From Heirloom to Home Décor: Wedding Gift Guide

From Heirloom to Home Décor: Wedding Gift Guide


Linen harbours a long history that dates back to the ancient Egyptians, who are believed to have been the first to cultivate flax plants, from which linen is made. Linen was held in the highest regard, being associated with purity and prosperity, and given the skill and time that goes into the labour of linen, it’s still very much superior to other fabrics and is prized for its natural beauty, durability, and versatility, unwavering throughout its history. 

The tradition of gifting a set of linens for someone's wedding has been around for centuries. In many cultures, it is custom to give newlyweds a gift of linens as a symbol of good luck and the hope that their marriage will be long-lasting and fruitful. Historically, linens were considered a luxury item and were often only owned by the wealthy. As such, gifting a set of linens was seen as a generous and thoughtful gesture. Linen bedding is still considered an investment, but given its durability credentials, will long out-live synthetic alternatives. 

Wedding season is edging ever nearer and if you’re stuck for gift ideas, then look no further. Practical, long-lasting but equally beautiful and thoughtful, gifting linens for newlyweds will no doubt be very well received. Whether you gift a bed linen bundle, plush cotton bath towels, table linens or pyjamas, we hope to inspire you with our curated edit of wedding gift ideas - aren’t those newlyweds lucky!
