We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors.

A brief note: Registries! They exist. And you should check them before going off-script. But what if everything on the registry has already been purchased? The items are out of your price range? They didn't
make a registry? You just love breaking rules? Then boy oh boy do I have some gift ideas for you.
Listen, getting something that's not on the registry can be a risk, especially since
wedding etiquette is real and weirdly scary. Just use your (always incredible, never flawed) judgement!
A gold and concrete
ring holder so their new bling has a safe place to call home.
This item is from Amazon's Handmade section and may take a few days to create and ship.
Promising review: "I love this so much! I just got engaged and have been trying to figure out the best way to temporarily but safely set my ring down when cooking or cleaning without having to go put it in its ring box every time. I happened upon these concrete rings holders and immediately fell in love. They are a perfect size, amazing price, and such a stylish and modern look that matches my decor. Now that I have received this, I am likely going to buy more for other areas in the house. Thank you so much for a wonderful handmade item!" — ChristineSD

customized embosser for officially combining their book collections. Turning "your" books and "my" books into "our" books is arguably the most sacred part of marriage, and this gift reflects that.
My partner got me one of these, and can confirm: it's the best gift ever.
Promising review: "This was a surprise for my spouse. It arrived sooner than expected, and it's a big hit. I ordered adhesive gold foil stamps which can easily be embossed and then placed on the page. If you want to forego the stamps, the design looks great on the page as well." — jamesosews
A set of two
Egyptian cotton robes they can luxuriate about the house in while eating leftover wedding cake.
The robes are one-size, and come with a variety of embroidery options, as well as a customization option.
Promising review: "Love these robes! I got them for my husband and I for our anniversary and as a wedding gift for friends! They fit great. Light and comfortable. The packaging is beautiful!" — Helen C
newlywed cookbook full of recipes to cook together. From date nights to celebratory dinner parties, they'll have a great time making their way through these dishes and (hopefully) learning to work together in the kitchen along the way.
Promising review: "This book is simply adorable. I found it for a a bridal shower after they registered for a cookbook stand. I couldn't just give them a stand without a cookbook, so what a perfect gift this was! All the ladies thought it was so cute and wanted to know where I got it. It's super trendy with great pictures and recipes inside. It teaches the newlyweds how to find the best ingredients, prep and of course how to cook. The beginning of the book provides recipes for cooking for two, then how to cook for a small group and finally entertain a large party. What a great find. I will consider purchasing it for another young couple in the future. I stuck some of my own recipes in there on handwritten cards and added a nice message to the inside cover. I think it will make a great keepsake for the newlyweds!" — Teresa Price: $19.29

Fog of Love, a two-player board game whose gameplay replicates a unique romantic comedy. Players meet, fall in love, and go through the trials and tribulations of making a roller-coaster ride of a relationship work. Totally not like anyone you know...
The game comes with a comprehensive tutorial to play through so you can easily learn the ins and outs of the rule book before being turned loose. And as if this game didn't sound fun enough, there are
paranormal romance, it will never last, and trouble with the in-laws expansion packs! Promising review: "I have no idea how they’re making money on this game. The pieces are so high quality and the box is so unique. It's great that they’re already prepared for expansions. I love the gameplay, and I’m always trying to show it off to whoever I can. Absolutely love." — Jessica
Price: $19.41+ (available in male-female and same-sex versions)
relationship Q and A journal for recording the ebb and flow of their first three years as a married couple, not to mention having an excuse to just cuddle up and talk.
Promising review: "I got this for my hubby for Valentine's day, and we try to do it every night. It's so much fun to get to know each other better, guess each others' answers, and see how the answers change over time. It's also become a go-to addition to wedding gifts for me now! Every couple should get one!" — Samantha Ventura
cast iron pan that I pinky promise they'll use for the rest of their lives.
This is the cast iron I have, and it just lives on my stovetop because I use it literally every day. Cleanup is simple: I hand wash (I usually opt for no soap, but they can decide) and rub with vegetable oil to keep it nice and seasoned.
Promising review: "I adore this skillet. As long as you keep up with oiling and don't use dish soap on it, the non-stick surface holds up like a charm. It is heavy and I need to buy one of those cute things to put on the handle since it gets hot when you use it on the stove top, (as cast iron does), but it is everything I expected from my first cast iron pan. It has seen a few months of pretty consistent use and it is going strong. I love being able to pan sear and then pop things into the oven." — RDlenix
Price: $14.90 (originally $26.68).
scratch-off map so they can chronicle the many exciting travels they'll share together.
Promising review: "I love the map! It’s so fun to sit down with loved ones and scratch off where you have been! It also shows you there are a ton more places to go!" — emily wright
Price: $23.99+ (available in two sizes).
wine decanter that will help their wine ~breathe~, really ~open up~, and ~other wine buzzwords~.
All jokes aside, decanting really
does improve the taste of red wines. Not to mention the artful design of this decanter basically allows it to double as a piece of art. Promising review: "This wine decanter is exquisite. I bought it as a gift and can't wait to see their expressions when they open it. It is very elegant yet sturdy enough to be functional at dinner parties. I highly recommend purchasing this item. Also the packaging was excellent." — Dorrie
immersion circulator to explore the sous vide method of cooking. This genius device lets you meticulously control the time and temperature at which meat cooks, and is the new-fangled appliance the couple doesn't even know they need.
Place the sous vide in a pot of water and place vacuum- or plastic-sealed meat inside to have it heated to the exact temperature you want for perfectly cooked steak, pork, chicken, and fish every single time!
Promising review: "This makes an eye of round roast as tender as a prime rib. Excellent product. Just plug the thing in, make sure your water level is good, and set it and forget it. This thing will cook absolutely perfect food every single time." — Leeway63 Price: $92.92

The scrapbook comes with six postcards, journal stickers, photo corners, and three decorative rolls of tape.
Promising review: "Purchased this for my daughter and her new husband. Very cute idea for a new couple just starting their own adventures." — DB8423
A tin of
wedding tea for curling up with a warm cuppa together. Turns out weddings taste floral with a hint of lemon and vanilla. Who knew?
Promising review: "I purchased this tea for a friend as a wedding gift. I packaged it with a couple of cute mugs that I purchased at a local store, and I think this made for a unique but cute gift. Overall, I am really pleased with this purchase! The tin is beautiful, and Harney and Sons has yet to disappoint me with the quality of their teas. This is not a loose leaf tea. The tea bags come in individual sachets. There are 20 sachets in each tin. As I said, I purchased this for a friend, but I intend to buy it again, this time for myself. This also arrived really quickly and was packaged well." — Lacey V
ENO double nest hammock to snuggle up in like lovebirds. This hammock can be set up virtually anywhere and is the perfect perch for two.
Reviewers recommend also getting the
ENO Atlas straps for simple set-up! Promising review: "My most treasured item! Has seriously changed the quality of my life! I use it for backpacking, day hiking, taking naps, car camping. Fun to go backpacking with friends who all have ENO hammocks too! The Atlas straps are a must! Comfy with my boyfriend in it, too." — --
Price: $41.97+ (available in 45 colors)
write-in illustrated menu book where they can record the details of all the legendary dinner parties they'll throw throughout the years.
Promising review: "I ordered this as a housewarming gift for a couple, but after just receiving it today, I think I want to order one for myself! It is BEAUTIFUL! The artwork and colors are amazing. It is also bigger than I had expected! It is great quality, and I think this is going to be a hit! Highly, highly recommend ordering this." — Amazon Customer
pet sofa if they were both basically married to their dog or cat before this other human came along.
Promising review: "I've bought quite a few cat sofas with little luck. However, this is a winner! It's bigger then expected, but the material is nice and the sofa looks very high quality. It looks like a human sofa shrunk down to cat size." — Kawidood
Price: $130.25+ (available in three colors)
bar set for shaking, muddling, and stirring their way into being a dynamic bartending duo.
The set comes with a shaker, muddler, bar spoon, double-sided measuring jigger, hawthorne strainer, julep strainer, two bottle pourers, and a recipe book.
Promising review: "I bought this set as a housewarming gift and was worried they were going to feel thin and cheap. I was wrong! First and foremost, the box and packaging is beautiful. As soon as it is opened, everyone is wowed. Beautiful gold color — not too yellow, not too brassy. Feels very durable, and the set provides many different tools to make drinks more exciting. Wonderful gift idea." — Oh Family
Chemex pour-over because they have many leisurely morning cups of coffee to look forward to drinking together, and this makes a great one. Pair it with a proper kettle and filters so they can get pouring ASAP.
Promising review (Chemex): "I wish I had learned about Chemex years ago. After a week of coffee made with it, I'll never go back. It's so delicious! I use less sugar, and drink every drop. Try folding a couple of weeks worth of filters in advance; they are easy to fold and then they are ready. I use a hand cranked burr grinder and a kettle with a long spout, both of which are worth having anyway, but combined with the Chemex, I can make a perfect cup every time." — YashasMom
Price: $36.95+ for the Chemex (available in four sizes), $41.99 for the kettle, and $13.35 for the filters
record player so they can spin their wedding song and slow dance in the living room like a couple of adorable saps.
Promising review: "I have had this record player for a year now and I can't praise it enough. It has lasted through a move, my neighbor's kids, my boyfriend's drunken DJ enthusiasm, and, embarrassingly enough, my fervor for a specific Ben E. King song on repeat. It's so pretty, too, so it serves as a sleek decorative piece in my living room in addition to its utilitarian purposes. It can be finicky so you have to be careful with it, but vinyls utilize antiquated technology as it is. The sound quality is really impressive! So happy with this purchase! A great gift idea, too." — Charlotte
Price: $249 (originally $299)
Promising review: "My husband and I just tried these masks for the first time and we love them. No stickiness after you take them off and no reason to rinse. Skin feels soo soft after just one use. So happy with these." — Aubry
A pair of
ceramic planters because the most beautiful couple in their home is actually the succulents.
Promising review: "I purchased these planters for a display shelf in my home. They look really nice and came in perfect condition. The only downside is that they don't have drainage holes, but we put rocks in the bottom to make sure the plants weren't over-watered. I would buy again!" — Chelsea Cepicky
A book of
Pablo Neruda love poems in both English and Spanish to remind them of how much love they have for one another, even when they can't find the words themselves.
Promising review: "I love Pablo Neruda and this collection of poems of his is great. I love the cover design and how it contains the original Spanish version on the left with the translated version on the right for every poem included. I t’s a nice little pocket-sized book that you could take with you or put on a coffee table for reading." — Brit
A set of
bath bombs for soaking in the tub and relaxing after all of that stressful wedding planning.
The bath bombs are vegan, organic, paraben-free, and cruelty free.
Promising review: "I love these bath bombs! They are awesome and smell amazing. It's a set of six different scents and colors. The colors are bold and the scents are so good. The bath bombs individually wrapped and look pretty fancy, so it could a great gift! I highly recommend." — Bubella
A set of
nesting bowls and measuring cups so their life together can at least start off with some organized drawers and cabinets.
Promising review: "I bought this for my cousin as a bridal shower gift, and I loved it so much I bought myself a set! Great for kitchens with limited kitchen space." — Diane Martin
Price: $27.42 (originally $50)
Instax camera for capturing photos of their time as newlyweds without having to worry about losing them in an inevitable hard drive crash.

bamboo cheese board they'll be so thrilled to open, they won't *brie*lieve their eyes.
The board is available in three styles, but the one pictured comes with two ceramic bowls with spoons, four pieces of cheese cutlery, and four cheese markers.
Promising review: "This is beautifully made and guaranteed to get compliments at every gathering! It cleans up easily, and the built-in storage for the serving cutlery means you'll never have to scramble to find everything you need. If you love to entertain, and you love cheese, then this is a must-have!" — Crystal
Price: $29.95+ (available in three styles)
And a book about
platters and boards so they can whip up a delicious and Instagram-worthy spread, oh, I don't know, maybe every time you come over.
Promising review: "A wise woman once told me, if there aren’t at least five things you would make, don’t buy the cookbook. This book not only has beautiful pictures, but simple and delicious recipes. I have given this book as a gift and had to buy it for myself. So far, I have made the smokey nuts, marinated feta, chocolate dipped strawberries with pistachio and raspberries, red wine caramelized onion dip, and cheese crackers. They were all amazing!" — C. Mor
luggage set that the happy couple can break in on the honeymoon.
The set comes with 20-, 24-, and 28-inch suitcases, each of which have TSA-approved locks and four wheels.
Promising review: "We are very pleased with this set! So far, the largest piece has been on four plane rides with a teenager. Other than a few little scuffs (to be expected), it is in great condition. The wheels move as smoothly as promised. We've even encountered very seasoned travelers who (without prompting) commented on the superb quality of the set. I love that they nest inside one another when not in use and do so without a struggle! They are lightweight, but feel very sturdy. Overall, we're extremely pleased with the purchase!" — JG
Price: $149.99 (available in six colors)
Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista with a one-touch drink selection system so they can cap off breakfast in bed with an espresso, latte, or cappuccino made for them by a cute coffee robot.
The Cafe Barista has a water and milk reservoir for espresso-making, plus it froths milk for you based on your drink selection.
Promising review: "I went to Italy for work, and they take espresso seriously, so when I came back to the states I wanted a machine that could make me a cappuccino automatically, and make decent, passable espresso. I can't see a con with this machine. The espresso is good, the milk is thick and frothed well, and it has a water reservoir so you don't have to fill it every time. Although the espresso is better from a real cafe in Italy, this make stuff that is close. This isn't a $3,000 machine, it's a $200 machine that does everything you want it to. I use this thing one to three times a day, every single day, the water temp is consistently accurate at 176. If you want to press a button and get a cappuccino, get this machine. You won't be disappointed. This exceeded my expectations (which is really hard to do). Probably the best purchase I've made of 2018." — MadMike
Price: $194.31+ (available in two colors)
An enameled cast iron
dutch oven for slow cooking like nobody's business — after they finish all the leftover chicken and fish from their big day, that is.
Promising review: "I received this dutch oven as a gift a few years ago, and I love it. It is a staple in my house for pasta sauce, chicken and rice, roasts, and any braised meats or stews. I liked it so much that I bought one as a wedding gift (off-list) for a foodie couple. They were thrilled." — R. Stafford
Price: $59.90 for a six-quart oven (available in eight colors and seven sizes)
bidet — stay with me — the definition of a perfect gift. Something people will rarely buy for themselves but deeply want, whether they know it or not. I recently saw a bidet on a friend's registry, so ha! Point proven.
The bidet's nozzle retracts to keep it safe and clean when everything's...ya know...going down. It comes with everything you need for easy installation — even the tools — and is compatible with most standard toilets.
Promising review: "Speaking as a hirsute gentleman, the Luxe Bidet Neo 120 has soured me on pooping in bidet-less toilets forever. It's shown me the difference between rubbing peanut butter out of shag carpeting with a paper towel, and that sparkling clean feeling you get right when you step out of the shower. The unit took me all of about 10 minutes to install on my existing toilet with only a wrench. The easy-to-control flow valve allows you to provide just the right amount of water pressure for a full range of cleaning, from 'gentle trickling stream' to 'full-on Silkwood decontamination,' ensuring the end of your bowel movement leaves you feeling cleaner and more refreshed than using just toilet paper alone. Even flush-able wet wipes pale in comparison." — Mercury Price: $29.95 (available in two colors)
Btw, the Luxe Bidet Neo 120 was our $$$ pick for
best toilet paper (well, best way to get your butt clean) on BuzzFeed Reviews!
mini smart projector whose small size, powerful speaker, and vivid picture will make for some memorable movie nights in or outside. First up? Father of the Bride.
The projector pairs with your phone and can stream from Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and YouTube.
Promising review: "We have several friends with large projector displays — huge boxes with lots of wires, a giant screen, etc. We initially wanted something like that, but when we came across this item, it was exactly what we were looking for. We travel a lot and we wanted to be able to bring something small and portable with us without lugging an entire bag of gear. This projector is exactly that! The battery life is great and the picture quality is awesome for such a small device. I haven't once though to myself, man this picture quality is bad. It's a bit of trade-off, but if portability is your biggest concern, this is the device for you. We use it for watching movies and sports outside, and it's perfect for that. The size is just amazing for what it can do. We've downloaded some movies directly to the device so we can use it when we don't have wifi or cell reception. Love this thing!" — ebp913
Price: $299.99 (originally $349.99)
picture frame so their favorite wedding photo can have a place of honor as soon as it arrives.
Promising review: "Whoa! It took me a long time to find this kind of picture frame! They look so modern, different, and expensive. The multi-dimensional look from the side is great! It's heavy and the metal is very good quality. It's actually bigger than 8x10, so you can fit your picture and still have space around it." — Jeannette
Price: $12+ (available in five sizes)
And of course — the reason wedding registries were invented — a
KitchenAid Mixer. I'm not saying that the promise of a new KitchenAid is the reason I want to get married...but I'm not NOT saying it.
Promising review: "This is the classic lifetime wedding gift. This literally will last 40 years, as my wife has the one from her mother. The item we bought is for our daughter so she will never have to buy another one in her lifetime. This mixer does everything you want for food preparation in the kitchen if you buy the right attachment." — Byron J. Guidry Price: $279+ (available in 44 colors)

Here's Why A KitchenAid Mixer Might Change Your Life."
Happy wedding season, everyone! Wishing you all a lifetime of happiness (and a KitchenAid).
