I hope that you had a wonderful Thankgiving weekend, and didn't spend too much money shopping on Black Friday! With the holidays rapidly approaching, I wanted to take the time to share my top 10 recommendations to add to your Wedding Registry and your holiday wish list! Below I have outlined my top must-have items for your home as well as my favorite Wedding Registry sites for you! Click the photos below to view each product in more detail!
Gift One: The Samsung Frame TV
The Samsung Frame TV is a MUST HAVE! With the TV being a strong focal point in almost everyone's living room, it's great to have the option for your TV to showcase different art when it is off. It's the perfect functional piece of artwork to place over your fireplace mantle since it doubles as a Smart TV with a 4K QLED screen. When the TV is off and displaying your preferred artwork it operates based off of a motion sensor and will turn off entirely after a specified amount of time of your choosing. The Samsung Frame TV also comes with Samsung TV, which is basically free cable as it has all of the channels you would otherwise stream on cable TV. It also will adjust the brightness and sound based on it's environment. We have this TV, and it is one of my favorite home purchases to date!
Gift Two: Ninja Air Fryer
If you don't already have an air fryer then do yourself a favor, and RUN don't walk to go get one because they are a GAME CHANGER. We held off on an air fryer for so long until we were finally gifted one for Christmas last year, and let me tell you it is by far our most used appliance. We don't even have a microwave anymore, YUP! Air fryers make cooking so quick and easy, and a much healthier option than alternatives. I have heard the most amazing things about the Ninja air fryer although I have not personally used this one, it definitely has come the most recommended by far.
Gift Three: Copper Cookware Set
If you don't have a cookware set already on your Wedding Registry, then you definitely need to add one unless you already have a good set on hand. We love our Lagostina Copper Cookware set because not only does copper cookware look beautiful hanging in your kitchen, it actually cooks quicker and significantly more evenly than regular cookware. We got this set during. major sale at Macy's a few years ago, and it has held up beautifully. However, when using copper you do have to polish the cookware overtime more so than you would need to with stainless steel.
Gift Four: Classic White Scalloped Dish Set
Personally, I love the look of white scalloped dishes because they can be used for everyday use but they can also easily be dressed up for nice dinner parties without having to purchase two sets of dishes - everyday and fine china. This Monique Lhuillier (my favorite couture wedding dress designer) dish set from Pottery Barn is absolutely gorgeous at a reasonable price. These were not out when we purchased ours, which was a little more cost effective than these and I will link them below as well because we get so many compliments on them! https://www.birchlane.com/kitchen-tabletop/pdp/dix-16-piece-dinnerware-set-service-for-4-b000325909.html
Gift Five: Breville The Barista Express Espresso Machine
Let's be honest - I think we all spend WAY too much money on Starbucks. Well I know that I do at least! I do not have a high end coffee and espresso machine, but this one is definitely on my wish list to get at some point. This can make all of your coffee shop favors as well as espresso. So if you go to Starbucks, or the local coffee shop, at least 100 times a year then this machine will basically pay for itself in a years time and save you lots of money in the long run!
Gift Six: Anthropology Glassware
I love Anthropology Glassware, and glassware is an excellent way to add elevate your everyday tablescape. I have the first set of luster glasses, but I would love to expand my collection over time. You can't go wrong with any of their glassware collections, and you will be sure to receive plenty of compliments from your future guests!
Gift Seven: Kitchenaid Mixer
The Kitchenaid Mixer is a staple in every kitchen because it is so much more than just a mixer! Kitchenaid offers multiple attachments that you can add to your mixer to make pasta, grind food (even meat), cut and spiral vegetables, and so much more. I definitely recommend adding a Kitchenaid Mixer to your Wedding Registry if you enjoy cooking and baking because there are so many ways that you can use it!
Gift Eight: GE Opal Ice Maker
The Opal Ice Maker has been on our wish list for sometime now because of all of the raving reviews we have heard about it from family and friends! The Opal Ice Maker makes the nugget ice that everyone loves at Sonic or similar places. It's the perfect amount of crunch! If you're in need of an ice maker, or have a strong preference for your ice, then this is the best ice maker on the market to add to your Wedding Registry!
Gift Nine: Wüsthof Gourmet 16-Piece Knife Set
The Wüsthof Knife Set is one of the best on the market, and any good cook will most likely vouch for that. Whether you decide to add this knife set to your Wedding Registry or not, I definitely recommend having a good knife set on your list. A good knife set will last you years, and a bad one will require you to replace it way too often to be worth it!
Gift Ten: Luggage Set
If you plan to honeymoon after the Wedding, or just travel in general as newlyweds, then I recommend having a good luggage set on your Wedding Registry if you do not have a set already. I love this personalized luggage set from Mark and Graham that looks great and is monogrammed so that your luggage is easily recognizable at the baggage claim.
