If you and your future spouse share a love for all things gourmet, Macy’s has top registry items for you to stock up your kitchen, from a stand mixer to whip up mouthwatering pastries, a kitchen counter herb garden for fresh flavors, and an Instant Pot for dinners on the fly.

Here are the ultimate foodie registry gifts for the couple who loves to cook together.

Stand Mixer

There’s a reason this classic registry item comes up again and again. This stand mixer is a must-have for any couple who likes to bake together. With a stylish design that makes this countertop friendly, the stand mixer can quickly tackle doughs, batters, and more (we’re even talking shredding chicken).

Pasta Maker

There are plenty of attachments to add to your stand mixer, but the must-have for any real foodie couple is a pasta maker. This easy-to-use tool makes it quick and simple to whip up your own fresh spaghetti and fettuccine, so you can really show off your cooking chops with your next dinner guests.

Container Set

A well-stocked kitchen also means a well-stocked pantry. Make sure yours is so by registering for a container set. Its airtight storage system seals and protects food with the push of a button. The stacking containers are great for organizing pasta, flour, sugar, cereal, and more in your newlywed pantry.

With everything you need to whip up the perfect date night meal—potato masher, can opener, whisk, meat tenderizer, pizza cutter, ice cream scoop, and more—you’ll never have to worry about a misstep in the kitchen again.

A cast-iron French oven is a must-have registry item for any serious home cooks. The stove and oven friendly dish can make loads of impressive dishes including pot roasts, whole chickens, stews, soups, and chili.

herb garden

Herb Garden

If you and your partner are still apartment living—or just don’t have the right outdoor space—but crave the farm-to-table life, an herb garden is just the thing to register for. The counter-sized greenhouse uses LED lights to grow fresh herbs year-round and has a smart system that reminds you when it’s time to feed and water your plants. The garden comes with Genovese basil, curly parsley, dill, mint, thyme, and Thai basil to get your fresh flavors started.
