When it comes to choosing a wedding gift for your closest friends this summer, consider going beyond traditional wedding registry items and opting for something with a more personal touch.
Our Luster collection (shown above) includes American-made glass accents that are a lovely gift for the modern couple. Explore the Luster platter, bowl, vase and pendant lights, all hand-blown in a small studio in northeast Minneapolis, so you have a great story to share along with the gift.
Any piece of art that doubles as a fun activity is a welcome addition to a modern home. These Oak Balancing Blocks from Food 52 can encourage a new couple to create their own miniature sculptures and then place them on shelves or ledges as an artistic accent.
The Juxatposed Porcelain collection from Michele Varian is made of fine bone china that combines Eastern and Western design traditions to create a truly unique piece of dinnerware. This soup bowl is just one of a variety of pieces that create an eclectic look. You can explore the whole collection here.
The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) houses some exceptionally modern wedding gifts on their website for you to peruse. One of MoMA’s best-sellers? This manual coffee grinder. It grinds coffee to artisanal perfection and the piece is sure to be a conversation starter in a couple’s new home. Swoon.
A wedding gift that a couple can make its mark on is sure to stand out. A modern bar cart can be styled any way the newlyweds desire and it immediately makes a home feel more personal. Our Brixton bar cart features a sleek, modern design that complements any room and style.
We love the idea of wedding guests gifting an entire experience. Couples are able to set up an online registry through sites like Honeyfund, where they encourage guests to contribute to their wedding or honeymoon. As a guest, you can follow along with the couple’s updates as they travel and explore. A great way to reflect a couple’s unique style, Honeyfund can also be used for guests to contribute to the couple’s down payments or to their charity of choice. It’s a beautiful way to keep that wedding love going strong.
