I don’t know what you own so I can’t say what you need, where you live or what shops you like… usually registeries have basics like towels, sheets, flatware, pots, pans, ect… Usually kitchen and bath things. There are countless lists if you use google, that can guide you best

We addded upgrades to our registry. Some new nice chefs knives, new dish towels, pillows, new sheets for the bed, new kettle etc etc. We also added some nice decor items from Pottery Barn that were more ‘wants’ than ‘needs’. A good mix of practical and maybe a little more luxe is good. 

For big ticket items, people sometimes band together and purchase them. Just make sure you have enough items at various prices.

We registered for a lot of Le Creuset cookware in various colors and that’s what I’m most excited about. Seemingly my guests agree because out of the gifts that we’ve received so far almost all of them have been Le Creuset, even though there are lots of other options on there! I wouldn’t consider it unique, but they definitely have special items that you should check out!

Magzz:  If you like wine, stemless wine glasses from Riedel (dishwasher safe, and they make less expensive wine taste better). Whatever you do, don’t register for wine glasses with any kind of lip as it destroys the taste of wine. 

Kyocera ceramic knives. Kitchen Aid mixer. Small and large Cuisinarts. Cast iron pans of varying sizes. Soft taco shell warmer for the oven. 

Keep in mind that if you items that end up not working with your new house (e.g. towel color), you can always exchange later. The return policies for registries are really generous.

Having a few practical items is a good idea, as you will truly need them. Le Creuset cookware is a great option, glassware, vacuum cleaner, etc. I know they sound boring, but now is the time to plan ahead so you don’t have to worry about the necessities.

I was also going to say Le Creuset 

Or copper cookware if it’s not too overpriced where you are 

I like practical things which can also be passed down

DH and I had just merged our households 4 months before we got engaged, so we bascially looked at things we wanted to upgrade/replace from the items that were left. Some of these were from our college days and definitely needed to be updated.

We registered at Target, Bed, Bath and Beyond, and JCPenney. These included:

  • flatware (feel some out, as you want ones that won’t hurt your finger cutting into things)
  • drinking glasses
  • kitchen utensils (slotted spoons, other spoons, handheld can opener, peelers, turners, cookie scoops, ladles, etc)
  • small kitchen appliances (crock pot, smaller food prcessor, handheld mixer, mandoline)
  • Pots and Pans (We LOVE our Calphalon Easy System products we got)
  • Keurig (that was mainly for me, but I love it)
  • Bath Towels
  • A couple different sheet sets
  • Comforter
  • Some wall decor (shelves, picture frames, mirror accents, etc)
  • Hosting items (serving dishes, serving spoons, cake/pie server)

We were told by a good friend of DH’s family that they loved that we registered for the Calphalon pots, as they were a great brand and would last forever. They also gifted us a Wusthof knife, which has been great.

Just make sure you keep all receipts, if guests actually provide them, or you know where they came from if no receipts. As other PPs have said, most places have great return/exchange policies for wedding gifts.
