Drive past a church on a Saturday with your windows down and the chances are you’ll hear wedding bells pealing. Sunday mornings on social media see newsfeeds inundated with congratulatory messages and first dance photos. Yes, it’s wedding season.
3 out of 10 divorcing couples cite arguments over household chores as the reason behind the split. Therefore, we say what better gifts to give than ones to encourage wedded bliss for years to come. Appliance gifts, that make chores a breeze, are officially the way forward!
4 Slice Toaster
Gone are the days of singledom where a single serving of beans on toast would suffice. Upgrade the bride and groom to a 4 slice toaster so their bread can sit side by side, just as they’ll stay side by side for life. Who knew toast could be such a metaphor for romance?

A combination of uncomfortable shoes, hours of standing around greeting guests and an evening tearing up the dance floor will almost certainly see the betrothed duo’s feet aching by the end of the wedding day. Their gratitude when they see this thoughtful gift will know no bounds.
- Relaxing after a hard day’s work
- Relaxing after a hard night’s partying
