Macy's didn't launch the first wedding registry program (that honor goes to Marshall Field's, a department store in Chicago, which was later acquired by Macy's), but the historic chain has certainly become a classic go-to when it comes time for couples to build their wish lists.
And for good reason, too: Macy's carries the big-name brands you'd expect, plus a few exclusive brands and products. And the department store has all the Martha Stewart gear (love her or hate her, the woman knows how to design some good-looking, totally functional kitchen stuff!).
Here are some things you should consider adding to your Macy's registry.
- Thirstystone Marble & Wood Striped Round Paddleboard, $47: You know those nights when you're not sure what to make for dinner? If you had this cheeseboard, you could put some cheese, meats, and garnishes on it and call it a meal.
- KitchenAid Architect 4-Slice Long Slot Toaster, $150: Married mornings should consist of you two sitting at the table, reading the paper, drinking coffee, and eating toast. This appliance (a Macy's exclusive) can help with the latter part of that.
- Hotel Collection Modern Porcelain 12-Piece Dinnerware Set, $120: It's not quite Millennial Pink, but this rose quartz color is even prettier and will probably stay in style much longer. Just think of how nice this dinnerware set will look on your kitchen table.
- Honey Can Do 4-Pc. Glass & Bamboo Canister Set, $57: Keep these airtight canisters on the counter or in the pantry and they'll keep your dry goods nice and fresh.
- Dansk 9-Inch Round Serving Bowl, $50: Speckled and rustic, this stoneware serving bowl checks all the boxes.
- Martha Stewart Collector's Enameled Cast Iron 6-Quart Casserole, $180: Feel bad asking your friends and family to spend a ton of money on a Le Creuset for you? This version from Martha Stewart is a fraction of the price.
- Corningware French White 10-Piece Bakeware Set, $80: This bakeware set is as fancy as you are, Ms. About-to-Be-Married Person! The pieces can go from oven to table and dress up dinner parties or even casual Monday night meals.
- Hotel Collection Black 20-Piece Flatware Set, $200: If you don't want real silver or even silver flatware, you might like this sleek, jet-black set.
- Calphalon Signature Non-Stick 5x10-Inch Loaf Pan, $45: Do people go bananas for your banana bread? Yes? Then you might want to ask for this hefty nonstick loaf pan.
- Martha Stewart Collection Galvanized Serving Tray, $66: Another super-cute item from Martha, this galvanized serving tray could sit on the table in the dining room or help you carry condiments outside during barbecues.
