Out of all the pre-wedding tasks on an engaged couple’s to-do list, we think creating a registry is one of the most fun. After all, what’s not to like about compiling a wish list of items you’ve been eyeing for your newlywed home? While the registry helps make the gift-giving process easier for your guests, it’s also a helpful tool for you and your partner to identify the appliances you’ve been wanting to upgrade and the new ones you’ve been eager to stock your house with.
If you and your partner identify as self-proclaimed homebodies, you’re going to want to fill your registry with essentials that help create a more comfortable and enjoyable living space. If you aren’t sure where to start, we asked the Brides editorial team to share their favorite picks for couples who love spending time at the house. On our list are kitchen staples to simplify and improve the cooking experience, such as a coffee brewer for your early-morning cup of joe or an air fryer toaster for mouthwatering meals. Our editors have also suggested an array of décor to generate a welcoming, homey ambiance, from throw blankets to plants. You’ll also find loungewear, whether it’s a silk kimono or a pair of leather slides, to make unwinding at home as cozy as possible.

“If there’s one thing this summer has taught me, it’s that I need to pay closer attention to the air quality inside my home. After several smokey days outside, I realized that things weren’t much better inside the four walls of my house. As a total homebody, I love that this air purifier makes the air inside my home cleaner and safer, and I know I’ll love the humidifying function come winter. It’s the perfect option to add to your own wedding registry and a gift you’ll be glad to have all year long.” — Gabriella Rello Duffy, Editorial Director
“I am 100 percent a homebody, and one of my absolute musts for feeling cozy at home is having a chic pair of slides to walk around the house in (I hate wearing ‘outside’ shoes inside!). I’m obsessed with these slides from the masterminds at M. Gemi. Sure, they make great outdoor shoes as well, but that molded calfskin footbed is so comfy and therapeutic to wear while hanging around the house. To me, these slides can function like an elevated slipper. Why not feel glamorous while lounging at home?!” — Ellie Nan Storck, Senior Editor
“Martinis anyone?! If you’d rather enjoy the comfort of your own home while basking in your newlywed bliss, ask guests to help stock your mini bar with premium spirits, like this Vera Wang x Chopin Vodka. This vodka is made from sustainably grown Augusta potatoes (resulting in a medium-bodied, semi-dry taste) and comes in a trendy keepsake bottle designed by the ‘Queen’ of wedding fashion herself, Vera Wang.” — Corinne Pierre-Louis, Senior Editor
“If you and your future spouse regularly enjoy at-home date nights spent whipping up new dishes in the kitchen, you’ll want to add this Air Fryer Toaster Oven by Cuisinart to your registry. This item has both toaster oven and air fryer capabilities with multiple settings, so you can replace the two separate appliances for a more compact utility, which will free up counter space. Plus, the technology is unmatched: It toasts food quickly and evenly, and the air fryer portion makes items perfectly crispy.” — Lilly Blomquist, Assistant Editor
“Couples who love spending time at home appreciate a delicious homemade cup of coffee in the morning, so they’ll need the perfect coffee brewer. Bruvi is a state-of-the-art, single-serve coffee brewer that will make their lives easier. It features touchscreen technology and eco-friendly pods, and it can whip up all of their favorite morning beverages, from espresso to cold brew and infused coffee.” — Chloe Caldwell, Commerce Writer
“Every home needs a good blanket, and not only does this faux fur throw look extra luxe, but it’s also super cozy. The blanket has a nice weight to it, which makes it double as a weighted blanket. I have it on my bed, and it makes me feel more relaxed and swaddled every night, even during the summer nights. I’ve had this blanket for over a year, and I haven’t had any issues with shedding like some other faux fur designs. With nine different colors to choose from, you can either go for a neutral or a bold pop of color, like emerald green or magenta.” — Emily Cieslak, Associate Commerce Editor
“A plant that’s easy to keep alive and needs minimal watering? Count me in! Easyplant is a company that sells gorgeous plants that include an innovative self-watering system. All you need to do is water your plant once a month, and the rest takes care of itself. I have the medium anthurium in black, and I absolutely love its chic, gothic vibes. Easyplant has a wide variety of plants to choose from, and all of them come with a gorgeous ceramic pot. This is the perfect gift for someone who loves the look of plants but can’t remember to water them on a schedule. We have all been there! Now, there’s no reason to worry.” — Kelly Chiello, Associate Photo Director
“There aren’t a lot of things I’d redo about my wedding, but building a smart home via my registry would be on the top of my list. This Google Nest Cam can be used outdoors or inside, and it can work via battery or power cord, which means monitoring the inside and outside of your property is as easy as installing the mount and syncing up with the app. I love how easy this camera is to use, and it gives me peace of mind when I’m home or away. Pair it with a few other essentials from the G Store, like the Nest Battery-Powered Doorbell and the Nest Wifi Pro, and you’re well on your way to the ultimate smart home.” — Gabriella Rello Duffy, Editorial Director
“Matching silk kimonos? Yes, please! A pair of these beautiful silk kimonos would be a great addition to a wedding registry for the homebody. Cozying up in these together on the couch sounds like just the ticket for an at-home movie night.” — Ellie Nan Storck, Senior Editor
“If you’re going to lounge around at home, why not do it in style? This Lurex Lounge Set by Sleeper takes the cake as the most chic and trendy at-home outfit. The best part? You can easily wear the full look out of the house, too.” — Corinne Pierre-Louis, Senior Editor
“For homebodies who love jumpstarting their morning with piping-hot pour-over coffee or unwinding after a long day with a cup of tea, you need to stock your newlywed home with this electric kettle. Not only does this appliance have a chic exterior that will elevate any kitchen, but the technology makes boiling water a breeze. You can set your preferred temperature on the attached screen and watch the number increase as the liquid heats up. Once you’ve made your beverage, it will stay hot for up to one hour!” — Lilly Blomquist, Assistant Editor
“As someone who is sensitive to scents, I can’t have a diffuser or plug-in scent constantly running. That’s why I love this smart diffuser. It connects to your smartphone, and you can select exactly when you want to turn it on and off, as well as select the intensity of the scent. You don’t even have to be home to do so! This makes it perfect for turning it on when I know I will have guests coming over or if I simply want it to run for an hour. The diffuser holds two different scents, and you can choose from popular brands, like Nest, Brooklyn Candle Co., etc.” — Emily Cieslak, Associate Commerce Editor
“One of the perks of being a homebody is that you don’t have to get all dolled up. Since you’re going to be kicking back at home, why not lounge around in a robe? This Super-Plush Robe from Brooklinen made of Turkish cotton provides optimal comfort and coziness. Throwing on this ultra-soft garment will feel luxurious and indulgent no matter the time of day.” — Lilly Blomquist, Assistant Editor
“Boll and Branch’s Signature Sheets are the real deal for sleeping comfortably. They’re the perfect luxurious gift for any couple. I run hot when I sleep, and these buttery and breathable sheets keep me regulated and cozy all throughout the night. The smooth and soft finish just gets better with time. They get softer and softer after every wash! I currently have them in sage, but there are an array of neutral colors available to match every bedroom. Don’t sleep on getting this sheet set!” — Kelly Chiello, Associate Photo Director
“Whether it’s smoothies for breakfast or milkshakes for dessert, this Oster Pro Series Blender will help make cooking at home a simpler, more efficient task for you and your partner. For a delicious dish for two, all you have to do is throw in the ingredients and choose your preferred setting using the touch-activated controls. Not only is this item user-friendly, but it’s also effective: The technology thoroughly blends every bit for a smooth result. Plus, it’s dishwasher-safe!” — Lilly Blomquist, Assistant Editor
