Well, good day to you gorgeous readers and I hope that you’re having a day that’s full of positives.
Today, I’m here to talk about wedding gift lists and to share some fabulous ideas from our friends at Prezola, the wonderful online gift list. If you’d like to include a memorable experience day (or two!) on your list along with matching gifts, here are some altogether brilliant suggestions.
Before we start, let’s just talk about experience days and why they’ve become such a popular addition to gift lists. Firstly, these days give you the chance to do something that you’ll love and whether you’re a committed foodie or an animal lover, there’s something suitable that you can add to your list. Sharing an experience day with your partner is always going to be a great idea and it’s also fantastic to have something to look forward to after the wedding – an opportunity to get away from the day-tod-day routine and experience togetherness.
Prezola have a superb selection of experience days on offer and lots of them are also exclusive to Prezola so you know that you’re getting something really special. From your perspective, it’s super easy to add an experience to your list and for your guests, they’re equally simple to buy. A number of experiences are also available for ‘group gifting’ so that multiple guests can contribute towards your big day out. Utterly brilliant, right?
OK, so let’s look at the experiences themselves along with some gifts that you can add to your list to give you a tangible reminder of your day out or to simply indulge your passion.
Let’s start with some foraging shall we? Any chance get outside and into the great outdoors and we’re in. We adore the idea of joining the Totally Wild team and foraging for and then cooking our lunch outdoors. Awake the adventurer inside you and get some preparation in for the next time you go camping 😉
Us Brit’s love tea (it’s a staple part of our morning/afternoon/evening routine, isn’t it?) so what about trying something different like a tea blending workshop for two with Bird and Blend Tea Co. Not only do you get to sample an array of teas and tea cocktails, you’ll also be able to blend your own tea to take home with you. If you love tea for two, why not add a Brew Control glass teapot to your list so that you can enjoy your personal blend in style? I also love the stylish Hammershøi teapot and the Edited teabag squeezer also appeals to my neat-and-tidy side!
Known as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’, the Eden Project is a must-visit so why not take some time out to discover this incredible location together with this experience day? You can also add lots of gifts to your list that celebrate your love of the great outdoors such as a floral picnic blanket and a bee-inspired picnic bag. If you’d like to bring the outside in, and be reminded of your experience then you’ll love this Canopy closed garden from LSA International that’s been designed in collaboration with the Eden Project.
If you’d like to get up close and personal with some of the cutest animals around, how about an Animal Encounter at Flamingo Land? Choose between spending the day with meerkats, penguins or lemurs and get involved with feeding as well as spending time with the animals in their own environment. Then, you could add a few animal-inspired details to you home such as this cheetah bedding set, this cool zebra vase and this safari style mug.
Should you be passionate about pizza, then this pizza making masterclass at La Cucina Caldesi absolutely has to feature on your list. You’ll learn how to make pizza dough from scratch before baking your own fab focaccia and tasting everything you’ve made (and more!). Then, to develop your new-found skills further, you could add this La Hacienda pizza oven to your list! You’ll also need the Saturday Pizzas cookbook, a Kinuku pizza board and a Joseph Joseph disc pizza cutter will all help you serve your creations in style.
Back to the great outdoors, any of you ever fancied paddleboarding? What a hoot that would be and one glorious experience to boot with the majestic Loch Lomond as your backdrop. After all that exercise, you could follow up the next day with a luxury champagne cruise for 2 around the Loch (before returning to your nearby, woodburning log-cabin – BLISS).
Finally, how about creating your own personalised rum with tastings and cocktails for two at Laki Kane? Taste your way through the history of this delicious spirit and make your own blend to take home. What a treat! Continue your love affair with all things rum-based with this art deco cocktail shaker and this punchbowl, which comes with a generously sized ladle! You could even add your own rum to this Mixology rum decanter and then sip your blend from these rum balloon tumblers.
These are just a few of our hand-picked Prezola experiences – there are so many more for you to explore. You might also want to make time to browse their full selection of gifts (over 50,000 so make sure you’ve got plenty of time to indulge!), simply visit their website.
