The Best Wedding Gifts for Brides & Grooms: What’s On My Wedding Registry

As you guys know, I’ve been living out of a suitcase for the last 3 years, which means when it comes to basic household necessities I have NOTHING! (and even though Kenny and I will be traveling just as much as ever, we do want to have a home when we get married (hah!) we need a place to put all our stuff!)

Since I’m starting from scratch when it comes to building out our first home, doing our registry was one of my absolute favorite parts of wedding planning. (Along with finding my wedding dress, and designing our save the dates and invitations!) and I’m so excited about the gifts we’re starting to get from our loved ones. Here are some of my favorite things from my registry – which make for great gifts for any upcoming weddings you’re attending, your own registry, or just a gift to yourself!

BTW – did you know everything on Zola is on sale right now?

Here are my registry must-haves:

A wine refrigerator

As you guys know, I love wine. I go to Napa Valley probably more than anyone you’ve ever met, and am always researching new wine brands to fall in love with. 

Wine Enthusiast 2-temperature Wine fridge – $259, Macys

If you gift a couple who loves wine a wine fridge, they’ll think of you every time they pop open a bottle of champagne or wind down with a really good cabernet. How great of a gift is that?

A really, really good set of knives

My future mother-in-law introduced me to Shun knives – and they are the best of the best! Seriously, cooking with these is a DREAM, and I’m dying to have my own set. This is an expensive gift, but it’s good to have a few splurge-worthy gifts on your registry, and a good knife set that will last you FOREVER is a must for any wedding gift wishlist.

Silverware & Steak Knives

Don’t forget to have silverware on your registry! I love these classic ones from WS.


Obsessed with these gorgeous heavy-weight steak knives from Williams Sonoma

A really nice French Coffee Press

I’m obsessed with our Espro P7 and think it’s the most beautiful and DELICIOUS french press on the planet. I have been using it every day for my morning blended island coffee. Cannot recommend this french press highly enough – it’s a must have on your registry if you like coffee. 

Available in beautiful stainless steel or chic matte white

The Breville “Bluicer”

Blender and a juicer in one? YES PLEASE. So you can juice your fruits and put them straight into your smoothies, or just use one or the other. Also works amazing for margaritas, frose, and other frozen cocktails!

Parachute Home Sateen Sheets

Parachute has taken the bedding world by storm and for good reason – their bedding is BY FAR the best out there right now. They’re so unreal. We asked for the sateen! 

This down alternative duvet insert is also amazing!

Fancy plates!

I chose these gorgeous Vietri gold plates for our dinnerware on our registry. I think they are so beautiful and perfect for entertaining.  

Available on Bloomingdales here, and on Amazon here.

Really nice wine glasses

The best wine glasses have the ability to completely amplify a wine’s taste – and let’s face it, they’re so elegant you’re probably already planning your first dinner party – or blind wine tasting party.

This marble & gold vanity tray from Williams Sonoma

If you can’t tell already, I love white and gold, so I have a ton of marble and gold goodies on my registry – like this vanity tray 

Cheese plate

I love a good girls’ wine and cheese night, so this one was a must for my registry. 

Or this one off of Amazon

also these cheese knives

Monogrammed cutting board

I’m a sucker for anything monogrammed, and this cutting board is going to be a staple in my kitchen.

A tea kettle

I’m obsessed with everything SMEG, and am so excited about this tea kettle. How cute is their retro brand vibe? 

A toaster

A coffee machine

If we’re going retro-chic with the SMEG brand, I gotta have the coffee machine too right?

A dyson vacuum

Nothing beats a Dyson vacuum. This one is a MUST on any registry. And is one of the top gifts on my wish list. 

Shop Dyson Vacuums here

A custom welcome mat

I think this would make the cutest couples shower gift or bridal shower gift 

Nice suitcases

What better gift for the honeymoon than matching suitcases?

West Elm, set of 2

Or, if you want to splurge – these ROAM suitcases are my absolute favorite high-quality suitcase out there right now.
