Gifts To Claim You Thought Of: Film Brides Edition
Registry or not, picking a gift for newlyweds is an unenviable task. Have you seen their Selfridges registry? Extortionate. Do they think you’re made of money? Not to mention the sheer audacity of a sans-registry wedding. Do they expect you to conjure a gift from thin air? Distant relative or total stranger, gifting for a wedding is a feat more challenging than most but one we think we’ve got pretty taped.
'Already Married To Her Bestie'
It’s a scene straight out of Bride Wars. A long time coming but they’ve both been in complete denial – planning their special days since before they can remember but conveniently forgetting the crucial element that is their partners. For the Kate Hudson to your Anne Hathaway, the perfect gift is the only way to cure this bestie breakup.
Trade Touti Bo’s bespoke initial rings with the bride-to-be for the ultimate symbol of friendship – and a subtle sign to the groom that this relationship is going to have to be roomy enough for the three of you. For an age-old friendship that can stand the test of time (and a good-natured joke), the Trophy Wife candle by Candlols is guaranteed to put a smile on her face and keep tensions down on the big day.

THE WEDDING PLANNER
She has more wedding binders than she can count and has orchestrated every single detail all the way to the number of steps it takes to reach the altar. Unless you have a never-failing knack for gifting (uh-uhm, we’re right here) one might say this makes scouting out a present ever so slightly intimidating. A perfectly complicated blend of Type A, optimist and whimsical day dreamer, you just may need a little helping hand.
From Annabel’s to the altar, she is a socialite and homemaker all in one stylishly put together package. The fur trimmed ‘Mrs _’ Loafers by Calitas make a seamless addition to a swooning bride’s wardrobe. And, as someone who appreciates a personal touch and is always the first to organize a social gathering, gifting doesn’t get more spot-on than a bespoke set of Personalized Notecards by Memo Press.

‘Maybe They Should Get Married in the Office’
The 9-to-5ers, the workaholics, the commuters who secretly live for the crammed end-of-day Central line. These career fiends share the joy of pencil pushing, deadlines, targets and now, each other. It really is a romance for the ages. But seriously, when satisfaction comes from smart negotiations and a quick closure, gifting is no easy feat.
While they turn down all your social invitations, they seem to gravitate to the pub for a post-work drink like a moth to a flame. Gift the groom a luxe cigar case from Bosquet Paris to give him a little extra credit in the office hierarchy. For the career-focused bride that likes to play as hard as she works, a personalized bottle of Lockdown Liquor makes a chic gift that fits seamlessly into that corner office she’s been eyeing.

‘Only In It For The Honeymoon’
This low-maintenance couple is always on the go. Think Sophie and Sky from Mamma Mia - head in the clouds, practically allergic to a day job and never without a trip on the cards. Their romance blossomed through a shared love of sunny holidays and life in the slow lane. Gifting for a minimalist whose ideal closet is a suitcase may be as big a challenge as they come.
A little but luxe present, Muga Chains Positano (Sun)glasses Chain is vibrant, unique and inspired by the chic Italian destination; the ultimate gift for the travel obsessed. An exclusive for The Go-To, this piece is crafted using carefully sourced glass beads on fine gold-plated wire. And for a bride who is more set on the honeymoon than her big day, the Spritz Swimsuit by The Refined Spirit makes an undeniably perfect gift.
