Who doesn't love a wedding? A huge occasion for all involved, weddings are the perfect opportunity to show the newly-wed couple just how much you care. Picking a meaningful gift that they can cherish for years to come is a great way to wish the new couple good luck on the start of their new lives together. We think the best gifts are the ones that are high-quality, sustainable and ethical.

With the incredible range of ethically made goods now available, you will be spoilt for choice! Whether you're searching for something one-of-a-kind or on the hunt for a more traditional gift, we're here to help you find the perfect sustainable wedding gift for everyone in your life...
Gifting a new couple with some luxuriously soft bedding is always a great idea! We love quilts because they can be used year-round (either on their own or as an extra layer) and add that extra layer of cosiness to your home. Our Kantha Quilts are designed by us in our Margate studio before being lovingly handmade in Southern India. Each quilt is hand block printed using an ancient technique that originated in India before being carefully hand stitched into place. Made from premium 100% Indian cotton and chemical-free dyes, these quilts get softer with every wash. Our Kingfisher print is perfect for lovebirds with its joyful print and colourful colour palette reminiscent of Indian summers. Complete the gift with the matching pillow cases and you're sure to delight the newly weds with this practical, luxurious gift!
Looking for a unique gift? We love giving unique homeware pieces as wedding gifts to truly commemorate a special day with something one-of-a-kind for the couple to enjoy everyday in their home. We often opt for something high-impact like a large piece of wall decor or a rug. Our Kenyan Wall Hangings make excellent gifts as they can be used as either a rug or a wall hanging. An excellent conversation starter, these eye-catching pieces are sure to spark many a discussion. Each one is hand woven in Kenya by our friend Julious who is incredibly passionate about keeping the art of weaving alive. We think our Fig Eater design is perfect, featuring a beautiful bird feasting on a fig tree. Figs are widely considered a symbol of love, making this the ideal gift for the lovebirds!
Practical gifts don't have to be boring! A new set of place mats and coasters is a great gift for a newly-wed couple who are bound to be entertaining their friends and family in the coming months and years. We love to pick something with lots of personality, which is another reason we often opt for handmade items as they are far more unique than anything mass-produced. Our Rwandan place mats and coasters come in a range of colourful designs that can be beautifully mixed and matched to create a completely unique set. Each piece is carefully handwoven from hardwearing materials that will last a lifetime. We love pairing our Luna Place Mats with our Terrazzo Coasters to create a playful, colourful tablescape.
If you're looking for a gift that is sure to impress but won't break the bank, we recommend finding a good quality chopping board. Everyone loves receiving great kitchenwares, especially if the newly-weds like to whip up a storm in the kitchen! The key to finding a fantastic chopping board is paying attention to the material it is made from as well as finding one that is hand crafted. We prefer a wooden chopping board as they are more sustainable and last forever as long as they are taken care of properly. A beautiful chopping board is a great addition to any kitchen as not only can it be used for preparing food, it can also be used as a cheese board, serving platter or charcuterie board. Hand carved in Kenya, our Olive Wood Chopping Board is the ideal gift. Made from sustainable Wild Olive wood, each board is carefully hand carved. With a convenient hook-able handle, the timeless design is bound to compliment any and all home decor styles.
