Ad in partnership with The Home Depot — Where Doers Get More Done.
Building our your wedding registry can feel a bit like building out a Christmas list for Santa: exciting and overwhelming at the same time. If you’re recently engaged and at a lost for where to start, allow me to help. As a bride-to-be who’s been planning her wedding for nearly two years now, I know a thing or two about what to add to your registry.
To start, you want to fill your registry with items that you actually need, items you want but wouldn’t buy yourself and items you’ve been meaning to update. In other words, add practical pieces (in a variety of price points) to your list, that are also exciting to unwrap.
At a loss for where to start? Check out the interactive shopping video below, where I walk you through my top four registry essentials from The Home Depot that belong on any newly-engaged couple’s list.

Cuisinart Espresso Defined Black Espresso Machine
Wedding planning can mean lots of late nights and early mornings, so make sure you’re prepped with plenty of caffeine. Instead of making multiple trips to a coffee shop, add a high-quality coffee maker to your registry. This Cuisinart model can whip up cafe-level espresso, cappuccino and latte drinks — and it even comes with a milk steamer. If you and your partner take your coffee differently, this machine even allows you to adjust your drink’s brew strength, temperature and more.
Stanley Home Tool Kit
Okay, a tool kit isn’t necessary a glamorous gift to receive, but it is an important one — especially if you’ve recently purchased a home or are planning to buy one soon. The Stanley Kit has 65-pieces, including a tape measurer, levels, blades, knives and wrecking and prying bars. The tools are conveniently housed in a sturdy tool box that can be easily stored away when not in use. At under $60, it might just be one of the most affordable and useful items you receive as newlyweds.
Henckels Statement 14-Piece Self-Sharpening Knife Block Set
Even if you and your fiance aren’t the entertaining types, you’ll still find plenty of uses for the Henckels knife set. The knives are made of high-quality, built-to-last steel and the self-sharpening block ensures there’s never a dull blade in sight. The 14-piece set includes a bread knife, paring knife, steak knife, chef knife and more. The Home Depot shoppers have even dubbed these as “the best knives ever.”
Stone Lain 32-Piece Modern Stoneware Dinnerware Set
There’s a good chance you’re still eating off the hand-me-down dishes you purchased in college. Use your registry as an opportunity to upgrade your dinnerware to something chic and classic. Stone Lain’s 32-piece dinnerware set includes enough dinner plates, salad plates, bowls and mugs to serve eight. The set is microwave safe, made of durable stone and comes in three cool matte finishes.
Blendtec Classic 570 Blender
Like I said above, a wedding is the perfect time to ask for those higher-end items you probably wouldn’t buy yourself — like a souped-up blender. This all-in-one blender can fit 90 ounces of ingredients, so you can make soups, smoothies, dips and more by the bulk. It has a touchpad control center, three fast speed settings, a built-in timer, an auto shut-off feature and it’s dishwasher safe. In other words: This best-seller really does it all.
