9 Fabulous things to add to your Wedding Gift Registry from Etsy

This wedding gift registry post is especially useful if you have no idea what to add to your list, or, if you already have everything you need but still want to set one up.

Setting up your wedding gift registry is one of the more fun things to do when you’re planning your wedding.

It’s great to set one up, mainly because most of your wedding guests will have no clue what to get you, and possibly default to the usual gifts that you buy for a newlywed couple.

That’s why we turn to Etsy! The opportunity to find something original, beautiful, and unique is endless and most items are handmade – which we love! 🥰

These include (among plenty of others) wedding items, home décor items, fashion things, and gorgeous must-haves!

This is perfect for the bride who is a little clueless about what to add to her wedding registry list + the bride who already owns everything.

Let’s dive right in!

9+ Fabulous things to add to your Wedding Gift Registry from Etsy

1. Wedding registry gifts for the kitchen

If you love to entertain guests in style, then you should definitely add special dinnerware and kitchen-related items to your wedding gift list.

We love the idea of bringing signature items to the table, especially if they are handmade and unique, or personalized! Start with basic items in pure white and glass, then add these extra special pieces to complete the look.

To make it more cozy and heartwarming, serve your signature dishes in your newly added wares.

These gorgeous custom cutting boards come in a variety of styles and are available in walnut, maple, and white oak. These make a great gift to add to your wedding registry because it is a reminder of your special day and will serve up many a charcuterie for years to come!

The custom labels idea is nothing new, but what makes this wedding registry gift item so unique is that it will 1) probably inspire the gift-buying wedding guest to actually buy the wine these labels will be stuck unto, too, and 2) won’t it be super fun to sip a glass of “special wine” on each anniversary date?

These tin enamel mugs are so sweet and make a wonderful wedding gift to add to your registry. Perfect for the camping couple, or couples who love adventure and traveling.

Obviously, you can’t add hundreds of items to your wedding registry (what a shame), so make sure the items that you do add, serve a purpose.

One of the more unique and useful gift ideas to add to your registry is something that will help keep the romance alive. These 100 date night ideas are color coded and come in a cute jar.

9. Wedding registry gifts for the living room

Many couples who have been living together for some time before getting married will likely have all the necessities for the newlywed home.

If you feel the need to rather ask for monetary gifts, be sure to add some physical items on your wedding registry, too, for those wedding guests who’d rather prefer buying you a gift – items for the living room are great for this.

Lovely statement coasters is a great idea for the coffee table in the living room. Custom engraved ones are even better!

10. Special wedding registry gifts

These wedding registry gift ideas are extra special and are perfect additions to your list. The wedding guests who know you best will be more likely to grab these for your wedding day!

Kintsugi is a golden joinery art form in which broken pottery is repaired with gold. The bowl becomes more beautiful when we embrace its history, changes and journey.

Similarly, this is a beautiful tradition to bring into your marriage and can be celebrated at every point of your life together.

You will soon realize, as you pick items for your wedding registry, that it will consist mostly of things for your new home (and life) as a newlywed couple together.

With that being said, there’s no such thing as an “incorrect” wedding registry list. If you feel you want to add mostly décor items – do it!

How to set up your wedding gift registry

1. Choose your gifts by price range

You can’t really add only the highly priced, top-of-the-range kind of items to your wedding registry. Not everyone can afford it. You might get one of those items on your list if you’re lucky.

The best way to handle this is to add gifts by different price ranges: Decide on the number of gifts per price range, based on your total wedding guest count.

2. Add what you really need

It’s easy to get caught up in all the pretty things for your home / new lifestyle together. But think of the things you really need, not just the stuff that you want.

Rather add the kind of gifts that will be useful, such as a kitchen appliance or curtains for the guest bedroom. Of course, you can add some luxuries too, if you really want to.

The challenge is to figure out what it is that you really have a need for and add it to the list first.
