While some couples provide a wedding list to tell their guests what gifts they would like, it’s not always the case - and even when it is it can often be the case that other guests have bought everything on the list before you get chance to look at it.
Now that it’s been confirmed that all coronavirus restrictions are due to be lifted on July 19, and that means weddings can be attended by an unlimited amount of people, you may find yourself in need of a rather last minute wedding gift.
Here are 23 of the top things you can buy, from the traditional to the quirky, and including some that can be personalised for an extra special touch.
A great personalised gift for the happy couple. Buy them towels with the first letter of their married surname, or with the first letter of their first name so they’ll never have to argue over whose towel is whose.
Each towel is crafted from soft and snuggly cotton, making it highly absorbent and a pleasure to use.
An online only exclusive product. Available in white or silver grey and three different sizes; hand towel, bath towel and bath sheet.
Prices range from £7.50 to £19.50.
