Blueprint Registry, a forward-thinking, comprehensive and personalized registry service that enables couples to register across retailers and categories, has compiled a list of their top registry items for 2016. Check out this list for registry inspiration, or to see how yours stacks up.
Cards Against Humanity ($10.00)
By now you’ve probably heard of this adult-only card game that is a staple at house parties. And we've gotta admit — we're surprised to see this non-kitchen item top the list amongst all these cooking staples, too! But modestly priced at $10, it’s a great (not to mention super cheap) wedding or engagement gift to bestow upon your game-loving friends!
Glass Nesting Bowl Set ($29.95)
A nesting bowl set is a kitchen essential for anyone who bakes or cooks (no matter how infrequent!). Conveniently stackable for simple storage, this glass set features broad rims and is both microwave and dishwasher safe.
Cast Iron Skillet ($44.99)
It's easy to see why bakers and chefs alike love a cast iron skillet — you can legit whip up everything from a meatball supers to one enormous chocolate chip cookie. It might be heavy, but this oven safe and pre-seasoned kitchen staple will earn it's weight in delicious meals.
Ramekin Set ($18.39)
Ramekins are those types of registry items you don't realize you need until you have some — and then you couldn't live without them. Bake individual portions of mac 'n' cheese, bake soufflé or just serve up a dip at a party in this mini vessels.
Glass Measuring Cups ($17.95)
You won’t last very long in the kitchen without a set of great measuring cups. Even for the best eye ballers, the easiest way to ruin a recipe is to incorrectly measure critical ingredients. So get yourself a set — STAT.
Moscow Mule Mug, Set of 4 ($34.99)
Don’t call it a comeback – but Moscow Mules are having a serious moment right now. Whether you love them yourself, or want to be prepared for those who do, a set of copper mule mugs are essential for your bar cart.
Copper Flatware - 5 piece set ($39.00)
Unless you’re, like, a caveman, it’s quite impossible to eat without proper utensils and flatware. So you're going to want to add a few sets to that ever-growing registry list.
Marble Rolling Pin with Stand ($19.95)
While rolling pins are workhorses when it comes to baking, we love the idea of registering for one that's also easy on the eyes, like a marble variety or one made out of Polish Pottery. Bonus points for getting one that has it's own stand, too.
Waffle Maker ($59.95)
It's common knowledge that you can’t have a proper brunch without waffles, but did you know that you can make SO MUCH MORE in a waffle maker than just waffles?! Grilled cheese, cinnamon buns... even brownies! Seriously, the list is endless.
Another Nesting Bowl Set ($29.95)
Yep, you're going to want to register for more than one set of nesting bowls. You've got your glass, so now opt for a set that's a striking finish or patterned — they'll be perfect for hosting dinner parties.
