The dilemma: You want a home filled with impressive and quality products, but you know that you can't register for only high-end gifts. The solution: Find luxe presents with surprising price tags. To wow your house guests without disrespecting your wedding attendees' budgets, look to the following ideas for registry inspiration.  


Elegant Materials

Chic materials like marble instantly elevate a space, and luckily, there are plenty of options that aren't too pricey. Take this fancy table coaster. It may be a statement piece, but it won't reflect poorly on your gift giver's bank statement.

Durable Goods

Products that last are especially valuable. This sturdy hamper is the perfect example for your laundry room or bathroom, and the clean design makes it appear even more expensive.

Kitchen Upgrades

Try finding something with a reasonable cost that's one step up from a home essential. We love these gorgeous salt and pepper grinders, which are a nicer alternative to salt and pepper shakers.

Something Metallic

A touch of personality makes any home better, and a touch of silver, gold, or another shiny color only amplifies the appeal. Why not set the tone of a room—like the bedroom—with a stylish sign like this solid brass one?

Extra Décor

You don't need a ton of accent pieces, but they definitely make your abode seem more well-endowed. These architectural vessels look cutting edge (read: pricey) and can be used for anything from desk supplies to plants.
