You can get legit Oneida products on Amazon (if Oneida is the seller it’s legit). I think they make the best flatware– it feels great in the hand, and lasts forever! BB&B didn’t have the pattern I wanted but Amazon does.

You can also register for luggage, kitchen appliances, basically anything you need that you couldn’t find on the other sites. I don’t think there are “Amazon-specific” products, since they really sell everything. Just be careful to check who the seller is. There has been an epidemic of counterfeit products on Amazon lately. If it isn’t sold directly from Amazon, or the brand, I wouldn’t trust it.

Amazon has a browser add-on button where you can add stuff to your registry from any other site, FYI!  I added a set of dishes from Crate and Barrel and a couple of cute household items from Etsy and Uncommon Goods.

I also found it useful to look at the site Zola for sample registries, see if there was anything I liked missing from mine on Amazon, and then head back to Amazon to add it.

My friend registered for a Lumie bodyclock, which I got for her as we got one for Christmas which was AMAZING. Another great thing I got from Amazon (that’s registry appropriate) is a multi-temperature kettle, but that might be a bit of a British thing! Also Chrissy Teigen’s cookbook is by far my favourite recently if you’re after cookbook recommendations!

FWIW, I don’t think most people care as miuch about visiting the store to look at the items in person.  Most people I know prefer to buy from a registry online. That way, they don’t have to worry about gift-wrapping it, making sure they get a gift receipt, mailing it, etc.

Other items you might consider:  

  • luggage (no doubt shipping via amazon will be cheaper!)
  • a scale
  • additional cook books
  • expensive/nice coffee table books (ie, beautifully illustrated atlas)
  • travel related items like packing cubes and electrical adapters/converters
  • decorative household objects (holiday decorations?)
  • electric kettle (I have one that has different temperature settings for different kinds of tea)
  • good wine opener (ie, the rabbit)
  • vacuum or electric broom
  • croquet set (if you have a yard)
  • nice picnic basket/supplies
  • tools, power drill, etc
  • board games? (nice chess set?)

kmmq72 :  One thing that we saw a couple registered for that we wish we would have though of is board games. We struggled to come up with things for our registry (we didn’t have nearly as many items as you’ve listed), and ended up registering for some things we haven’t even used. 

A new Kuerig was the thing we’ve probably used the most (old one was on its last leg) off of our registry, though.

Why register for a bunch of stuff you don’t really need, and won’t end up using more than a couple of times? If you haven’t already needed an item in your everyday life, or wanted it for a while, you probably shouldn’t put it on your registry.

Are you going on a honeymoon? Is there anything specific you’ll need for that? 

We are going to Norway soon and while we didn’t have a registry, my Mother-In-Law got us a Go Pro style camera. After receiving it, I realized how important it was to document the trip. I’m glad we were gifted something before the trip.
