Since it’s wedding season now, we figure many people have one coming up in the next few months. Whether you’re creating your wedding registry or deciding what to get the happy couple, we’ve got you covered. Check out our gift picks below!
1. A Honeymoon Fund Contribution
These are becoming more popular, especially for couples who lived together before the wedding. It’s perfect because guests get to know they’re contributing to something special. Couples can even share with guests what they’ll be doing. Guests can help the couple afford a lowkey beach getaway or an adventurous safari retreat. There are no limitations.
2. A KitchenAid Stand Mixer
We know, these can get pricy. But we believe every home cook/baker needs one of these. They’re extremely high quality and can last for decades. And if you can’t afford to get one on your own, most registries allow group gifting so you can split the cost with someone else.
3. An Air Fryer
One awesome thing about air fryers is they come in many different sizes and styles. Most store registries offer these at a reasonable price, and you can’t go wrong with the. From simple recipes to more complex ones, everyone can find something fun to cook in one. You can even get air fryer cookbooks for as low as $10. If you do get the couple one, we recommend homemade mozzarella sticks!
4. Gift Cards
Okay, so another unconventional registry item. Why gift cards? Because the couple can get what they want. Whether it’s a gift card for a nice restaurant, an experience or a fun store, you know it will go to good use. Some people think gift cards are impersonal, but we believe it gives the couple freedom to choose to do or get something amazing.
5. A Bar Cart
Bar carts can be reasonably priced or super luxurious. With many options and styles, there’s bound to be one that fits the couple’s style. It makes a great addition for any living room or family room and it’s ideal for entertaining purposes. It doesn’t matter if the couple are wine connoisseurs or if they prefer nonalcoholic drinks like mocktails, bar carts can be used for any type of drink.
6. A Charcuterie Board
Perfect for a couple who likes to entertain, a charcuterie board can be used for many different food platters. There’s the typical meat and cheese option, but it can be used for dessert, fruit and veggies as well. You also don’t even need to have guests over to use it. It’s perfect for a date night in.
7. Dual Grill and Griddle
If the couple likes to make brunch, a dual grill and griddle is an amazing gift. Not only does it fit on the kitchen counter, but it also allows the cook to make both pancakes and bacon at the same time. Not a big fan of either? There are plenty of other recipes out there that can be made on one of these, including hashbrowns.
8. A Local Experience
We already mentioned all the fun things couples can do on their honeymoon, but how about when they need a date night. Some fun local experiences include a cooking class, a massage, wine tasting, sip and paint or a ropes course.
9. Fine China
Picking out china is a fun part of the registry process. For couples, try to imagine what you’d like to use when hosting a dinner party or a holiday event. A china set is a great gift because you know the couple will use it for entertaining.
10. A Keurig
A Keurig is a kitchen staple for many homes, especially in the morning. But one of the really cool things about a Keurig is that it doesn’t just make coffee, it also makes tea and hot chocolate.
