1. Add a cooking class to the registry. You & your partner will garner some important life skills, and get to eat some delicious food along the way.

2. Ask for some gourmet food , both pantry items & fresh, to spice up your new life together. You can request an awesome fresh seafood dinner from Harbour Trading, or a set of flavored vinegar you know you'll use on fresh salads.

3. If you & your partner love fresh flowers ask for a subscription from Bouqs.com or BloomsyBox - both well reviewed companies that start at $40 a month for delivery of beautiful bouquets.

4. Indulge your interest in the outdoors & get some great items for camping, or your favorite outdoor activities like hiking, kayaking, fishing, etc.
