The Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce has compiled some ideas and categories to consider when registering for gifts. You may also want to consider non-traditional gifts requests such as charitable donations to a favorite cause, “green” gifts selections, or honeymoon donations. These days almost anything goes. Give your guests options! Choose products with a variety of prices; choose several places to shop that have shipping and delivery options. There are lots of online gift registries and national retail stores that offer your guests convenient ways to pick out the perfect gift. You and your partner should ask for items that you would normally not shop for yourself… this is a chance to have fun. aMixer aFood processor aBlender aToaster or toaster oven aMixing bowls aServing dishes aFondue sets aKitchen organizers aBar set aSilver trays aTea sets aBasic Dinner wear (8-12 place settings) aFormal China (8-12 place settings) aTable linens aFlat wear (basic & formal) Consider some basics to get you started. aVases aFrames aPhoto albums aCandlesticks aLuggage sets aBed linens aDecorative items aStem wear (basic & formal) aServing platters/plates aServing bowls aTeapot aSalt Shaker & Pepper Mill aVinegar & Oil aWine carafes aBar decanters aCrock Pots aKitchen tools aMicrowave aCoffeemaker aEspresso maker aCutting board aSkillets aCan opener aSaucepans aBake wear aPaper towel holders aBread baskets aMeasuring kits aSpice rack aCutlery sets Dinning RoomGeneral/Misc.
