The perfect wedding gift for…

1. The Free Spirits

Only they could effortlessly manage to throw together a wedding that is elegant, breezy and perfect. This Charlotte dinnerware from Michael Devine captures that easy spirit with its lovely floral imagery, which is hand-painted by artisans in France and trimmed with 24-carat gold. $165 for a dinner plate;


2. The Design Lovers2-Wine-rack

Not just any tchotchke will do for this couple’s chicly decorated abode. Impress them with your equally good taste by gifting them this brilliantly designed steel wine rack from Alessi that resembles a wavy ribbon. A nice bottle of wine to fill it with wouldn’t hurt either. $500; from


 3. The Wine Geek

What better way to keep the party going after the wedding than with a fantastic bottle of champagne? The Fat Cork wine club will send either two, three or six bottles of champagne every other month to the couple — just make sure to secure an invite to their next dinner party. $99 for two bottles every other month; from

4. The Bed Heads4-Bed-Heads

We spend one third of our lives in bed (and newlyweds may spend even more time than that!) so a high-quality set of pillows is key. If you really want the best, Sferra’s goose down pillows are the fluffiest, coziest, most luxurious pillows on the market. Sweet dreams! $895 for a queen-sized pillow; from

Planning a wedding is stressful and doing it on top of a full-time job is nearly impossible.

A wedding is an opportunity for a woman to feel like a real-life princess. And like a princess, she’s going to be photographed a whole lot. Why not give her a professional makeup artist like Stephen Keyes for the big day? He will illuminate her beauty and make her more than ready to face the cameras. $1,500; from

10. The Dreamers10-The-Dreamers

This is a couple whose vivid imagination carries them through the toughest times. They may not be able to ever visit space themselves, but this lamp, which was inspired by the cosmos, emits the same light as a nebula cloud, reminding them to always reach for the stars. $1,000; from
