Registering for wedding gifts can be a lot of fun, but it can also be overwhelming. (Sheets聽and dishes and small appliances, oh my!) How do you even know where to begin? Wayfair聽thinks you should start聽with your profession.聽The home e-tailer聽released a guide that helps couples pick the perfect wedding gifts based on聽what they do for a living鈥 and it actually makes a lot of sense.

鈥淲e鈥檙e in the midst of peak engagement season, so we felt it鈥檚 important to provide advice to newly engaged couples who are preparing to create a registry,鈥 says Julie Casssetina, an editor from Wayfair Registry.

For example, if you or your boo is a school teacher, the guide suggests items to help create a quiet space at home: 鈥淭o create an at-home work聽station that fosters productivity, teachers should consider registering for a new writing desk, trendy聽lamp for mood lighting, and a desktop caddy to stay organized.鈥

Work with customers all day? Think cozy and calming. 鈥淔or hours on end, customer service representatives are dedicated to ensuring everyone has a stellar experience; but let鈥檚 face it, occasionally, service providers encounter an unhappy customer,鈥 the guide states. 鈥淭o unwind after the day, nearly-weds might consider registering for products like an aromatherapy diffuser and bedroom basics like pillows and cozy comforters.鈥
