The fun of gifting newly married couples is that most are still in the process of accumulating lifelong possessions they forgot to put on their wedding registry. You get to be that thoughtful friend who gets them a decent blender, the perfect throw blanket, or that fancy set of glassware. Here are a few gift ideas for your favorite newlyweds.

Down Pillows

High-quality pillows are a splurge not many people make. Give your friends the gift of a great night’s sleep with these goose-down pillow inserts.

They provide gentle support for the head and neck, and you don’t have to worry about goose feathers poking through—these are double-lined with thick cotton and polyester layers.

A Gallery Wall Kit

Gallery walls are a classic way to showcase photos in virtually any style of home décor. This kit comes with nine, 12- x 12-inch frames, and a template to help your recipient create a professional layout.

The frames are easy to hang on any wall, so your friends can show off photos of their travels, wedding, and family.

Ninja Blender

For your favorite couple, this blender is one of the top-rated models on the market. It holds 72 ounces, so they can make smoothies together or purée a soup for dinner.

It features six blades that can crush ice with ease or make ultra-smooth creations. A high-quality blender is a staple everyone should have.

Couple Conversation Starters

They say the secret to a happy marriage is to never stop dating. These conversation cards will help them keep the conversation going.

Your friends will have fun answering thought-provoking questions like, “What is something you’ve tried but will never try again?”

These are also easy to take on road trips or flights.

An Amazon Echo Dot

This is a fun gift for almost anyone. The Echo Dot connects to phones, music streaming accounts, and other smart devices. Your friends can then tell it to play their favorite song, to call one of their parents, or add items to their grocery list.

The Complete Cooking for Two Cookbook

Adjusting from cooking for yourself or a group of roommates can be a challenge. This cookbook has over 600 recipes that create the perfect portion sizes for two. It also includes helpful information on how to shop for a smaller household without creating excess waste, and the best kitchen tools for couples.

A Modern Drinking Glass Set

If the couple you’re shopping for drinks out of mismatched plastic cups, get them this fancy glass set. The modern design will impress even the stingiest of mothers-in-law. Plus, the quality ensures they’ll last for years. Each set comes with six pint-sized glasses and six tumblers.

A Rice Cooker

If your friends don’t yet own a rice cooker, it’s time they got one. Gone are the days of dealing with foamy rice water boiling over on the stove. Many people don’t think they need one of these until they experience how much easier their lives are with one.

This one cooks up to eight cups at a time, and even has different settings for white and brown rice.

Pizza Stone

Takeout is great, but nothing beats a homemade pizza night. This pizza stone is designed for the oven and will make a perfect crispy crust.

It might even inspire your friends to take a trip to Italy to learn how the pros make pies. Well, that’s what you can tell them, anyway, to make this gift even more exciting.

A Knit Throw Blanket

This blanket features a classic design that will suit any home’s décor. It’s a thinner material than most fuzzy blankets, making it great for those days when you’d roast under thick Sherpa. It also measures 50 x 60 inches, so your favorite couple can both fit under it with ease.
