September 6, 2023 by Kenmore

Wedding Registry Must-Have for Newly Engaged Couples

We’ve been told that some of you will hear wedding bells in the not-too-distant future. And to that, we say CONGRATULATIONS!

We’d also like to offer some timely advice: plan on being a little overwhelmed with about 101 details you’ll need to handle before the big day… including the gifts you’d like to have in your wedding registry. But whether you’re just starting out or fine-tuning your registry, it’s a good idea to include items you know that you can actually use once the honeymoon’s over.

Better Together

We’re all about togetherness, family, and making life easier. So we’re here to help you complete a registry that celebrates you as a couple and start your life together with all the right tools to simplify the everyday.

Best wedding registry pick under $50

One of the most versatile items for home cooks is a dependable, solid-steel wok for stir-frying or steaming healthy meals, deep-frying, or even just quickly heating up last night’s dinner. If you haven’t tried to cook in a wok before, never fear. Evenly cooking veggies, eggs, meats is quick and simple for chefs of any skillset.

Our Kenmore 14” Hammond Flat Bottom Carbon Steel Wok is made from heavy gauge 1.8-millimeter carbon steel that retains and distributes heat evenly, with a non-stick surface that allows you to use less fat and oils when cooking.  Its double-riveted acacia wood handles resist heat and provide an ergonomic grip.

Best pick under $100

If you think a toaster is just a toaster… you may want to think again.

The Kenmore Elite 4-Slice Long-Slot Toaster features easy-to-use electronic controls with smart settings including nine browning options, bagel, warm, defrost, and more. Extra-long, extra-wide slots with self-adjusting guides fit a variety of foods from standard slices to artisanal breads, bagels, waffles, and English muffins. And best of all, it simply looks stunning on your countertop.


Best wedding registry pick for larger rooms

Clean, fresh air is vital to maintaining healthy lungs, so why not go for an EnergyStar® certified air purifier that eliminates pollutants?

The Kenmore SMART PM4030 Air Purifier with SilentClean™ HEPA Technology can filter out up to 99.97% of airborne particles† fast, leaving rooms of up to 2300 sq. ft. smelling fresh, clean, and purified. Operate and manage your home environment anytime from the palm of your hand with the smart app control. It’s the perfect gift for newlyweds who will appreciate clean and healthy air.

Looking for a lower cost option? Moving into an apartment without quite that much square footage? We offer a variety of air purifiers to help meet both budgets and needs.

†HEPA System filters dirt, dust, and non-living matter such as pet dander.


Best pick for home chefs

Preparing and cooking delicious meals together is one of the best ways to bond as a couple. A quality set of kitchen knives is one of the most fundamental food-prep items found in any kitchen.

Our Kenmore Elite 14-Piece Stainless Steel Knife Set comes with a solid walnut-finished wood block that looks great on any counter. Each precision-formed blade is pro-quality, crafted from high-carbon steel. They are finely sharpened with a diamond wheel for superior precision and accuracy. And with ergonomic handles for a balanced grip.

Best wedding registry pick for pet lovers

If you have four-legged friends that tend to track mud (and more) into your home on the regular, then you know all too well: accidents happen.

A portable spot cleaner is a handy tool to remove those inevitable spills and stains quickly. The Kenmore SpotLite™ Portable Carpet Cleaner is perfect for messy eaters and pets that may have accidents.

Compact in size, but powerful in suction, this cleaner will help make your newlywed friends’ life easier and more comfortable. It removes the toughest stains from carpets, upholstery, and other surfaces, making them look brand new again.

And did we mention it was the winner of the 2023 Good Housekeeping Best Cleaning and Organizing Award?

Setting Up Your Amazon Wedding Registry

If you haven’t done so already, one of the best places to set up a wedding registry is on Amazon. Not only does Amazon carry virtually all the traditional gifts from dishes to flatware to sheets and towels, but the Amazon Wedding Registry program is super-easy to use. And for those items your guests miss, they offer a special completion discount of up to 20% off any items left on your registry!

Here’s how to get started…

  1. Simply go to Amazon Wedding.
  2. Click on the “Create Your Registry” button.
  3. Follow the simple on-screen instructions to set up and personalize your registry.
  4. Explore suggested “ideas and inspiration” items and popular gift ideas to populate your registry with the gifts you want.

Of course, you’ll want to include practical items like cookware, housewares, small kitchen appliances, floor care, and other helpful household items. And (as you may have guessed) we have a few suggestions of our own, for every room in your home.

Best of luck!

Researching and registering for just the right wedding gifts can be a bit of a handful, but we’re here to help make life easier. More importantly, we want to help make your life together as happy, healthy, delicious, and enjoyable as it should be. And we wish you nothing but joy in the years to come!
