What you need to express with the list of items are your needs and hopes. The gifts should be practical, useful and beautiful. If you are a lucky couple having almost all the basic stuff, go for some unusual registries and alternative gifts. In case you are a fresh starter, go for the basics that will stock the closets and fill the cupboards. Here are 3 basic gift registry ideas.

1. A cookbook: both for experienced and inexperienced brides. Are you a culinary beginner? Your kitchen has to be equipped with a cookbook of a high quality having a list of simple substitutions, measurement conversion sheet, basic instructions on cooking, making sauces etc. Alternative to a cookbook are cooking classes. Yes, you can include them in your wedding registry, also. In case you are really good in cooking, go for a cookbook that will improve your skills or make you an expert at, for example, making desserts.

2. Sheets, beautiful satin or practical sturdy sheets are always welcome. Choose natural fibers and high thread count. Signing up for extra pillowcases and staying with colors you will be able to mix and match are good tips. But, if you would die for some crazy colors and designs of sheets, this is the time to ask for them. Best Home Decor items are recommended.

3. China, dinnerware, serving pieces, glassware, cookware, bake ware, cutlery, table linens. It’s good to take some time and take an inventory of what you already have before registering for wedding gifts. You will find out that you have more stuff than you would expect to. So, don’t waste potentially great gifts for duplicating items you already possess.

Remember, there is no need to be too practical about every gift. Do yourself a favor and add some beauty, too.
