It is a little expenisve, but I am registering for a beautiful patchwork quilt. A well-made quilt will last decades and they only get softer as they age 🙂 Would you use a few nice wine glasses, a vase, or a nice serving dish? in a beautiful classic design those things will not become outdated.

I don’t understand how a blender, toaster, etc will become outdated? They may break evenually, but I don’t think they become outdated. I feel art, vases, etc. are more likely to become outdated as styles change.

My mother still has all of the pots and pans she got at her wedding almost 40 years ago. If you register for really nice onces, they’ll outlive you. Also Le Creuset is fairly indesctructible – we pass that down in my family. Really lovely serving pieces are also a good idea (like a hand-carved salad bowl or server), etc. An excellent set of knives. Truly lovely wine glasses. Barware (nice ice bucket, wine cooler…)

If you really mean heirloom, china, crystal or silver would be good. I’m inheriting a full set of all 3 so I didn’t register for it.  Honestly some classic crystal would probably be more “keepsake” than a funky vase as your taste evolves.

I don’t mind that the blender I registered for will eventually die. The Kitchen Aid stand mixer might not though – my mothers is still trucking after decades of use!
