Some people believe that electronic gadgets such as mobile phones and tablets are not acceptable presents to give to a married couple because they don’t last very long. Fashions are perpetually changing and as a consequence such items may well be discarded in one, two or maybe three years at best. The fact is that the world we live in has fundamentally altered meaning that, unlike our parents and grandparents before us, there’s a chance that many of the wedding presents we receive will become obsolete very quickly.

If you can get over this idea though, electronic gadgets can make wonderful additions to your gift list. Indeed, the main criteria for including something on your registry is that you either want or need it, so if it will be a well-used feature of your new home together, why not ask for a games console or E-book reader? By asking for cameras, kitchen appliances, home entertainment systems, or electronic gadgets, you understand that they will need replacing at some point but that you will almost enjoy them while they are the most popular gadget on the market.

It is crucial that your gift list is well balanced. While some of your guests will be eager to buy you the latest high-tech equipment, other relatives won’t feel comfortable purchasing goods that become so quickly outdated. Ensure you list more traditional gifts (cookware, dinnerware, towels) alongside electronic gadgets so your loved ones can make up their own minds about what sort of present they would like to buy you.
