The perfect bride-to-be gifts

Here at Shropshire Petals we love to share the best wedding planning tips, and so today we're teaming up with the lovely Hanson & Hopewell to find the perfect gifts for the bride-to-be.

Finding a gift for the bride can be a pretty daunting task. With a high street full of novelty products, it can be difficult to find something meaningful and personal. Hanson & Hopewell are thankfully changing the wedding gifting landscape with their luxury but affordable bride-to-be gift boxes, making it easy to find the perfect engagement gifts, hen party presents and wedding gift boxes for your bride. Brides beware: these gifts are guaranteed to make an impact so tell your maid of honour and put these on your wedding wishlist now!


Hanson & Hopewell was founded by talented duo Katrina Hopewell and Laura Hanson after forming a long-lasting bond working in publishing. The close friends knew they'd collaborate on something special after Hanson helped plan Hopewell's nuptials, discovering their mutual love for everything wedding related. This lust-worthy label was officially unveiled in December 2016, launching their first five signature bride-to-be gift boxes, drawing upon their experience of being both brides, bridesmaids and wedding guests enjoying the free bubbly!


Hopewell said "Our favourite part of every wedding is enjoying all the little moments with our friends on the lead up to the big day. The first glance at the bride's beautiful ring, taking part in all of the secret hen party shenanigans, and helping to troubleshoot those pesky florist dramas too. What most people find difficult is the gifting part. When our friends got engaged we couldn't find anything meaningful and personal on the high street. We wanted something beautiful, thoughtful and luxurious to celebrate our friendships that would keep their sparkle long past the wedding day.

So we launched Hanson & Hopewell. To make your bride-to-be gifts stylish and personal, as well as tell a unique story. We've uncovered hidden gems from the best independent makers in the UK to help you celebrate all of the key occasions in your bride's wedding journey - from luxury designed wedding journals, organic beauty products and gorgeous confetti pops - giving her all the little luxuries she needs on the lead up to the big day as well as freeing you up to help solve all those pre-wedding jitters! Shropshire Petals were one of the first partners we got in touch with as we thought they were a must have for our boxes, especially as I had a wonderful experiencing choosing them for my own confetti at my wedding."


We think their first collection fuses English country-chic with effortless city glamour - the Hanson & Hopewell girl loves vintage pieces, but with a cool, contemporary edge. Their gift boxes are made for the bride who wants her best friends to stand by her in style and look just as beautiful as she does and these gifts are certainly Instagram ready to share on the big day!

What we love most is that every gift box is lovingly personalised with a custom-designed handwritten card, presented in a keepsake box that is beautifully wrapped with ribbon and tissue paper, and can be delivered in 24 hours for all those last minute gifting needs.
