My sister is being asked by bridal shower guests what I’d like for my shower. I’m registered for the wedding and I told her anything is fine (either off or on the registries) and that’s apparently not a good enough answer. I guess they feel it’s not ‘personal’.
Any ideas for what I can tell her? My brain does NOT want to figure out what gifts people should be giving me!

Maybe they want to get stuff just for you not for the both of you.

@mishelleez: Yes – I do think that’s what they are looking for…. and that’s what I’m stumped on. I can’t think of a thing. I really just want stuff off the registry (if they don’t have an idea of what to give)…

I would be careful to answer this question beacuse you don’t want to sound greedy.
I would say something maybe like stuff for the honeymoon (toiletry case, luggage, etc). Maybe general household decor stuff or linens? Maybe tell your sister that you guys really need the kitchen stuff on the registry so thats what she should recommend.
Typically I think most shower gifts are for the couple, not necessarily just the bride but it doesn’t really matter.

@caszos:she’s getting the question from an ‘aunt’ like person in my life who can’t attend the shower. My sister told her I’m registered – but she wanted to get me something personal. I told my sister to tell her not to even get me a gift… but she’s insisting and I can’t think of a THING to tell her as an idea. I’m going to go with your suggestion and just say we really need our kitchen stuff… and hopefully that will suffice (we’ve already gone back and forth more than once on email…)

What about a cute little tote bag for your honeymoon that has your new initials or “Mrs NewLastName” on it. Or like another person said a honeymoon gift bag so maybe this tote with cute things in it. You could say lingerie if you arent embarrassed? What about a newlywed cookbook or a cookbook and aprons with your new initials or new name or something on it?

Customized gift with your new last name…I got a “Mrs. Greco” hanger…and a picture frame with Greco spelled out – it’s awesome and we already hung it up! My sister actually got it for me!

Don’t know if this is your style but my sister decided to have a gift theme for my bridal shower. She told everyone to get us something in the ‘entertainment’ catagory. We got some great stuff including beach towels (we live on a lake), movie and dinner nights out, a custom made cd titled ‘Em’s Bridal Shower Music’.
