​The focus of any wedding registry usually falls onto new toys—the electrics. More specifically, the kitchen and living room electrics like stand mixers or sound systems. Don't get us wrong, you totally have a right to be psyched about those upgrades, but don't forget about the bed and bath basics that should be on your registry too. Trust us when we say a genuine down comforter will make you just as excited as that new smart TV.

Mattress Pad

Dream Solutions allergen barrier mattress pad from Sears

Look for a mattress pad that will protect your mattress, repel moisture and act as an extra layer of softness. Some even have dust mite and allergen barriers for a super clean night's sleep. Make sure whatever you choose is machine washable.

Sheet Sets

Sheet sets for a wedding registry

For each bed in your home, plan on having one set of sheets on the bed (a flat sheet and fitted sheet), one in the laundry and one tucked away in the linen closet. And remember, the higher the thread count, the softer the sheet.

Down Comforter

Comfortable white down comforter from Garnet Hill

Any grown-up bed needs a quality comforter—one that just calls your name after a long day and envelops you in a cocoon of coziness. Chose between the light, medium or winter weight to achieve your perfect balance. Or register for two weights and swap with the seasons.

Duvet Covers

Quilted duvet cover from Target

A washable cover for your comforter is always a good idea—it can easily be thrown into the washing machine if breakfast-in-bed goes wrong—unlike most comforters. Register for two duvet covers and matching shams so you can change up your look seasonally.

Bed Blanket

Stone washed linen bed blanket from Coyuchi

A light blanket can be a good alternative for warmer months and the perfect added layer come winter when the temps drop. A stone-washed linen is soft to the touch—especially if you go organic.

Sound Machine

Adaptive Sound Technology sleeping machine

Masking out disruptive noise makes for a much more restful night's sleep (especially if the noise is coming from your partner!). This sound machine has over 10 sounds to choose from and it has adaptive sound technology, so it adjusts in real-time to noise levels around you.

Adaptive Sound Technologies sound machine, $73, Amazon.com

Bath Mat

Crate and Barrel bath mat

Stepping out of the shower onto a cold tile floor is never pleasant. Cushion your step with a bath mat. Make sure to choose one with high absorbency—you don't want it to get soggy from a single shower.

Bath Towels

Under the Canopy organic bath towels

Plush bath towels will lend some luxe vibes to any bathroom. Choose bath-sheets for a cozy oversized towel, or the standard size for a better fit when sharing the towel bar.

Register for: 4 to 6

Hand Towels

Iron Gates hand towels from Bed Bath and Beyond

If you're in love with towels that don't come with coordinating hand towels, don't forget to scan a few of those too. Go with colors or a pattern in a similar palette, but a few shades darker or lighter than your current linens so they all look cohesive.

Register for: 4 to 6

Iron Gates hand towel, $20, BedBathandBeyond.com

Scale

Fitbit bathroom scale from Best Buy

Calling all health-conscious couples: don't forget about a tech-forward scale. This model can track weight, BMI and body fat and connect with your Fitbit tracking for easy monitoring.
