We also went the upgrade option since we’ve been together for 5 years. We have hand-me-downs of almost everything we own (from parents), so we basically registered for everything a new couple would register for and picked it out together.

We went Corelle ware instead of fine china (that stuff never breaks; I grew up with it). We also put all new kitchen gadgets on our list (Oxo good grips), serving ware, glass ware, etc. We went with Sears for in-person stuff and Amazon for online purchasing. The one “strange” thing we put on our list is a king sized mattress, since we both want a king bed. I doubt anyone will get it for us, but if someone gets us the comforter set we chose (king), we’ll probably splurge and get a mattress.

We’ll be moving states after we marry, so we didn’t put any other furniture on on the list, but I definitely would have if we were staying in the state we are getting married in. We didn’t want to look to gift-grabby, so we didn’t put electronics or anything unexpected on either registry – just household items. If we get enough cash gifts, we may just buy ourselves whatever is leftover at the end. 🙂

I registered for one of those mandolins that cuts veggies, etc, and a pair of kitchen scissors (the kind that cut meat).  Both Awesome.

We had lived together for two years, so here are some of the upgrade options I’m really glad we went for:

  • Frappe maker (my personal fave lol)
  • Panini maker
  • Beautiful new comforter
  • New cookie sheets (Ours were gross- seriously.)
  • GPS (Ours was wayyy outdated.)

We registered for a watermelon corer (spelled wrong). It looks like a giant apple cutter!  Also a frappe maker and hot air popcorn popper. I REALLY want the popcorn popper!

I’ve seen several registries listing Camping Equipment – tents, screenhouse, folding tables, gas camp (Coleman) stove, camping cookware, lanterns, etc… I thought this was the neatest idea (unless of course you don’t like to camp).

Other things were for outdoor work around the house – things like rakes, shovels, hand-held small garden tools, hoses, plant stands, garden carts, even garden seating – I know this sounds weird, but do you know how expensive a GOOD pointed & flat shovel are?  $30+ Each!  Plus, in addition, they had outdoor furnishings/outdoor living items like pretty lanterns, gas grills, etc. 

When I shop for wedding gifts, I love to pick up the odd things.  LOL
