Great Kitchen Gifts for Newlyweds
Getting married and moving into a new home together is a very exciting period in any couple’s relationship but it can also be a very expensive time too. With this in mind, if you are shopping for a present to give to friends that are about to tie the knot, something practical for the home is always a good choice. Deciding how much to spend on a wedding gift is the first thing you need to do and whilst there are no hard and fast rules to follow, there are numerous online guides that will help you to set a reasonable budget. If you are happy to spend a good chunk of cash, the following suggestions may be of interest:
- An oven – Every home needs an oven and because decent models are not cheap, your gesture is sure to be appreciated by the couple in question. However, there are a few factors that need to be considered before you inflict any damage on your credit card. Ovens come in all shapes and sizes so the first thing you will need to do is to find out if your friends’ new home has a fitted kitchen or not. If it does, you will have to figure out a way to gain access to the property and take some measurements. It would be a shame to spend hundreds of pounds on a top-of-the-range convection oven only to find that it cannot be installed in the kitchen due to space limitations.
- A dishwasher – Nobody likes to be greeted with a pile of dirty cutlery when they head to the kitchen in the morning for breakfast, which is why a reliable dishwasher can be an excellent choice of gift. Anything that lightens the load as far as housework is concerned usually goes down well with newlyweds and there are many different models to choose from so whatever your budget, you should be able to find something suitable. There are always some items that need washing by hand however, so something from the range of Blanco sinks that is available in the UK could be a good choice too. A pristine, stainless steel model will look good in any modern kitchen and has the added bonus of being easy to clean.
- A fridge freezer – Food plays an important part in most people’s lives so what better way to treat your friends than to present them with a spacious fridge freezer in which they can store all their favourite snacks? If your friends really enjoy their food, go for the largest model that you can find as it is almost impossible to have too much space as far as fridges are concerned. A decent freezer section will enable them to store a good selection of frozen meals, ready for when you visit.
- A microwave oven – If you like the idea of buying a conventional oven but are not in a position to spend hundreds of pounds on a wedding gift, a microwave oven is sure to come in handy and a decent one can be bought for far less than conventional models. Just make sure that you choose a reasonably powerful model so that your friends can really enjoy the time saving benefits that microwaves have to offer.
There are plenty of smaller items that you might like to consider if you are shopping for a casual acquaintance rather than a close friend, such as saucepans, knives and chopping boards, but if you want to buy something really special for a couple of newlyweds, something from the above list is guaranteed to put a smile on their faces.
