Brainstorming wedding registry ideas with your partner is one of the most—if not the most—enjoyable parts of the wedding planning process. And, unlike other aspects of wedding planning, you can do it right from your couch!
With so many gifts to choose from, it can be difficult to decide which gifts to add. To make this process as easy as possible, we’ve compiled a guide with 130 registry must-haves for 2020, broken down by price range and each room of your house.
Jump right into our gift ideas (with spending guidelines) or continue reading about what you should know before setting one up.

You should start building your registry sooner rather than later. If you change your mind on a gift, you can always virtually exchange it before it ships. Also, remember that your registry is for you and your partner, not someone else. Register gifts that you actually want, and don’t be afraid to ask for cash funds (that honeymoon isn’t going to pay for itself!). Check out our top 10 dos and don’ts of creating your wedding registry.
Why You Need a Wedding Registry
A wedding registry is a collection of curated gifts from which wedding guests can shop. Why are they necessary? That’s simple. They make the shopping experience easier and more efficient for wedding guests. They also ensure that you receive gifts that you actually want.
Gone are the days of registries existing only in brick and mortar stores. Online wedding registries simplify the process enormously (consider perks like controlled shipping, easy gift exchanges, “group gifting,” post-wedding discounts, and more).
Check out our guide to all of the registry basics you need to know.
Giving a gift is about so much more than the price tag. With that said, these gifts are on the high end of the spectrum and are typically reserved for immediate family members, close friends, and members of the wedding party. Depending on your wedding guests, it might be wise to limit the number of gifts in this range. From a high-end espresso machine to a GoPro action camera, our guide has you covered.
Ditch the $5 espresso at your local coffee shop every day and make it yourself instead. Adjust your grind size and dose and become a barista in no time.
