shortstop: Yeah, I got so mad when I tried to return this $160 knife set that we didn’t register for (why have a registry if people don’t buy off it????) and they were like “oh, we take 20% off if you don’t have a receipt. And it wasn’t family that we felt comfortable saying “hey, do you have the receipt because we are returning the knives.” So, I was infuriated. Some curse words came out. And I said “I’m going to try to return it at Walmart, they don’t bull this sh*t.” I was one angry customer. So, B,B &B sucks big time!
Whirlwind03: That’s smart!

ucsadie: I used Amazon only – the nice thing is the ability to add items from other websites. And you can put a comment beside whatever you request. So, for instance, when I added gift cards for Sportsman’s Warehouse, people knew that we were going to buy a canoe or kayaks. I’d been living on my own for years and about 3 years with my now-husband. There was very little we truly needed. And you’re right, thinks from BB&B aren’t necessarily exciting. Though I did like replacing kitchen tools that had gotten old and scraped up, even though it wasn’t a big thrill.
Honestly, in the end our best gifts were the ones that were handmade rather than from the registry, but you don’t necessarily see those coming.

You can pretty much make a “registry” on any website with a public wishlist! Make it fun! 😀

We are using MyRegistry.com you can add a widget to your browser and add items from literally ANY online retailer to your registry and evertyhing is all in one place. For the most part we picked stuff from Amazon, William Sonoma, Crate and Barrell, and the MoMA Store because I love cool design stuff
