So you’ve been invited to a wedding. You know the couple, and you know that they’re pretty darn difficult to shop for. You see, they’re not the typical young newlyweds trying to furnish their first apartment with their wedding gifts. Perhaps this couple has been together for a long time, and their home is already filled with everything they need. Or even worse, they’re trying to combine two households worth of possessions into one—which means that the last thing they need is a third set of wine glasses, or another stylish vase to go with their dozen other stylish vases. You’ve also decided that giving them cash is just not personal enough.
Which leaves you in a quandary. What do you get the couple that has everything? We think you should get them a fluted pedestal. Here’s why:
- There’s always something around the house that needs to take “pride of place” for a while, and a fluted pedestal provides that perfect showcasing space. At first it might be the bride and groom statuettes from their wedding cake—or a stylish vase(!) that they picked up in Morocco on their honeymoon. Later on it might be the equestrian statue that he created in his first post-retirement art class, or a bowl of brightly colored flowers from her cutting garden.
- Our stately columnar pedestal is available in either solid wood, with an elegant cherry finish, or a clear crystal column that will match the color scheme in any room. Since you know the couple well, you can determine which material will best match their décor.
- No one else would ever think of buying a fluted pedestal for a wedding present. This means that the gift will be both memorable and an excellent topic of conversation for your next dinner party—whether it’s at their house or yours.
So think beyond the standard wedding gifts and get them something they will use for years to come—and remember you for every time they place something new on top of it.
