Whenever I talk to Zola couples going through the registry process, I find that they have some preconceived notions of what makes a registry gift…registry-appropriate. They’re usually picturing something in the middle of the sexy-to-boring spectrum, like a crystal decanter or a bone china salad plate. As a wedding registry expert, I’m here to tell the world: Register for what you really need! And if what you need is a bunch of boring-but-comfy towels and extra trash bins, go forth and be proud.
From trash bins and ironing boards to compost kits and bathroom accessories, these are some of my personal favorite gifts that may not be the most attractive…but oooh, are they useful.
