A KitchenAid is nice, but have you ever used a Ninja Blender? The idea that a wedding registry is a way for a soon-to-be-married couples to stock up on the goods they need to start their new life together is about as outdated as the idea of registering for a full set of fancy china. And that means today’s registries are waaay more varied than they were in the past, and just as likely to include your standard KitchenAid mixer as they are a request for the funds for a beachfront couple's massage in Tahiti.
But as wild as wedding gifts can get (lingerie from mom, anyone?), there are some classics that newlyweds will always appreciate — as well as some surprising ideas that even brides- and grooms-to-be might not even know they want. These presents are the ones real newlyweds admit to using most after the wedding.
