  • gift certificates for fun experiences (indoor skydiving, dinner cruise, wine tasting/dinner trip etc) that would help celebrate your new marriage as something you could do together
  • scrapbooking kit or materials
  • sewing machine (if you can sew or want to learn)
  • designer chocolates
  • matching pjs (probably more comfy than sexy)
  • fun kitchen gadgets (magic bullet, ninja blade, etc)
  • wine refrigerator or rack

Hope those are kind of “fun” and help!

Fun things we registered for and actually got:

A funny doormat with a dog on it

Baking supplies: fancy vanilla, food coloring, etc. from Williams-Sonoma

The Butter Boy corn butterer

A fancy-pants margarita/frozen drink machine (did NOT expect anyone to buy it!)

People love buying you fun stuff. And I feel like I’m way more likely to remember who gave us the “Bone Jour” doormat than a set of mixing bowls.

Hmm…we registered for a map of the world print. (Husband’s friends got it for us with a Tardis cookie jar. Awesome gift!) We registered for sleeping bags, but no one got us those.

Most of what I considered fun was kitchen stuff, though!

We registered for some really untraditional things!!

From Are Naturals (a green living store) we registered for wooden animal servers:

 

An iron “glass drier” (along with a set of the glasses shown in the pic):

 

A giraffe paper towel holder:

 

A heart coffee scoop:

 

And a driftwood leaf bowl:

 

Very excited! I really truly hope a few people buy us some things off our registries, we tried to pick a lot of things that are made sustainably/fair trade.

We registered for power tools, camping gear, and a few board games.  I’ve also seen people register for stuff with their college logo on it (camp chairs, aprons, random decor).

One of the places we registed is an online store and catalouge called Uncommon Goods. It has super fun and different items that you can actually use! Instead of a plain, boring vase, they have really fun unique ones. And rather than a regular cutting board, they have some in crazy shapes and materials. The prices are just right for young friends and family members who probably don’t have the money to spend on your china pattern, but still want to get you something. I HIGHLY recommend checkin it out!!
