Wedding Gift Guide: Why Sheets Make the Best Wedding Gifts
So you have the invite, dusted off your best dress, gone on a crash diet (so the rellies' don't think you have put on weight) but still don't know what you buy the happy couple since they didn't provide a gift register? You know you want to get them something nice but useful. What more would a couple use more than good quality sheets.
A good night's sleep is vital for every human being to survive and given that on average a person sleeps for 8 hours in a day, that means that an average person will sleep for 229,961 hours in their lifetime or basically one third of their life (so for a couple, that's 459922 hours).
Providing a couple with a beautiful sheet set would mean they would get at least 10,000 hours worth of use from.
Now that you've found the perfect gift idea, you'll probably want to know which one would be the right fit. There are so many to choose from and you don't have to go for traditional cotton.
Ideally, the signal "quality" for a good sheet set is found in their thread count. High thread count and quality threads ensures softness and longevity of the sheets. You could go for a 100% 500TC Cotton sheet set or why not treat the lovely couple to a 1000TC hotel quality sheet set(since they are paying for you to enjoy a huge night out.) Sheridan has a range of high end luxury sheets, let the couples honeymoon period remain a little bit longer with this beautiful hotel quality sheets.
If you wanted to step away from cotton, linen is also an ideal material for quality sheets. The Vida Linen Sheets are made in Portugal, are individually stonewashed and get softer with each wash! These particular sheets are thick and are sure to last many nights sleeps.
After picking your fabric, it's time to think about colour. Depending on how well you know the couple of the hour, you may or may not know their tastes. A safe bet is to go for solid colours that would easily match any bedroom aesthetic. This could be whites, navys, khakis, and taupes. Lighter colours tend to make the room look brighter and bigger - but if they're the type to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner in bed (which we hope they aren't!) darker colours would be the way to go.
