It's officially summer. And While the weather might not have gotten the memo just yet, you'll probably have a number of summer weddings lined up nonetheless. Enter: the best wedding gift ideas to shop.

Personally? As excited as we are to watch our loved ones tie the knot, the panic of getting the perfect gift is starting to set in.

If you’re lucky enough to have received a wedding registry list from the couple in question, then there’s very little to worry about. However, if like us, you’ve arrived at said list and all that remains is a plain old stainless steel saucepan (not quite the meaningful wedding gift you had in mind), or, you just feel like making an impact this wedding season, there’s a few other ways to show just how much you care.

According to luxury lifestyle brand founder, Elizabeth Scarlett Petrides choosing the perfect gift for newlyweds isn't something you should take lightly - but that doesn't mean it has to be overly-complicated - it's the little touches that matter! "As a once-in-a-lifetime occasion, weddings call for a gift with a little more meaning, that will come to hold special memories and be used time and time again", she says, "whether it’s to mark the engagement, hen do or the big day - I always think personalisation adds the perfect touch to elevate a wedding gift. A monogrammed pillowcase, special framed piece or even a beautiful piece of tableware painted with the wedding date is a beautiful way to transform a traditional wedding gift into a future heirloom.”

When it comes to wedding gift ideas, there are lots of options that you can go for. You can take the classic route and treat the soon-to-be newlyweds to some stylish new homeware. Or, if the happy couple are the sentimental type, you can't go wrong with a photo frame for them to display a picture from their special day.

We've included a range of wedding gift ideas to suit everyone's budget, so you don't have to end up spending a fortune. There are a few gendered products in this roundup, but the majority can be bought for any couple, however you identify, because love is love and everyone deserves a special gift on their big day.
