Best for Comfort: 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. Plus, the company allows for a 60-day trial, so the couple can try it out and return if it's not quite right.

Reviewers consistently rave about the Parachute Robe’s quality, remarking that it feels like a high-end hotel robe for much less money. Between the perfect fit and the luxurious feel, this is a robe they'll never want to take off.

"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

Best for a Tidy Home: 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 while you’re away at work. The Roomba 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
