Gothic Wedding Gifts Introduction
First, silverware with goth-themed artistic embellishments can be used every day in the new couple's home. England-based Alchemy Gothic Studios creates 12- and 16-piece cutlery sets based on designs by gothic artists. The silverware is made from lead-free pewter, with some pieces incorporating Austrian crystals and brass in the design.
Second,China, a popular gift at weddings regardless of the theme, can be personalized to match a goth lifestyle. Artists specializing in china and porcelain can be found locally through telephone listings, or look online to find a wider selection. Find out what kind of art and design the couple likes and have examples of the work ready to provide as inspiration for the artist. An example of goth-themed china could be a black motif with red and white accents.
Third, Goths with morbid tastes or a good sense of humor may enjoy furniture that's made to look like -- or made from -- old caskets. Caskets can be made into coffee tables, shelving units, or even a couch. Some companies that specialize in casket furniture will even help you turn the unit back into a coffin for the day that it's needed. If you're handy with tools, you can also purchase kits to turn a casket into a piece of furniture.
