We already know the list of essential gifts every couple should add to their registry, and we know some surprising favorites when it comes to registry picks from millennial couples. But now we know what couples are craving across the entire country, state by state, thanks to Zola’s crackerjack research team. We compiled the data on the top wedding gift for every US state in 2018, and the results are totally fascinating.

Do you hail from the Wild Waffle West? Cuisinart’s waffle maker is hot in Alaska, New Mexico, Oklahoma and into Tennessee. Ever visited Cast Iron Ridge? Lodge’s cast iron skillet dominates in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana. Then there’s the Bluetooth Belt, a.k.a. Georgia and South Carolina, where the iLuv Audio Shower Bluetooth Speaker was gifted the most. Lastly, there’s Towel Terry-Tory, where top towel brands Parachute and Welspun compete for the coasts’ favorites.

Check out the map below detailing each state’s most popular wedding gift, and read on for an itemized, state-by-state breakdown so you can shop like a true Californian (or Floridian, or Texan, or New Yorker…).
