6 Quirky and Unique Gifts for the Modern Bride-to-be

Something old, something new, something borrowed or something blue.  While we certainly don’t have anything “old” or “borrowed” in our range, we certainly have a whole host of quirky “something new”s for brides-to-be throughout this year’s wedding season.  If you’re looking for an inspired and original wedding gift for a bride with a quirky and unusual taste, then you’ve certainly come to the right place!  Here at Cuckooland, we’re experts in unique and unusual gifts-for-her, so be sure to have a good scroll through our range; you’re sure to find something that stands out from the standard silverware-and-dinner-sets fare, and serves as a great memento of the big day!

Orla Kelly Garden Range

After the wedding and the honeymoon, there’s a good chance that the newlyweds will be moving into their own little love-nest.  And, if they’re lucky, there’s a good chance that the little love-nest will have a little garden.  And if we know anything about moving into a new house, it’s that it’s not guaranteed that the previous tenants of that little love-nest will have left the garden in a fantastic condition!  The quirky Orla Kelly range of garden essentials – including everything from tools and an apron, to pretty planting pots – is the perfect gift for an outdoorsy bride who’s looking forward to starting her new life with her new family, in a new house!

Amore Heart Toast Rack

After the fleeting romance of the wedding has died down and the happy couple have put a mortgage down on their first house, they’re going to be waking up next to each other every morning – for better or for worse!  If you’re on a budget, or you simply don’t know the bride all that well, then the Amore Heart toast rack is a powerful gift for a low, low price, which will bring back the happy memories of the big day every morning at breakfast!  This durable, nickel toast rack is also just as sturdy as it is pretty, so it’s bound to keep the newlyweds smiling for many years to come.

The Mighty Purse

A new life means a new bag!  And what Cuckooland “gifts for her” list would be complete without the Mighty Purse?  Anybody who’s happened upon the Cuckooland blog before knows that we can’t get enough of the Mighty Purse!  Coming in a number of colours and fashions in both clutch purse and handbag design (all of which are trés chic, by the way), what separates the Mighty Purse from the rest of the crowd is its quirky little secret; it has a phone charger on the inside!  With the ability to charge some of the most popular brands of Smartphone and tablet (and a handy adaptor available for Apple products), what better gift for the modern bride-to-be than the ability to charge her gadgets on the fly?  Perfect for a ‘snap-happy’ bride on her wedding day. And we can guarantee that the groom will be “borrowing” the charger when they’re out and about!
