Amazon.com!  As long as your guests won’t mind not being able to go to a brick-and-mortar store to browse for wedding gifts, I think it’s the best option out there.

My only issue with places like Amazon.com are that your guests are forced to order online, and then pay for shipping. I know I try to avoid spending that extra money if possible. Also, older guests tend to like to go to the store b/c it’s just hard for them to do it online.

Target has a lot of the stuff you seem to want. We registered for camping stuff there, and they have some furniture.

So, I haven’t used this but I did get this site in an email just last week – GiftRegistry360.com 

It combines multiple different stores together but it may still not be everything you’re looking for.

Most things on Amazon.com come with free shipping (Super Saver SHipping on things over $25) so that really isn’t an issue. If you want a universal registry, you’ll really need to deal with things being online as the tradeoff. We did the Amazon.com registry, and it went over really well.

Myregistry.com also offers universal registry services and synchs with other stores such as Macys, Williams-Sonoma, Amazon etc. (I have not used it yet myself, just checked it out)

@vanaynay23: Considering the hefty price tag attached to some of the things you put on your list… maybe a less traditional registry would suit your needs better. I forgot which website it is, but it functions like a registry – only that you name how much money you want and for what you want to use it. Like a down-payment on a house, or a new haircut for your guy etc. People can contribute as much or little as they want to.

I’m using MyRegistry.com too and loving it so far! I already had started a Target registry but it let me sync them so now everything is all together AND my guests can still buy in-store and not have to worry about online shopping/shipping costs. I’m also using it to register for our honeymoon because they have a cash gift option. Loving it so far!

We did a Crate & Barrel and a Kohl’s registry to cover our bases!  Strangely though, 11 things are already gone from the Crate & Barrel and nothing went from Kohl’s as of yet. 

One of my friends did an Amazon registry, and their only miff was having to pay shipping to send anything back that they didn’t want/got duplicates of.  Otherwise, they loved it!
