Finding the perfect wedding gift isn’t always easy. Something that is unique to the Bride and Groom, when they do not have a traditional wedding gift list.

Those gifts containing alcohol

I love a nice glass of champagne and I think it can be a great gift, while looking through the GiftsOnline4U website I came across some personalised drink bottles, with lovely pewter labels. You can add your own personal message to the bottle, such a lovely idea.

Gifts for your wedding party

When I got married almost 7 years ago, we only had a very small wedding party, which meant we didn’t have to buy too many gifts for people. But the few gifts I did buy, were not very personal to the people receiving the them. GiftsOnline4U offer a lovely range of gifts for your wedding party, I have picked out a couple of different items for your Grooms party. Cufflinks seem to be a standard gift for the Groom to give to his party on the morning of the wedding to go with their suits, but these personalised ones are lovely. Then during the speeches it is traditional that you give gifts to each person in your wedding party. Maybe you could choose a pocket watch or a hip flask something that they are able to keep and treasure.

Personalised Wedding Gifts from GiftsOnline4UIf you are looking for gifts for other members of the wedding party there is lots of choose from. Gifts for Brides, Grooms, Bridesmaids, Ushers, Mother of Bride, Mother of the Groom, Father of the Bride, Father of the Groom, just about everyone who is in your bridal party. Pop over to see what they have to offer you.

I was kindly sent a bottle of personalised prosecco that was beautifully personalised with one of the pewter labels, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the item. A 750ml bottle of prosecco which arrived well packaged, so well that I had to get the scissors out on the polystyrene to even get to the bottle. I’ve popped it in the fridge to enjoy on our wedding anniversary. I will be keeping the bottle on the dresser with all of my other keepsakes. Thank you GiftsOnline4U, I’m really looking forward to a nice cold glass of fizz.

Beautiful floating lockets – Pendique Lockets Review

Pendique Lockets started when their creator Nicola wanted to design handmade jewellery, and began selling items on eBay. Nicola then set up a jewellery bead store to allow people to buy items to create and design their own jewellery.

As people’s love for unique personalised items emerged over the last few years, Nicola fell in love with floating glass lockets. After months of searching for high quality items, Nicola was able to launch Pendique Lockets – your very own unique pendant lockets.

Pendique Locket Review

I have seen a few different locket style necklaces available, while searching on line for various unique gifts. Pendique Lockets offfer something a bit different. Their lockets come in different shapes and sizes. Plus they are all great value for money.

Nicola got in contact with me, asking if I would like to see one of her lockets. Of course I would! They are beautiful. I went on line to choose what I would like even looking at Pendique Lockets on Instagram, as I just could not decide what to choose.

My Pendique Locket

Pendique Lockets Review

After quite some time looking at the different options, I chose the medium size rose gold locket, with 20inch rose gold snake chain. When it came to choosing the charms, it took me ages. I loved so many of the different charms, little cupcakes, star signs, wedding items, animals, christmas. The list was endless.

The wedding charms are lovely. They would make a wonderful gift for your bridesmaids, or even for yourself as a lasting memory for your day.

Pendique Locket Review

I really like having something that represents my beautiful little family. So I chose the infinity symbol, to show our family being continuous, so full of love and happiness. I then opted to birth stone crystals. February’s purple Amethyst for both mine and my Hubby’s birthday, July’s red ruby for my Son, Septembers blue sapphire for our wedding anniversary and then Octobers pink for the tourmaline stone. Along with an extra charm window. My delightful daughter ran off with her pink crystal, and since then I have not been able to find it, lost in the abyss of the playroom. I shall be ordering another one to complete my locket.

My Pendique Lockets Review

My beautiful locket arrived, wrapped in tissue paper, and in a lovely gift box. I love it when items arrive beautifully gift wrapped. It makes a wonderful first impression of the item you are about to open and enjoy.

I was a little bit worried about the colour of the rose gold, because sometimes it can look a bit cheap. However, this was just perfect a real rose gold colour that worked beautiful with my chosen charms and window frame.

Pendique Lockets Review

It’s great that I ordered the window frame to go with my locket, because it means I can change it. I am able to remove the window frame easily, giving a real floating look to my locket. It looks fabulous up against my block colour clothes. Next winter it will be firm favourite with my much loved black roll neck jumper. Changing the look of the locket depending on my mood.

I love my new Pendique Locket, it’s stylish, unique and completely personalised to me. I going to have to order one for my bestie before she steals it from me.
