The most expensive thing I registered for was pots at $300, and the least was a pastry blender at about $4. A girlfriend of mine registered for a $400 pewter ice bucket!!! Really?!

@Miss BooBoo: keep in mind a lot of people register for things because the store offers them a discount for remaining items after the wedding- maybe this is what she is doing.

Most expensive:

  1. Travelpro garment bag ($540, but anyone who pays full price for it at Macy’s is getting ripped off)
  2. Breville Cafe Venezia Espresso Machine ($349, on sale for $275, purchased by the couple who recommended it to us Smile )
  3. SodaStream Soda Maker ($200, on sale for $150, and I cannot even communicate how happy my husband was to receive this item)

Least expensive:

  1. Pyrex pie plate ($10)
  2. Washcloths ($12, on sale for $10)
  3. Martha Stewart Trivet ($15, on sale for $10)

@Miss BooBoo: I’m assuming the ice bucket must be multi-functional. Perhaps it also makes diamonds.

Least-

Wooden spoon-3.95

Crate and Barrel glasses-4.95

Salt holder-4.95

 

Most-

Duvet-$230

Stand Mixer- 399.00

Place setting of fine china-$405 (it is also available by the individual piece.)

 

I have no problem with someone registering for high priced items. I try to buy presents early so I can choose something in my price range. If there isn’t much to choose from I will get a gift card at the store they are registered so they can use it toward a higher priced item.

My china is pricey, but it is something we both really wanted, and we already had flatware, silver, casual china, new towels, and many kitchen items. I would rather someone get me just a bread and butter plate from my china than a bunch of things we don’t need.

The funny thing is  we have been given many of the big ticket items, but NONE of the little items-I would love to receive some of those kitchen tools and washcloths.

@redherring: HA! Nice.

@Mrs. Meowerson: Unfortunately, that was not the case. It was a custom made ice bucket- yes I just said that. Of course no one bought it for her. When I asked her about it ( I was her maid of honor) “Honey- who is going to spend $400 on an ice bucket”, her response was, “Eh”. I have to tell you, I respected that answer.

I like the theory that people will buy parts of sets if that’s what they can afford, and I never think that it’s a bad thing to see a few high end items, because sometimes aunts and uncles and cousins go in on a high ticket item!

Ok- I didn’t bring up the ice bucket because I think it’s bad to register for high priced items, I wrote it to be funny. If someone wants to register for a $10,000 meat tenderizer, more power to them! I wasn’t trying to offend anyone. It was just meant to be a funny little story.

Don’t want you gals to think I’m being judgemental, cause I’m not. I’m having a destination wedding for crying out loud- haha! I bet I have quite a few family members who’d like to buy me a $400 ice bucket rather than follow us to the Dominican!

We had a lot of guests buy the high priced items. I really wasn’t expecting it but i had them on there to get the discount and buy them with some of our cash gifts. It was really exciting to get them but i felt like people out did themselves. 

Most (and we got them all except the chaise lounge)

Le creuset cookware set $600

Rug from Pottery Barn $700

Bed from pottery Barn $700

Chaise Lounge $500 

Least

Quite a few Random kitchen utensils that were mostly under $10

Oh… I just thought that I should probably add that at least for me… when I see low priced kitchen stuff then I don’t tend to think that you need exactly what you registered for… exactly… so if you register for a boring white spatula, then I might get you a cute clear one with hearts!  (I tend to buy the little stuff to go with something bigger.  So if you asked for a pizza cutter and a pizza pan, then it’s likely that I’ll get both items, but if it’s just a random wooden spoon and nothing that matches it…  then I’ll think … you can buy that yourself… I’m going to get you some towels!  So if you registered for little kitchen stuff and appliances… make sure that you have some things that the little stuff can go with…

Our two most expensive: a Roomba and a Kitchen Aid mixer. Least expensive? A scrubbrush and napkins.

 

I would rather go in on a big gift with friends, personally. We tried to include a lot of things in the $50 – $100 range, since that is what we usually spend when we buy individually.
