If you’re not excited about your registry, you’re not doing it right. After all, you get to hand-select your own appliances, décor and accessories for your newlywed nest—what could be better?

But if you’re having trouble narrowing down the options, it might be helpful to see what other couples are registering for (and loving). And according to the registry experts at Bed Bath & Beyond, these are the most popular and beloved items among newlywed couples—aka, you pretty much have to register for them.
