Wedding gifts can be a challenge for a variety of factors—every couple is completely different, budgets come into play, and you're essentially competing with the entire guest list. You don't want to be that person who gives a random vase that ends up being regifted later on or is left with the miscellaneous leftovers from the registry, which is why we're here to make your job as a wedding guest even easier.

Below, we've narrowed down the best wedding gifts for every type of couple, and they're ones that'll make them feel special. From customized luggage tags for the jet-setters to Scandinavian lamps for the design geeks, the items on this list will have you receiving a lengthy thank-you card.

For the Homebodies

If quality time is their love language and indoors is where they thrive, spoil them with items that'll make their home feel extra cozy. A luxurious weighted blanket or a warm-scented candle will really set the tone.

For the Culinary Experts

For the foodie couple, we've organized an array of options that'll take their kitchen to restaurant level. Whether they cook daily or like to use occasions to cook together, the items here will be greatly appreciated by them and their bellies!

For the Wonderful Hosts

For the couple that will use any excuse to host, help them take their favorite duties to the next level. A custom engraved knife set to pair with a savory cheese set? You'll be wanting to invite yourself over.

The Design Lovers

Help the couple turn their home into their very own curated museum with pieces that draw a sharp focus to aesthetic and design.

For the Jet-Setters

If their honeymoon is just one small check on their list of vacations, skip the homewares and get something the couple will be able to use on their travels.

She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
