Guide to Wedding Gifts and the Gift Registry


How does a gift registry work?

Gift registries are a good way for a groom and bride-to-be to graciously ask for gifts that they really want. It also allows the gift giver to buy something that they know will be greatly appreciated. The registries themselves are not maintained by the couple, but are usually hosted by a retailer – usually a department store.

Once they have selected items for their registry, their friends and family can choose which particular ones that the couple might like for their upcoming wedding. The gift giver usually then travels to the store and purchases the item or visits the store’s website.

Once purchased, the clerk or staff will remove the item from the registry so there are no duplicate items to the recipient. They’ll also physically put aside your gift and deliver them to the couple.

How do you choose the best wedding gifts?

If the bride and groom haven’t created a gifts registry then here are some suggestions that can help you find the perfect wedding gift for their special day.

  • Wedding gifts should reflect the needs and interest of the bride and groom. Usually household items such as kitchenware or homewares are acceptable gifts to give.
  • If you know the bride and groom well, then you can be a bit more adventurous when you’re shopping. If you’re a casual friend or a colleague, a classic gift is usually the way to go. Personalised gifts specific to either the bride or groom should be given at the bridal shower or bachelor party.
  • If the couple has registered, the department store is usually listed on the wedding invitation. If you can’t find those items, make sure you find alternate items at other stores that are almost the same.
  • Don’t feel obligated to spend a fortune on wedding gifts. What matters most is that you’ve put thought into it.
  • Talk to the family and close friends to get an idea of what types of wedding gifts would be ideal.
  • Think about the age of the couple; if they’re young and starting a new home where gifts like appliances would be favourable. If it’s a second marriage, the type of gifts needed might be different, especially if both already have established homes.
