Now that more and more couples are living together before the wedding, and often in cozy (read: tiny) apartments, registering for more than just the classic wedding gifts has become the norm. Although many couples are still request household necessities—and often use their registry as a way to upgrade the kitchen and bedding essentials they've had since their very first apartments—there's been an uptick in non-traditional gift picks. Whether you're out of space for all of the coolest kitchen gadgets or simply don't need another set of sheets, know that there are other gifts you can register for. One of our favorites? Gift subscriptions.
That's right, you can register for a gift that keeps on giving long after your ceremony and reception are over. Plus, a subscription you and your significant other can share throughout your first year of marriage is a fun way to stay connected. Love to cook? There's a subscription service for that. Need to de-stress after planning your dream wedding? Then register for a monthly at-home massage. And if the only kitchen staple you actually need is a fresh bag of coffee, you'll be happy to know there's a gift subscription for that, too.
If you love the idea of registering for a gift you can enjoy time and time again, then check out some of our favorites gift subscription services, and add then to your big-day registry today.
