The tea kettle, that humble household necessity, has historically conveyed the notion of comfort. Steeping tea to be served with cookies (or "biscuits", per the English) is a time-honored symbol of hospitality. Then in 1980s America, tea kettles became status objects: Italian architect Aldo Rossi designed a sleek number for Alessi and architect Michael Graves designed his famous kettle topped by a red, chirping bird. It was the whistle heard around the world.
Today, tea kettles are must-haves on any wedding registry. Coveted styles include the retro SMEG design and the super cute kettles from Kate Spade. Even if you don't drink tea, a kettle is a must-have for boiling the water used in a French press for coffee or for hot chocolate. No hostess is prepared without one, particularly while hosting a brunch, a book club or holiday parties. We've rounded up the best tea kettles for your wedding registry from Anthropologie, Neiman Marcus, Williams-Sonoma and more. (And don't forget the Fortnum & Mason Wedding Bouquet Blend, a tea developed to commemorate the marriage of Prince Henry ("Harry") of Wales and Meghan Markle!)
From your bedroom to the garage, make sure you don't forget these registry essentials you need in your new home.

Built to complement a rustic or industrial chic living room, the Williamsburg End Table is crafted with sleek sled legs and richly... grained acacia veneers. The bands of black metal contrasting against the wooden top would tend to remind one of a wine cask, so this table could easily coordinate with a "Napa" theme. A note about wood composite or engineered wood: Often referred to as "MDF," which stands for "medium density fiberboard," this type of wood composite is made of compressed wood fibers and has several benefits, including affordability, consistency, and resistance to warping or rotting over time.
