Whether you’re looking for the perfect wedding gift, or are newly engaged and just starting to think about your registry, there are a handful of kitchen items that every couple should consider. To figure out what the best wedding gifts of 2019 are (so far) we mined our own registry data at Williams Sonoma.
These are the best gifts, the classic gifts, the ones that a newlywed couple will have in their home for a very long time (if not the rest of their lives together). It’s the flatware, the blenders, and the roasting pans — all those good things.
Thousands of couples have worked with Williams Sonoma’s wedding registry, The One, where in addition to registering at Williams Sonoma, they also can add items from our sister brands, West Elm and Pottery Barn. Couples who work with The One also have access to private appointments in store and there’s the potential for special free bonus gifts when you register for select items. We might be biased, but we think it’s a pretty sweet deal.
Here are the top 10 most popular wedding gifts from Williams Sonoma this year. There are plenty of classic options, but there are a few things that might surprise you, too.
The most popular item on Williams Sonoma’s registry is this essential cookware set from All-Clad. Surprised? We’re not! This set basically has everything you need to really get cooking: 2 fry pans, 2 saucepans, a sauté pan, and a big stockpot. And of course, because it’s All-Clad, you know it’s all super high-quality.
Give your friends and family the gift of style with this gorgeous copper baking set! It’ll look great with their next batch of blueberry muffins. The set includes a cookie sheet, cooling rack, muffin pan, half-sheet pan, and two cake pans.
If the soon-to-be-wedded couple somehow doesn’t already have an Instant Pot (shock!), then your job as a gift-giver is easy. The rumors are true: This trendy kitchen appliance has 9 different cooking functions. You can pressure cook, slow cooker, and even make a batch of homemade yogurt.
Quality silverware makes any meal just a little more special. This elegant five-piece set includes a salad fork, dinner fork, dinner knife, soup soup, and a teaspoon.
Whether you’re setting up your mise en place for an epic cooking session, or need a giant bowl for a big green salad, a kitchen can never have too many prep and serving bowls. That’s why this 10-piece glass mixing bowl set is an excellent and classic gift for newlyweds.
A really, really great blender is something you’ll always find on wedding registries. Why? Because once you’ve made perfect smoothies, nut butters, and even soup in a high-powered blender, there’s no going back. This Vitamix comes in 5 different colors and has a programmable timer.
This 3-piece pasta set from KitchenAid let’s you create the dreamiest homemade pasta at home.The two cutter attachments included in the set help you make fettuccine and spaghetti.
It’s probably not a surprise that a KitchenAid stand mixer made the list of our most-popular gifts on our wedding registry. But what is interesting, is that this specific limited-edition light blue stand mixer with a ceramic bowl tops the charts. It’s a little bit smaller than the commercial-size mixer and it has a slight retro feel. We’re sold!
A great toaster oven is sneakily one of the best appliances to have in your kitchen. No, really! You can roast veggies, toast a sandwich, and even bake cookies. This one from Breville has 10 different preset functions, including a pizza and bagel setting.
You might only use a roasting pan like this a couple days a year during the holidays, but that’s what makes it special. This piece is something a newlywed couple will use for the rest of their lives.
