@sofialovesmikey:  

Did her SO register for her?

With all the electronics and game consoles it sure sounds like he did!

@sofialovesmikey:  That’s an obnoxious registry. I don’t even know what to say besides that.

I had a co-worker have on her registry nothing under $75 she had plates that were $80 per plate!!! I was like “oh no no no!” lol.

just get a gift card to the place they registered. it’s the eaisest thing, and that’s probably what they want the most of!

@sofialovesmikey:  Sometimes the companies where you register give you a discount on the items “left over” on your registry that people didn’t buy. Perhaps they are planning to buy the big ticket items on their own at a discounted rate. That’s the only explanation that I have. Otherwise they are just rude, lol.

That’s pretty funny. She’s milking that registry for all it’s worth, no matter how silly it makes her look, apparently. 

I wouldn’t get her anything off of the registry. A card and some money is all she would get from me.

@gigglebox:  That’s fabulous advice. It’s really simple, but I did not think of that right away!

OP, that’s remarkable! Perhaps she let her FI do the registry? Wink

@MrsPanda99:  Yeah, this is what we’re doing, BUT we’re only putting a couple of things like that on it, most will be under 100,as we don’t want to look too obnoxious lol.

@gigglebox:  Gift cards are a great idea (if the OP isn’t completely put off by the registry and not wanting to attend anymore). The the demanding couple can collect gift cards and buy their big ticket items that way.

@lemiller:  

I aint buying nobody an ebox or a straightener! LOL. wedding showers i think home/kitchen stuff not gaming or hair products (of any type, straightening or removing)
I can get a gift card and assume they will use it on something they need; and if it goes toward an xbox then so be it… i would love to go to the shower and see what they really get! LOL

In this day and age lots of people have established kitchens when they marry.  Thus the china and silverware has been replaced with other things they think are nice to have.  iPads actually can be very essential in a couple’s life.  They can FaceTime distant relatives using them.

It does sound like most silly things came from the guy being trigger-happy, so don’t hold it against her.  The TV seasons seem dumb, but they too could be a fun shared experience for the couple.

I think it’s just different tastes.  If stuff seems too expensive, I agree, get them a gift card. Lots of people put stuff on their registries that they think is too frivolous to buy on their own.  It’s a one-time opportunity to acquire a few luxury items.  Since it’s gifts, I’d let them have it.
