What to Put on a Wedding Registry for Guys

If you asked that question just a few decades ago, the answer would have been something like “power tools,” or “a new grill,” or maybe “a cocktail shaker.”

While those are still great wedding registry ideas for guys, today’s men aren’t shoved into such neat little boxes of what they should and shouldn’t like.

In other words, there are no rules when it comes to the best gift ideas for grooms.

The best way to know what he wants? Include him in the decision making process when you’re setting up your registry!

That said, if you want to include some surprises for him (or you and your future Mr. are having a hard time deciding what to put on your registry), I’ve come up with a few ideas that I think he’ll adore.

While I never want to perpetuate the myth that men should only like “manly” things, I have included some power tools, grilling essentials, and yes, a cocktail shaker.

Not because these are “manly man” things, but because they’re essentials for just about any home.

Got it? Good! Now, on with the gift ideas! I’ll break it down into a few categories:

  • Kitchen and cooking wedding registry “power tools”
  • Tools for men who love to entertain (this is where you’ll find that cocktail shaker!)
  • Actual power tools for men who love working with their hands

The 12-piece set comes with all the pots and pans he’ll ever need to cook up a storm, all in a “goes with just about anything” steel color (because, you know, it IS steel).

2. Cast Iron Dutch Oven

Cast Iron Dutch Oven

Fun fact: I recently learned how to cook. Well, sort of. I can do more than boil water for mac and cheese, and that’s a MAJOR accomplishment for me.

I keep seeing recipes that call for a dutch oven, and up until a few days ago I had zero idea what that was. Turns out, it’s just a really big heavy-duty pot.

While they come in all different colors, I’m really loving the old-fashioned Little House on the Prairie style of this one from Lodge.

It may not be as cutesy as a red one, but as they say, it’s “brutally tough” and designed to last throughout decades.

Lodge Cast Iron Dutch Oven with Iron Cover, Pre-Seasoned, 7-Quart
  • Brutally tough for decades of cooking
  • Pre-seasoned and ready for use
  • Heats slowly and evenly
  • Superior heat retention and distribution
  • Great for camping and outdoor cooking

3. A Really Fantastic Set of Knives

A Really Fantastic Set of Knives

Whether he’s into cooking, baking or grilling, he’s going to need a way to chop, dice and slice all those wonderful ingredients!

I’m currently lusting after this Oprah-favorite set from Fleischer & Wolf.

Not only will the magnetic block look super stylish in the kitchen, but it even comes with a knife sharpener.

4. A Retro-Style Food Processor

A Retro-Style Food Processor

A food processor is so much more than just a blender for making smoothies, as I’ve only just learned.

The right one can make fast business of slicing, shredding and chopping. If it can look cute to boot, more power to it!

While I love the retro look of this model, it does come in other colors, including plain old white.

Cuisinart DFP-14WGY 14-Cup Food Processor, White/Gold
  • Includes stainless-steel slicing disc, shredding disc, and new chopping blade
  • 720-Watt large-capacity food processor with intuitive "on" and "off/pulse" buttons
  • 14-Cup lexan work bowl; extra-large Feed tube; small and large pushers
  • Spatula, instruction/recipe booklet; dishwasher-safe parts
  • Product Built to North American Electrical Standards

5. A duo of pressure cookers

What’s better than one Instant Pot pressure cooker? Why, two, of course!

If you’re thinking that’s overkill, let me tell you about my friend. She has an entire army of these things. Enough to, in fact, feed an army.

While I only have one, apparently for people who love to cook (or live to cook), you can never have too many.

This darling duo comes with a standard Instant Pot and an itty bitty companion for those times when you just need to whip up something small for breakfast.
