11 Practical Wedding Gifts Your Friends Will Love

It’s no secret cash is king when it comes to wedding gifts (77% of Irish couples revealed it’s their gift of choice in our 2016 survey) but sometimes it can be nice to buy someone an actual present, something they can have for years to come. Practical gifts may seem a little on the dull side but these are the things you’re hard pushed to splurge on yourself so some of these luxury goodies are ideal pressies and will really be appreciated! Think a beautiful throw, an excellent quality duvet, a Nutribullet for smoothie fans, a timeless La Creuset kettle for the kitchen, some brilliant knives or a wooden chopping board that will be used time and time again (opt for personalised for that extra special touch). Or if you’re looking for something romantic, a picnic basket (The Wedding Shop have an amazing selection) is a sweet idea outdoorsy types will love! If you’re going the Gift List route, some of these items are definitely worth adding to the list – check out our top picks below…
