Maybe your best friend or a close family member is getting married and you want to get something extra special for the newlyweds. Or maybe you’ve decided to split a big-ticket item with a few others. If you’re looking for ideas, we’ve got you covered. From top-tier kitchen essentials to luxurious bedding, check out the best splurge-worthy wedding gifts for brides and grooms that’ll make ’em feel like a million bucks.

A cordless vacuum they’ll use every day… 

The Cyclone V10 Absolute may just give their house the deepest clean it’s ever had. Customers say that compared to their other vacuums, this one picks up way more dirt and debris. It's got 60 minutes of runtime and three power modes to tackle any mess. It also comes with eight different add-ons, like a crevice tool for hard-to-reach spaces and a docking station for easy charging. The gift of a sparkling home, comin’ right up. ($599.99, Dyson)

An experience for the newlyweds always planning their next vacay… 

With Tinggly, you can give the gift of over 350 unique experiences in more than 100 countries around the world. All you have to do is figure out which package the new couple would like best — like the “Luxury European Getaway” or “3 Days in 100 Capitals.” After that, they’ll be in control, and can choose where they want to go and when. Did someone say second honeymoon? ($129+, Tinggly)

A cookware set that’ll cover all the kitchen bases… 

This five-piece collection with comes with a large frypan, small frypan, saucepan with pour spout, and large pot — all stainless steel — along with a cast-iron Dutch oven (which comes in seven different color choices). The stainless steel options all have rose gold accents, and share lids and nest for space-saving. Customers say the set is easy to clean and love the pan but note that it has some weight to it. Time to get cookin’. ($495, Great Jones)

A gadget perfect for outdoor parties or weekend cravings… 

This gas-powered pizza oven makes a 12-inch pizza in 60 seconds. At just 20 pounds, it’s also compact enough to fit even in a small outdoor space. It comes with a cordierite stone baking board plus a gas regulator and hose to connect to their propane tank. (Psst....throw in Ooni’s ‘Cooking with Fire’ cookbook for some added inspiration.) Yum. ($399, Ooni)

Buy it


A wine subscription so they’ll always have a bottle they love on hand…  

Choose a gift card that’ll provide them with a one-, two-, or three-month subscription — or longer. They’ll be able to set up a palate profile once they redeem it. And see what experts recommend, with the flexibility to choose their own bottles (up to four a month). Everything will get shipped directly to their door. Wine-down Wednesday? More like wine down any day. ($29.95+, Winc)

A bundle that’ll make their skincare routines feel like spa time…

This one comes with the full facial package: a cleanser, toner, and serum designed to remove impurities, fortify, and hydrate. Oh, and of course, all the products have that classic Aesop smell we love — aka blends of parsley seed, lavender stem, and licorice root will fill the air. Because their bathroom deserves a lil’ luxury. ($185, Neiman Marcus)

Buy it


A kitchen essential that’s a classic for a reason…

Ah, the KitchenAid mixer. If you haven’t heard, this appliance can tackle dough, icing, and cream like no other. And, of course, it’s a showstopper in the kitchen. It comes in 22 colors, and includes a coated flat beater, coated dough hook, six-wire whip, and one-piece pouring shield. It’s also got 15 optional attachments. The 10-speed slide adjuster lets them beat with precision. And did we mention it can hold up to 5 quarts of whatever it is they’re cooking up? Yum. ($399+, Amazon)

Buy it


And a fun add-on for pasta lovers… 

One of our favorite KitchenAid attachments is this pasta maker attachment. It’s powered by the mixer and attaches right at the head. It’s got six different pasta-shape options, so they can make bucatini one day and macaroni the next. There’s also a built-in wire cutter that makes control over the length beyond easy. And if they’ve already got a KitchenAid mixer at home, this is the perfect alternative to a pasta maker that’ll bulk up their counter space. Andiamo. ($199, Amazon)

The softest sheets they’ll keep forever… 

They’re light. They’re luxurious. They’re cashmere. And they’re probably going to be the newlyweds' favorite wedding gift. The set comes with one cashmere sheet bundle, one comforter, two pillows, and a complimentary laundry detergent. They’ll love sinking into the heathered cashmere, which has a diagonal weave and is brushed for extra softness. Time to hit that snooze button. ($734.06, Brooklinen)

Buy it


A weighted blanket that’ll ensure a good night’s sleep…

Because no one loves tossing and turning. Evenly distributed weight while they snooze can help produce a deeper sleep, plus more serotonin and less cortisol. Aka more relaxing vibes and less stress. And this one is made from hand-knit cotton (not tiny artificial beads typically found in weighted blankets), so it feels soft and breathable. Sweet dreams to the newlyweds. ($269+, Bearaby)

Buy it


A gadget that’s the next best thing to having an in-house massage therapist… 

Whether they’re looking to relieve post-workout soreness or just some everyday tension and aches, we guarantee they’ll get a ton of use out of this Theragun massager. It delivers deep muscle treatment in a tiny package and can be used daily. And bonus: The device is whisper-quiet, so they won’t have to worry about waking up a sleeping partner (or baby) whenever they use it. Sweet relief. ($399, Theragun)

Buy it


A smart thermostat so they’ll never have to fight about turning down the heat…

This thermostat learns as they use it and programs itself to the seasons. It’ll help save a ton of energy and is compatible with 95% of heating and cooling systems. Which means less time setting up for them. It also turns itself off when they’re away, and comes in five different metal finishes. Ultimate comfort = a dial away. ($189, Amazon)
