Gift registries are a convenient way of letting your guests know what you’d like to have as your wedding present. But before you set it up and send the shopping invites, make sure you think about the selection of shops and items you’d really enjoy. There’s no point in creating a registry if you just fill up the list with many items and later on regretting having put them on the list. You surely don’t want to start your newly wed-lifestyle with a bunch of things that you don’t need in your home. So here are some ideas for gifts that could help you create your wish list for the wedding gift registry.
Think about your hobbies. What do you like to do in your free time? What do you enjoy doing together with your partner? These will most likely turn out to be the best gifts!
Many times an experience is better than (more) things. If you and your partner have been thinking about going skydiving or taking a diving class, wouldn’t that be the perfect gift? Not only can you do it together with your partner, you can cherrish the beautiful memories together for ever.
If you’ve caught the travel bug then your best shot would be setting up a registry in a travel store. A new suitcase or backpack is always welcome, right? A guide book about a random place could give you ideas for your next trip as a married couple. And setting up a fundraiser for a plain ticket is even better. Imagine getting a trip around the world for two;)
Probably the classic among wedding gifts. It comes from the tradition of moving into a new home with your partner after the wedding. Moving brings costs along the way and you don’t have things of your own. Your friends and family are here to help you out with that.
Well, nowadays you might have been living together before the wedding. Or not. Either way some home appliances that you can use in your home are always welcome, aren’t they?
Make a list of all the things you’ve been wishing for but never managed to look for. Whether it’s a simple toaster or an ice cream maker, think about it, talk with your partner and write it down.
There are always a few things you would like to change in your home. And there’s always that coffee table that you don’t quite like anymore but don’t have the heart to change it because there’s nothing really wrong with it. But if you happen to stumble upon a new one among your wedding gifts, it’s the perfect time to make a few changes around the house. New married life, new furniture. If it’s something larger that you wish for, make a registry for a contribution, so several of your guests can pitch in on one item. They help you out and you get your perfect gift.
