Ever hear that phrase “opposite attract?” Sometimes its never more true than when 2 people come together as a couple and start combining their tastes. One could love traditional, the other a modernist at heart. Or one loves technology while the other prefers to stay a purist. Luckily Chad and I had similar aesthetics (yay modern!), but we’re still night and day when it comes to some things…like his obsession with coffee for example. I happen to be more of a tea girl myself, but he absolutely cannot function without a couple of cups of coffee when he wakes up!
If this sounds familiar to you, then Target’s registry can help! With practically everything under the sun to register for, you can get as practical or crazy as you want, and there’s definitely something for every taste. The best thing about registering is that there really is no right or wrong gift to ask for…so if you want some cookware, but your fiancé is itching for a sleeping bag, just go for both! By choosing gifts based on your interests, your guests will really get to know you as a couple that much better (and help you keep the peace at home!). If Chad and I were registering today, he’d probably register for the Keurig coffee maker, while I’d be sure to add the Chef’s Choice electric glass kettle for my hot & iced tea obsession.

I was having a discussion with a couple of ladies about bridal registries the other day, and it dawned on me that there are so many new options these days for wedding registries that defy “tradition”. As couples are waiting longer to get married and testing the waters by living together first, in most cases their houses are practically set up so there’s no need for additional plates, cups etc. Rather, being able to register for experiences or your honeymoon is becoming increasingly popular, and thats where Traveler’s Joy can come in. They’ve made it super easy to register for fun things like breakfast in bed, bungee jumping, island excursions, pretty much anything you can do on your honeymoon, you can register for! How nice to not have to worry about expenses while you’re enjoying some alone time with your sweetie! You can also add on items like maps, cameras, and luggage, and for higher priced items, the cost can be split up amongst guests so no one’s on the hook for the $1000 Louis Vuitton makeup case you’ve been eyeing. If you’re stumped for ideas of what to register for, you can use their Instant Registry feature, or check out other Traveler’s Joy user registries to see what they’re getting.
Now you’ve got no excuse to not sign up!

Since I’m on the topic of gifts, I’d love ANYTHING from A+R Store…sadly, no gift registry as of yet. Why don’t the best modern stores have registries? Here’s whats on my wishlist….from top: Walnut breadboard by Sagaform $40, Ceramic crinkle cups $10, Fresh herb pot $15, Oven to Table serving bowl $42.
