Make a list

Jot down the items you really need—before you hit the store. It's easy to get dazzled by tempting store displays. Use our handy checklist to be sure you don’t forget anything essential.

Determine your style
How would you define your style? Are you a traditionalist or more of a bohemian, hippie gal? Do you surround yourself with romantic, frilly décor or is your home filled with simple, clean shapes and monochromatic colors? Knowing your personal style helps you determine where to register and what items to include in your registry.

Easy access
Choose a mix of national and local retailers to better accommodate your guests.

The fine print
Check the store's shipping and return policies, and make sure they apply to your registry—and suit your needs.

Manage your registry
As items get snapped up, add more so that all of your guests will have a selection to choose from when they go to purchase your gift.

Size up your space
If you know you'll have to store items, be realistic about how much space you have in your house or apartment.

Consider your options
These days the sky’s the limit when it comes to registering. You can go traditional and register for china, flatware and other household essentials or you can opt for a registry that reflects you and your partner's style. Some choices:

Register for a cause

Go natural sells organic-cotton sheets and woven-seagrass coffee tables, while is a great resource for recycled-glass dinnerware and soapstone pizza pans.

Plan a dream vacation

Get a sports high
Adventurous types can register at for a large assortment of camping and sports gear including bikes, snowboards and canoes.

Stock up

Drink and be merry
