Not to worry, I usually give cash, gift card, or buy the day before or the day of.  I think that things have been so crazy with the holidays people are just waiting.

@Evie19: LOL, yes most of the rest of the world are giant procrastinators like me.  I am well known for stopping on my way to the shower and grabbing a gift card.  In my defense, I am usually putting together desserts to take with me and I just can’t do anything simple, no I have to show off.  My Bad.

I’m a super procrastinator and usually don’t get the gift until the week of the shower… usually within a few days of it! I wouldn’t worry QUITE yet πŸ™‚

Yup! The majority of my gifts were bought a day or two before the shower! Also, a few weren’t bought off the registry, and a couple more weren’t taken off the registry. Its inevitable that some people will not buy off the registry. Just gotta hope that they’re something you will like and use…

I was a registry stalker as well… couldn’t help it! Still got some surprises, including a wall decoration in a shape of a violin w/ music notes from my great-grandfather. By far, the most meaningful gift as he and other family members played, and so does FI!

Most of my shower gifts were outside of my registry.  Don’t worry, you’ll start to get a crazy amount of gifts soon!!

Yes, most people do wait I think.  10 days still include a full weekend.  A lot of things will probably get purchsed by end of this weekend.

Don’t worry some people might leave it to the last minute or you might get G.C’s!!  I received alot of G.C as I didn’t have alot of items on my registry around the 50 dollar mark.

I’ve been a bridesmaid often enough to be able to say for sure that people wait until the last second to buy gifts for showers. I know this because I’m usually in charge of bridal bingo, which I base on the actual gifts that have been purchased off the registry to make it more interesting. So countless times I’ve been up until 1am the night before a shower because people waited until then to finally go buy a present.
