When it comes to choosing what store to choose for your registry there are a few priorities to keep in mind. First you want to make sure that all of your friends and family have access, so you’ll have to choose a store with many locations. Second, you want to make sure that the store you choose has a range of items of all prices for your various guests. Last, you want to choose a store that has tons of items that you’ll need for your home.

What checks all of these boxes? Choose a Target registry!

Target has hundreds of locations around the country and tons of gifts that you’ll really appreciate that fall under anyone’s budget. With a target registry for your upcoming wedding you’re sure to find plenty of household items that you’ll continue to use for years to come. Here are our favorites.

Food Processor

You’ll want to be an appropriate amount of thought into this Target wedding registry item. You don’t to overwhelm your countertop with the biggest food processor you can find. You also don’t want to get one so small that you can barely cook a meal. Once you nail the size, you’ll find that this is one of the most highly used items in your kitchen.

It’s extra important to put this item on your registry list. It’s one of those things that you’d love to buy for yourself but always put off until later or have trouble justifying the expense.


These bad boys are possibly the best registry items you can get! If you’ve never had the pleasure, there’s something special about posting up in front of the BBQ and taking your time with the grill. Crack a cold one and chat with your neighbors as the kids run through the sprinklers.

As an added bonus, for those of you who have a little trouble getting your man to lean in in the kitchen, for some crazy reason husbands go nuts over cooking with a BBQ. If you’re ever not feeling up to dinner at the end of a long day, just call up the hubby and tell him you’re feeling like burgers tonight. He’ll be happy to oblige.

Dishes & Flatware

You won’t realize that you desperately need a solid set of flatware until you host your first dinner party and find yourself serving a delicious meal with mismatched plates, knives and forks. You’ll also be very surprised at how many different shapes and sizes that you’ll need for the various meals you’ll be serving over the years. Have you ever tried to eat soup out of a shallow bowl? You need something for every occasion.

Don’t skimp out when choosing your sets. These are items that you, your family, and your friends will be using for an extremely long time. You may get the urge to compromise to save your guests a few bucks, but dishes and flatware of higher quality stand up in the dishwasher better and keep their shape for years and years.


You can’t overestimate the value of a good set of pots and pans. Put a good set on your target gift registry and look forward to evenly cooked food, easy cleanup, and better tasting food. The number one feature that you should be in search for is even heating. Flimsy pans often overheat in the middle, burning the center of your food while leaving the outsides undercooked.

The second feature is non-stick making it easy to clean. Sticky pans require more scrubbing, which means you’ll wear off the coating. Or, just as bad, food will get burned on and impossible to remove which compromises the next meal.

Wine Glasses

A nice set of wine glasses are exactly what to put on wedding registry from Target. Whether you’re cracking a bottle of merlot as a couple or serving chardonnay at dinner, a proper wine glass really sets things off. There are dozens of different styles to choose from, and recommended shapes for different types of wine. It’s not practical

If wine isn’t your style, the same advice applies to a classy set of tumblers for your whisky or mugs for your beer.


Expensive luggage may seem like a frivolous purchase, until you travel that is. If you choose luggage as one of your best wedding registry items, you can look forward to a lot less stress during your trips abroad. A 3-piece hardback set of luggage used to cost an arm and a leg. Thanks to Target, you can get glorious style at a reasonable budget.

Beyond looking good, your possessions will stay intact and you’ll have no trouble at all spotting them at the carousel at baggage claim. Checking in and out of the hotel or resort will feel so much more glamorous from now on.

Under Sink Water System

This registry Target item may be something that you feel you don’t need or want. But, try it once and we promise you’ll never want to go back. Reverse Osmosis removes an incredible amount of particles from your tap and delivers the purest drink you can ask for. After a short while you’ll find that you’re drinking more water and feeling healthier as a result. If you have children, you’ll also get a sense of pride when you hand them a cup.

If you do choose this as one of your wedding registry items, make sure to also ask for filter replacements. Replacement filters aren’t cheap and it’s not a good idea to leave the dirty ones in for an extended period of time.

Coffee Maker

To some of us, coffee is the nectar of life. If a cup of joe is the way you start your day then a premium coffee maker is an absolute must for your wedding registry Target. Hunting for a bargain is easy when you’re shopping for yourself, which turns into disappointment eventually. Luckily, Target offers coffee makers for all tastes and conveniences that won’t break the bank. Start your day off right from day 1 and for the next 10+ years. You may not use a food processor each and every day, but you’ll use a coffee maker on a very regular basis. Highly recommended.

Bar Cart

A bar cart may not be a household necessity, but it sure is one of those unique wedding registry ideas that makes you feel like a real grown up. Stashing bottles of wine and spirits in the back of a cupboard is for your college years. Now that you’re married, a proper bar cart setup is the best way to display your collection of drinks and decanters, and free up some of that cupboard space for something a little more practical. It’s also super classy when it comes time to host a dinner party.


Not everything on your list can be fun and beautiful, you also have to be a little bit responsible when it comes to your wedding registry items. The wrong vacuum cleaner will make cleaning a real struggle. Lugging around something that hurts your back to carry and doesn’t really do the job means you’re going to end up skipping the chore. The right vacuum, however, will make tidying up a breeze. Of course if you really hate cleaning, Target carries a few robotic vacuum models. They even carry a mopping model for those of you with hardwood or laminate that you want in constant “mom’s coming for a visit” condition.

These top wedding registry items are our best recommendations. Of course, your style could be a little bit different. The key to nailing your things to put on wedding registry is to think long term. Ask yourself what you really need and what you really want, what you’re going to use on a daily basis, and what you’re really going to regret not owning for those once in while moments. Don’t ask for things at target just because they’re the most expensive, and don’t ask for things that you don’t really need just because you think your guests can afford them. Get what you need and want, and enjoy them to the fullest.
