John Lewis has revealed the Wii is now one of the top 20 most popular items to appear on couple’s wedding lists.
The Telegraph reports the Nintendo console joins other tech gifts, such as an iPod or flat-screen television, and traditional items such as crockery and cooking equipment.
John Lewis’ senior Gift List analyst Tracey Yates said: Two years ago, the top 20 products on the Gift List were exclusively traditional items from linens, kitchenware, china and glass but, in the second half of last year, the Wii made it to the Top 20.”
Similar trends can be seen at other retailers. Debenhams has stated that the most requested gifts on wedding lists are iPods and TVs, as well as cash or vouchers.
