8 Trendy Decor Wedding Gifts & Registry Items for a Stylish Home

Gift Registry Ideas

Household hand-me-downs can be much needed gifts for newlyweds who are starting their lives together in a new home; but many North American couples have already spent many years accumulating furniture and decor. When searching for the perfect gift or registry items for modern couples-to-be who don’t need the common essentials, look instead for trendy home upgrades: furniture and decor that updates their new space.

1. Vitamix

Although it’s a coveted item for many passionate home cooks and exercise junkies, the pricetag for a Vitamix is a little too steep for most. If you don’t know, a Vitamix is the King of household blenders. It doesn’t just mix up foods - it super purees, making perfectly blended smoothies, dips and soups. $500 Costco

2. Kate Spade Dinnerware

Definitely the go-to dinnerware of the century, any new couple would swoon over a selection of Kate Spade dinnerware! With a huge selection of fine china and casual dinnerware in oh so many designs and genres from classic to colorful and fun, this is certainly a china collection worth accumulating! Shown: $95 for 4-pc The Bay


3. Stovetop Espresso Maker

Instant pod-coffee makers may be all the rage for most, but there’s a slow moving trend towards a slow living life making, giving stovetop espresso machines, and the morning ceremony they provide, a comeback. Shown: Bialetti Moka $76 Amazon

4. Metallic Flatware

Metallics in the home are still going strong in 2016, making this flatware in gold and copper tones uber chic. Shown: 20pc $220 West Elm

5. Woven Baskets

Natural fibre anything is the perfect way to spruce up decor while giving any space a more cozy, homely feel. Decorators are using these baskets as plant holders, for blankets and magazines, as front door catch alls and even on desks and counters. While you could once find woven baskets for cheap in Chinatown, the trend has certainly made them more accessible - and more expensive! Shown: Potterybarn $146 / West Elm $110

6. Leather Chair

Part 70s, part bohemian and part natural fibres in decor comebacks, a leather chair can upgrade any new space. Not too big, not too small, simple or classic, dressed in fur or wool and found at many price points, this would make a great home gift for a new, modern couple. Shown: $399 CB2

7. High Efficiency Stereo System

New sound systems amazingly combine speakers, subwoofers and big sound into small packages. While there are several systems to choose from, this The Tivoli Audio Music System BT is said to deliver “expansive stereo sound” - plus, it’s handcrafted, sure to appeal to millennial couples. $798 Bay Bloor Radio

8. Marble Side Table or Anything

Marble mixed with rose gold married two big decor trends into one. This side table is pure glam and sure to kick up the decor in any room. Also comes in a bookshelf version. $500 CB2
