What to give as a wedding gift?

A wedding is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the lives and relationships of those closest to you. Naturally, when you receive a beautiful wedding invitation in the mail, you probably get excited for the couple. However, for many people that excitement quickly turns to anxiety when it comes time to pick out the perfect wedding gift.

You know you want to give the couple something special, something that will help them remember their day. But finding the right gift to mark this special occasion often feels like a daunting task, even more so when there’s no wedding registry to pull from. Fortunately, gift giving can be easy by turning to the tried-and-true gifts of small kitchen appliances.

For the new couple setting up house, kitchen appliances are not only practical and appreciated, but they also help the newlywed’s settle in and start their lives together. Because they may not have a fully functional kitchen, each gift helps build an inventory of useful appliances.

Basic appliances, like coffee makers or slow cookers, can make great wedding gifts. Even for couples that already have established households, appliances can still be a good gift giving option. In this case, opt for higher end models of common appliances or choose a specialty appliance to compliment an already stocked kitchen.

Let’s take a closer look at twelve of the most popular kitchen appliances you should consider giving as a wedding gift.

1. Stand Mixer

Stand mixers have long been some of the most popular wedding gifts for a reason. Hardworking and versatile, a high quality stand mixer makes daily meal prep easy.

From whipping up some mashed potatoes to mixing bread dough, a stand mixer is an appliance that can get everyday use. When buying a stand mixer for a gift, be sure to get a heavy-duty model with a motor capable of tackling hard jobs like mixing together bread dough or dense cookie batter. Kitchen Aid mixers, often thought of as the gold standard for stand mixers, can be a good choice.

Some mixers, like the popular KitchenAid model, even come with a wide range of optional accessories, transforming them into a multi-purpose kitchen appliance. Here are some popular stand mixer attachments:

  • Ice cream maker
  • Pasta maker
  • Professional meat grinder
  • Roto slicer and shredder
  • Food grinder
  • View complete list of attachments

Consider going in together with a friend or family member to purchase a joint gift. With the expanded budget, you can give a stand mixer outfitted with several accessories.

2. Coffee Maker

What better way to start off a couple’s mornings together than with a freshly brewed cup of coffee? From standard coffee makers to extravagant espresso makers, today’s coffee makers come in an impressive range of styles and models.

For a new household, a basic coffee maker can be a good choice, but sometimes a new household requires an upgrade. Options range from a single cup brewer complete with an insulated carafe to go to a more traditional 12-cup drip coffee maker.

If you really want to get something special for your friends, consider going for a coffee maker and grinder combo. Some models come equipped with the ability to grind beans for each pot, taking coffee making to the next level. For the coffee fanatic, try an espresso machine to add some daily luxury to their mornings.

3. Blender

Not all blenders were created equal.

For a memorable wedding gift, choose a quality blender with a large capacity, several blades, and a variety of settings. Be sure that the blender you choose has a secure lid and is easy to wash. Dishwasher safe is an almost universally appreciated feature.

The best thing about blenders and what makes them truly wonderful gifts is that they are useful in all different types of cooking. Whether your newlywed friends like to bake and cook or simply like a healthy green smoothie every now and then, a blender is sure to please.

4. Juicer

Dash Juicer

For health-conscious couples, a juicer can make a thoughtful wedding gift.

Unlike a standard blender, a juicer is designed specifically to quickly blend fruits and vegetables into a fine juice. This product will help your friends get all of the nutrients that fruits and vegetables offer in form of a tasty juice.

Options are available ranging from a large capacity juicer to models that juice directly into a grab-and-go container. Another option to consider is whether your friends would prefer a centrifugal juicer or a masticating juicer, both of which offer their own perks. If you’re not sure which model to purchase, read our buyers guide or simply ask the newlywed’s which they might prefer.

5. Toaster

Sure, a toaster is a common wedding gift, but for good reason. Set your toaster apart by getting your favorite newlyweds a toaster that goes above and beyond the traditional appliance.

Modern toasters can not only toast bread quickly, they also have the advantage of being able to accommodate more than the standard two pieces of bread at a time. Some toasters are even equipped to handle other types of foods. Knowing your friends’ appetites and taste can help you pick an appropriate appliance.

6. Slow Cooker

Cooking for two can be a big change from the grab-and-go sandwiches of single life. Although preparing healthy meals may be a priority for a young couple, the last thing most newlyweds want to do is spend hours in the kitchen. This is where a gift of a slow cooker can come to their rescue.

Many slow cooker models offer removable crocks for easy storage and cleaning. Other features, like a delayed timer and a warming setting, take an ordinary slow cooker to an indispensable kitchen appliance.
