10+ Wedding Gifts for Any Kind of Couple
No gift receipt necessary.
by : Aman Dosanj- Jun 1st, 2023
Finding the perfect wedding present can be quite a chore, especially if the couple doesn’t have a gift registry. With wedding season upon us, here’s our top pick of items that stretch beyond another clichéd kitchen appliance.
FOR THE COOKING ENTHUSIASTS: Karu 12 Multi-Fuel Pizza Oven, Ooni
The buzziest outdoor kitchen gadget on the market is Ooni‘s multi-fuel pizza oven. With its slick design, a stone that nicely retains heat, and the ability to burn on gas, wood or charcoal, moonlighting as a pizzaiolo just became real.
FOR THE COOKING ENTHUSIASTS: Dutch Oven, Milo by Kana
While it’s true not all enamelled cast iron Dutch Ovens are equal, the Milo range by California-based direct-to-consumer-brand Kana can stand up to Le Creuset without the hefty price tag. With a lifetime guarantee, these timeless, swoon-worthy pots use 40 percent recycled enamel and come in all the best colours (we’re partial to the turmeric-stained one).
FOR THE HOMEBODIES: Starter Bundle, Vitruvi
Get cozy with this beautifully crafted stone diffuser from Vancouver-based Vitruvi. Bundled with four dreamy 100 percent essential oil scents, the warm glow is another cute design touch.
FOR THE HOMEBODIES: Book Subscription, Raven Reads
Raven Reads is an Indigenous and woman-owned business in Kamloops, British Columbia, aimed at building a better world one Indigenous story at a time. Delivered straight to your door, each subscription box includes a book written by an Indigenous author, two to three gifts from Indigenous entrepreneurs across North America, an insert teaching about Indigenous cultures globally, and a personal letter from either the author or box curator.
Price: from $93
FOR THE LOCAL-LOVING ART BUFFS: Art, Whirl & Whittle
Mumbai-born, Ottawa-based Pooja Pawaskar is the über-talented artist behind Whirl & Whittle. Primarily focusing on woodturning—a tradition passed down from her grandfather in India—her collections find beauty in the natural world. Drawing inspiration from the Japanese ethos of Kintsugi, every Liv ikebana-style vase is unique. For more of a statement piece, the Yayoi rocking sculpture is stunning.
Price: from $461
FOR THE ONES WHO LOVE ENTERTAINING: 24-Piece Flatware Set, Kline
Canadian knife and cookware brand Kline stands for high-quality goods, but who knew cutlery could be this sexy? With six knives, forks, and spoons (both big and teaspoon), the ultra-sleek shiny gold set is scratch-resistant and won’t oxidize over time. Best of all, its fancy feel suits any day of the week—company or no company.
FOR THE ONES WHO LOVE ENTERTAINING: Waterproof Outdoor Speaker, Bang & Olufsen
From backyard BBQs and bathtub soaks to adventuring in the wild, this rugged B&O Bluetooth speaker lets you connect two devices at once. But don’t forget to customize the sound settings using the app for maximum listening pleasure (it made a huge difference).
FOR THE ONES WHO LOVE ENTERTAINING: 3-Tier Serving Tray, Molly Baz
Bestselling cookbook author and recipe developer Molly Baz (along with her designer hubby Ben Willett) dreamed up a playful and unfussy kitchenware collection exclusively for Crate and Barrel. With Baz’s signature quirks and bold pops of colour, this newly-dropped 3-tier serving tray screams a lifetime of seafood towers. That said, it can easily pull triple duty with crudités, desserts, or whatever else tickles your fancy.
FOR THOSE WHO WANDER CURIOUSLY: Carry-On Suitcase, Monos
Designed in Canada with the eco-conscious traveller in mind, a Monos suitcase isn’t just a suitcase. Effortlessly cool and guaranteed for a lifetime of journeys, the Vancouver-based luggage company is climate neutral certified (which means they achieved net zero carbon emissions), a proud member of 1% for the Planet and their customer happiness department is honestly lovely to deal with!
