    The ideal wedding gift is a quality kitchen applilance (taking the gift registsry list into consideration, so they don’t end up with more than one item.)

    In my thoughts, there is no ‘ideal’ wedding gift. It varies with the couple, circumstances, and tastes. The Smeg collection is lovely.

    I think the perfect wedding gift is a set of luggage. Most would never think to purchase it, so usually there wouldn’t be another set gifted. It is also something people don’t like to have to buy themselves.

    From your list of Smeg wedding gifts, I think I would choose the 50s style Cream Saucepan as a wedding present – because this would get so much use – and the couple would always think of me whenever they used it! @cathyerdle
