For some of us, the end of the pandemic seems to be in sight. With life gradually returning to (the new) normal, dare we say that we can start planning ahead again? With many weddings resuming (though limited) in the UK and Corfu, if you’re lucky, you might just be able to tie the knot yourself – or have been invited to a post-lockdown summer wedding.
So many couples have sadly had to push back their big day and have been waiting for positive news. It’s understandable, then, that you might want to add something a little extra special to your registry, or gift the happy couple with a unique and sustainable present to be enjoyed for years to come – without breaking the bank. Thankfully, we’ve got you covered with our sustainable wedding gifts guide, all handpicked and under 100 pounds or euros.

Poppy on Paxos Gift Set – Erimitis Sunset
A post-lockdown trip abroad may not be on the cards for some of us this year but that doesn’t mean you can’t bring some sun to you. Give the happy couple a little piece of Paxos with this Poppy on Paxos Gift Set.
This unique gift set includes one A4 print of the stunning sunset over the white Erimitis cliffs, an A2 print of Gaios harbour, an illustrated tea towel, and a hand-drawn map of Paxos. If they’ve ever been to Paxos, this gift will hold real sentimental value, and if they haven’t, it’ll have them wishing for a trip.
Enikeoros Set of 3 ‘Blue’ Canvases
This set of Enikeoros 3 small canvases, hand painted by local Corfiot artist, Eniko Orosz, will transport whoever views them to the beach. Eniko even uses Ionian seawater in these paintings so you can take a piece of Corfu home with you. These are one-of-a-kind, gorgeous pieces of art that would make for a great gift in any home.
We’re sure that any eco-concious couple would love this diverse array of unique, ethical gift ideas. You can check out more of our sustainable, eco-friendly brands here, or for information on Ionian Kind you can visit our about page.
