Apartment, townhouse, condo, cottage, or manse—no matter its size or scope, the place you’ll live together as a married couple is, above all else, a home. Keep this in mind when you register for your wedding, by selecting items you’ll love, for all the spaces you’ll occupy in the home you share. You can start with these top essentials for each happy place!
For many couples, this space is the focus of the gift registry— and with good reason…actually lots of reasons. First off, the kitchen is where couples, and often their friends, family and guests, spend a whole bunch of time, especially in those first months and years of entertaining as a married couple. Sure, there’s the dining room and living room, but when there’s a party, and there’s cooking going on, everyone tends to gather in the kitchen. So it’s nice to have a well-stocked, good-looking one. Plus, there are just so many kitchen items to choose from, whether you’re a gourmet chef, an avid baker, or an “I-can-barely-boil-an-egg” amateur with a willingness to learn.
High-quality pots and pans
Fine kitchen knives
Coffee- or espresso- maker
The most intimate spaces in the newlywed home often are the most overlooked on to-be-wed registries. Don’t stumble into this common registry pitfall! While you may need to replace textile items more frequently than, say, cast-iron cookware or fine bone china, you can still register for your bedroom and bathroom with an eye toward luxury and durability. Instead of gadgets and trendy pieces, focus your registry scanner on high-quality bedroom and bathroom staples (with, perhaps, a techie treat just for fun!), and make private time— each individually, or together—your favorite time of the day.
High-quality sheet set
Designer duvet cover
Matching end tables or ottoman
Plush cotton towels
Fluffy bath mat
Soap or lotion dispenser
Bluetooth shower speaker
LAWN & GARDEN
Whether you’ve got acres of land, a small but well-tended garden, or simply a sweet town home patio, you’re likely to spend Houston’s fine-weather months (brief as they may be) enjoying the fresh air, and entertaining friends outdoors. Don’t forget to make al-fresco elements a part of your registry list! Get your guy on board, and turn your attention to grilling, chilling and savoring the sunshine, with gifts designed for outdoor fun.
Pool or hot tub towels
Big Green Egg grill
Grill tools / apron
Whether they’re connected in an open-floor-plan layout, or separate from one another, these two spaces generally constitute the heart of your home—the place where you relax, unwind, receive guests, entertain, eat, drink and celebrate. How you design and furnish your home’s living and dining spaces will depend on your taste and style preferences: Do you want to sink back and put your feet up without worrying about delicate doo-dads? Do you love the look of a formal dinner table, laid out with perfect place settings and flickering tapers all aglow? Do you crave a cool lounge space where people can flow from table to sofa to bar, nibbling and sipping while the hum of conversation never stops? Think about the atmosphere you want to create, then dress it up with these living and dining-room essentials, which make down-time a good time, no matter your personal style.
