Antique Lamps as a Wedding Gift
Wedding season is upon us, and not just that wedding.Â While certain high profile couples have asked for donations to their favourite charities instead of setting up aÂ wish list, there are plenty more who haven't.Â What's worse is, it's the ones that you are actually going to be invited, where presents will be required.Â Wedding lists from major stores certainly help with the perennial question of what to buy, but if the couple in question are close friends or relatives you may want to get something a little more personal or thoughtful than another toast rack.Â Besides does anyone have time to use toast racks these days?Â
Gifts with Heritage
One thing that the princess-in-waiting will probably not be short of is antiques.Â Her intended's family homes are stuffed full of them.Â But antiques can be a great and unique wedding gift for any bride and groom.Â Obviously if the couple you are buying for have no taste for such things, then they are not the best idea.Â But in terms of interior design an occasional antique can fit well into any home.Â If you know the couple well enough, then this kind of gift may just be the right one to surprise and delight.Â
Vintage or Antique?
Vintage lamps are generally the onesÂ reflecting theÂ different stylesÂ from the twentieth century, withÂ stylish designs from just about every decade of the 20thÂ century.Â If you are buying for a retro-chic lover, then the choices are wide.Â Design classics from the fifties, sixties and seventies are all good choices and should be very well received indeed.Â Antique lamps are the older styles from previous centuries and for couples who are already passionate about antiques, this is a good place to start the search.Âgoogle_ad_channel = "7940249670, " + AB_cat_channel + AB_unit_channel; google_language = "en"; google_ad_region = 'test';
