Like you, I registered for all household items. My registry had expensive things like a nice knife set, pots and pans set, to cheaper things like wooden spoons.

Depending on what kind of stores you register at, some things to consider besides household itmes: lawn & garden stuff, camping equipment, board games, luggage.

I just did a quick scan of my BB&B registry and my most expensive item is my KitchenAid at $299. My least expensive is a spoon rest at $6.99, and there’s a lot in between! Our point of view was it doesn’t hurt to have it on the wish list. People can decide to give us whatever they want (if anything), but we shouldn’t hold back on the ideas we give them. You never know! And I’ve heard from my married friends that sometimes you are totally surprised by who decides to splurge on a big gift. 🙂

We registered for everything from a $600 set of pots and pans to $2 dish towels…and both have already been marked as purchased, so I’m really glad we had a wide price range.

We mostly have household items and traditional registry stuff on ours, but we did register for a few pieces of furniture from C&B–just some small stuff like coffee/end tables and bookshelves.

Definitely make sure you have a good range of gifts!  I tried to keep mine at the lower end of the price scale, but I ended up having people tell me to put nicer things on there, or that I shouldve gone with more expensive things.  I went up to a $1000 espresso maker, just for fun.  I think as long as you have enough things rom different price ranges, no one will be offended.
