There's no place like home for the holidays, which is why registering for thematic gifts is totally okay, whether or not your wedding occurs in the winter. As you start your new lives together, you'll want a warm, welcoming abode, and festive décor helps make that happen. Below, some ideas for what you can ask for that'll make Christmas or Hanukkah extra special as newlyweds.

Holiday Serveware

Host your first holiday as spouses proudly with serveware to match the season. This set of dishes, for example, puts a sporty spin on the typical reindeer motif, making it both fun and classy.

Personalized Ornaments

Make your home truly feel like your home with personalized accents, like letter ornaments. You can showcase your love by hanging both of your first initials with a matching ampersand ornament in between, or just buy one letter, for your shared last initial.

Posh Stockings

Sure, you can take some of your childhood holiday décor with you, but you might not want to (or your parents won't let you!). Buy your own items, like stockings, and make them match to represent your union.

Seasonal Table Décor

Festive registry items don't have to be explicitly holiday-themed. Seasonal patterns, like plaid or starry prints, are fashionable and celebratory. We love this table throw, for example.
