Let’s be honest for a minute: Putting together that wedding gift registry is low-key the bane of any newly wed-to-be’s existence. Sure, you can cram it chalk full of every gravy boat and gourmet popcorn maker in the store, but there’s always that nagging feeling you’re missing something a lot more important. Here are five fire ideas for gifts that belong on your registry. And no worries, you can totally thank us later.
Reliable Baking Ware
It’s not the most exciting wedding gift idea, but it is the one that will keep on giving. Whether you’re serving up sweets at the next neighborhood bash or you’ve decided to treat yourself as part of a quiet night in, you’ll find a sturdy, elegant baking ware set comes to the rescue every time.
You simply can’t go wrong requesting this killer 10-piece set from the queen of the kitchen, Rachael Ray herself, especially because it’s non-stick. You’ll be thanking your lucky stars you put this bad boy on your registry.
Self-inking rubber stamp
Speaking of giving thanks, once the cake has been cut and your wedding day has reached i fairytale ending, you’re going to find yourself with an awful lot of thank-you notes to write. It’s no wonder they leave this part out of all the stories. Who wants to read about Cinderella and Prince Charming pouring over a guest list, trying to personalize each note of gratitude?
Make the post-wedding postage a little less tedious with this clever self-inking rubber stamp, complete with interchangeable plates so you can send multiple messages. Plus, you get to upload your own personalized artwork, so guests will know you’re not just mailing it in.
Furniture care kit
You want your wedding day to be perfect, but your furniture won’t always be. Dings, dents and scuffs happen. They’re unavoidable, like junk mail or bad Adam Sandler movies.
Keep your favorite furniture pieces sparkling for years to come with this versatile furniture care kit. Whether you’re looking to give a wood finish some extra sheen or you’re looking to rejuvenate some worn out leather, this kit has everything you need to get it done.
Wireless speaker system
The music shouldn’t stop with the last dance of the evening. Keep the party jumping with a bumping speaker setup and make sure the dancing never stops. After all, any floor can be a dance floor if a song’s good enough.
Make sure your registry includes this dynamic speaker setup from Sonos. Not only are you able to play your jams anywhere in your home, but you can control it with your voice and connect it to over 30 streaming services. It’s the audio equivalent to having your cake and eating it too.
Ask for a donation
Not quite sure what to ask for on this big day? How about you use your special day to make someone else’s a little special, too? Find a charity that really stands out to you, and request that your guests make a donation instead of a gift.
It’s a great way to start giving back early, and you can bet you’ll ride off into the sunset feeling warm and fuzzy inside, and it won’t just be the champagne.
