I’m a new (waiting) bee and I’m curious to learn about this universal registry thing. Sounds fabulous!

A friend of mine did this, great idea.  I’m trying to think of some stuff she had on there…  I remember a digital picture frame, a board game, storage containers (which would probably work for you guys too since you’re moving).  I can’t remember the rest but I’ll edit when I can!

We set up a registry with myregistry.com. We’ve already lived together for a year and don’t really need any housewares.

Some of the things we’re registered for are:

A record player & record player media table
Coasters that are handpainted with our favorite movie directors
Original Etsy-fab artwoork
The Joy of Cookign & Mastering the Art of French Cooking
Customary pink Kitchenaid mixer

I love the idea of adding a couple of bottles of wine to our registry, yumo!

We have an Amazon registry.  So far, on the ‘universal’ part, we have 2 IKEA bookcases, one of the IKEA Poang chairs and footstool, a towel warmer from BB&B (for some reason $20 cheaper than the same one at Amazon), and thanks to your post, two of our favorite wines.  (Hey, if someone wants to buy us a case, who are we to frustrate them? hehe.)

I used honeyfund, which at first was just for honeymoon items but we quickly expanded it to include anything we needed! We also split a lot of the big items so that people could contribute smaller amounts. Specifically some “universal” items included:

  • Husky 123 pc toolkit
  • Honeymoon stuff (flight, dinner, jet ski, lagoon tours, 4×4 excursions) – we went to Bora Bora
  • HDTV!
  • We considered putting a DSLR camera on our list, but we decided not to get one in the end
  • Playstation 3

We have put things like gift cards to our favorite places locally, a few housewares, a flat screen TV, board games, etc.  We are using alternativegiftregistry.org.

We liked gift cards because it ment that friends who wanted to give a gift but could give it in any denomination that they could afford.
