Us Southern ladies know how to fill up a wedding registry with beautiful home goods, and sometimes the men feel left out. Add a few items to your registry that he’ll love just as much as you do.
Here are eight options from our friends at Zola that are sure to suit any husband’s tastes.
1. For the Entertainer
Tuscany Classics 4-Piece Craft Beer Collection, $40
Craft beers run rampant in the South, and this set is perfect for the man who likes to test them out. The four-piece collection by Lenox contains an 18 oz. pilsner beer glass, an 18 oz. IPA beer glass, a 20 oz. pint beer glass, and a 22 oz. wheat beer glass – a great choice for hosting beer night that’ll complement your kitchen style, too.
2. For The Adventurer
Tungsten 3P Tent, $259
If he’s a Smoky Mountain enthusiast, register for a sturdy tent. This Tungsten option by Marmot is made of durable, waterproof fabric with taped seams for a functional sleeping option off the beaten path. The tent includes a footprint, two vestibules, two D-shaped doors, interior pockets, and even a spot for your headlamp.
3. For the Grill Master
Double Backsplash Grill/Griddle, $80
Meet a gift that will certainly keep on giving. This dual-purpose pan can go straight on the grill, which is great for the Southern barbecues we love without the hassle of food falling through the cracks. One side of this Nordic Ware piece is a flat griddle – ideal for sautéing veggies or shellfish – and the other side is a ribbed grill surface for perfect steaks.
4. For The Movie Buff
EasyPop Hot Air Popcorn Maker, $40
He doesn’t necessarily have to be a movie buff to appreciate the fun and health-conscious choice that is an air popper. However, registering for this party-pleaser by Cuisinart will simplify his (and your!) movie night clean up with its removable, dishwasher-safe chute and butter-warming tray. No more burnt microwave popcorn during Steel Magnolias!
5. For the Culinary Whiz
Avance Pasta Maker, $299
He will love this, and you will love the results. For the Southern gentleman who loves to cook, what better to register for than a pasta maker? This fully automatic option from Philips can push out a full pound of fresh fettuccine in 15 minutes, and also guarantees perfect texture. The pasta maker comes with shaping discs for spaghetti, penne, fettuccine, and lasagna, and also includes a storage drawer for easy kitchen organization.
6. For The Photographer
Zip Mobile Printer, $130
In the age of smartphone photos, this pocket-sized photo printer by Polaroid shares all the best backyard moments. Using a wireless Bluetooth or NFC connection, the device connects with a mobile app that gives you instant edit access, and then prints 2×3 full-color photos. Don’t worry about smudging or ink with this handy printer – no cartridges are needed, and photos print in under a minute.
7. For The Traveler
World Map Wall Hanging, $34
If he loves to travel, bring a piece of the world to your Southern homestead with this stunning wall hanging by Richwood Creations. The art is intricately laser-engraved onto an unfinished piece of cherry wood, making for a beautiful conversation piece that you won’t mind hanging up and he won’t mind talking about.
8. For The Book-Lover
Large Takara Column Shelf, $110
If there’s no room in your new house for a private reading nook, register for this brilliant Column Shelf by Design Ideas. The sturdy teak wood will hold over a dozen of his favorite novels (think Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird) in addition to being a functional piece of decor. Register for both the small and the large column shelf and hang side-by-side for extra storage and added flair.
