As wedding season seems to continue all year round, the struggle of trying to find original gifts or presents for couples or indeed the bridal party or family can be a frustrating task, especially when you really want to find something more thoughtful and unique (i.e not a toaster, photo frame or bottle of Champagne) but lucky for you, Not-Another-Bill have you completely sorted in this department, such a great concept and I was kindly gifted a surprise package myself which I thought I’d share!
Not-Another-Bill are stylish curators of tailored surprise gifts in the post either via a monthly subscription service or as a one off hand-picked luxury hamper. They aim to be the most unique gift service in t he world, whether it’s a gift subscription for the newly-weds to enjoy throughout their first year of blissful matrimony, something special to thank the ushers and bridesmaids or a beautifully curated hamper for the in-laws – with complete flexibility they provide a customised gift service like no other. All your gift giving dilemmas solved, basically and even better is they are offering London Bride readers £10 off a first subscription with special code BRIDE10.
SURPRISE FOR THE NEWLYWEDS
Their ‘surprise’ subscription service makes for the perfect wedding gift for newlyweds as you can choose to surprise them with a present, tailored to match their style preferences which you select, each month for 3 months up to a year. I love the idea that it’s something that continues for a couple of months or even well into their first year of marriage, rather than just a one off, the gift that keeps on giving! It would certainly make a very nice welcome back after the honeymoon when the back to reality blues kick in! They can even tailor the package for a 1st anniversary.

Who doesn’t love a bit of pretty stationery? From notebooks for ‘to-do’s, to cards for bridesmaids or loved ones, prints to pretty the home and bits to brighten the office. We’ve rounded up a few of our favourite picks from the best stationery boutiques and designers.
I cannot be the only paper and stationery obsessed lady out there. In fact, I know full well I’m not, so thought I’d share a few of my favourite pieces such as notebooks, prints, cards and office items that can be found via a few of my go-to paper places and designers.
I’ve done a little round-up of a few of my favourite products, a monochrome vibe and something a little more pretty, so if you are looking for papery goodness for yourself or to send to someone who will also appreciate it then hopefully this will be a useful start!

I hope you all had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend? The good news is that the fun isn’t quite over just yet as we are kicking off this week with a fabulous giveaway for a lucky London Bride reader!
I was recently introduced to the beautiful jewellery from the Maria Allen Boutique, who’s designs feature intricate vintage illustrations on wood, fusing traditional and modern together. The stand-out piece for me is the adorable, charming and super pretty personalised mini love letter necklace. I was lucky enough to receive my very own personalised necklace from Maria Allen and I’m completely smitten with it – even if I did write the love note to myself!
Each necklace is carefully handmade in the Maria Allen studio in Brighton, and it features a 24k gold plated envelope locket with a lovely textured surface. There is a sweet bird charm ‘delivering’ the envelope on the chain and the locket can be opened to reveal a teeny removeable wooden card insert which will have your choice of words etched onto it. My choice of words is a little nod to our engagement story, how very soppy! It’s very cute how you can open the locket to reveal the message – any guys out there looking to propose I can imagine this being the most perfect opportunity!
The winner of this gorgeous necklace worth £49 will be able to choose their own short message, date or name to include which can even be in any language. Perfect for a wedding day accessory, bridesmaid gift or just because!
All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning a Mini Gold Personalised Love Letter Necklace with your own choice of message, simply head on over and click ‘Like’ on the Maria Allen Facebook Page and complete the form below.
Whether you are getting married or not the competition is open to everyone throughout the UK!
