As couples begin the wedding planning process, one of the first items on the agenda is your wedding registry. Choosing the right gifts can be tricky since there are so many things to consider. It can include items in every price range, from luxury items to more simple and practical ones. There can be some stress involved in picking out gifts for a newly engaged couple. So, to help, we have created a list of the 10 best wedding shower gifts for 2023!
Top ideas to make sure newly engaged couples receive the best wedding shower gifts in 2023
1. Return address stamp
Anyone recently married can attest; there’s a lot of envelope addressing throughout the wedding process. From Save the Dates to Invitations and Thank Yous, you’ll write your address hundreds of times. Our top recommendation for every couple at their wedding shower is a return address stamp. It’s a low-cost gift that will be a huge life saver and will most definitely get used.
2. Cake cutting set
Another inexpensive, highly-practical shower gift is a cake-cutting set. This item is usually overlooked when wedding planning so couples often scramble to purchase one last minute. Adding a nice set to your wedding registry will save you worry down the road, and the set can be used when hosting in the future.
A good set of luggage is an awesome wedding shower gift for any couple. Whether you travel often for work or just need a good set for the honeymoon, luggage is something that couples often won’t purchase for themselves, but will get years of use out of.
4. Robot vacuum
While not the most glamorous gift, a robot vacuum is an amazing addition to any wedding registry. This is a high-ticket item that will save you countless hours of cleaning, so make sure it’s high up on your wish list!
5. Home gym equipment
If you love staying fit or are looking to get in better shape before your wedding day, exercise equipment is a great addition to your wedding registry. Whether you’re looking for high-price items like a peloton bike, or something smaller like kettlebells, these make great gifts for your wedding shower.
6. Espresso machine
Are you or your partner a coffee lover? If so, a good espresso machine is a must-add item to your registry. Learning to make espresso drinks at home is not only fun, but can save you money in the long term by replacing your morning trip to the coffee shop.
7. Tool kit
A tool kit is a great item to add to your registry whether you’re handy or need some tools on hand just in case. Depending on your needs, you can choose a small starter set or something more all-encompassing.
8. Subscription services
If you are looking for a gift that keeps giving, adding subscriptions to your wedding registry is a great option. Your friends and family can purchase a month or a whole year of any service, and you’ll get to keep enjoying the gift long after your wedding.
9. Gift Cards
Gift cards are an amazing option for couples who don’t have a lot of space for physical gifts or prefer experiences to items. You can register for gift cards from your favorite restaurants, stores, or even salons and spas.
When it comes to gifts, cash is king. Thankfully online registries now offer cash funds, making it even easier for guests to gift you money. Consider making specific cash funds for items like a home purchase or your honeymoon, so guests will feel like they’re contributing to something specific.
