'tis wedding season! July 30 2012

With August just around the corner, wedding season is in full blow! The sun is shining, the sky is blue and the weather is lovely for a wedding, and that means that many of us are on the hunt for that perfect wedding gift. This can be quite the challenge. However, we at Walrus are aiming to make it as quick and easy as possible so that you can get back to enjoying the sunshine!

We have some wonderful new pieces in the store that would make lovely wedding gifts and we are excited to share them with you!

Here are some of my personal favourites in this wedding gift round-up!

Teroforma

Teroforma is a company that strives and succeeds at creating beautiful objects and products by working alongside hand-picked designers from around the globe. By rejecting the mass-produced aesthetic, and focusing on true craftsmanship, Teroforma creates thoughtful objects inspired by the people and places they love.

Avva Tumbler (clear - set of 2) - ($56)

Avva Tumbler (lantern green - set of 2) - ($56)
These tumblers are specifically designed for whisky, however they are perfect for any of your favourite spirits! The Avva tumblers are also available in a set thoughtfully designed for the whisky lover, seen below. The set includes 2 mouth-blown Avva tumblers (dishwasher safe) and 6 Whisky Stones beverage cubes.

Whisky Lover set - ($69)

If you love the Whisky Stones beverage cubes on their own, we also offer them here at Walrus in a lovely set of 9! They are milled in Vermont by the oldest soapstone workshop in the US and they make a great gift for any whisky lover.

Whisky Stones Beverage Cubes - ($25)

Another great gift idea for the couple that love to spend time in the kitchen, or for those that love to entertain in style, are the Avva S+P Mills. Designed for salt and pepper with ceramic grinders, these mills are versatile enough to accommodate many of your favourite spices (I suggest: sea salt + Herbes de Provence or black pepper + coriander seeds) yum!

Raumgestalt


Raumgestalt is another one of my go-to companies for the perfect house-warming or wedding gift. They are a German company that designs, produces and sources intelligent and high quality objects for the home.

Wood Boards - ($35 - $125)
Mortar + Pestle - ($96)

Board (Oiled Oak) + Dipping Dish ($95 - $120)

The Raumgestalt Board + Dipping Dish are not only lovely to look at, they are actually a smart and practical addition to your kitchen. The board is made of oak and is oiled so that it is food-safe and it comes with a ceramic dish that features carvings at the bottom intended for you to grate or rub anything from garlic or ginger to chillies and herbs in order to infuse whatever kind of oil you wish to dip your bread into.


Henderson Dry Goods

We recently received quite a treat from Henderson Dry Goods designer Alex Henderson, a wonderful variety of her exquisite wood-framed mirrors. Available in both North American Black Walnut or Alder wood, these mirrors are a work of art and would make an incredible gift!

Long Wall Mirror - ($475)

Oval Wall Mirror - ($275 - $475)

Round Wall Mirror - ($275 - $475)

I hope that this wedding gift round-up was helpful! Come on in and see these and many other great gift ideas for the season.
I wish you all a happy summer!
