Why Would You Want to Buy Expensive Wedding Gifts?

First, let’s address the pink elephant in the room: who on earth would say, “hey, help me find the most expensive present possible!” and actually mean it?

Well, let me tell you a secret: sometimes when you’re really broke, an expensive gift is the best idea ever.

See, your $20 alone may not be able to the gift you really want to give, but put it with $20 from 20 other people and voila, you can afford something amazing!

As someone who has been in the “$20 is still more than I can afford” boat, I can’t gush enough about the benefits of a group gift.

Of course, group gifts are the only reason to go big or go home. Maybe you’re the mother (or father/grandparent/favorite aunt) of one half of the couple.

Perhaps you just came into a nice inheritance and want to spread the wealth?

As long as you respect the wishes of the couple (if they ask for gifts under $20 from everyone, don’t buy them a $1,000 present, for example), what you buy is really up to you.

That said, I am a big fan of sticking to the registry, since couples make them for a reason.

So, if you do decide to go big, make sure it’s something they actually need or want.

10 Expensive Wedding Gifts for Couples (Review)

These gifts are items that all couples (LGBT included, of course) would love. Some are meaningful, some are practical, some are just plain cool.

1. De’Longhi Dinamica Automatic Coffee & Espresso Machine

delonghi coffee machine

As a coffee-obsessed girl, I can honestly tell you that I would do back flips across the lawn over this baby (and I have a bad back, so that would be something!).

It is my dream machine (and a major upgrade from my current generic model), the be-all, end-all of coffee-making monsters.

With just one gorgeous machine, your favorite couple can make hot coffee, iced coffee, cappuccino, espresso, lattes…I could go on (believe me, I could) but you get the point.

De’Longhi Dinamica ECAM35025SB TrueBrew Over Ice™ Fully Automatic Coffee and Espresso Machine, with Premium Adjustable Frother
  • The first and only fully automatic coffee machine with De’Longhi TrueBrew Over Ice Coffee technology.
  • The True Brew Process Delivers Smooth, Full-Bodied Iced Coffee: Dinamica with De’Longhi TrueBrew Over Ice feature is the first and only Fully Automatic Coffee and Espresso Machine with iced coffee recipe. By brewing at a lower temperature, pre-infusing & infusing the coffee and offering the ability to customize to extra strong, De’Longhi TrueBrew Over Ice brews smooth, full-bodied coffee over ice that is never watered down.
  • Heat-up time in less than 40 seconds: With Italian 15 bar high performance pump and a brew unit that takes only 40 seconds to heat up, you can have coffee shop quality coffee beverages with the push of a button.
  • Brew The Freshest Coffee: With bean to cup brewing system and a breakthrough built-in steel burr grinder, you can expect the freshest cup of coffee, every time, unlike competitor machines, Dinamica does not leave grounds in the brew unit.
  • The Simplest Machine To Clean: With a removable brew unit and dishwasher-safe drip tray, this machine takes half the time and cost to clean compared vs. competitor models and without the use of chemicals.

2. Le Creuset Signature Flame 9-Piece Set

Le Creuset Signature Flame 9-Piece Set

Every couple needs a really spectacular set of pots and pans, even if they don’t do a whole lot of cooking.

Hey, no one can live on takeout every single night of the week, right? Well, maybe they can, but with a cooking set as gorgeous as this one they won’t want to!

The vivid colors on the outside make it a beautiful addition to any kitchen, while the enameled cast iron on the inside let’s the cook like world-class chefs!

It also comes in a beautiful blue color, but I like the orange because it goes with just about any kitchen palette. Orange is totally the new black, right?

Le Creuset 9-piece Signature Cast Iron Cookware Set (Flame)
  • Set Includes: 1.75-quart Saucepan with Lid, 2.75-quart Oval Dutch Oven with Lid, 3.5-quart Braiser with Lid, 5.5-quart Round Dutch Oven with Lid & 10.25-inch Iron Handle Skillet

  • Enhanced handles are 45% larger, distributes the weight evenly and easier to grip when wearing oven mitts
  • Improved lids with built-in lid stabilizer seals in flavor and fits securely; stainless steel knobs are oven safe at any temperature; Made in France with a lifetime warranty

3. Sony 4K Ultra HD Smart TV

Sony 4K Ultra HD Smart TV

For the couple who loves snuggling up together binging on the latest Netflix hits or streaming their favorite Marvel movies, a Smart TV is a fantastic gift!

While the average LED TV isn’t nearly as pricey at it used to be, Smart TVs with 4K Ultra HD are still pretty far out of reach for many newlyweds.

I love this one because it’s big, beautiful and compatible with Alexa! Grab it in sizes all the way up to 85″ (just make sure their living room is big enough for it).

4. A One-of-a-Kind Piece of Art

A One-of-a-Kind Piece of Art

Did you know that Amazon Handmade has a huge selection of original pieces by unique artists?

I am in love with the abstract infinity symbol pictured above. I think it’s such a meaningful and perfect gift, since love is infinite.

If that one doesn’t fit the couple’s tastes, though, you can find pieces for every style here.

5. Silver Serving Platter

Silver Serving Platter

Life may not always be served on a silver platter, but at least breakfast can be with this gorgeous tray!

Something like this will not only last throughout the couple’s life, but also makes a beautiful heirloom to pass down through generations.

In fact, I have my grandparents’ silver that they received when they were married way back in 1950, and I’ll pass it down to my son when he’s older.

Hopefully, he’ll pass it on to my own grandchildren (which he’ll have many, many years from now because he’s only 14 right now!).

Silver Plated Giftware 12.5" Tray
  • Elegant Victorian style
  • High quality silver plate on solid copper base for durability and smooth finish
  • Beautiful embossed center
  • Footed tray with pierced gallery border and handle openings
  • Nicely gift boxed

6. Love Wins Same Sex Ketubah Expensive Wedding Gift for LGBT Couples

Love Wins Same Sex Ketubah Expensive Wedding Gift for LGBT Couples

This beautiful handmade love wins “marriage contract” comes in a few different colors & styles, although I love the neutral colors of this one.

The artist created it in celebration of the Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriages, and I think she did a stunning job.

It’s a truly unique and meaningful gift for a lesbian couple.

While it’s technically a Jewish custom, I think we can all agree that the Ketubah is a beautiful tradition for all unions.

7. Silver Hammered Candle Sticks

Silver Hammered Candle Sticks

You said you wanted expensive wedding gifts, right?

Well, these beautiful candle sticks definitely fit the bill!

While it may seem absurd to spend over a grand on candle sticks, these will last a lifetime and then some.

8. Real Silk Sheets

Real Silk Sheets

While we’re on the topic of things every couple deserves to have but can rarely afford to buy themselves, let’s talk silk sheets!

They’re not only incredibly romantic (something they’ll appreciate on their wedding night), they’re also insanely comfortable.

These sets come in a dozen fantastic colors ranging from neutral white to brilliant blue.

LilySilk 4Pcs Real Silk Sheets Flat Sheet Fitted Sheet Oxford Pillowcases Set 19 Momme Soft Cool Silk Ivory Cal.King

9. Smart Crock-Pot

Smart Crock-Pot

Back to something a little more practical, a Smart Crock-Pot is a modern version of a traditional wedding gift.

Busy couples can toss ingredients into the pot before work, then adjust everything from time to temperature right from their phones on the go.

The roomy pot holds up to 6 quarts, so it’s fantastic for couples who love to host gatherings.

Crock-Pot 6-Quart WeMo-Enabled Smart Slow Cooker, Stainless Steel
  • Crock-Pot and Belkin, the innovator of WeMo, bring you a state-of-the-art slow cooker that's designed to provide remote access to your home appliances

  • This appliance does not need to be connected to Wi-Fi in order to be used. Wi-Fi connection is necessary only when controlling appliance remotely
  • Free WeMo app available for Apple (iOS 7 and higher) and Android (4.0 and higher) devices

10. High-value Gift Card

High-value gift card

Sure, it may not sound like the most original or meaningful gift, but bear with me.

A high-value gift card is one of the most thoughtful gifts for a new couple with limited funds, especially if they’ve never lived away from their parents.

Setting up a new home isn’t cheap, and unless their guest list numbers in the thousands, they’ll never get everything they need at their wedding.

In fact, even if their guest list rivals the population of Rhode Island, they’ll soon discover that choosing ten different types of spatulas wasn’t the best use of their registry.

The key here is to make it a really high-value card. Go in with as many friends as possible and surprise them with a massive $1k+ gift card.

Trust me, they’ll think it’s just as meaningful as that silver serving platter!

Amazon.com $1000 Gift Card in a Gift Box Reveal (Classic Black Card Design)
