Your wedding gift list must-haves


Hear the words ‘wedding gift list’ and you may immediately conjure up images of china plates, cutlery sets and toasters. However, as times are changing, so are the tastes of newlyweds as more couples are requesting more unique (and sometimes more elaborate) gifts.

After your wedding day, when the excitement subsides a little, you can be sure that the giddiness will return when you sit down to unwrap your wedding gifts. At The Brewery we believe that every couple is different, and that your wedding should be truly unique – so why not make sure your gift list is unique too?  Break tradition with a list of gifts you want, rather than what you need-without a toaster in sight!


If you’re jetting off on your honeymoon straight after your wedding, or simply love to travel, gifts that you can take along with you and use while you’re away are ideal. Increasingly, couples are asking for tech such as action cameras as wedding gifts, which are perfect for capturing every moment of your honeymoon – whether that be snorkelling, skiing or skydiving! Perhaps a little more on the extravagant side, drones are now cropping up on wedding gift lists, enabling you to capture truly breath-taking aerial footage while on your travels.


As it’s getting more commonplace for couples to live together before tying the knot, it’s likely that you’ll own most of your kitchen appliances already. Gone are the days when kettles and toasters were gift-list essentials, as more elaborate and unusual household items begin to take their place.

Wedding lists are an ideal opportunity to ask for those gifts that you wouldn’t necessarily buy for yourself – for example, outdoor pizza ovens are currently one of the most desired gifts for newlyweds, replacing the more traditional baking equipment like hand mixers in the cooking and dining category. While your pizza is cooking, why not pour some wine from your wine cooling cabinet- another must-have on the newlywed gift list!

Fitness enthusiasts

Although many couples are likely to own traditional kitchen appliances, smoothie makers and juicers have been rapidly gaining popularity in recent years. Especially popular with those who enjoy a healthy lifestyle, juicers make for the perfect wedding gift to kick married life off to a healthy start.

Also becoming increasingly popular with active couples is the idea of a ‘home gym’, as gym and fitness equipment such as dumbbells and yoga mats are also being identified as new trends appearing on gift lists.
