The Wedding gift list can be a bone of contention when it comes to some couples and guests. Lots of couples don’t like to ask for a present, while guests still want to buy them something to celebrate their wedding. Some couples will stick to the standard department store gift list, while others will look for something a bit more creative and imaginative. If you are one of those couples then we have the perfect gift list for you today. Prezola, pride themselves on offering that something different when it comes to wedding gift lists. With a cool collection of stylish items from across the high street, Prezola is the clear winner when it comes to giving your wedding couple something they will treasure forever.
‘It’s absolutely acceptable nowadays to stray from the traditional gift registry and include quirkier, more personality-led presents to wish newlyweds well on the start of their life together. In fact, Ali Beaven, founder and Creative Director of Prezola, has built a company around just that – offering couples a gift list service with a huge choice of both high street and boutique brands, with space for other sought-after items too if they’re not already on the site. Have a look at Ali’s pick of the more unusual, off-kilter pieces available at Prezola.’
