What were some fun, non-traditional (towels, kitchenware type stuff) items that you put on your registry? Or if you didn't do that, was there something you wish you had?

  • We registered for an electric smoker, and BIL got it for us. We use it all the time.

    We also registered for some camping gear and Cards Against Humanity expansion packs.

  • Not sure how non-traditional they are, but two fun things we added were a quesadilla maker and a fondue pot.  The quesadilla maker made delicious quesadillas but broke after a few months (it was like $15), but we still pull out the fondue pot from time to time.

  • FI loves his cigars, so we registered for a really nice humidor! Not sure we'll actually get it, but I can always use it as a Christmas or birthday gift when I'm stumped!

  • Bananagrams, coolers, camping/folding chairs.

    A friend of ours had a Sears registry and registered for things like chain saws, axes, power tools, rakes, etc along with the traditional bath towels, appliances... It was awesome, and we got them a drill :)

    I started an Amazon registry and put Cards Against Humanity and all the expansions, a carpet shampooer, handheld vac, hammock, camping chairs, and a sander on there. Thanks for your suggestions.

    I put a new backpack for FW on our registry. She needs it for school, and I'm tired of looking at the ratty old one.

  • A composter. DH and I like to garden (nothing big or ambitious, just a few plants) and put a small compost bin on our registry that keeps the odors at bay during the day until we empty it in our compost pile in the yard after dinner.

  • The only "fun" thing was the ice cream maker attachment for the Kitchenaid.

    FI is a sports memorabilia collector so our basement is all Detroit sports, so we registered for a Lions bean bag chair and Pistons clock and thanks to the advice here, Lions corn hole games.

    Totally going to add a hammock though!  Great idea!
