Mixing bowls, cutting boards, an over-the-sink colander, placemats, a grill grid (to cook vegetables on our gas grill), cookie sheets, cooling racks, a recipe card box, towels, bathmats, a set of chopsticks, meat thermometer, citrus juicer, microplane zester, drawer organizers, utensil crocks.  The barware I put on my registry (at Crate & Barrel) was under $3/glass – stemless wine glasses, martini glasses, etc. There are tons of inexpensive items you can add!

Lots of kitchen knick knacks are cheap.  Measuring cups, measuring spoons, pot holders, ladle, collander, chopsticks, placemats, cutting boards, bakeware, can opener.

Bathroom stuff can be cheap too: toothbrush holders, etc.

I’m big on the baking supplies! So cookie sheets, baking pans (square, 9×13, round, muffin pans, fluted pans, bunt cake pans) and also the utensils that go with that…spatulas, mixing bowls, cooling racks, flour sifter, measuring cups, measuring spoons…etc. 

We also got a really cute basket from my mom of all corn on the cobb stuff. Like a butter boy (check these out, so cute!) corn cobb trays, holders (like the stabby things), a corn brush, etc. 

Bathroom accessories are also good…like a shower curtain, tissue box, tooth brush holder, Q-Tip holder, soap holder, etc.

A set of outdoor glasses. We already had outdoor plates, but those could be nice, inexpensive registry items, too.

Pasta cutter and pasta dryer (we make our own pasta).

picture frames

serving bowls

kitchen utensils: including spatulas, measuring cups & spoons, serving spoons

linen napkins (haven’t gotten any of these, yet, and I’m hoping I still might).

Define cheap. Is that like $5 cheap or like $50 cheap. In my area/circle, $50 is relatively cheap. For example, we just got a gift from a colleague who’s not even invited and she is gifting us $50 of gifts from our registry. FWIW, I didn’t do BBB but I did do C&B for a lot of our cheaper items.

That said, the cheaper things on our registry were:

– Wine glasses ($6 each). People don’t have to buy the full quantity you registered for and you can do red and white for greater selection.

– Pretty/fancy or double-walled drinking glasses: ($10 each). See above.

– Champagne flutes ($12 each). See above.

– Serving platters/bowls: ($15-25 each). Get an assortment and multiple quantities.

– Large picture frames, statement piece sized ($40 each)

– Rabbit wine opener ($45)

– Fancy serving set (giant fork/spoon): ($40 each set)

– BBQ grill accessories/pans ($15-25)

I agree with PP go to Crate & Barrel.  They have tons of glassware and serviceware that is more cost effective than BBB.  We got beautiful clear glass chesse serving plates there for $10!!  The same thing at Macy’s would of been close to a hundred.
