lovethelacexo :  I think I saw a blog post about this on the bee recently!! January is a huge registry month (all those holiday proposals). Look into events at your local Crate&Barrel or other such store. Fiance and I are going to a private event this month to do our registry hosted by them.

One general bit of advice is to think outside of the box for stuff you and your Fiance like to do. We registered for a waterproof speaker, coolers, camping chairs, and the like because we love camping. It doesn’t have to be all plates and flatware!

I love every item that was a super stylish upgrade of stuff we had or wanted but would have chosen cheaper versions!  We got a artsy floor lamp, extended length storage ottoman, and crystal glasses that we absolutely love using.

have you condered a honeyfund? a few of my friends have done it and i think it’s a really good idea for the guests to pitch in on their honeymoon. anything extra wil also help you with the wedding expenses as well.

Fiance and I have lived together for two years, so like you, we have everything we need.  I’m not having a shower but we made a registry in case people want to give us physical gifts.  We added nicer dinner ware, flatware, and cookware.  We also registered for a lot of small appliances, like a KitchenAid stand mixer and a Ninja coffee system.  But our favorite items are on our REI registry 🙂  We want to visit a lot of National Parks so we registered for backpacking tents, sleeping bags and other camping supplies that we can fit into luggage.  Don’t limit yourself to Bed, Bath & Beyond.

I’d do an Amazon Registry and also figure out what you would like to upgrade in the kitchen AND your linens!

Sheets and towels are SOOO expensive so I would DEFINITELY register for at least 2 sheet sets to fit your mattress and maybe 4 nice bath towels/bath sheets (extra large). 

After that hubby and I registered for nice knives and nice stainless steel pans because we would never buy them ourselves and we were in dire need of an upgrade from our college pans. Also, if you need/want an area rug those get pretty expensive too, we used all of our target gift cards pooled together to get an area rug and even after pooling together some of our gift cards it was $100. 

A good food processor is a must, whether you get a NINJA system or a typical food processor it is a kitchen gadget I believe ever home kitchen should have and allows for sooo many more recipes to be made. 

Also, the bake-and-store pyrex dishes are awesome. 

Lastly, for the amazon registry add just a few “fun stuff”. We put some camping gear and also some board games (Catan, Ticket to Ride, Pandemic, etc.) the board games that are pretty dang expensive but are awesome to have for game nights. 

Seriously though, people always forget about linens and I honestly think those are more important of a thing to register for than china, etc. You can find really nice china second hand, you aren’t going to find nice linens second hand. 

Lastly, a down comforter. That was awesome to receive.

lovethelacexo :  Something to think about: most places give you a discount on thing you’ve added to your registry but weren’t purchased, so you might want to add things you’d like to have ebem if you don’t expect anyone to buy them for you.  My cousin and her husband registered for a grill and patio furniture because they were able to get 20% off any unpurchased registry items at Target, I think..

REGISTER FOR THIS NINJA SYSTEM! We registered for it and received it early for christmas and have no joke used it everyday since, especially for smoothies. The base doesn’t take up much counter space and as long as you have a place to store the accesories, it’s a piece of cake.

Tools and yard-care items if you don’t have them. We registered for a socket set, car jacks, gardening tools, etc. because we had been living together in an apartment for a while and had plates, but didn’t have enough tools to move into a house.

I was reading this and I honestly did not have anything to suggest, but then I read your response that you were thinking of an air fryer. We got one at our bridal shower, and we adore it!! My husband has perfected the art of the tater tot. I’ve made chicken cutlets in it. There are so many recipes and we love it. We use it pretty regularly for a crispy “treat” without all of the grease. Highly recommend.
