Essentials needed for all new weds

Nine years back when I started my life as a new wed, my mom and mom in law stayed with me for a few days to help me set up my house and kitchen. But even before marriage my mom started collecting a lot of things that will be needed for me. Though this might not be the full set or an excess list for a new kitchen, still it will be helpful for all.
