Starting out life together as a newlywed couple is an exciting time. But most of us are young and have just embarked on a new career. Some of us have just graduated and have fallen in love with our college sweetheart. Still others have endured the test of time away at college and are now ready to walk the rest of life’s pathway with our high school sweetheart. We are setting up a house for the first time, and we want nice things. That is where the tradition of bridal showers and bridal registry come into play.

For generations, bridal registries at top department stores have helped couples like us collect beautiful and functional household items to sweeten the beginning of a happy home. Friends and family members can see exactly the items we need. With a bridal registry, there is no need to worry about duplicate gifts or receiving something we just don’t need or want. And with the concept of group giving, we can dream big without asking people to spend more than they are comfortable with. We know that some of our family members can get together to contribute toward pricier gifts.

Best Buy is a fantastic place to buy household items, so it is only logical that it’s also great for a bridal registry. Here are our top five picks. We know this will make gift giving easier for our friends and family members.

1. Vitamix-Professional Series 200, 11-speed Blender

With the Vitamix professional blender, we will have a commercial grade countertop blender with 11 speeds to make healthy soups, smoothies, frozen desserts and more for years to come. It is the perfect item for group gifting.

2. Keurig 2.0 K200 Coffee Brewer
With a good brewing system like Keurig, we can look forward to our morning coffee and our favorite hot beverages on chilly afternoons for many years to come.

3. Danby 38Bottle Wine Cellar

Sure it’s not a “staple,” but this Danby frost-free wine cellar fridge is so tasteful and elegant. Great for group gifting, it’s like the promise of a lifestyle that we’ve worked hard for.

4. Cuisinart Combo Steam and Convection Oven

Toasting, broiling, baking, roasting, and browning. We’ll have fun experimenting with recipes and our innovative Cuisinart combination steam and convection oven. With group gift giving, this dream can become a reality.

5. Hamilton Beach Set & Forget Stay or Go Slow Cooker

Busy schedules, work, and social functions will be a breeze preparing dishes in this “stay or go” slow cooker. We can put in a meal in the mornings and eat when we get home. We can easily create dishes to take for group gatherings too.
