Register for a sous vide.  We have the one from Anova.  Google it, it seems weird but it will CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

I wish we had registered for more sheets/duvet covers. Boring, but they do wear out!

nanoinfinity:  Tools and a tool box are definitely a huge one that we put on ours.  We both love to do little projects around the house so it helps.  If you enjoy camping you could put stuff like that on there.

nanoinfinity: You sound a lot like us! We joined households, didn’t want gifts or contributions, had everything we needed, and prefer minimalism — which made it difficult to register as most guests like to shop from the registry.

You already listed many of the best suggestions. I particularly like that you plan to put gardening supplies on yours — hobby related items are always great. We similarly registered for items related to our hobbies such as various food making kits and cookbooks, canning goods, a hummingbird feeder, and a whiskey ice cube tray. 

Another item we received was a dvd about our honeymoon location. It was really cool to watch and learn about our destination. If you are going on a honeymoon, you could put items that you’ll need for your locale such as a new camera, guide books, weather appropriate attire, etc.

FH and I have an established home, so we are using our regiatry for items that we have had for a while and are wearing out. Ex- blender, towels, curtains, rugs for bathroom, pots/pans.

Our things are left over from college/grad school, so we’re registering for items that are nicer than we previously had.

We are registering for gift sometime this month and are in the same boat. We’re mainly going to upgrade, replace, or ask for new things for our list. I also keep telling him that we could get stuff for the future, for when we move into a bigger house in a couple years.

We merged our things last summer when I moved in with him (pre-engagement), so a lot of stuff was gone through in both households at that time. It would just be nice to start having some of “our” own things, rather than what was his and what was mine.

Your list is really good, and I may snag some additional ideas from that!
