As we approach the height of wedding season, it can become more and more difficult to come up with unique and personal wedding gift ideas that don’t cost the earth. Here at Cobbles & Clay, we have the answer!
Create your own wedding gift for the happy couple
What would be better than a personalised gift that you have created yourself for the happy couple? Painting a piece of pottery in our café will remind them of their wedding day and bring back many happy memories. Whether it’s a pair of His and Hers mugs or a beautiful teapot they can share, it’s the perfect way to show how much you really care.
Wedding gifts from children
If you’d rather contribute to the honeymoon fund or buy something off the wedding list, you could give a piece of hand-painted pottery as a gift from your children. Hand and foot prints of little ones always make a lovely keepsake. Or just let them get creative and make something with their own stamp on it that the couple can treasure.
Give the gift of a unique pottery wedding guest book
Brides to be (because let’s face it, it’s usually them doing the organising) are always looking for creative and unique ways of doing things that will make their wedding stand out from the crowd, from the table plan to the guest book. A great gift idea (which also works well for birthdays and christening) is an unglazed piece of pottery that can be signed by guests and then go into our kiln after the big day covered in lovely personal messages. It makes for a fun activity on the day and gives the couple something that they can actually use. Jill can create a beautiful centrepiece for guests to sign around like this one she did for a recent Baptism.
Wife-to-be gift for creative grooms
A hint for all you grooms in waiting out there – if you think all you have to do is turn up on the big day, think again. Make sure you don’t forget about a thoughtful gift for your wife-to-be to open on the morning of the big day. If she gets cold feet, it will persuade her to turn up! She already has an expensive piece of jewellery and flowers coming out of her ears, so why not show you care by getting creative and painting her something that she can treasure forever.
We always have a huge range of pieces available to pick up and paint in the café, but if you’re looking for something extra special just let us know and we’ll try locate it for you.
