While wedding registries typically include cookware, silver platters and bed linens, there’s no reason why you can’t add some fun items, especially ones that encourage you to spend quality time with your new spouse. Your wedding guests will be more than happy to buy you something that they know you will use and enjoy, whether it’s a stand mixer or a board game.

Picnic Basket: A picnic basket is a must-have for couples who love attending festivals or just enjoy a nice day in the park. If a wicker basket sounds too old-fashioned to you, look for a backpack or tote cooler. The insulated wine and accessory bag {pictured} from Target includes cotton napkins, plastic wine glasses, a bottle stopper and a bottle opener {$29.99, target.com}.

Beach Accessories: Living along the lakeshore means long days at the beach for sun-loving couples. Add plush beach towels, durable tote bags and a large beach umbrella {$139, potterybarn.com} to your registry.

Bicycles: Whether you like to bike leisurely or as part of your fitness regime {exercising with your new spouse is a great way to keep each other motivated}, a bicycle is a great addition to your wedding registry. You can choose to add two mountain bikes or, for some super cute couple fun, consider a tandem bike {$379.99,

Outdoor Games: Do you enjoy inviting friends over for backyard barbeques? Why not put some fun outdoor games—e.g., a badminton net, a bocce ball set or a croquet set {$45.99, walmart.com}—on your wedding registry?

Backyard Relaxation: Recreate that feeling of relaxation you experienced on your honeymoon with a nice set of outdoor chairs or a hammock {$199.99, macys.com}.

Board Games: If you love hosting game night, add traditional games like Monopoly, Scrabble and chess to your wedding registry or choose new, fun, group games like Catch Phrase and Cranium {$24.49, amazon.com}.
