Items to register for at a home center

Compiled from discussions on

Couples who find china and silver a mismatch for their lifestyle--or who would like to include items which may appeal more to a male--may consider registering at a home and garden center. The following list of items was taken from a thread in on items "essential for new home owners." While some couples may first live in an apartment or may have purchased a home together before their marriage, many will find this list a good starting point for general household items if they are just starting out. (A basket filled with a number of the smaller items makes a great "couples shower" gift.) Of course, there is little of romantic value on this list, but, from a practical standpoint, it's easy to find items which fit a range of budgets. Adapt and modify as needed.
