These gifts will prove their value over and over throughout the course of your marriage
There are some wedding gifts that just end up standing out among the rest. These are what we call the life-changers. You may be wondering just how life-changing a wedding gift can be. As someone who owns a fair amount of the gifts listed in this blog, I can attest to the fact that my life has legitimately been changed by having and using them.
From saving you time on everyday tasks to helping keep your home clean and healthy, these gifts can make your life so much easier. They give you more time to spend with your spouse, make memories, and focus on the things you enjoy.
I’m all about working smarter, not harder — especially when it comes to the kitchen. When I was adding to my own wedding registry, I underestimated how much I would use a food processor. Which is why I added a 6-cup option thinking it would suffice. Trust me when I say: Go with this 13-cup option and get ready to cut your prep time in half.
If you’re a sparkling water drinker and you’re still buying cans every week at the grocery store, it’s pretty much a guarantee that a SodaStream will truly change your life. The one-touch appliance makes it insanely easy to whip up a fresh bottle of bubbly water on-demand. You won’t miss the cans…I promise.
Having a connected smart home doesn’t have to be complicated. The Google Nest Hub Max can do pretty much anything you need around the house, from assisting in making hands-free video calls to playing your favorite music with quality sound. It also pairs with all your smart home devices so you can control them all from one spot.
Cordless vacuums are so 2022. This year, add a self-emptying Roomba to your wedding registry if you really want to level up your cleaning game. When the machine is full, it empties itself into a disposable bag. Oh, and it connects with your Google Nest Hub, so you can quite literally forget about ever having to vacuum again with handy scheduling features.
There’s a good chance you already know the benefits of silk pillowcases but haven’t made the official switch just yet. Treat yourself to younger, clearer skin and healthy hair when you add this pillowcase set to your wedding registry. Waking up married is already great, but waking up married and with great skin and hair? That seems pretty life-changing to me.
Sure, you may already be planning on adding a new set of pots and pans to your wedding registry, but while you’re at it, why not throw in a cast iron skillet too? Personally, once I added a cast iron skillet to my kitchen rotation, it became our most popular piece of cooking equipment. It generates even, sustained heat, and it gets better the more you use it. Don’t sleep on this one!
Another item that may not come in your typical cookware set is an oversized stock pot. You may not think you’ll use something that takes up so much space, but it’s a game-changer for so many dishes. From steaming seafood with ease to providing you with the perfect depth for deep frying, you’ll get plenty of use out of this.
Getting good sleep can benefit you in just about every way possible — and it all starts with getting comfortable. When you add a mattress pad to your wedding registry, you can look forward to life-changing sleep every night. Whenever my husband and I get home from a vacation, the first thing we say when we go to sleep is that no bed in the world can beat ours. It’s that good.
You might be wondering, if you’re getting such good sleep with your new mattress pad, why would you need to drink coffee? The answer is simple: coffee is amazing. When you have the option to grind your own beans, it can enhance the process and add to your enjoyment of the simple practice of brewing coffee. This grinder from Breville gives you total control while offering the ultimate precision, giving you the perfect cup every time.
I think we can all agree that proper air quality can make a serious difference in your home life. We can also agree that Dyson knows a thing or two about making products with incredible airflow. This air purifier doubles as a heater and fan unit while removing 99.7% of pollutants in your house. With a HEPA filter, you can feel healthier and breathe easier.
