Wedding gift registries are extending to the size of a short novel these days. The most popular wedding gifts are undoubtedly for the kitchen. Dressing a fully functional and modern kitchen can get very expensive. Asking for friends and family to help furnish this essential part of the house almost seems to be a rite of passage for engaged couples. If spending big bucks on a wedding gift does not appeal to you, consider buying a wholesale alternative. Flatware, small appliances, kitchen gadgets are usually some of the most popular wedding gifts requested, and often times, they can be found at the best wholesale outlet stores.
Most bride and groom have a mixture of hodge-podge silverware, cheaply made by forks and knives from their college days. You might even find an occasional “souvenir” from a college dining hall. Wholesale outlet store offer dramatic discounts on flatware to suit any budget. It is common practice by retail stores to pull older styles off the shelves for new but not necessarily improved models. Choose a common brand name like Hampton Forge.
A good set of knives are a must! Just ask any Iron Chef. Ha! However, retail prices on knife sets can go for a pretty penny. As a bonus, most wholesale knife sets include other kitchen gadgets. You might be able to find wholesale sets that include serving spoons, peelers, spatulas, and measuring cups. Also look at overstock specialty knives like paring knives and cheese knives which are nice additions to any kitchen.
Have you been up at midnight, watching the “for only $19.95” infomercials? Like any good retailer, TV gadgets have overstock and fast liquidation needs. You can easily snatch up As-Seen-On-TV gadgets for cheap. Know that simply because they are sold on TV does not mean they are made of inferior quality. This also accommodates those guests who are looking for unique wedding gift ideas that are most likely not on the master registry.
The greatest savings offered in wholesale stores are small kitchen appliances. There is usually a wide selection of small appliances thanks to customer returns and factory refurbished units. Also, manufacturers like to produce the same product or similar products in different colors and configurations. This supplies wholesale outlet stores with a good source of shelf-pulls that are in perfectly functional condition. Blenders, coffee-makers, toaster ovens all by top brand names like Cuisnart. What a great opportunity! The married couple will never know that it was purchased at wholesale.
Probably the most appealing part of a wholesale kitchen wedding gift is its shelf life. Even if a coffee maker sits in the storage room for over a year, it is still fully functional. Also, know that a customer return does not make it defective. On the contrary, most returns are because it was an unneeded gift or it did not match the existing items. These types of returns will still be in their original packaging. Buying a wedding gift at a wholesale outlet store never sounded better.
