The New Gift List Rules

It's not just about toasters and tea sets. Stop ticking boxes and think about what you both really want.

1. Start a tradition

Mark married life with a new activity. Set up a gift list with Prezola and guests can each put £25 towards a pair of bikes. Sonnet Springtime bike, £575,

2. Invest in future classics

Ask for items that will appreciate in value. This light by Lee Broom is made from an antique crystal decanter. Tulip Decanter light, £240,

3. Don't apologise for your taste!

Shun classic crockery and towels, and pick what reflects your personality - colour, pattern, kitsch! Baboon pitcher, £118,
