I asked associate manager, Joanne Dilonardo, at Williams-Sonoma (level 4), for 10 TOP Wedding Gift ideas. Even if you don’t have a wedding coming up on your calendar, be sure to check out these fun finds!
When it comes to the more expensive items, consider chipping in with a group of friends, family members or co-workers to get a gift that will have longevity!
Gift #1: All-Clad Stainless Steel 10-Piece Set ($949.95)
This set includes two fry pans, two saucepans with lids, a sauté pan with a lid, and a stockpot with a lid. The stainless steel is designed for consistent heating, use on any kind of cooktop and for easy cleanup. Each of the pots and pans can be purchased individually as well. However, you can save 25% by getting the set.
Now for a GURU TIP for those registering: Register for both the full set and the individual components. If you receive the individual pieces, you can always exchange them for the set and have money left to spend.
Right now, a special gift comes with this set. You get two oven mitts, an All-Clad lasagna pan and a cookbook ($170 value).
Gift #2: Shun Classic 3-Piece Starter Set ($299.95)
