It's fun to register for a few seasonal presents, and you absolutely should. But you'll also be glad that you asked for day-to-day staples, too. If you're looking for items that'll get a ton of air time in your shared home, consider these ideas, which are bound to become go-tos throughout your married life.


Must-Have Gadgets

Instead of making a daily visit to your favorite coffee shop, try getting your caffeine fix at home. A versatile machine like the one above makes both hot and cold drinks, plus various types of brews, so you'll be able to sip on whatever you're craving, whenever. If you aren't a coffee person, get a gadget for tea, or even one for the sparkling water that you love!
