Wedding gifts are notoriously hard to get right—the best ones are both useful and personal. Let’s face it: We could all use a little help in this department, so we looked to Zola. The experts at the registry service pored over their internal data to come up with a list of the most popular presents, and colorful kitchen items topped it.
Building a good cookware arsenal can take years (and numerous failed recipes), and while there’s something to be said about sticking to classic hues, there’s no reason pots and pans have to be boring. Come to think of it, there’s no reason cookware even has to be focused solely on skillets; there’s a whole world of useful tools and equipment that rookie chefs and Claire Saffitz devotees alike would love to receive. We have a few ideas to get things cooking, according to the type of newlyweds on your list.
If They’re Not Big on Cleanup
A stove-to-table vessel, like Great Jones’s The Dutchess, is the way to go. And who can resist this sunny yellow?
If Their Sweet Tooth Has Never Failed Them
There’s a reason KitchenAid mixers are such a perennial favorite for wedding gifting—they’ll last for years (even decades!) to come. This minty hue is a refreshing twist on the classic.
If They Always Host Friend-Group Dinners
A triple-coated enamel baking dish not only looks chic but also holds enough for a feast. Dansk’s version features detailed handles that will add a vintage feel to the kitchen.
If They Will Never Surrender Their Postmates Habit
Don’t spend your time anguishing over the right cookware when what they really need is dinnerware—we love Year & Day’s blush set, which you can completely customize to fit the couple’s dining needs.
If Their Every Choice Is Led by Aesthetics
A designer spice grinder is likely not something anyone would buy for themselves, but it makes for quite the countertop jewelry. This lacquered ’80s-inspired gem will even make assembling salads feel like a luxury activity.
