The 23 Best Wedding Gifts Every Couple Wants (for Every Budget)

by Sophie Miura

Finding the perfect present is hard enough for a birthday or during the holidays, but the stakes are even higher when it's for a wedding. You want a gift that celebrates the couple's new life together, speaks to their personalities, and will stand the test of time—without spending a small fortune.

If you're searching for a surefire hit, the team at Zola say one gift topped their registry in 2017: a KitchenAid Artisan Series Mixer (the most popular color is aqua sky).
