With wedding season fast approaching, you’re sure to find yourself on a wedding guest list or two. A wedding is always a fun event to attend, but the thought of what to buy for the couple can be pretty daunting.
You can always go with cash or vouchers, but if you want to look like you’ve made an effort to think about what the couple might really want, a small appliance is often the way to go. Now straight away, we all tend to fall into the cliché – a toaster or a kettle – but let’s be honest here. How many people don’t already have those?
Here are seven ideas for small kitchen appliances that won’t make anyone groan:
1 Bread Maker
Store bought bread doesn’t even come close to how amazing homemade bread is. A bread maker is a fabulous gift for any couple who enjoy life’s little luxuries but don’t necessarily have hours to spend making bread the traditional way. A bread maker really takes the pain out of making your own bread.
2 Coffee Maker
I think it’s fair to say you can’t go wrong with a coffee maker. It’s the nation’s favourite drink and the smell alone will make the couple’s new house feel more like a home. This gift is both practical and a nice treat. Your friends will love you every morning when they get to enjoy their favourite barista style coffee at home!
This gift is perfect for any couple who you know are into healthy eating or who want to start trying to get healthier. A spiralizer can turn any vegetable into a spaghetti type of thing and replace unhealthy carbs with fresh vegetables. It’s fast becoming a craze, so this gift will be bang on trend!
4 Slow Cooker
A slow cooker is a perfect gift for couples who both work long hours. It means that both of your friends can come home to a cooked meal that’s ready to serve. After a long day at the office, no one wants to start cooking a meal from scratch and a slow cooker is a great way to ensure your friends have a convenient way to cook!
Another fast and convenient way to cook, a steamer is a must have for anyone who wants home cooked meals the easy way. Steamers can be used for chicken, fish, potatoes and vegetables amongst other things. Everything can be prepared and added to the steamer. Then it’s simply a matter of switching it on and voila, a home cooked meal with no fuss and little washing up!
Are you friends into the juicing craze? Do they love a good cleanse or just enjoy fresh fruit and vegetable juice? If you answered yes to either of these options, then a juicer is a great gift that they will love. You can’t go wrong with a Nutribullet!
7 Air Fryer
An air fryer is the healthier alternative to a deep fat fryer. Not only is the food it makes healthier, but it uses less energy too so it’s a win win for both you and your friends. You’ll save them money and time and they’ll save a few calories for dessert!
So there you have it! Seven ideas that will make your friends think you are a gift giving legend leaving you free to enjoy the wedding without the knot of dread in your stomach at the thought of the toaster or towel bale you’ve brought!
