My favorite registry items

My sister just did her registry and it got me thinking about some of my favorite registry items. Some of these items we got through our registry three years ago and others we have discovered since then and wish we had added to our registry. It is always good to register some big ticket items along with some smaller items. Many people like to buy actual items for the shower and then give money or gift cards at the wedding. Make sure you check your registry after your shower and add some more things if it is getting low. There is nothing worse than going to someone’s registry and almost all of the items are taken.

Microplane Gourmet Paddle Graters

Great for zesting lemon, garlic, you name it. It fits nicely over most bowls and is easy to clean. They have many different grate types but I have found I only really need this one.

Silicone Basting Brush

I love how easily this comes apart and can be cleaned. Before this we had one of those bristle ones that just got gross over time. It is a bit pricer than some others but I definitely think it is worth the money since you won’t need to replace it like other ones.

Silicone Spoons

SurLa Table
Williams Sonoma

I LOOOOOOOVE these spoons. We also have the solid spoon. They hold up really well and can be put in the dishwasher.

Over the sink colander

Hamilton Beach Coffee Maker

Keurig Single Cup Coffee Maker

We love our Keurig Coffee Maker. I love it so much on Black Friday I heard a couple debating between the Keurig and Tassimo and I had to stop and give my opinion. They just had to know that the Keurig is far superior (and I have experience with the Tassimo so I know). 🙂

Cuisinart Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill

One Touch Can Opener

Small and simple. It fits nicely in a drawer. Plus it opens a can cleanly so there is no sharp edges.

Waring Pro Professional Cordless Wine Opener

Another one we just love. Opens a bottle of wine with ease. It pops the cork right out. Anyone can use it. It is that simple.

Epicurean Slate Cutting Boards

Oxo Good Grips 12″ Tongs with Nylon Heads

I love that these close up. When my tongs are dirty in the dishwasher I just get sad. I just saw they make a small version. I may need to get another one. They are that good!

Hotel Collection Bath Towels

These towels are so soft and they have a 35″ x 70″ size. It’s huge! I love it!


Another registry trend is to register for things like your honeymoon or your photography. You can always add Essential Sunshine to your registry by including our email address along with your registry lists. We’ll send invoices to your guests and they can purchase gift cards from us to be used towards your photography services.

I could go on and on about all of these items. We love them so much! I’d love to hear your comments on if you use any of these or if you have a favorite item that you just can’t live without.

I’ll leave you with a picture of Lexi on her favorite spot. Anyone tired of the Lexi pictures yet? 😀
