It's not materialism it's a tradition whereby peoples families and friends actively want to give the couple useful gifts to help start their life together.

As they want to do that anyway, this list idea just helps them get something they know will be actually useful. It's not about the couple trying to sponge as much out of their guests as possible.

I kind of understand what you're saying but I think you are taking the most cynical possible view of this and missing the practical benefits for the guests.
