My Fiance and I bought a house together last May, so we’re pretty well stocked on things we need. Granted, our plates are hand me downs from his mom, and aren’t fantastic, but we also couldn’t care less about plates. What we do need are things like light socket covers, light fixtures, new door knows, even lumber! Is this really silly to register at Home Depot? Otherwise I’d rather just not register and get cash.

I tried 🙁 they said they no longer had a wedding registry.
Give HomeDept a call to see if they are offering one in yor area.

I don’t think it’s silly at all… to me, it’s better than registering for a shiny new $350 mixer b/c it matches your kitchen paint color 😉 I think people would be just as happy to buy you gift cards to home depot as they would at Macys. Go for it!

I’ve heard and seen from other posts that the Home Depot registry process is a little difficult. I don’t know from experience…can anyone confirm this?

No – I think it’s practical. And fun!!

I don’t think so at all. You want gifts you can actually use, otherwise its pointless. And people just want to buy you something that will be helpful. I think its a good idea.

OH that’s a bummer, b/c I was going to say that’s fine. Well if they don’t have a registry, maybe your BMs can throw some kind of home improvement shower for you. (I’ll bet you can find places to register that have those things. (You can probably find some stuff at Target or BB&B). And if all else fails, maybe they’ll give you gift cards.

I don’t think it’s silly. Just make sure you’re not registering for insanely priced items at Home Depot that your guests wouldn’t want to buy. Other than that I think it would be fine. You can also always go with the 2 store route that way you can get new plates too!

As a cashier in a home improvement big box store not unlike Home Depot 😉 I have to say I think it’s brilliant. One of the most common things I hear at the register is “Wow, that added up fast” or “I can’t believe I am spending this much” because while a light socket cover might be only $0.98, that adds up quickly when you have a few in every room! I think the point of registering for anything at any store is to help guide gift buyers to things you would like. If you’d like new doorknobs, why NOT register at Home Depot? It also seems that maybe they do the registry online as opposed to in store, but I don’t see why people couldn’t actually by things in store if they see them on your registry.

Well… Im a manager at Home Depot and what I can tell you is that we do not offer a registry but what you can do is just request gift cards. We get lots of newlyweds coming in with hundreds of gift cards. It’s especially common in those who get married after just buying a house, for remoldeling. 🙂 Good luck.

it wouldnt be ridiculous. maybe a store like the home depot does have a registry like Lowes?

I would suggest saying Home Depot is not offering a registry but this are items we have found that we need from there. I guess kinda make your own for your mother or moh to have to tell people about.

I think it might be easier to say we are registered for home depot gift cards or something like that. You can wrap/ship a kitchenaid mixer… home improvement items, maybe not so much.
BUT I think this is one gift card people would be like “OH THATS SO SMART” and happy to buy for you. It’s obviously going towards building your home equity!!!!

Are you comfortable with doing a online registry?
You can create a online registry via MyRegistry and add items from Home Depot onto it. Guest can then go purchase items at Home Depot -online or retail- then come back to your MyRegistry and mark it as purchased.
It’s a couple extra steps, but if it’s what you really want.
And no, it’s not ridiculous at all! We’re pretty much at the point where we have done as much as we can on our house to not exceed what we spend vs max resale value. And the Fiance has more than enough tools. But we did register for a Weber Kettle Grill and Aluminum Wicker Patio set from HD!

I don’t think it’s silly. I know if we could have registered there we for sure would have!
