I couldn’t chose either from that list.  I want everything that you mentioned as well.  Here are some pro/cons of each item and what I would rank them in your circumstances.

Dysons last forever from what I hear, so even if you don’t use it now, you could be using it 20 years in the future.  That said, you will have to move it and store it.  I think that hassle would make it not worth it to me right now. 4

My cousin got a Keurig for their wedding and told me “It is the best gift they got from their wedding.”  I would take that with a grain of salt for your case as you don’t drink coffee like they do, but even having something that can make a cup of hot water quickly is useful. 3

I have an ottoman that you can store blankets in and I love it.  When I use it, it helps keep the living room organized.  I don’t use it 100% of the time, but its still cool. 2

New bedding set would probably be my #1 in your situation.  I think that it is the most useful to you right now, espeically if the other set is not as nice.

Tough call.

My gut says Dyson, as they are expensive and you may not buy one for yourself, even in 3 years when you move. It’s also a single item, so you’re less likely to have someone else buy it off your registry becuase of the cost. If you really want a Dyson (and I’m assuming you do, since you registered for it now) this might be your best chance to get it.

New bedding you’d get good use of now. However, the bedding can be broken down in to several affordable items that others could buy of your registry (sheets, duvet, pillows …) so a lot of that might get bought for your shower anyway.

As this is an offer to buy something big – I’d go Dyson. I have one and they really are the best vaccums ever.

Dyson probably, but the bedding set might be more useful to you right now.

the dyson for sure.  it’s by far the best thing we’ve ever purchased (with our wedding money, btw).  even though you have a small place now, you still have to vacuum it.  it’s a big expense later on so if someone is offering to buy it for you, take it.

the other items are ones that you would buy for yourself or you would probably get as a gift from other guests.

Definitely Dyson!! We have 2, a digital slim cordless and a rollerball upright. I love them.

MrsN14:  The bedding or the vacuum. Honestly, I’d say vacuum. THEY’RE AMAZING. And you WILL use it more in about three years when you move, as you said. And when you move (with all the expenses associated with that) you will thank your lucky stars that you already have a fantastic vacuum.

i’d say the dyson. that’s something that you might never buy yourself due to cost, i think. it’s a big ticket item that you’ll never regret having. i don’t drink coffee and we NEVER use our keurig. ever, even though my husband is a huge coffee drinker. you can always purchase sheets/bedding for yourself and as PP mentioned, those are items people often like to buy for showers so you are likely to get them anyway!

I vote dyson! But anything you registered for was something you want, so you should be happy either way!

I think someone else will definitely gift you the Keurig and the bedding set (those are popular picks from a registry), and the dyson is expensive and will last for years – so no need to sweat that you don’t have much space at the moment – you’ll still use it now.
