So, I did some research to find out why we keep gravitating to those age old traditional gifts. There has to be a reason why some of the gifts are favourite year after year. How do they manage to find a place in all wedding registries and what makes them best wedding gifts? Here is a list of traditional and most loved gifts that you can add to your wedding registry or gift a friend without thinking twice.

In fact, I bet, there won’t be a single wedding registry that does not feature them. Try giving small items like a toaster, coffee maker or food processor if you don’t have the budget for an expensive gift. But, do make sure that it is what the couple wants or needs. You don’t want your gift to end up duplicated or gifted forward.
