The White Company Wedding Gift ListThe old gift list conundrum was deciding which of your favourite stores to host your wedding list, when there are just so many to choose from.
Since 2010 Prezola has been changing all that with over 30,000 gifts from 300 fabulous brands to choose from, covering the length and breadth of the High Street alongside lifestyle brands, experience days, charity donations and cash gifts. You can even mix in a Honeymoon fund that’s not tied to any specific travel agent.
This month I’ve been delighted to work closely with one of all my all-time favourite retail brands, The White Company, as we launch their official Wedding Gift List service. It’s been an absolute delight to hand pick over 1,000 of their gorgeous products to be featured in an exclusive wedding list edit on site here at Prezola. Frankly I want it all and I’ve been hopeless at editing down the selection, coming home from The White Company HQ laden down with impulse buys!
So, who better to curate a collection of perfect wedding gifts from The White Company other than their very own founder, Chrissie Rucker MBE?
In my column this month, Chrissie shares with us her ten favourite gift list items. But be warned; you’ll want them all!
This French-inspired glass vase has a wonderful rustic-chic look and is perfect for showcasing your favourite long-stem flowers or creating a contemporary display with blossom-covered twigs in the living room or hallway. Designed by glassware specialists LSA and expertly mouth-blown in Poland from heavyweight soda lime glass, the tall vase features soft rolled edges with a lovely bottle-shaped neck. Available in two different sizes.
We think there's no other bedding indulgence that beats this incredibly luxurious featherweight-cashmere collection. Whisper-soft against your skin, it features a stunning all-over ribbed texture and is gorgeously finished with a deep, double-knit border. Presented in a suitably beautiful white box, it also makes a wonderful gift to treasure. The double-sided, ribbed cushion cover with a lovely plain-knit envelope closure finishes the look perfectly.
A beautiful addition to our bestselling stoneware collection, we absolutely love our new oven dishes. Perfect for cooking hearty shepherd's pies and lasagne or serving salads and nibbles, this deep family sized dish is made for us in Portugal from a special robust clay that's resistant to scratching, and features a hand-painted pale grey trim. Like all our stoneware, it's also dishwasher, microwave and freezer-proof and makes a great gift when paired with our Small Heart Oven Dish from the same collection.
Step out of the shower in five star style with this fabulous white dressing gown, which is made of beautifully textured cotton waffle on the outside and soft cotton towelling on the inside. With cosy patch pockets, a wide collar and tie belt, the robe is the perfect partner for our unisex waffle slippers.
Celebrating outdoors? This chunky champagne flute is just the thing when you want to crack open the bubbly but you're afraid to take your more delicate champagne glasses outside. Inspired by a French antique flute, our Tuscany champagne glass is individually mouth-blown with a soft rounded rim and relaxed rustic feel.
This lovely chunky photo frame is made in Italy using local ayous wood that's painted in soft matte grey with subtle curved edges and comes with a high quality mount. The window is acrylic, which gives you a lightweight, non-glare and non-breakable way to display six of your favourite 5x7 - photos. Also available a 12 aperture.
Any home baked cake will look spectacularly delicious on this lovely glass cake stand - baking imperfections included. Hand blown in Poland using the finest quality glass, the pedestal cake stand has a wonderfully deep glass dome lid to accommodate even the most ambitious cake creations and toppings.
A gorgeous gift for every wedding, this pure linen cushion cover is both symbol and labour of love. It's hand embroidered for us in Vietnam, with three hearts formed of intricate French knots, shadow stitch and embroidered leaves, neatly framed with a small Oxford border.
Perfect for creating a 'family storybook' display on a sideboard or mantelpiece, the classic frame works well in a mix-and-match group as they do individually on a desk or wall mounting portrait or landscape.
These pure cotton towels are made using clever 'low twist' technology to make them feel thicker and softer than normal, yet beautifully lightweight, absorbent and fast drying. Exclusive to us in the UK, hydrocotton towels will stay beautifully soft and supple no matter how often you wash them. Available in white and nude.
