Wedding planning is tough, but nothing compares to building your registry. It can be intimidating to plan out every item that you’ll need for your new home with your new spouse, but it ultimately comes down to choosing the gifts you want to receive from your loved ones. And, who doesn’t like to receive gifts, right?

Whether you’re starting from scratch, or you’ve been living together for awhile, you’ll want to make sure that you register for items that you’ll get the most use out of. Here are 10 must-have items that every couple should have on their registry:

kitchen knife set

Top Chef Classic 9-Piece Knife Block Set ($80)

 

1. A Great Knife Set 

 

A high-quality knife block will save your sanity down the road, says Chantelle MacKay-Elliott of AC Events and Weddings.


 

pink and silver standing mixer

SMEG 50s Retro Style Five Quart Stand Mixer ($459.95)

 

2. Standing Mixer

 

A standing mixer is one of those kitchen items which many people aren't going to splurge on for themselves. But, this handy gadget can do more than mix; many come with attachments that allow you to make homemade pasta, spiralize and more. And they come in an array of cute colors!

 

white and gold matching dish set

Vera Wang 5 Piece Bone China Dinnerware Place Setting ($139)

 

3. Matching Dishes

 

You don't have to go crazy registering for fine china that you might only use once or twice a year, but MacKay-Elliott says a nice solid set of matching dishes is a great investment. 

orange pot

Le Creuset Signature 5 1/2 Quart Round Enamel Cast Iron French/Dutch Oven ($329.99)

 

4. Cast Iron Cookware

 

You can't eat out every night, so register for some cast iron cookware that you are sure to use for years to come. "Expensive, heavy, bulky, but so so well worth it," says MacKay-Elliott.

 

large bed with pink comforter and pillows

Peri Home Check Smocked Comforter & Sham Set ($149.99)

 

5. Luxury Bedding

 

Getting a good night's sleep is super important, so register for some super comfy sheets, pillowcases and a comforter. 

Wood Fired Pellet Grill

Wood Fired Pellet Grill With Flame Broiler ($396)

 

6. An Outdoor Grill

 

You'll use it to entertain during the summer, and some brave souls will even use it to cook dinner in the colder months, too!

Bath Towel

Nautica Belle Haven Bath Towel ($49.99)

 

7. Matching Towels 

 

"A couple of matching bath towels, hand towels, and face towels will go a long way to spruce up a bathroom’s overall appearance," says MacKay-Elliott.

Vacuum Cleaner

Dyson Ball Animal 2 Upright Vacuum Cleaner ($399.99)

 

8. A New Vacuum

 

It might not be exciting, but it's one of those household items that you will get a lot of use from. You can find one with the various attachments, special filters (that can reduce allergens in your home) or even opt for one that will move around your house on its own!

pink matching luggage set

CALPAK Ambeur 2-Piece Spinner Luggage Set ($285.00) 

 

9. Durable (& Stylish!) Luggage 

 

A matching luggage set is something you will use for years to come. And who knows? May be it will even inspire you to travel more!

 

Demoiselle Canvas Art

Renwil Demoiselle Canvas Art ($240)

 

10. Artwork

 

You'll need some pretty photos and artwork to hang around your home. Register for a few pieces--guests can always go in on a gift together if anything you pick is on the pricey side.
