Soon-to-be married couples traditionally register for items, such as china, silverware and flatware. However, a variety of stores have gift registries, enabling engaged couples to register for a wide variety of items.
Registering items at more than one store allows a couple to think of items they need outside of the traditional formal dining set. For example, couples can register for new towels and bedding. Items, such as clear plastic storage bins, can help a couple organize their things. Other popular registry items include blenders, espresso machines and food processors. Non-traditional registry gifts include setting up donation funds to help pay for a honeymoon or for a down payment on a new home. Couples should register for items at all price ranges to accommodate their guests' budget levels.
