BurlapnLace:  While I had a lot of stuff in my place already, I was definitely due for some upgrades and replacements.

  • microwave
  • toaster oven
  • clothing iron
  • comforter
  • towels
  • frying pans
  • pots
  • coffee maker

I did not register for fine china because I will never use it.

BurlapnLace:  Luggage is a must!!! I also agree with californiabride2013. We replaced a lot of the stuff we already had with nicer things. I would also add to her list sheets and silverware.

We registered at Bed Bath & Beyond. After our wedding they did a registry closeout and we were able to return/exchange things, and also received 20% off everything we bought. I still have a $25 gift card left over!

BurlapnLace:  I cook a lot, and even though we already live together, our stuff is tired and worn out. We registered for the following:


nice classic white dishes (so that they can be both casual and dressy!) – I don’t think I’ll ever use fine china, like the poster above

variety of serving trays and bowls, both white and colorful (I stuck to a red theme)

nonstick pots, pans, and skillets

garlic press

slow cooker

potato masher

really nice chef’s knife, and two paring knives

Good knives, food processor, blender, juicer, kcup/nespresso coffee machines – those were the best gifts we received and I’m so glad we registered for them.  I would definitely put down luggage if you plan on travelling a lot, or to just register for a nice carry-on.

Get some good sheets!  We received 3 sets of beautiful sheets which is perfect because you should have at least 3 sets of sheets on rotation for your main bed if you want them to last.  Washing a set of sheets every single week can really wear them down.

We bought a new bed right after the wedding so it’s so nice to have all new bedding with it!

Kitchen Aid stand mixer!!! 🙂 I’m so excited to finally use mine! I cheated and saw it was bought on our Macys registry..barware, nice wedding photo frames for your pretty wedding pictures 🙂 Neatfreak has awesome organizational items which I love and are useful, toaster oven, waffle maker, carpet shampooer , nice vacuum if you need to upgrade because you will ALWAYS use that. Maybe an upgraded pots & pans set and glass food storage sets ? Good luck! 🙂

Oh yes… I forgot – we put pillows on our list too. Those memory foam ones. We are hoping those get picked up by someone!!

Also, the KitchenAid mixer has always been #1 on my list, and I’m pretty sure my parents bought that a long time ago from a sale and I’ll get that from them. Eitehr way, I still registered for it just in case.
