Turns out, I have expensive taste!! I could fill up my registry with $100 items, but I’m in need of adding some less expensive things.
What is your favorite things you registered for in the $20-$50 range? We really don’t need spatulas or the usual $10 fare. But if there’s something unique you really love, let me know! Thanks!

We registered for a extra long toaster that fits homemade bread (around $35)
A pasta pot ($25)
A belgian waffle maker (it flips like the hotel ones do – $30)
Collapsible dish rack ($50)
Dish towels! You can never have too many
Pot holders (the nice ones with the silicone)
Spices! (Sounds weird, but it was SO helpful and people loved it!)

Collapsible colander, register for the knives in a set separately maybe?, Digital leave in thermometer, a couple books on home reno & cooking, a couple board games, a few tools (plier set, level, screwdriver set from Craftsman are all under $50), roasting pan I picked out is about $50, Immersion blender, camping cooking gear

Towels? I feel like you can always use new towels. If you got everyday china/dinnerware, many of the add-on pieces are likely in that price range. Wine accesories like an aerator and a rabbit? An awesome apron and the matching kitchen towles and mitts? A cake plate/dome? A triffle dish? Ramekins? Cook books? Immersion blender?

@mrsSonthebeach: Thanks for the recs! I actually read one of your posts a few months ago that led me to register for our Portola Flatwear! 🙂 Just added some cookbooks. Thanks!
@unimeg07: What do you use your immersion blender for? I’ve thought about getting one. I registered for Bezzerwizzer and I’m gonna go look again.
@hogoboom2012: Spices are a good idea. My FI just bought a Weber grill and I got him some Weber spices and he loved them.
we have or did register for a lot of these things. I’m probably good on my list, just trying not to forget something awesome.

In that price range, the things I’m most looking forward to are the thermometers (oven and meat), the sink-mounted water filter, the french press, cutting boards, and the vacuum wine storage kit.
Also, metal baking sheets. You can never have too many of those; they wear out so easily.

Cutting boards, cheese boards and tools, board games like Scattegories!! Boards lol!

Everyday glass sets, wine glasses, and the wine glass protectors. I also got a rotating crock to store all the spatulas and whisks in and love it! It’s probably cheaper than $20, but I love our rotatory cheese grater. DH and I like parmesan cheese and really prefer that to trying to grate it normally.

Here are some of the things we put on our registry (we cook a ton): baking stone, mixer attachments, cooling racks, microplane, spatulas, grilling tools, cast iron pan, wok, amazon/costco gift cards.

@bluebelle23: I don’t actually have one yet…but it’s good for sauces & soups. We’d never use a real blender for smoothies or drinks, so it’s silly to take up all that space, but an immersion blender would be nice to make things really smooth w/o the risk of burning myself by pouring them into and out of a normal blender.

A lot of our stuff is under $50: stock pot, casserole dish, baking dishes, tablecloths, napkins, table runners, placemats, cute dish towels, serving platters, salt and pepper grinders, clock, down pillows, board games, lawn chairs ….

My favorite little things are:
1) This herb grinder used to grind fresh herbs. I can never cut them small enough by myself. $18 at Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Microplane-48006-Herb-Mill-White/dp/B003RVYSTS/ref=sr_1_25?ie=UTF8&qid=1361750075&sr=8-25&keywords=herb+grinder) but other stores have them.
2) Stackable mugs from Cost Plus World Market. Compact, they can sit on top of a counter. This is key as I am pretty short and can’t reach a lot of our glasses without jumping up on the counter or using a stepstool. About $13-18

We’re the other way around. We couldn’t come up with barely any items over $50. I’ve lived on my own for years so we really don’t need anything. Here are some of our registry items:
Waffle maker, skillet, popcorn popper, griddle, blender, garbage cans, kitchen mat, humidifier, paper towel holder, pizza cutter and stone.

Trivets, mixing bowl sets (esp the ones with rubber/silicone on the bottom to keep them in place). kitchenaid sideswipe blade and pouring shield, coasters, napkins, napkin rings, table cloths, placemats, candle holders, everyday vase, salad bowls, serving dishes from a different line to mix it up, fondue fuel, kitchen fire extinguisher, bbq tools, specialty cleaning products (ie pot cleaner or le creuset cleaner), crock pot, nice chopsticks, salt grinder, pepper grinder, wine charms, rice cooker, bag ties/chip clips, pyrex with lids, canning stuff, pressure cooker, pressure canner, bathroom accessories, extra pillowcases, bedskirt.
That should give you a few ideas!
