Linens: Life Is A Beautiful Mess
Life is a beautiful mess, and what better way to keep things tidy, and eco-friendly, than by having a selection of tea towels and Swedish dish clothes on hand. These items are great to have on your registry as they provide a wonderful opportunity for those with smaller budgets to be able to help set up your new household without breaking their bank.
Tea towels provide many benefits beyond drying dishes or your hands. Tea towels are very handy for quick pot holders bringing items out of the oven. You can also use them when serving a meal on a tray as they will hold the dishes in their places while you carry the tray out. Select for the towels that you like, so that your guests find it easy to pick which ones you like.

Cookware & Bakeware: Quality & Style For All Your Kitchen Adventures
This is a great time to establish quality cooking and bakeware that you’ll love using, and potentially pass down for future generations to use. A baking dish is an essential multi-purpose piece of cookware that investing in a heavy-duty, cast-iron ceramic coated dish is well worth it. (Browse our online selection here.) The ability to produce everything from cakes to casseroles to roasts all in one baking dish is wonderfully practical, and the baking results from the heavier ceramic dishes are consistently good.
Other essential bakeware pieces will depend upon how much space you have in your cabinets. If you are looking for basics, and to maximize your space, we recommend adding the following to your registry:
Cooling Rack (Shop here)
OXO Goodgrips Pro Non-Stick Baking Sheet (Shop here)
Round Cake Pan (Shop here)
Loaf Pan (we recommend getting two) (Shop here)
OXO Goodgrips Pro Non-Stick 12 Cup Muffin Pan (Shop here)
