These are the registry truths we hold self-evident: No one needs a registry and you don’t need a registry full of physical objects. But for those of us who DO want to do a wedding registry, you might be stumped for ideas about what to add. Never fear! There’s no need to go into a store and pick up a digital scanner… we gotchoo.
Today, I’m going to look at 10 offbeat and useful things to add to your registry. Some of them are just straight-up weird (rainbow unicorn mugs, anyone?), some of them are weirdly useful, and some of them are both!
(Pro tip: set up a universal registry on Amazon to immediately add these things to YOUR registry.)
OFFBEAT: Matching “Hello is it me you’re cooking for?” aprons
Nobody says it like Lionel Ritchie, and a matched set of these aprons will ensure that you’re cracking each other up every time you wander into the kitchen.
WEIRDLY USEFUL: Poler 2-person tent
What’s a more useful and more romantic gift than a two-person tent perfect for your trips this summer? Loving the Poler tents!
WEIRD: Newlywed Nerf Guns
I guess you could say a pair of Nerf guns are weirdly useful, because you need an effective way to get out some of that newlywed stress. Expressing emotions through Nerf battles is healthy, and healthy is useful! But mostly we’re just going to say they’re wonderfully weird.
USEFUL: Candy-colored mixer
Yes, the KitchenAid mixer is the quintessential useful registry item… but who says you have to go for a standard color? I like this bright orange version of the classic.
WEIRD: Enormous LEGO set
What’s the best answer to “how’s married life?” Why of course it’s, “We made great progress on our 996-piece enormous LEGO castle set you gave us.”
USEFUL: Deep sea discovery shower curtain
OFFBEAT: Skull sugar spoons
Imagine waking up together, making your coffee together, and then sitting down together to stir sugar into your morning beverages with these perfect skull sugar spoons. ‘Til death do us part, baby!
USEFUL: Brightly colored dinnerware
French Bull specializes in SUPER BRIGHT OMG COLORFUL tablesettings, and these plates would go great with your bright orange Kitchenaid Mixer.
OFFBEAT & USEFUL: Floating bluetooth speaker
You can listen to music… AND IT FLOATS. That’s really all you need to know about that.
