We lost hours browsing the portals of ForMyShaadi’s ridiculously pretty presents in their gift registry -- India’s premium destination for couples and well-wishers who want to take the headache out of wedding gifts, and make room for some extra love. Get the next happy couple you meet to register at so that you can give them one or more of these beautiful, useful things:

Elvy three-tier cookie jar: Sweet starts guaranteed with a clear-glass, lace-patterned, old-school cookie jar whose tiering will remind your lovelies of childhood tiffins (and separate tea biscuits from dessert, of course).

Truefitt & Hill vouchers: A grooming for the groom, please! Send the bride’s boy to Truefitt & Hill for a classic or royal package that’ll spruce him up with a cut, shave, manicure and pedicure to match the Duke of Edinburgh’s.

Zao green lacquered salad bowls: Eats, shoots and leaves will sparkle in a summery, happy salad bowl at your cool, casual newlyweds’ table. For garnish, you get bright mixing spoons in the same colour. Don’t forget the feta.

Oberoi Hotels & Resorts gift card:Because why give them something when you can send them somewhere -- their honeymoon, to be precise? With For My Shaadi’s Oberoi tie-up, you can gift the lovebirds an experience they’ll cherish forever at Oberoi hotels and resorts.

A Holybelly experience: Weddings are stressful, but date nights shouldn’t be: a customised dinner-for-two experience with the much-loved chefs of Holybelly Delhi will ensure your couple hears sweet wedding bell(ie)s a little longer.

Noritake Carnival mugs: The future is Brighton! We love these old-school funky mugs with big hearts and Big Top aesthetics. Conversation pieces for nervous young couples, funky cuteness for peaced-out, together-at-last partners.

Elvy’s Sovereign ice bucket: Don’t send the champagne without sending along this cool-as-cucumbers bar accessory: leather-covered, ice bucket and tongs with hand-stitched seams.

Urban Ladder vouchers: For fun, funky, pretty furniture that -- best of all -- your bride and groom can pick for themselves.

Getting there: Check for details on how to register, and lots more gifts.
