Every couple, whether modern-minded or traditional, is different: Guarantee you’re giving the perfect wedding present with Globe Style’s dual-prong gift guide.

For the tippling twosome

Right: Vintage seltzer bottle, $225 (U.S.) through theseltzershop.com.

For your oenophilic office mate

Augment a vino lover’s wine-serving savvy through the gift of a handsome decanter – solid-lead crystal for purists or stamped with a heart for romantics.
