For the java-obsessed newlyweds, my pick is the Handpresso Outdoor Espresso Machine Set. Just think of all the ways they’ll use this super-portable and outdoor-friendly gift: romantic picnics, days at the beach, wine festivals and more!
The Resource Revival Recycled Bike Chain Bottle Opener is such a fun spin on a classic wedding gift! The new couple will love to pop the caps off drinks using its colorful anodized aluminum head and flexible recycled bike chain handle.
Who needs another flatware set? If you’ve got a foodie couple to buy for, I recommend picking up the Joyce Chen Burnished Bamboo Chopstick Set with Holders. These 9” chopsticks are so chic, and also good for the environment: Bamboo is a grass, not wood, and an abundant renewable resource.
I know that the last thing newlyweds want to think about is cleaning, which is why I think an iRobot Roomba 560 Bagless Robotic Vacuummakes for the perfect gift! This small wonder will whip around their new abode, sucking up dirt and debris (not to mention pet hair and other allergens) so they can enjoy a spotless home.
What a glowing way to wish them well on their new life together! This gorgeous 100 Good Wishes Candle Set comes with a pair of paraffin candles inscribed with words like harmony, knowledge, adventure, and health that are lit from within as the centers of the candles burn down.
They can let everyone at the next BBQ or tailgate know they’re officially man and wife with these cheeky Hortense B. Hewitt Mr. and Mrs. Can Coolers. I think it makes a great gag gift for the newlyweds who have a great sense of humor!
In days past, superstitions prevented people from giving a set of knives as a wedding gift, but more and more non-traditional couples (especially those who love to cook) are adding them to their wish lists. I recommend the J.A. Henckels International Forged Synergy Knife Set, that includes everything a chef could hope for, like vegetable, paring, utility and santoku knives.
Why give plain old pots and pans? The Nordic Ware Divided Skillet Omelet Pan & Poacher is a gift they’ll use every weekend! I love that this clever non-stick piece lets them prepare both omelets and poached eggs in the same pan, so every palette can be pleased at once.
Outdoor enthusiasts and adventure-seeking newlyweds will be delighted to receive a Coleman SunDome 7-Foot by 7-Foot Dome Tent as a wedding present. I love its sleek design, and handy extras like adjustable ventilation and electrical-access port.
For the couple that likes to have wine parties, I recommend the Picnic Time 5-piece Formaggio Cheese Board with Knives. They’ll love the two-toned bamboo cutting board with slide-out drawer that holds four included stainless steel cheese tools.
After all the excitement of the wedding and honeymoon dies down and the new couple settles into their life together, they’ll truly appreciate a gift like an Omaha Steaks Dinner. When you send them a classic dinner like Leg of Lamb or New York Sirloin Tips(that comes via a dry-ice cooler they can freeze), they’ll receive the main course and all the fixings for an elegant feast any day of the week.
A Personalized Cashmere Throw is a little touch of luxury that the newlyweds will cherish for many years to come. Since it’s available in four different neutral tones (and fashioned from only the finest cashmere fibers), it’ll be a snap to select a color to complement any couple’s taste.
Everyone knows the heart is the ultimate symbol of love, so I think it only makes sense for this shape to take center stage in a classic wedding gift. That’s why I like the Nambe Heart Ring Holder, a beautiful piece fashioned from full-lead crystal that holds and displays the bride’s cherished rings.
The happy couple can create a chronicle of their life together for future generations with the Book of Us: A Journal of Your Love Story in 150 Questions. It offers 150 topics in a Q&A format to produce a piece they’ll cherish for years to come.
An ice bucket is such a classic wedding gift! I particularly like the Kate Spade Stanton Place Ice Bucket for its timeless styling that includes silver plating with touches of chic acrylic. Plus, it will coordinate with just about any kind of barware.
I think the contemporary design of the Reed & Barton Manhattan Flatware Chest will suit any couple’s taste, what with the smooth ebony finish and brushed nickel accents. They’ll appreciate how the flannel-lined case will keep their service for 24 clean and tarnish-free.
You can’t go wrong with a gift that displays a keepsake, and my favorite for newlyweds is the Waterford Wedding Announcement Frame. Made in Ireland and fashioned from the company’s renowned full-lead crystal, it holds two four-by-six-inch photographs or two sides of a wedding announcement.
I can’t think of a better wedding present than something from one of the most celebrated cookware makers in the country! The All-Clad Accessories 3-Piece Mixing Bowl Set will be a welcome addition to any couple’s home, especially since they’re made of heavy 18/10 stainless steel and are completely corrosion-resistant, not to mention nonreactive to acidic foods like salad dressings and marinades.
When kept simple and understated, personalized gifts make great wedding presents. This Wedding Certificate Holder With Engraved Stand is a unique item that they'll treasure for the rest of their lives together. The silver-plated holder features an opening on one end to slide the wedding certificate. Engravings on the outside offer a decorative accent, and you can add your own message for the newlyweds, including their wedding date. It sure beats tucking the certificate... more
