We're 25 and 31. Both out of our parents house for years but neither of us are what can be considered 'well stocked' on the housewares front.
Between us we have two lamps, two twin beds (yikes), a futon, coffee table, an oldddddd recliner that I'm afraid will NOT be joining us at our future mutual home, several TVs and limited amounts of cookware.
We know to register for all the 'regular' stuff you see on those 'suggestion' lists provided to you by the stores when you register.
We're looking for unique items you might have obtained over the years that you find to be godsend. Couldn't live without or wouldn't want to at least.
Items of any sort. We are not opposed to asking for fun stuff!
We: both like to cook, go camping, have movie marathons, read, have an appreciation for the 50s and 60s type Americana decor.
I know he'd love to be set up with a good tool set but isn't really a hand person (more would like to learn to be) so he'd like to know what are the essential things to obtain.
So - either suggestions for lesser known items. OR recommendations for brands of cookware/towels/bedding/etc thare are good quality but not too pricey. Neither of us are into the whole fancy schmancy brand stuff. We are both practical but still appreciate quality.
