Frugal Foodie's Best Wedding Registry Items for the Kitchen

kitchen toolsJune may be the popular month for weddings, but early spring is a busy time for wedding planning. Some 16% of proposals occur on Christmas or New Year’s, according to and another 10% on Valentine’s Day.

A major part of the planning process is setting up a gift registry. True, getting married isn’t about the presents — but this is a time when they’re likely to stack up.

The average wedding consists of 136 guests (according to The Wedding Report), and if you multiply that by the typical gift spending of $75 to $150 apiece, depending on the person’s budget and how well they know you, a newly married couple might receive over $10, 000 in wedding gifts.

So, when planning your registry, it’s smart to think about what you need.

Not only is this one of your only shots at asking for — and receiving — kitchen investments like stainless steel cookware or a top-of-the-line chef’s knife, but there are also plenty of bridal deals and discounts that come along with the registry game.

Manufacturers offer freebies just for putting certain gear on a registry, regardless of whether anyone gets it for you, and others offer incentives when people purchase certain gifts.

At Bed, Bath & Beyond, for example, just registering for $99.99 of Henckels flatware gets you a wood flatware storage box. Asking for, and actually receiving, $100 in Cuisinart cutlery comes with a four-piece ceramic knife set.

Plus, most registries offer some discounts after the wedding on any registry remnants that weren’t purchased, helping you get a better price on items you need.

So, what’s worth asking for? We talked to chefs and other foodies about goods that should be on your list.

Back in the day

When those ladies were, as you put it, very active gardeners, they probably learned a great deal about their favorite plants and they haven't forgotten it. Their frustration isn't "I can't garden any more" but "I can't grow my favorites any more".
Expecting someone who used to grow, say, rare Chilean blue crocuses to get excited over radishes or lettuce seedlings is...well, it's unrealistic. If your ladies are still compos mentis, then why don't you ask each of them what she would like to grow again? You know, some might be perfectly happy with nothing more than a chance to read nursery and seed catalogs and reminisce about days gone by, without actually growing anything
