If you’re registering for gifts for a major event like a wedding or a housewarming, consider registering at a landscaping center for plants. Large balled trees, flowering bushes and other landscaping plants can be expensive. But over time, they’ll mature and add beauty to your yard and also help provide a habitat for wild animals. Plus, think of your registered gifts as something that will grow with you over time. And don’t forget: Most nurseries offer a guarantee on plants, so if one or two trees don’t make it, they can be replaced free of charge.
