The best vintage-inspired gifts on for under £50

I’ve always been a big fan of It’s a great place to find quirky homewares and clothes that are hard to find… well, on the high street! We had a honeymoon gift list. It was absolutely wonderful, but we didn’t have a registry full of pretty things – so I decided to make my fantasy gift list to see what I would have wanted if we’d done things differently.

For brides and grooms, is a great choice for a gift list as you can very easily add things, and also there are some fab settings that help you to narrow down your choices by room and price. I’m not a big believer that gifts have to be extravagant or expensive, it’s more the thought that counts. I like the idea that guests choose gifts they hope you’ll use for years to come, or that when they come to your house there will be something you’re proud of that they bought you on such a special day. So I’ve put together an epic list of my favourite choices under £50 to give you some ideas if you’re struggling with what to choose!
