20 Kitchen Basics Every Newlywed Couple Needs

You may have spent your entire dating life eating out for every. single. meal, but trust us: the moment you tie the knot, nesting mode totally kicks in. That means saying goodbye to those nightly meet-ups at your fave restaurant and hello to home-cooked goodness in your new dining room. To make sure your kitchen is on-par with the essentials we have created a list for you:

1. A Tea Pot
Every fabulous morning starts with a nice cup of tea or coffee, so investing in a really great tea or coffee pot is definitely key. Plus, if you choose the right one they make your kitchen look so, so pretty

2. A Utensil Set
You can keep digging around in every drawer for the right spoon, or you can register for a utensil set that will make everything that much easier. Try the new Bamboo sets available at any good store

3. A Utensil Crock
Once you have those utensils, you’ll need a place to store them and when it comes to choosing a utensil crock, the prettier, the better – it will sit on your counter, after all

4. A Spoon Rest
And as long as we’re finding the perfect spot to store your utensils, let’s add in a spoon rest, too. You’ll never realize how much you needed one until you have it

5. A Coffee Pot
We probably don’t need to tell you why this is important, because, well… coffee makes the world go ’round. We’re all for registering for an amazing coffee pot, so you and your love can take time to catch up in the a.m.

6. A Canister Set
Whether you’ve been baking your heart out since forever, or you’re just getting started, a great canister set makes all of the difference. It keeps that sugar, flour, etc. handy while whipping up that banana bread AND makes a pretty statement piece, to boot

7. Measuring Cups
These might not be glamorous, but if you’ve been using a drinking cup to measure out your ingredients (been there, done that), it’s time to register for the real deal

8. Measuring Spoons
Ditto on the above, but this time with a table spoon. Try stainless steel, so you can’t go wrong

9. An Oven Mitt Set
We’re big fans of a cute oven mitt set, because they always, always come in handy and are also a super sweet addition to your kitchen. Try Silicone Oven Mitts – they come in funky colours and look great in your Kitchen

10. A Dutch Oven
From cooking up roasts to baking up your fave dessert, a dutch oven will quickly become your go-to for all things in the kitchen. Registering for one of these babies is basically a must – and you’ll love the versatility it gives you for all of those dinner parties you and your love will be hosting

11. A Vase
We obviously believe that no room in the house is complete without a beautiful arrangement of flowers, and the kitchen is certainly no exception. Try it – it’s like a little ray of sunshine every morning

12. A Cutting Board
You can’t have breakfast or brunch without a side of fresh fruit, so we’re all for finding the perfect cutting board to get you through every meal with ease – buy 2, 1 for your meat, 1 for your vegetables

13. A Knife Set
Newlywed life means giving away those mismatched cutlery item and really investing in some pieces that will last a lifetime – a titanium knife set will last forever

14. A Serving Tray
Once you slice up those yummy treats, you need a cute way to serve them, because finding an amazing serving tray is always the first step to impressing your guests

15. Kitchen Towels
It’s the little things that make a difference and having durable towels on hand will make everything that much easier in the kitchen. Bonus points if they’re absolutely stunning designs

16. A Pan Set
No one tells you just how amazing a “real” pan set can be, so we’re letting you in on the secret: scrap those mismatched ones and register for the real deal. Your kitchen life will change for the better, we promise

17. Jar Candle
Seems simple, but once you create that amazing meal, you’ll want to set the mood with a little candlelight and a sweet scent filling your abode. Which means you’ll need some candles

18. Salt Cellar + Herb Rack
It’s one of those things you didn’t know you needed until you can’t live without it, but trust us on this one: a salt cellar will streamline your cooking life in ways you didn’t think possible, and your Herb Rack is on hand for every delicious meal you create

19. Lazy Susan
We know what you’re thinking – a Lazy Susan is for your parents. But you honestly couldn’t be more wrong. Add this to your registry for a convenient way to pass the condiments at dinner, or a beautiful centerpiece in your kitchen for herbs and such

20. Salt & Pepper Shaker
It’s back to the basics with two tools you most certainly can’t do without – salt and pepper shakers. But don’t just grab a couple from the grocery store – we suggest registering for a pretty duo that will really impress your guests
