It’s peak wedding season and our, ahem, award-winning lifestyle store is the place to go for stylish and extra special gifts for the happy couple. Whatever your budget, our edit of authentically Scandinavian gifts for their home and garden is brimming with items that are sure to serve as a memento of their big day and be cherished for years to come.
We don’t do shmaltzy here at NORSK, but we do deliver authentic, heartfelt sentiments and this Koselig card says it all. Perfect as an alternative wedding card that they will remember.
Talking of memories, why not enlarge one of your snaps from the wedding day, their hen or stag do (keep it clean!) or perhaps a picture of the couple in years gone by and gift it in this magnetic frame by Novoform. Crafted from smoked, oiled oak with a natural leather string, this would make for a truly thoughtful, and personal, gift.
Wedding gift lists traditionally go big on items for the marital home and if that’s the direction you’re going in, you’ve come to the right place. A set of our classic striped House Doctor cotton hand towels and bath towels are sure to go down a treat, while a set of distinctive dinnerware would be equally well received.
Our in-house NORSK brand of ceramics are, as you would expect, awash with Scandi style. Go for plates, bowls, mugs and carafes in our classic glossy Soho finish glaze; or opt for something a little more rustic with a set of plates, bowls and carafes in our unique matte speckled Triticale glaze.
From dinner to breakfast time, and we think our stoneware toast rack with vine handles is rather special. Crafted by potter Charlotte Storrs, who is local to NORSK in Oxfordshire, this unusual and beautifully crafted piece would make a lovely gift. What better to pair with your morning toast than a boiled egg? Our little stackable Egg Cubes crafted by Bruun in English Ash would be a fun little extra.
Accessories for the garden, balcony or terrace also make for ideal wedding gifts; especially when they can be moved indoors when the weather cools down and enjoyed year-round. Our Klippan lambs’ wool blankets are deliciously soft, lovingly crafted and – in our opinion – very special, and this classic striped design would suit all tastes.
The flicker of candlelight is undeniably romantic and a sculptural lantern will be treasured for many years. We have a lovely collection of House Doctor lanterns made from gorgeous natural materials; including our large bamboo Grome Lantern with its distinctive criss-cross pattern and our beautifully curved Balu Lantern. Both of which house the candle in glass containers, making them ideal for both indoors and out.
Snuggly blanket, tick, flickering lanterns, tick; why not complete the amorous setting for the newlyweds with a relaxing scent? Evoke memories of their honeymoon travels with the Golden Coast candle by P.F.Candles, scented with eucalyptus, sea salt, redwood and palo santo. Or opt for a gently scented glass diffuser by Danish brand Meraki which looks especially striking with its dried leaves, flowers and sticks.
Of course, after all the stress of planning a wedding, chances are that the newlyweds are craving nothing more than a weekend away. So why not club together and treat them to a grown-up getaway... à deux. Our cosy and super stylish Scandi summerhouse in Oxfordshire is the perfect place for a relaxing grown-up getaway. Even better? The NORSK café is just down the road!
