Offbeat Home is where I geek out over home goods, decor, and gifts. I thought I'd round up some of my favorite home goods and serve them up to you as weird and awesome ideas for your weird and awesome wedding registries. You might not need blenders and plates, but you guys totally do "need" Star Wars towels, hanging chairs, and stuff for your cat… right? (Pro tip: set up a universal registry on Amazon to immediately add these things to YOUR registry.) You and your partner may not need a new bed, but maybe your cat does? And maybe it needs to be shark-shaped. It does, doesn't it? Now you guys can cook like a Jedi with the R2D2 measuring cup set! What about the coolest hanging chair for your balcony, backyard, or hell your living room!? It's purely elementary that lit nerds in love need these Sherlock decorative pillows. Clean your kitchen countertops in fancy couple style with the Dancing Deer tea towel and the Gentlemen Bears tea towel. Or maybe you need bathroom towels that are geeky as they are romantic — like the Han and Leia hand towels. Okay, wait, maybe I lied. Maybe we all lied to ourselves, and you DO need plates — these plates. Get ready to throw epic parties as a married couple with this awesome party-inducing patio cooler! If you're going to register for appliances, why not register for the most colorful and super-space-age-y ones you can find, like all these from Kalorik. Help your guests find their way to your front door at night with this solar-powered zombie lawn lantern. Or, as one Offbeat Homie put it, when she set eyes on it: "Ah! He'd be so great, climbing out of my strawberry patch! Right next to my zombie pink flamingo!" Because who doesn't need a potted plant that your cat can poop in? And, as a customer noted, "You can easily swap out the ferns for a more appealing silk plant that suits your fancy/decor." Your house needs a dragon mailbox. Yes, I said needs! If you're looking for a new look for your marital bed, check out these daring duvet covers from Deny Designs. Two words: Frying panda. There's nothing cuter than making dinner together, than making dinner together with this frying pan. Any coffee snobs in the house? This elaborate cold drip coffee maker would make a great addition to your registry. Just look at this hedgehog table lamp, and tell me you don't want to adopt it and bring it home with you. Or maybe you're all about bringing in as much color as possible into your space, then your registry would benefit from ANY of these colorful to the point of trippy kitchen goods from French Bull. Ready to add these things to YOUR registry?
