. Bonus points if the vintage year is special to them (year they met, etc.). Like a good relationship, a good wine only gets better with age.
Carafe with Glass from Maison Balzac. For the wine (and water) lovers, you can also pick up this carafe with glass. Another gift of classic coloured glass, this set is available in jewel tones and opaque options. You can also purchase additional matching gobelets in the same colour or complimentary colours.
House plant. Calathea Freddie in a Hyde Planter from The Sill. A plant is always a great gift. Plants cleanse the air, promote a sense of calm and make a home look lived in with colour and texture. Choose a plant based on your recipients level of care (beginner to advanced) and lighting conditions. Pair with this self-draining planter available in 4 neutral colours.
Johnny Cash art print by Swell Made Co. Johnny Cash knew a thing or two about simplicity. This quote describes paradise in his own words. Perfect for romantics and newlyweds.
Happy celebrating, swell friends! How many weddings are you attending this summer?
