What I mean by this is that my mom wants to make a bridal shower in September and she wants me to make a list of things that guests can get us. Kind of like a registry.
Thing is my FH and I aren’t into registering into mainstream names like Linen Chest, Sears, etc. We just want to make a list of varied items that can generally be bought anywhere from Best Buy to Wal-Mart.
I need to find a website that can host a variety of items availlable in Quebec that has a check off list. Kind of like a real registry works like. So when guests decide to buy a gift they can check it off. If not we might have doubles and triples of certain items…

MyRegistry.com might be good. You can "bookmark" any item from any website and register for more offbeat items.

I checked it out, but it’s only in the states. I’m from Canada. Thanks though.

Can you do an Amazon registry in Canada?

What about setting up a website (if the shower guests are tech savvy) with a list and some way to check off these items. I would suggest making a website with Freewebs or Weebly and then creating a business site. People can "purchase" the items to show that they had actually bought these things and then the items would be removed from your inventory or "registry list."

does wishpot work in canada? Amazon also has a universal wish list that you could use as a registry. Like wishpot you can take items from multiple websites (best buy, wal mart, etc) to create your list.

I just registered to Wishpot. However does everybody have to buy things online? A lot of my family doesn’t like the internet shopping idea.
And everything is American -_-

I have found Wishpot very useful because you can add products from any Web site in the world with a little Wishpot button you install on your browser (it’s listed in ‘Tools’).
Also, even if guests do not want to purchase online, they can mark an item as "Reserved," so that no one else will buy it, and then they can go make their purchase at the store in person. You can even set it so that Reserved items are only visible to ther guests (not to you), if you want to have a few surprises!
I feel like a lot of couples, as you said, aren’t into mainstream registries and would prefer a little variety; so, I actually started a blog all about registering with individual style! It’s at http://www.kireinest.com if you’d like to have a look (kirei nest means "pretty nest").
One last (hopefully helpful!) hint: this article on Etsy offers a lot of registry suggestions! http://www.etsy.com/storque/spotlight/handmade-weddings-registry-ideas-by-designsponge-1402/

Thank you very much kireinpaper for the info. I guess I’ll have to roam around a little more on Wishpot.
