Are you looking for unique wedding registry items for a healthy home? There are many wellness items and experiences you can add to your registry if you and your partner prioritize health and wellness!
The featured picks are from either Blueprint or Amazon, two registries that enable you to build a registry with products from multiple stores.
I used Blueprint for my wedding registry because I could curate a unique registry with money funds, experiences, gift cards, and products from different stores. I highly suggest it if you want to do the same with your registry!

A healthy home starts with a pleasant environment. It’s more than just wanting your home to look pretty. You want to make sure it is clean, free from pollutants, and conducive to a positive mood.
An air purifier will help get rid of pollutants in your home like dust, pollen, smoke, pet dander, and odors. If you or your partner suffers from allergies or asthma, make sure your air purifier has a HEPA filter, like the one featured above (a top pick from Wirecutter). A HEPA filter removes even the tiniest particles in the air.
Essential Oil Diffuser
Having an essential oil diffuser not only fills your home with enjoyable scents but also provides therapeutic benefits. An essential oil diffuser is for aromatherapy, which is the use of essential oils to improve your mood, health, and well-being.
For example, citrus oils can boost mood, and lavender oil can help you relax to reduce anxiety or improve sleep. Holiday spice essential oils also provide benefits that you can read about in How to Use Holiday Spices to Boost Your Health and Happiness.
Indoor plants provide many benefits to our homes. First, they are beautiful decorations. Next, they are natural air purifiers that absorb toxins in the air and produce oxygen. They are also natural humidifiers because they release moisture. On top of improving air quality, they can boost our mood! Studies show they can reduce our stress, reduce depression, and improve our productivity.

Similar to the air purifier, a quality vacuum eliminates dirt and dust from your home. A robot vacuum is a convenient way to automate a regular cleaning of your floors to keep up a clean environment!
Quality sleep is essential for our health and wellness! Sleep items on traditional registries can include bed sheets, pillows, and mattresses. But these items are just the start of getting good sleep! Prioritize sleep by adding these additional unique wedding registry items for a healthy home.
Featured: Luna Adult Weighted Blanket
Weighted blankets may help with insomnia, anxiety, and stress. The weight and pressure they provide help the body produce serotonin and melatonin. Keep in mind the rule of thumb for purchasing a weighted blanket is for it to be 10 percent of your body weight.
The featured weighted blanket is the one I use to help with my sleep and anxiety. It is a lower-cost option that is still high quality, machine washable, and an attractive design that looks good displayed on your bed or couch.
A wake-up light simulates us rising with the sun, which is a better way for us to wake up than with an alarm clock. This light is especially helpful if you use blackout curtains or need to wake up when it is still dark out.

Blackout curtains are a must for quality sleep if your home has outdoor light coming in from the windows. These curtains will keep light from coming into your bedroom so you can produce more melatonin.
White Noise Machine
A white noise machine gives a constant noise that calms the listener and blocks out other noises that occur throughout the night. If you wake up to sounds, this product will help you better stay asleep. The featured white noise machine is what I use at home and is the top pick from Wirecutter.
Many kitchen items find themselves on a traditional wedding registry. Having proper cookware in the kitchen is fundamental for good nutrition and wellness. If you already have the cookware you need, or are just looking for something more unique, here are some additional items you might not have thought of before!
Matcha Tea Gift Set
Featured: Matcha Bowl and Whisk Tea Gift Set of 2 From Cost Plus World Market
Matcha green tea has powerful antioxidants that protect cells from free radical damage. Among several health benefits, it supports heart health and brain function. It also provides mental alertness without the jittery feeling found from coffee. A Matcha tea set will give you all the traditional tools you need to have a daily Matcha tea ritual.
Adopt an Olive Oil Tree
Featured: Adopt an Olive Tree Gift Box + Subscription from Food52
Virgin olive oil should be a go-to oil in your home for its omega-3s, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Through this Food52’s Adopt an Oil Tree Subscription, you will never run out of fresh, high-quality extra virgin olive oil! At the same time, you will support farmers in Puglia, Italy. How cool to have your very own oil tree in Italy!
Featured: Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking by Samin Nosrat
Having a few cookbooks in the home will inspire wholesome home-cooked meals. It’s one strategy I recommend for making meal planning easier. Cookbooks can also teach you how to cook, like my pick for your registry: Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. In this book, Samin Nosrat walks you through the pillars of cooking and teaches you how to be a better cook.
Meal Kit Gift Card
Featured: Hello Fresh Gift Card
Meal kit delivery services are a smart way to have fresh, healthy meals even if you are too busy to meal plan or grocery shop yourself. They also help you explore new recipes and become a better cook. Putting meal kit gift cards on your registry will ensure your marriage starts with a series of healthy and convenient meals!
Don’t forget to add fitness items to your wedding registry! Adding exercise equipment or a gym membership to your wedding registry will help you stay fit together!
Cash registries are becoming more and more popular as couples start to value experiences over things. Let your loved ones contribute to your health by gifting you cash towards a gym membership for two! You can create a non-specific gym membership fund or ask for a more specific and fun gym membership like Soul Cycle or a boxing gym.
Featured: Garmin Vívoactive 4S
Tracking your food and fitness is a proven method to stay on track with your health goals. A wearable fitness tracker will help remind you to move and keep you on track with your workouts. Fitness trackers like Garmin look like stylish watches and can do a whole lot more than just track your exercise!
Working out at home makes it easier to get regular exercise. Make sure you can exercise comfortably by having an exercise mat. It provides padding between you and your hard floors, which protects your hips, knees, wrists, and back.
Everyone should own a sustainable water bottle to carry water inside and outside of the home. It will encourage drinking water throughout the day, as well as helping water be handy for your workouts.
Those were my top picks for a healthy home wedding registry! My husband and I also use many of these items in our home! Read about our COVID-19 Wedding Story here.
