We finally got around to being able to open all of the gifts that were sent to us. We’re floored by everyone’s generosity. There are a couple of gifts we’re not sure what to do with, so just wondering if anyone has ideas or if there is a typical solution that people take.
We were gifted an entire set of flatware, and an entire set of knives in a knife block. They are pretty good quality.
The only problem with these is that they are both items that duplicate other items that we registered for. We registered for flatware and received a full set. Also, we registered for knives that we spent a good deal of time choosing very carefully, and we only recieved part of that set (I think the family member who bought us the off-registry knife set may have alerted others in the family not to buy us any of the knives we registered for…but maybe that’s just my imagination. Just that, the only people who bought our registered knives were friends and not family).
It appears both of these items probably came from an outlet or something, not any place with obvious labels where it would be returnable.
We’re very thankful that people even bothered to give us gifts! Just not sure what to do from here…
