If you have all of the basics in your home but have been dreaming of adding a statement piece of furniture to your love nest, consider providing a link to the specific piece. Your guests want to give you a gift you will love, and if it’s a piece of furniture you would love to have, it’s a win/win.

Working on a fixer upper of your own? Then you know that all of those renovations are expensive. So, as part of your wedding registry, you can ask guests to contribute to part of the renovations or even toward a down payment on your first home. If you love a good practical gift, this is a great option.
