Whether you take pride in being a great gift giver or require a bit of inspo, shopping for the best wedding gifts is a skill unto itself. Unlike anniversary gifts and engagement gifts, wedding presents are usually home related—think practical appliances and stylish decor as a way to set the newlyweds up for success.
Sure, a cutting board or new set of dishes might not sound like the most sentimental gift out there. But they’re still useful items that most couples are thrilled to receive (and make for more thoughtful wedding gift ideas than a gift card). Want to see some tears? You can personalize a wedding gift with the couple’s monogram or an engraving to create a sweet keepsake.
Most couples create a wedding registry to guide their family and friends through their must-have items. But often the good stuff goes fast—especially if you’re a procrastinator (nice to meet you; join the club). So, slowpokes, having a list of great gift ideas in your back pocket is helpful to impress the happy couple and avoid being that wedding guest on their big day.
