You’ve received their invite and you’re ready to go. You even have your outfit picked out, but you have no idea what to gift the couple. Thankfully, we’ve curated a luxurious wedding gift list to help. So put down the blender down and find something newly-weds will actually like.
Perfect for: tea time together
The couple’s sacrilegious mug-drinking is no more with the L’object Aegean teacup and saucer set. Inspired by the Aegean Sea, the two-piece Limoges porcelain ensemble is the ideal gift for those that know their Pu’erh from their Peppermint. Embellished with a 24k gold-plated scalloped border, this gift will make their afternoons just that little bit more special when sipping tea together.
Lane Crawford, HK$3,300
Perfect for: making their coffee-table look good
Recognised as one of the world’s best photojournalists, Steve McCurry — the man behind the green-eyed Afghan girl portrait — is known for his beautiful evocative pictures. Bringing together his finest work in a limited edition monograph of 3,300 copies, the oversized coffee-table book is likely to impress any photography buff. What’s more, it’s signed by the photographer and holds a signed McCurry print, which they can also frame and put up in their new home — two gifts in one.
Kelly & Walsh, HK$ 3,750
Perfect for: nice smells and good moods
As the newly-weds walk into their home as husband and wife, a warm fragrant home awaits when you gift them with the Cage Diffuser from Tom Dixon. The candle-powered table top turbine is engineered kinetically to propel scents as it spins from the simple warmth of a tea light. Three scents are available to choose including London (woody), Orientalist (floral) and Royalty (citrus) fragrances. Crafted in finely etched stainless steel, it also makes for a chic accessory that will add a modern edge to their home.

Perfect for: colourful dinner party organisers
Veer away from the registered silver flatware of norm and opt for something that will brighten up the couple’s table setting. A winning talking point for any dinner party, this contemporary Italian 24-piece flatware set features multi-coloured cutlery that is crafted with PVD-coated titanium and holds an iridescent quality to please the most colourful of personalities.

Perfect for: capturing adventures of married life
The Mavic 2 Zoom can document dynamic footage of the newly weds using a high-performance optical and digital zoom to capture moments closely. Redesigned with a more aerodynamic airframe, the drone can follow the couple at 44 miles per hour for 31 minutes in the air. It’s also the best wedding gift to travel with, so send them off on their honeymoon with a state-of-the-art foldable drone that fits in their carry on.
Perfect for: a post-wedding cheers
Unwinding with a glass of wine (or two) is effortless with a Coravin Model Two Elite. The revolutionary wine access system uses a needle to extract wine without ever having to uncork the bottle, which prevents oxidisation and preserves its flavour. Buy them a Coravin and not only will you have given them their best party trick yet, but you will also reduce any chance for red or white wine disagreements, as they can enjoy either without forcing down an entire bottle or limiting them to only one kind.
Perfect for: keeping wedding jewellery safe
Wish them double the amount of happiness with this beautifully crafted jewellery box from Shanghai Tang. Adorned with the symbol from Chinese lore for Double Happiness (囍), which is said to enhance the couple’s love and happiness, this medium-sized lacquer wood box is lined with soft micro fabric to protect and store all their wedding jewellery in style.

Perfect for: keeping ring fingers and hands clean/soft
The arid air from flying to and from their honeymoon may have left their hands rather dry; making this gift a rather intimate and caring one. The Aesop Reverence duet includes an exfoliating hand wash and nourishing hand balm formulated with a warm and woody scent that is suitable for all skin types too.
