I was planning on registering at the typical places… Crate & Barrel, Macy’s, BBB. But, FI mentioned that he’d like a drill, tools, wet/dry vac. I feel like registries/showers are usually for the girly home goods things.
So my question is, did you guys do a guy themed store too?

We registered at BB&B and Target. But I let him pick some boy things out at Target.

We did not register at a hardware store. We talked about it, but there wasn’t really anything we needed (we already have a lot of tools).

We didn’t do a guy themed store. We were registering at Target already, so we took a trip over to the tools and automotive dept.

We’re doing Target and Bed, Bath, and Beyond. He mentioned wanting a boy-ish store, but I pointed out that he used to have a construction company and has a zillion tools. Instead, I let him wander over to the camping and electronics sections in Target. 🙂

I let him register at Sears for tools. We had a couples shower so all of his guy friends bought him tools and the girls bought me kitchen stuff. Worked out really well–he was happy, I was happy, and we didn’t end up with BB&B giftcards which is what the boys would have bought if left to their own device. Plus a lot of the tools he registered for (and received) were fairly pricy (like a $115 circular saw) and I’d rather have someone buy it for us now than end up with another fancy kitchen gadget that will sit collecting dust!

We registered at BB&B and Target. Included on the Target registry were lot of tools, board games, yard games, a tent, sleeping bags, etc. You can definitely get a lot of good “dude” things at Target!

DH is the cook between the two of us – so his ‘tools’ were our knives, pots/pans, and kitchen gadgets! 🙂
Amazon might be a good idea for you! Tons of options!

We did Macys/Crate & Barrel but my FI loooooves to cook so he got to pick plenty of items for himself.

Sears. It had everything you both could want.

We are registered at an alternative registry because I knew that I wanted to register for things at different stores and some really nontraditional things. It is great. Our guests go there and see an entire list and the site takes them right to the page to buy the item.
It also lets you add offline items. For instance there is a store near us that I really love and want a few things from but they don’t have a website, but I can add the items as offline gifts.
Also it allows you to ask for money if you want. It gets linked to a paypal account. We are asking for money for our house and for our honeymoon. It is really nice. I would recommend it to everyone.
it is http://www.myregistry.com. We have found that it is really easy to use for us and our guests. Our registry is now exactly what we want to recieve and not limited by the store and what they carry.

We’re horrible when it comes to registering. I set one up at Macys and then we did My Registry which lets you pick items from any store you wish. Although, I’ve gotten on and added items, FI has not added items except for a Home Depot gift card.

We are going to register at Sears for this reason. I don’t think it’s fair to have all girly stuff.

We registered at amazon.com, because it has everything. I don’t think there’s anything on there that we don’t both want though.
