Perhaps you want to give them something that caters to their shared interests, spruces up the home, or livens up date night. We have you covered and put together a comprehensive gift guide for the couple planning their wedding.
Modern design and technology come together in this sleek LED table charging lamp from West Elm. It features a wireless charging pad for smart phones and built-in USB port, which allows to power up multiple devices at once. Now the only question is, “On whose side of the bed will it go?”
If there ever is a time to give personalized home decor, it’s when a couple is madly in love and about to start the rest of their lives together. A romantic reminder to when it all began, this personalized woodcut city map available at Uncommon Goods is a work of art your friends will enjoy for years to come.
Your friends consider themselves oenophiles and are always looking for new ways to indulge in their wine obsession. The Anytime Class Certificate from NYC Wine Company is the essential gift for these two. They get to choose the class with offerings ranging from Big Bold Reds to wines by country (Italy, France, Portugal, Spain, Hungry, and Croatia) and geographical terrain (islands, volcanos, and mountains.)
They are the couple that invites the crew over just about every weekend for drinks and games. As hosts with most, they treat entertaining like a form of art. The dragon cocktail picks set from the Metropolitan Museum of Art will make a beautiful addition to their home bar.
Nowadays photos are saved in digital form on phones, computers, and clouds. But there are captured moments so special they deserve a more tangible existence. With the Fujifilm Instax Share SP-2 Mobile Printer, your friends can print out their favorite photos right from their phone.
Did your couple bond over their love of music? Then they will be thrilled to receive a one-of-a-kind wall clock made from a repurposed record handmade by artist Jeff Davis available at Uncommon Goods. Choose an album that plays to their musical sensibilities – genres include Rock, Soul, Jazz, and 80s.
For the cultured pair, a trip to the museum doubles as the ideal date. Bring art (and passion!) into their lives with a gift membership to one of NYC’s world-renowned museums. The MET is great because of its expansive collection – there’s something for everyone. But do some research to find an institution that matches your friends’ interests. Standard perks include free-admission, exclusive access to exhibitions, members-only hours, and invitations to special events.
No, you haven’t had too much to drink. These beer glasses from the MoMA are actually slanted at the top. Made in collaboration with professional brewers and mouth blown in Turkey, the design enhances the natural interplay between carbonation and color. A wonderful present for the high-brow beer drinking couple.
Your friend’s first date was over black truffle pasta and the rest is history. Enlighten their foodie knowledge with a gift certificate for Foods of NY Walking Tours. Together, they will experience the tastes specific to the city’s culinary destinations such as Little Italy, Chinatown, Greenwich Village, and Chelsea Market.
Why give just have any pressure cooker when you can give this Star Wars Instant Pot Duo 6-qt Pressure Cooker that looks like R2-D2? Exclusively at Williams Sonoma, it’s a must-have kitchen appliance for the couple that enjoys cooking together while embracing their inner Geek. Also available as Darth Vader, a Stormtrooper, and BB-8 in the case you are wondering.
When gift shopping for an engaged couple, it’s best to start with their shared interests and go from there. We hope this holiday gift guide points you in the direction to finding that just-right present to make your friends’ lives all the merrier.
