The One Item Couples Regret Not Putting On Their Gift Registry

People will happily buy you champagne, stationary or items of non-perishable food, but what they won't get you is the most practical gift of all.

According to online website Zola, newlyweds always regret not popping luggage on their gift registries. After all, you're about to end the most magical ceremony of your life and hopefully traverse continents to your honeymoon destination. Who doesn't need luggage for that?

Other important items one needs to live an adult life include furniture, of which one-fifth of people don't put on their gift registry, or a cash fund for their travel plans.

Often the more practical items get left by the wayside for something more extravagant, but in truth it's the practicalities you've got to live off.

The good people over at Sweethomes suggest adding some of these items to your list:

  1. A sturdy laundry basket.
  2. Bath towels.
  3. A four sided box grater for all that cheese you'll be eating.
  4. Slow cooker.
  5. Hand blender.
  6. Steak knife set.
  7. Coffeemaker.
  8. Bed linen.

Look, they're not the most sparkly of gifts, but they'll surely impress your newlyweds.
