I’ve registered at Macy’s and Bed Bath and Beyond and kept prices ranging from $5.00 to $50.00.
I just want to ask anyway: WHAT is typically given at the bridal shower and what PRICES are appropriate.

What is given: Anything that belongs in the kitchen or bathroom, and occasionally lingerie (depending on the style of the shower and whether the bride’s ok with it). Many brides also register for their fine china, crystal stemware, and flatware (12 place settings).
Prices: Most people will probably spend between $20 – $100, depending on how closely they’re related to you. You’ll probably want to add a couple more big-ticket items to your registry in case anyone wants to splurge.
Bed Bath & Beyond has a pretty good checklist below. You only have to register for things you actually want. For example, you don’t HAVE to register for fine china if formal dining just isn’t your style.
