Bees, we’re having a good problem where our registries are being cleaned out and we still have 2 weeks until our destination wedding and 4 weeks until our second reception. Seriously, I will add a few things every couple of days and the next time I look, they’ve been purchased.
I could really use any of your suggestions for unusual items that we may not have thought of to put on the registry! We are currently registered at Macy’s and Crate & Barrel. We may need to add a third store but we can’t do an online retailer as our crowd prefers to go out and shop in person. Thanks!!

I read a post awhile ago where someone mentioned registering for a towel warmer stand…. I told my Fiance about it and he was like “We HAVE to register for that!” We registered for one at BB&B, but maybe Macy’s has one as well? That’s the only unusual thing I can think of on ours 🙂

Oooo, thank you! I’m going to check these items out! Last night I added an air mattress which sounds crazy but I think we’ll def get use out of it when we have company visit. I’m open to ANYTHING at this point!!

You can never go wrong with an assortment of decorative serving bowls and platters. Vases? Ice cream maker? Extra sheets? What a fun perdicament to be in 🙂

Oh! And my favorite frivolous item on our Macys Registry are Villeroy & Boch Espresso/Cappucinno mugs and dessert plates from the Wave collection. Kinda expensive but soooo cool!!!
P.S. I love THIS list of suggestions from Real Simple.

We use air mattresses allll the time when people stay over! That’s a good idea!
We also registered for a new shower head, electric wine opener, and clothing steamer… those are borderline unusual I suppose. 🙂

@Gerbera: We registered for the Rowenta 1400 Watt Compact Steamer
You can use it for furniture too, which is a plus, and it’s compact. I’ve never used it before, so I have no idea if it works well or not… but I guess we’ll find out if we get it!

If you are open to opening another registry, we registered at Target for quite a few of our unusual items: a flip video camera, board games, camping gear, electronic games, SD cards. Some other unsusual items we added: a clothes steamer, a gaming tower (to organize our Wii games/system), a roomba vaccum, luggage. Good luck!

Kitchen Aid Ice Cream maker – if you have a stand mixer
Cookie Baller – great got one for Christmas
Shower heads – had them on mine and got them.
Thirsty Stone Coasters — They really work.
Fancy trash can — like a simple human one
Really nice robes – we loved the ones our honeymoon hotel had.
If you like the outdoors open a registry at REI.

May I suggest starting a registry at Bed, Bath & Beyond? I was skeptical about it at first myself, but they have a lot of little things that you can’t register for at other places but you’ll still need (how about a steam cleaner for your floor? Oh wait someone already mentioned that :D) and they have a lot of brick & mortar stores as well as an online shop.
Let’s see…my registry ideas:
Luggage (also, carry on bags)
a really cool looking molcajete
