Finding a great wedding gift can be challenging because you want a present both people will like and hopefully enjoy. There's the sentimental present or the practical one they'll use on a daily basis. And if you're lucky you can find something that is all of the above.

To help you get started, here are the best wedding gifts.

Mark & Graham Celebration Wine Bowl

Celebration Wine Bowl

Whether the couple loves outdoor entertaining on a regular basis or just appreciates a quiet night in, here’s a stylish and personalized way to keep wine, champagne, and more on chill. The bowl comes in a silver or gold finish and has a beautifully designed base. Add a touch of personalization with a monogram or their last name (up to 12 characters). 

Parachute Classic Bathrobe

Parachute Classic Bathrobe

Now that the stress of wedding planning is behind them, give the lucky couple a reason to take a load off. Robes make a great wedding gift for almost anyone, and you can't beat the quality of the Parachute Home Robe. This unisex robe is made from 100% long-staple Turkish cotton and comes in either white or gray. Each robe works for any gender, with sizes ranging from small to extra-large. The Parachute robe is a favorite for its ultra-plush quality that (importantly) won't cling after a shower. It has two front pockets, a waist tie, and a shawl collar.

"This bathrobe is dangerously soft. If you have high-quality bath towels, you know what we mean. Once you slip it on after a shower, you’re going to want to stay in it all day, squashing any plans of productivity."—Rebekah Joan, Product Tester

Mouth The Best of “Mouth” Monthly Subscription Club

Mouth

Looking for a gift that keeps on giving? The Best of “Mouth” Monthly Subscription Club is a unique wedding gift that the couple can receive again and again. You can prepay either three months, six months, or 12 months in advance, and each shipment includes four to five curated artisanal food products. With products ranging from cocktail mixes to chocolate bars to pickles, the Mouth subscription box has something for everyone - each item handpicked by Mouth staff.

Artifact Uprising Hardcover Photo Book

Hardcover Photo Book

For a personalized gift to truly make a couple feel special, Artifact Uprising’s photo book is a winner. Start with as few as 40 pages or work your way up to 200-plus and upload your favorite pictures of the couple. Choose between one of six book sizes and the fabric color of the cover. This special book is one the couple’s sure to revisit on special occasions or have permanently displayed on their coffee table.

Uncommon Goods Wedding Keepsake Library

Wedding Keepsake Library

Couples no doubt have mementos from the big wedding day that they just haven’t organized yet, so this is one way to do so. The foldable box comes with a series of labels, files, and small pullout boxes to store a boutonniere, invitations, cake topper, and more of the sentimental clutter. This cloth-covered case is a stylish way to neatly organize those wedding day keepsakes they can’t bear to part with.

iRobot Roomba 690 Robot Vacuum with Wi-Fi Connectivity

iRobot Roomba 690 Robot Vacuum-Wi-Fi Connectivity

Married life means sharing TV shows, dinners at home—and yes, chores. Help make the first year of marriage a little easier with the iRobot Roomba 690 Robot Vacuum. This high-performance vacuum loosens dirt, lifts, and suctions without ever needing to lift a finger. Sensors help control the Roomba, allowing it to focus on dirt-heavy areas in the home. It also works with Amazon Alexa or via a phone app, so it can be programmed and controlled from afar. When this little robot is done cleaning, it tucks away into a wall dock until the next time it goes to work. It also transitions from carpet to hardwood seamlessly and is perfect for pet owners and parents alike.

"The package includes a separate battery-powered “virtual wall” unit that can be set to project either an invisible linear barrier or a circular one. The Roomba won’t cross the invisible barrier, which worked great for preventing access to a room and protecting a cat fountain."—Joy Merrifield, Product Tester

Furbo Dog Camera

Furbo

Here's the perfect gift for the couple that brought their dogs to their wedding. Any animal lover will adore the Furbo Dog Camera, a device that allows a pet owner to see, hear, and reward their fur baby even when they're far away. This Wi-Fi-enabled HD dog camera has night vision and a powerful 160° wide-angle lens so that they can zoom in and see their pet from every corner. But the main attraction of the Furbo is its ability to hold up to 100 treats that can be tossed using an iOS or Android-enabled phone. It sends a notification when the dog barks, and even takes pup selfies when the dog is interacting with the camera.

Minted Serif Date Memento

Serif Date Memento

The Braumbirdy Serif Date Memento is a piece of artwork that will commemorate their big day. Large, graphic letters depict the day they said “I do” in a modern, trendy style on your choice of high-end paper. You can choose between six color combos ranging from black and white to maroon to gray and in any size ranging from 5 x 7 to a whopping 44 x 60 inches. It comes either unframed or framed, with UV-plexi or standard plexiglass and a choice of various materials like reclaimed wood, copper, or chic-looking metal. Everything about the Seif Date is customizable, so you can create a unique gift just for the couple.

Picnic at Ascot Patented Bamboo Cheese/Charcuterie Board with Knife Set

Picnic at Ascot Vienna Transforming Bamboo Cheese Board Set

For nights when a spread of meat and cheese is on the menu, this bamboo charcuterie board will be put to good use. The tiered tray is the perfect way to display light bites. Though it’s 18 inches wide, it actually folds to a compact nine inches when not in use, making it a great choice if kitchen space is limited. Also, the bottom features a hidden drawer with three cheese tools.

Bartesian Premium Cocktail and Margarita Machine

Whipping up a cocktail is quick and easy with Bartesian. Just pop in one of the capsules (margarita, cosmopolitan, gin martini, etc.), add alcohol, and in seconds, it produces a perfectly mixed drink. The capsules, which were created by mixologists, removes the need to know a drink’s ingredients or have a range of mixers on hand. This is a fun gadget to whip out during a cocktail party or for a night of popcorn and movies.

Uncommon Goods Wishing Ball

Wishing Ball

For a truly sentimental gift, try this Wishing Ball from Uncommon Goods. The handblown glass is pretty small, just 4 x 3.5 inches, but it can truly pack a punch and show you care. The gift comes with 52 small sheets of paper and the couple can write down any hopes, wishes, or simply what they’re grateful for. This can be a weekly mindfulness activity to truly make couples focus on and visualize their future.
