(NC) A couple's registry is the best place to start when buying a wedding gift. From kitchen appliances to towels and linens, the list acts as a master guide for choosing exactly what is wanted without duplication.
So what if a couple decides not to register? It probably means they will be happy with your gift choice, so if you're looking for guidance here are some universally appreciated ideas:
Consider everyday essentials. Bath towels are the perfect gift since they're an affordable buy for family and friends and an everyday essential. Not sure how many to buy? Consider gifting sets of bath towels, hand towels and washcloths for their bathroom, linen closet and laundry room.
Buy items that will withstand the test of time. Weddings are the time to select durable quality. A premium knife set, for instance, is the foundation of every meal, from prepping and dicing to carving the finishing touches. A popular choice is the KitchenAid Professional Series 11-Piece Cutlery Set. It has all the knives they'll need and is available in a variety of colours to match any kitchen style. It'll look great on their counter while also providing the stability, durability and lifetime warranty to last as long as their marriage.
Upgrade their kitchen appliances. While the couple may already own kitchen staples like a microwave or a coffee maker, this is the chance for them to upgrade. From a powerful blender to a new craft coffee machine, surprise them with a state-of-the-art countertop appliance.
Pick gifts they wouldn't have considered. Luggage sets are often forgotten on wedding registries, and many couples wish they'd included them. Why not gift a matching set for jetting away on their honeymoon?
