Tracking down the very best wedding gifts can be a nerve-racking task. After all, you still might need to find a dress to wear and—in some cases—finalize travel arrangements. We’re here to lighten the burden that often comes with receiving a wedding invite with a guide to our very favorite presents for newlyweds.
Items to make their home feel extra special are always a great place to start, especially beautiful and functional presents like Isobel’s eclectic bookshelf. Or perhaps this is the moment to send them off with another toast. Celebratory flutes by Baccarat and limited-edition bottles created by Glenfiddich will keep the party going for the love birds.
Below, 30 best wedding gifts for every type of couple.
