Remind your favorite first mates of the day they tied the knot with, well, this knotted rope bowl. Bringing a distinctively nautical touch to any land lubber’s dining room table or kitchen counter, this unique conversation piece is nothing if not see-worthy. Available in white or chrome.
A hip flask is another traditional groom’s gift – we particularly like this modern version from David-Louise Designs. You can also engrave it with your groom’s name and a personal message – wrap it with a bottle of your man’s favourite spirit for a gift he’ll cherish.
Finally, a practical gift for the man who has everything – we bet he won’t have these! These shirt stays will stop your man’s shirt from becoming untucked by clipping it to his socks – genius! Even if he’s not a fan, you’ll both have a laugh when he undresses at the end of the night!
Polished mango wood meets white marble, mixing both texture and tone—not to mention form and function—in this rustic, sleek serving board. Forget Marcona almonds and brie: You could serve salted peanuts and string cheese on this thing, and it would probably still impress your mother-in-law.
“Two and a half years after my wedding, a few of the standout gifts that I still love today and have held up are this olive wood-handled steak-knives set and this beautiful copper tea kettle. All of those are also pretty neutral, so if you’re not feeling something on the person’s registry, they’re a fairly sure bet.” — Amanda Gorski, interior designer, Gimme Shelter Designs, married November 2014

A self-programming thermostat is the least threatening version of learning AI. Nest’s thermostat takes digital notes of your preferred temperatures during the day and reprograms itself based on that infomartion. Of course, you can take over and change it from anywhere through your smartphone.

You probably already know if you are marrying a ‘watch guy’ or not — he’s likely got 3,4, or 10 watches on his dresser. If that’s the case, this watch winder that houses up to four automatic watches is an elegant addition for a watch enthusiast.
Cozy, luxurious, and stylish all at once, these versatile 70-by-50-inch hand-woven throws are made of 100 percent Turkish cotton—as comfy as beach blankets and absorbent as bath towels. Best of all, the clean patterns and muted earthy colors (chose from six) are suitable for almost any space or color scheme.
Ok, let’s get serious here. The ceremony that lasted the whole day hasn’t really left much strength in your body. If you still can have mind blowing sex, well – good for you, but most couples would probably be too tired for that. That doesn’t mean your wedding night can’t be amazing.
Finally, your officiant or clergy member is not to be forgotten. While technically optional, it’s a recommended gesture for the groom to offer a tip in the 10% to 20% range of their fee, which typically averages between $150 and $200.

“Generally, my favorite gifts were actually just things that people picked off my registry. I took a lot of time to pick them out, so they were definitely things I needed and wanted. I’ve been to weddings where it’s clear that the person registered for random crap or just signed up for a generic registry, or worse … had their mom pick out stuff for their registry. I love these glasses. They’re so cool-looking and super durable.” — Michelle Rego, attorney, married January 2015
“The best gift we got was our Big Chill buttercup-yellow stove. It’s the perfect future vintage accessory in our urban farm-stand-inspired kitchen because it looks retro cool and cooks up a mean quinoa risotto. We also got the Ninja blender because my husband, Justin, and I do love our utilitarian gifts. Nothing better than a wedding present you use daily, and this one makes a mean protein shake for breakfast.” — Michael Shome, photo director, married November 2013

The names of some anniversaries provide guidance for appropriate or traditional gifts for the spouses to give each other; if there is a party these can be brought by the guests or influence the theme or decoration. These gifts vary in different countries, but some years have well-established connections now common to most nations: 5th Wooden, 10th Tin, 15th Crystal, 20th China, 25th Silver, 30th Pearl, 40th Ruby, 50th Gold, 60th Diamond, and 70th Platinum. In English speaking countries the first, wooden, gift was cut on the day of celebration and then presented to the wife as a finished article before the next two quarter days had passed. The tradition may have originated in medieval Germany where, if a married couple lived to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their wedding, the wife was presented by her friends and neighbours with a silver wreath to congratulate them for the good fortune that had prolonged the lives of the couple for so many years[inconsistent]. On celebration of the 50th, the wife received a wreath of gold. Over time the number of symbols expanded and the German tradition came to assign gifts that had direct connections with each stage of married life. The symbols have changed over time. For example, in the United Kingdom, diamond was a well known symbol for the 75th anniversary, but this changed to the now more common 60th anniversary after Queen Victoria’s 60 years on the throne was widely marked as her Diamond Jubilee.
Buying something that reflects his hobbies is always a good idea – if he’s mad about football, why not buy him a season ticket to watch his favourite team play? If he loves a certain band, buy him tickets to see their live concert. It may seem obvious, but these touches will show your husband-to-be just what you mean to him.
A registry is a collection of suggested gifts for the married couple, oftentimes items on it occupy an otherwise awkward buying space. What you request on your registry should be what you and your other half will get use out of together — whether that’s in the home, or within a shared interest or hobby. Oftentimes this takes the form of premium quality goods that you may want, but not typically be willing to spend top dollar on — think barware, pillows, an Instant Pot Ultra or a really badass cooler. There are some obvious, and some less obvious, go-to items that make up a great registry — below, we’ve outlined 50 of our favorite that span the length of the price gamut.
The moment when he sees the girl of his dreams, walking down the aisle and ready to say “I do” for the rest of her life is really a special moment.

In the Commonwealth realms, one can receive a message from the monarch for 60th, 65th, and 70th wedding anniversaries, and any wedding anniversary after that. This is done by applying to Buckingham Palace in the United Kingdom, or to the Governor-General’s office in the other Commonwealth realms.

“I seriously love this thing because it reminds me of when I spent time in Japan, since I used my rice cooker daily while living there. It plays a cute little jingle when it starts and ends, and it makes perfect rice every time. It also has settings for different kinds of rice (white, brown, sushi), which is convenient.” — Laura Snizek Ramirez, physician assistant, married June 2014

The origins of the current gift conventions date to 1937. Before that, only the 1st, 5th, 10th, 15th, 20th, 25th, 50th, and 75th anniversaries had an associated gift. In 1937, the American National Retail Jeweler Association (now known as Jewelers of America as a result of an organizational merger) introduced an expanded list of gifts. The revamped list gave a gift for each year up to the 25th, and then for every fifth anniversary after that.
