Here are some off of ours. I split our registry approach into “things due for an upgrade/replacement” and “new” things, since we’ve been together/on our own for a while.

Upgrades/replacement: everyday dishes, utensils, kitchen towels, bath towels, bedding sets, indoor grill (cuisinart griddler ftw! the finish is flaking off the foreman), teflon-free nonstick cookware

New: serving platters, table linens, new shower head/curtain/rod/bathroom accessories, humidifier, air purifier, le creuset cookware, fondue pot (cliche!), soda streamer and accessories, tea pot

You could also add cookbooks, home office stuff, home accents, etc.

For some out of the box ideas, I’ve also seen things like camping gear or outdoor games (think bocce ball or corn hole) those have always been fun things for the younger crowd to go in on together. 

Those are maybe less showery, but still fun. And I LOVE the cookbook idea.

We registered for a lot of upgrade items. New bedding, towels, cookware, silverware, knives… These are the things that we need becuase I dont want to spend so much money on the nice things myself.

We also registered for fun gadgets like a waffle maker, deep fryer, silver serving pieces, and fun appetizer plates and bowls.

We registered for one of the complete sets and then some extra pots/pans, etc. I didnt really know what to choose so we just chose what we thought was best. I plan on reading through reviews and probably changing the set we registered for.

The good thing is you can always return whatever you get for something you want more!

@hopefloats:  Calphalon is good, you can’t go wrong with it.  It should last you forever, although I’d suggest getting stainless and not non-stick.  Non-stick, no matter how expensive, seems to crap out eventually.

Just get a few of the registry checklists that are on all the registry sites. Go through them in your house and see what you do/ don’t need and then check that against your registries to make sure you have all the bases covered.

@atalante:  YES to the griddler- everyone I know who has one loves it! Great advice.

I’d also add matching glasses and dinnerware. You can also add vacuums (if you need to upgrade), table linens.
