Whether you are buying a gift for a couple without a registry or looking for something different from the usual wedding go-to, here are a few of our favorite off-registry gifts. In modern times, less couples are registering for traditional pots and pans. Many people are already living in established homes before marrying, so they already have a full set of flatware and a coffee maker at their disposal.
This is why we suggest gifting one of these luxe home essentials. They make great gifts because they take a fresh approach to registry items. This means that you won't end up buying the same gift as 3 other guests. And if the couple does already have something similar, these gifts will be a welcomed upgrade to the existing counterpart.
First, we want to introduce Coyuchi. The California brand produces incredible linens- ranging from bed sheets to bath robes- that look as beautiful as they feel. Coyuchi incorporates nature into every aspect of their company. Their color palette draws inspiration from cool ocean blues and sandy desert neutrals. Every textile is derived from organic cotton, processed consciously, and made ethically.
The Organic Linen Chambray Minimalist Set is our absolute favorite Coyuchi product. The sheets feel like a dream and are the highest quality linen that we have tested. The newly weds will be thrilled to have this little luxury in their home. The bedding regulates temperature wonderfully, is soft as can be, and looks gorgeous. If you are looking for more options, we also love their selection of blankets and throws. The quality is definitely up to our standards!
Another brand that we love is BoxFox. They make gifting easy by creating curated, pre-wrapped gift boxes that can be shipped directly to the celebrated couple. The Happily Ever After box is a sweet and easy pick for any couple that loves a morning in together. It includes:
Grosche // Espresso Maker
Brooklyn Candle Studio // Love Potion
Tuxton // Stackable Espresso Cup
Williams Sonoma // Newlywed Cookbook
The Little Market // Medium Wood Heart Bowl
Copper Pastry Server
Espresso Tea Towel
These boxes are especially great for a destination wedding. Just bring a card to the actual wedding and have the box sent directly to their home.
Now, there are knives and then there are knives. WÃ¼sthof Knives make a wonderful gift for the couple that loves to cook or entertain. The quality goes above and beyond the typical registry item, and a good knife is always under rated. We suggest pairing the Classic 3-Piece Cheese Set with a stunning End-Grain Acacia Chopping Block for the ultimate match made in heaven. The new couple will think of you at every gathering they host in their new home together!
While the couple is sure to be gifted a few bottles of wine, a lovely set of high quality teas is bound to be original. A delicious loose leaf tea is truly a luxury, and Tea Forté sells perfectly-measured pouches of loose leaf tea for individual servings. Our favorite set is the Single Steeps Tea Chest Gift Set.
This set includes 84 servings plus accessories for him & her. Each of Tea Forté's Single Steeps Tea Chests offer 28 loose tea pouches, designed to make a cup of tea at home, the office, or on the go. This set includes three Tea Chests, one of each: Herbal, Green and Classic, along with two KATI Steeping Cups & Infusers (Noir & Blanche), as well as two sugar & creamer sets, one for each tea drinker. All items are presented in a gold foil-stamped gift box ready for gifting.
As the months begin to cool down, this makes a great gift for a fall or winter wedding!
Lastly, these robes from Splendid will feel just like those soft, luxe hotel robes that the couple will remember from their honeymoon. They are the perfect amount of warm and cozy to get you out of bed on those chilly mornings!
These bathrobes feature on-seam pockets, a hood, self-tie belt and is designed with 100% Turkish cotton to ensure softness and comfort. In addition, the robes are highly absorbent and machine washable, making it easy to wear them over and over again. The style comes in rose/pink and white/navy stripe- perfect for him and her! Happy Gifting!
