Asking for Electronics As Wedding Gifts

The wedding registry is a wonderful thing. You can ask for exactly what you want without being pushy or expecting too much from any one person. People won’t buy duplicates, and people know your tastes for future gifts. Win-win. Remember to select things at several different price points.

Some of your guests may want to give you larger gifts, your parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles, best friends. What kind of electronics are traditionally included on wedding registries?

The basic toaster or toaster oven is a good start. Who doesn’t like toast? Consider a toaster oven. It’s more versatile than a toaster, as you can grill food in it, and reheat things. There is such a fun range of toasters out there these days—ones that burn pictures into the toast, omes that make multiple pieces of toast at a time, you name it, it’s probably out there.

If you like to cook, this is a good time to ask for some of the higher-priced items, like a stand mixer. A good stand mixer with multiple beaters is essential if you plan to do a lot of baking. Promise to make cookies for anyone who gets you one!

Other good things to ask for are microwaves, dishwashers, and vacuum cleaners. They may not be romantic or exciting, but they are essential for modern life.
