Tech and Gadget Wedding Gifts
Entertaining, cooking and home maintenance must haves for your wedding registry
If you’re one of those couples who “already has everything” or can’t fit anything else into their New York apartment, then building a wedding registry for a dozen place settings and a 10-piece All-Clad set may not be the best idea. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t create a wedding registry at all. These gadget wedding gift ideas may be better suited to both your lifestyle and your home.
