embroidery hoop chalkboard
$35; Bliss in a Teacup
Similar to the hoop above, this Embroidery Hoop Chalkboard from Bliss in a Teacup lets you start the happy couple off in their marriage with a sweet love note. But it's reusable, see? When life turns a little less lovey dovey, they can use this chalkboard to remind one another to bring home the milk or take out the garbage.

his hers tea towels kitchen
About $18; Keep Calm Gallery

This set of crisp white His & Hers Tea Towels by Hayley and Lucas make a lovely wedding gift for a new (hetero) couple who spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Or, because they're so fresh and new, maybe they're a better gift for the couple who eats out a lot.

What couple doesn't need man- or woman-shaped cork boards to keep their new married lives in order? The Corky Girl-Shaped Bulletin Board ($29) and the Corky Boy-Shaped Bulletin Board ($29) are sold separately at Amazon so you can buy the two that best match the new partners in wedded bliss.

Modern first initial pillowcases are fun for the newlywed bed or if the couple now share a last name, you could buy them last initial monograms. Or heck, go hog wild and get them four: two separate first name initials and two shared last name initials. These Signature Pillowcases ($18 each) are available at Urban Outfitters.
