If you and your partner have been living together for a while ahead of your wedding, chances are you're probably pretty well stocked with the basics, making your wedding registry wish list kind of challenging. Here's the good news: Instead of using the generosity of your friends and family to start a home from scratch, you can identify some key areas where you'd like to upgrade your dwelling and splurge on those! Whether you want to create an outdoor space with patio furniture, elevate your coffee game with an espresso machine or create a bar area complete with a cocktail shaker, we've got you covered on 22 of the best wedding gift ideas you can add to your registry now.

But before you can start building out your wish list, begin by making your registry on The Knot. As the industry's best all-in-one registry tool, we make it easy to compile all of your gift requests in one, shoppable list, from kitchen appliances to cash funds and even gift cards or date night experiences.
