Decorating Diva: Home decor wedding gifts
Welcome to Decorating Diva, where every week we share fresh, fun ways to update your home and spice up your living space! It’s officially wedding season, and chances are you’ll be attending your fair share of ceremonies this summer. Not only does a deluge of “I do’s” mean buying a plethora of party frocks for the various nuptials you’ll be witnessing, but it also means getting gifts for all the happy couples you know. To help make the present-buying process easier, we’ve put together a list of unique home décor wedding gifts sure to make any bride and groom swoon.
Grill & planter
Perfect for the foodie bride and groom, this double-duty product is both an herb planter and a grill (black + blum, $124). It looks like a pretty terracotta pot, but the top comes off to reveal a BBQ grill underneath. We love the convenience of this item – use the herbs you grow to season the food you cook – and it makes a stylish accent for any countertop or balcony.
If the couple in question likes to entertain, then they're sure to fall in love with this retro beverage dispenser perfect for serving a party's worth of lemonade – or any signature sip of choice (Anthropologie, $198). The sunny yellow hue makes this as much a decorative item as it is a practical addition to any social gathering.
We couldn't resist the playful nature of these unique vases – a great gift for any unconventional couples on your wedding gift list. The whimsical vase (MoMa Store, $40) features a chalkboard front that can be used for anything from messages and reminders to drawings and doodles. The removable glass tube at the top houses a single bloom.
It's not every day that a piece this sleek and stylish comes along, so if you're looking for something for the couple who has everything, consider this modern multi-functional table (Room & Board, $224). The molded plywood table comes in walnut or white oak finish and also houses a magazine rack. You can even turn it on its end and use it as a taller table in a compact space.
