Weddings are magical. Celebrating the love between two people is a special honor, which makes finding a thoughtful, relevant, and useful gift a top priority for many guests. Whether you’re the lucky one to be getting married and are looking for ideas to add to your wedding registry, or you’re a guest on the hunt for a topnotch crowd-pleaser, we have you covered with a list of the most popular wedding registry gifts of 2022 from the experts at The Knot.
From every at-home chef’s favorite device, the KitchenAid Stand Mixer, to our go-to cordless vacuum cleaner from Dyson to smart home accessories like the Ring Video Doorbell, this list has a little bit of everything to gift newlyweds.
1. KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Quart Stand Mixer
With more than 13,000 reviews on Amazon, it’s no wonder that the iconic KitchenAid stand mixer is a popular wedding registry gift. Our experts love the wildly popular stand mixer for its stainless-steel mixing bowl that can hold up to 5 quarts. It’s the ideal size for most baking needs—capable of holding enough mix for up to nine dozen cookies or four loaves of bread.
2. Dyson Cyclone V10 Cordless Vacuum
Quality household cleaning products are one of the best items for newlyweds to ask for or receive. Dyson sets the standard for cordless vacuum cleaners. The V10 is among our experts’ top picks for the best cordless vacuums for cleaning the house due to its ability to suck up crumbs, dust, pet hair, dirt, and debris for up to 60 minutes on a single charge.
3. Instant Pot Vortex Plus Air Fryer Oven
Air fryers are all the rage right now, and, according to The Knot, the most requested one on people’s wedding registry is the Instant Pot Vortex Plus. It’s a great mid-range air fryer with seven functions that include air fry, roast, dehydrate, bake, reheat, broil, and rotisserie. We love it for its quick preheating, customizable cooking programs, and simple digital touch screen.
4. iRobot Roomba i3+ Robot Vacuum
Among the most requested cleaning products on wedding registries is one of our top choices for picking up pet hair. Go for the Roomba i3+ with the self-emptying feature, which makes cleaning a breeze. After each cleaning, the machine empties itself into an allergen-sealed bag that traps 99 percent of mold, pet dander, and pollen. Our experts like that the bag can take up to 60 days to fill, so you don’t have to empty it often.
5. Dyson Pure Hot & Cool Link Air Purifier
Stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter, while achieving healthy air quality year-round with the Dyson Pure Hot & Cool Link Air Purifier. It’s one of our top picks for the best air purifiers of 2022 thanks to the fact that it filters particles of 0.3 microns in size while also functioning as a fan or space heater.
6. Silpat Silicone Baking Set
A handy addition to the kitchen is our favorite silicone baking mats from Silpat. It’s ideal for creating a nonstick surface for baking while providing even heat distribution. The best part? It allows for a quick and easy cleanup. The mat has a fiberglass mesh interior core encased in food-grade silicone, and is safe to use in the oven, freezer, and microwave at temperatures ranging from -40 degrees Fahrenheit to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
7. Vitamix Professional 750 Series 10-Speed Blender
Vitamix is the crème de la crème of blenders, which is why we recommend it as one of the best gifts for cooks. This professional series blender is top of the line with its pre-programmed settings that make preparing hot soups, smoothies, or frozen cocktails a cinch. All you have to do is choose the right setting, press the button, and the Vitamix will blend for the right length of time to achieve the perfect consistency and temperature. It even features a self-cleaning option.
8. Caraway Ceramic 12-Piece Cookware Set
Caraway offers some of the best cookware on the market. It’s made with no harmful chemicals that could leach into foods, and features a ceramic-coated aluminum to ensure that food releases freely. This 12-piece set includes a 10.5-inch fry pan, 3-quart saucepan with lid, 6.5-quart Dutch oven with lid, 4.5-quart sauté pan with lid, four magnetic pan racks, and a canvas lid holder with hooks.
9. Ring Video Doorbell
Weddings come with plenty of other big life changes, including new homes. Gift or request a simple, high-tech gadget that offers security and convenience, like the Ring Video Doorbell. It’s our top brand for achieving increased security with a doorbell. This wired doorbell from Ring includes 1080p HD video quality, live view, motion sensing with customizable monitoring zones, and two-way audio, all at an affordable price. It also comes with a Ring Chime you can simply plug into an outlet in your home to hear the doorbell loud and clear.
10. Samsung The Frame TV
A noteworthy splurge that will make a home look undeniably luxe is The Frame TV. Samsung is one of our favorite TV brands on the market. The TV is a perfect choice for aesthetic-obsessed home dwellers. It transforms to art when you’re not watching TV, allowing you to either choose from the Samsung Collection or upload your own pieces.
11. Brooklinen Luxe Core Sheet Set
Here at Bob Vila, we put Brooklinen on a pedestal, and with good reason. We dubbed this set the best bedding overall for its supreme fabric that’s woven using long-staple cotton with a thread count of 480. The material has a sateen weave, resulting in a buttery smooth texture and a slightly luminous appearance. This set includes a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two pillowcases with envelope closures.
12. Zwilling J.A. Henckels Opus 45-Piece Flatware Set
A stylish new set of flatware is a great gift to give or receive. With service for eight, this set is made from high quality 18/10 stainless steel. Each handle features a gentle curve that boasts an elegant contemporary European design. J.A. Henckels is among our favorite flatware set brands.
