From experience, creating a gift list can often be a daunting part of wedding planning when really it should be one of the most fun. Wandering the aisle with a scanner gun whilst navigating a department store can cause serious headaches, and quite frankly the technology is more than a little outdated. Plus, what happens if you’re already living together and don’t need another cutlery set, or you have taste that’s a little cooler than your average department store?
Enter Prezola, a trailblazer of a service who are taking gift list-ing to a whole new level and are re-inventing the experience for modern couples. Of course they offer all the gift list essentials (and 30,000 of them at that) but they also cater to your personal taste and unique story. Not only will you find items that reflect your interests from tech to travel to wine and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, there’s also gorgeous home decor from over 300 of the best homeware brands, and if it appeals, you can also ask your guests to contribute to your honeymoon fund, favourite charity, or even cash to put towards something special. Added to that, you can add in any product from any retailer if it’s not part of their own curation. As personal as it gets, right?!
And because choice is at the very core of Prezola’s user experience, Mr STG and I were asked to to go fantasy gift list shopping for our own apartment, and for anything else that appealed to our exceedingly good taste! Reason no. 18342 why I love my job…
Choosing items for our apartment
Some of you may have seen pictures of our apartment already on Instagram. It’s a former piano factory with urban views over London and has a ‘warehouse’ feel (you can see a glimpse of it up there at the top of the post). Our interiors style is a combination of minimalism, pop art, a love of design and typography, and an urban yet cosy feel – a real mix I know!
Our list is filled with some interiors decor that I frankly have to have for our flat, as well as some amazing cookware (for suppers à deux and dinner parties), some fun bar accessories (we are partial to an Aperol Spritz or three), our favourite board games, art, books, some sailing action… the list goes on! Have a look at my page to see all our choices or have a quick glimpse of our absolute faves below.
