28 Unique Gifts To Put On Your Wedding Registry

Feigning excitement over getting a dozen cookie sheets is more exhausting than planning a wedding, so we've taken care of the registry for you. Consider adding things like the Nintendo Switch, a ClassPass subscription, a custom papercut portrait, or a creme brûlée kit, because having a registry may be a tradition, but traditional products don't have to be on your registry.

Amazon has a wedding registry section which allows you to add items from *any* website, giving your guests one easy place to see everything you're looking for.

But what to add? Check out some of our favorite (and unique!) ideas below.

1. A custom digital print or paper cutout that'll forever show what characters you two are when you're together.

etsy.com, etsy.com

It'll be a fun way to remember your engagement days and be a slightly less vain way to cover your entire home in pictures of yourselves.

Get the framed digital illustration from Henry James Paper Goods on Etsy for $110 and the detailed paper cutout from HeyyKristenPaper on Etsy for $200.

2. A honeymoon fund, because you both know new experiences together can be far more valuable than replacing your worn-out oven mitt.

Whether you're saving up for a week in Wales or breakfast in Bali, donations to your honeymoon can be an easy way for your wedding guests to give you a donation within their budget while helping you travel within yours.

3. A coupla cacti or planter set to give your new life together a little more... life.

5. A set of KitchenAid attachments, like a food grinder and a spiralizer that'll let you increase the tools in your shared kitchen without taking up any valuable counter space.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I just got this meat grinder and... it's love. I ran cubed, semi-frozen chuck roast through it twice, first with the coarse plate and next with the fine plate, and my burgers came out awesome. No fillers, no pink slime, and it only took a few minutes. I'll never buy a burger patty again, and I'm thinking about all of the other things I can grind as I type this. Bon appetit!" —TheOtherOne

Promising review: "This is the best spiralizer ever. Hands down. There are cheaper options out there, but you definitely pay for what you get. This is one of those instances where holding out for quality is well rewarded. You'll have a serious appliance that'll last for years. The parts are solid and stainless steel, no faux-plating of plastic here. It's incredibly sturdy and well-made and the blades are nice and sharp. The parts all lock in place really solidly at the major attachment points and there are hinges that use actual pressure to hold the parts solidly down. I'm extremely impressed with this from a utilitarian view as well as an engineering one." —Julia and Erik

Get the grinder on Amazon for $39 and the spiralizer for $79.99.

6. A printer, because you won't think you need one until after you realize the show you have planned for your anniversary requires printed tickets (and believe me, that'll happen more than once).

amazon.com

Promising review: "This thing is incredible. It's so easy to setup — you don't need anything other than internet connection. I even printed pictures from my iPhone! It works great and comes with ink. I've printed full color photos that look amazing. Buy it." —Julie

Get it from Amazon for $64.94.

7. A Game of Thrones box set, because you both want to watch it but HBO does not want you to download it.

8. A sleek space heater so you can stay toasty even though your S.O. prefers the thermostat be set to "arctic."

amazon.com

Promising review: "This little heater puts out so much more heat than I was expecting. I have it in my bedroom and it keeps it nice and toasty! It has a temperature gauge so if the room gets to the temperature on the dial, it will stop blowing heat. I love the sleek look of the heater, it compliments my room nicely with its modern look, which is very important to me. The cool touch shell is a big plus since the heater sits on top of my dresser. My husband had suspicions about this when I ordered it because of the small size but even he said he is impressed with the power of it. It works so much better than our last space heater. The fan has the perfect amount of white noise for when I go to sleep, it’s nice, not too loud. If I could give more than five stars, I would. Definitely worth the price!" —Leanne S.

Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

9. A cupcake decorating kit to make date nights even more sweet after you say, "I do."

amazon.com

Promising review: "This set is much better than expected. I'm thrilled with the quality of the contents in such an adorable box. I ordered two sets, one as a gift and one for myself. The metal icing tips are nice and weighty, with smooth edges. The disposable bags are a slightly heavier plastic than another well known brand I've used. The price of this set is very good considering the high quality of the contents. I'm more than satisfied with my purchase and very happy that I bought the second one for my daughter. I've used the word 'quality' a good bit in my review but, in my humble opinion, many items that are sold in today's market places are sorely lacking this attribute. So thanks for the quality product." —GA Girl

Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

14. A set of luggage for wherever the next adventure in your relationship takes you.

amazon.com

This set of three fits snuggly inside of each other to save storage space.

They are designed with straps and netting inside to keep clothing neat and are resist wear and tear so you can use them forever, wherever.

Promising review: "Very happy with the quality and price of this set. We purchased it for a trip to Europe and it stood up to the airport handling and cobblestone streets extremely well. They were also very light weight so we were able to pack everything we needed and still stay under the weight limits of the airlines. I highly recommend this product!" —Sandy

18. A coffee table book on the hidden wonders of the world that'll make you wonder why they haven't always been on your bucket list (or at least on your bookshelf).

Workman Publishing

Promising review: "The world is still filled with interesting, exotic, and improbable places. In the twenty-first century, when you can wash down your KFC chicken with a Starbucks vente frappucino in Beijing, it is refreshing to re-discover the awe and mystery of travel. This is a perfect book for a two minute break whenever your spirit needs boosting. Whether you find Jeremy Bentham's mummified corpse at University College London; the Beer Bottle Temple in Sisaket, Thailand; or the Canadian Potato Museum in D'Leary, PEI, you can return to your drab, dreary existence with the assurance that the world is 'not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose.' Buy this book! Revel in the places that you've seen! Revel in the places that you'd like to see! You won't be disappointed." —rebogamy

Get it from Amazon for $22.57, Barnes & Noble for $23.75, or from a local bookseller through IndieBound here.
