Shopping is fun! In fact, registering for gifts is no different, as newly engaged couples choose gifts and home furnishings to help start a new life together. Couples are advised to make their list well before entering the store and registering, and once they do they should make their list long enough so that guests have plenty of options to choose from. But what kind of gifts are to be expected? What makes up a traditional bridal registry list?

The Usual Stuff
In deciding what goes on your list, as a general rule, china, bedding and small appliances usually make up the main categories. China dinnerware can be casual china or fine china. Casual china usually comes in four-piece place settings: salad plate, soup or cereal bowl, a mug and a dinner plate. Fine china may be five-piece including an extra plate for bread and butter. Additional cookware including water and wine glasses might be put on a typical list. Appliances could be something luxurious like a television or useful in the kitchen, such as a toaster or coffeemaker.

However, some couples that have been married before or have lived together for some time may prefer other types of gifts besides the usual kitchenware. Some bridal registries might include gifts pertaining to the rest of the house or items more suited to personal hobbies

Unique Stores For Gift Registries
A couple interested in hiking might register for gifts at the REI store for camping equipment. Someone interested in remodeling a home may register at The Home Depot. Stores that sell sports gear, outdoor furniture, and camera and computer equipment are other considerations. (Most department stores have a bridal registry system) Art lovers might ask guests to chip in on a painting or sculpture, while others might put a request down for cold hard cash, perhaps in hopes of saving up money for a down payment.

The gift wish list is made in the form of a spreadsheet with a basic format. The desired gift is listed along with the suggested and purchased quantities. While some store registry lists don't have prices, most online services provided an exact price quote for every item on the gift list.

As you can see, the options on a gift list can be as varied as the couple's own personal needs and wishes. Always choose more gifts than you plan on getting, that way there are plenty of options to choose from and your guests feel appreciated.
