If you haven’t found anything from our under $50 edition or under $100 edition, the following list of fail-safe wedding gifts, organized by price, includes carry-on suitcases they’ve always wanted, the Scandinavian pepper mills they never knew they needed, and enough tableware to last through their golden anniversary — some of which has been picked by newlyweds with fantastic taste. And this isn’t just a resource for wedding guests. If you’re a bride- or groom-to-be looking for inspiration for your Zola or Amazon registry, you may just find everything you need to register for right here.

Salt and pepper shakers to pass down to future generations.

Sturdy enough to withstand years of weekend getaways.
