Wedding Gifts That Will Enhance Your Morning Routine
Is there anything worse than waking up on a weekday morning and having your routine feel, well, boring? As most people will agree, being an adult is hard some days, and sticking to your routine—especially when said routine has begun to feel dull—can quickly feel like a chore. Waking up and getting back to the grind is difficult enough without feeling like your morning is rushed or tiresome, leaving you drained before you even make it to work. As newlyweds, it's especially important to have a pleasant (and dare we say enjoyable) way to deal with your mornings. After all, when you're sharing your mornings with another person, it's easy to let your A.M. grumpiness project onto your partner.
Lucky for you, morning person or not, there are any number of products out there that can not only streamline your routine, but actually enhance it, too. To help reduce those newlywed squabbles and get you out of the house and through your commute with ease, we've rounded up some of our all-time favorite products that will do just that. From state of the art coffee makers and travel mugs that'll help you get your morning cup of joe with ease to no-fail alarm clocks you'll never want to snooze, we're sharing the products that help make mornings easier and more pleasant. Hate waking up before sunrise to hop in the shower? With a luxe showerhead, that morning ritual will feel more like a reward than anything else.
Ready to wake up on the right foot every day? Add these morning-enhancing gifts to your wedding registry as soon as possible; we promise they'll make every morning at least a little more enjoyable.

Drip Coffee Maker
