Ah love is in the air and weddings are popping up on calendars everywhere. My coworker just returned from her honeymoon and a relative just left for hers and a cousin (plus two other coworkers) is starting to plan hers. With so much to do while in the planning stages, one fun part is creating the wedding registry.
With so many couples already in the living together stage upon engagement, the reality is that the traditional items that may have appeared on registries long ago - even from my event - are not quite practical as they are most likely already in use in their home. So I've gathered up my top 5 must haves that will be appreciated and used by the newly weds.
Dyson - V6 Bagless Cordless Vacuum
Gotta love this Dyson. It's compact but packs a punch in cleaning power. It's great for those living in apartments as well as condos. Since it is a little pricier than my go to spending of $100-$300, this would be a fantastic group gift. Perhaps coworkers wanting to pitch in for something that they have worked with for a while. No need to limit what goes on your registry - dream big! Friends love to go in on $$ gifts together.
Koolatron - 12-Bottle Wine Chiller
This is the perfect size for the couple who enjoys their wine and starting off their collection right. You can customize the shelves to fit your bottles and it just looks cool when your friends come over for dinner.
GoPro - HERO HD Waterproof Action Camera
This is definitely high on my list to add to one's wedding registry. It is compact yet takes amazing photos and videos in and out of the water. It's compact to take along on vacations and trips and capture every loving moment (before and after kids).
simplehuman - 40L Sensor Trash Can
Time to upgrade that plastic bin with this sleek simplehuman can. Keeps your kitchen clear of litter plus no need to touch with the super cool sensor! Ok. I really want to upgrade mine to this as well and that's why I added it to my must haves. It's definitely a step above to my basic simplehuman can.
SONOS - PLAY:1 Wireless Speaker for Streaming Music
These modern wireless speakers will be perfect for the bathroom or bedroom for streaming all your rad music straight from your phone, tablet or PC. You can connect as many speaks as you want throughout the house which is fantastic.
