Whether this versatile wooden tray is used to serve drinks or corral magazines and other accents on a coffee table, it’s a glamorous addition to any space. Add a monogram or name on the tray for a small fee to personalize this gift.
Let’s talk wedding gift ideas. Sure, nine times out of ten, you’re probably popping a check in an envelope with the cutest seriouslysofun card you could find at Papyrus. Or, ordering that thing from that one place (yawn) off the wedding registry and putting all your creative effort into the prettiest gift wrap you can find at Target. Yes, it’s semi-heartbreaking not being able to buy that heart-shaped Le Creuset Dutch oven for your to-be-wed babes. That would be nice, but so is being respectful of your friends’ actual wants and needs.
We’re not going totally hog wild here (I left that to the bridal shower gift roundup), so we’re going to try to stick mainly with items to help the couple build up their “new home,” as tradition goes. After all, even if they’ve been living together for a decade, chances are they don’t yet have a pair of ultra-luxe, sleek-AF, Scandi pepper and salt grinders that are basically works of art. Or hand-hammered brass serving spoons. Or a cooking pot with a little piggy for a handle! And they need it, obviously. I’ve also included travel-themed items, because honeymoon! And wanderlusting life together!
This exact set of double old fashioned glasses are only available from third-party sellers on Amazon, but there are other sizes of this style from Bormioli Rocco — including these cooler glasses and these tasting glasses.
“I’ve been basically the best bride ever so far — no bridal shower, no bachelorette party. That said, a few indulgences would be great. This record player is one of the fanciest things on my wedding registry, and something I really hope someone gets for us. How picturesque would it be to have this thing playing in our newly purchased fixer-upper that we would, according to my fantasy, move into some time next year? We would christen our dream home by violently dancing to ‘Land of a 1000 Dances.’” — Claire Kim, English professor, married June 2017
“This may sound super wild, but the best gift I’ve ever received and would absolutely give to anyone in my life was a ‘Relationship Reading’ with an astrologer, who reviews each of your astrological charts and shares what aspects are most compatible about the two of you and what areas you will need to work together on as partners. Luckily, our charts are very compatible. After our first reading with her, we did a follow-up call with her so she could help us select the best date for us to get married. So we will be getting married on the summer solstice: ‘The triumph of light over darkness.’ If you don’t have a good astrologer in your area, this book is a really great substitute.” — Jess Ray, yoga instructor, married June 2017

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.
“Although my fiancé would have rather registered at Guitar Center, we really needed to upgrade our kitchen and household items. The one thing that I was most looking forward to is a new vacuum! I’ve only had one real vacuum and it is now over 7 years old, sounds like a jet engine, and isn’t working so well. We went with the Dyson Ball vacuum so that we can easily clean up without lugging our dated and heavy vacuum around our new house.” — Jenna Caswell, PR account executive, marrying August 2017
