Ok, so we recently got a package with a collection of a few small things as a wedding gift from one of FI’s family friends. It contained 4 small things off the registry, plus 2 items that we did not register for. The first was an alarm clock…ok, I guess they thought an alarm clock was an essential we would need but might have forgotten to register for (we have one already, but nice thought). But the other thing….was a dog leash. We don’t own any pets. And they know that! It’s also not just any dog leash–it has a built in flashlight and place for holding extra bags to pick up poop with. I figured if you were going off-registry you’d try to get something meaningful or something you believe is an essential or something important? They had bought enough for free-shipping already so it wasn’t that. I TOTALLY appreciate the thought of it all and that they even sent a gift, but I’m still just a bit confused by this one lol.
What’s the oddest gift you’ve received for the wedding?

One of my friends got us a mango slicer. I don’t know if you’ve seen one before but it totally looks like lady parts… 😀 lol

How strange. I would totally be wondering if that was meant for me and maybe specifically mention in your thank you card that you thought it was neat and will put ot away until you get a dog just to see if it gets a response.
Ive mentioned a few times that we got a bride and groom cake topper after our wedding. I think they may have thought it was a figurine but nope it has a stake so it doesn’t just stand up on its own.

haha, at least it sounds like a really awesome dog leash! that is strange.
*Baring in mind there may be cultural differences here, but it was still strange to me*
This was not a wedding gift, it was an engagement gift, but a friend of my grandmothers sent us a cyote pelt that still has a head and feet! Its really creepy, my cats love curling up on it, I just can’t stand to look at the face. My mother is curently in the process of talking that same friend out of sending us a coon hound for our wedding, like a live one.)

I got a triple crockpot. Literally.. A contraption that will take up an entire counter that has three attacked crockpots. Of course, I specifically didn’t register for a crockpot since my mom gave us an extra that she had.
