This is the last thing you need to be dealing with!  It’s nice they want to get you a nice gift that you want but they should put some thought and effort into it themselves.  Honestly.. I would just send him a link to your registry and say something like “You are so sweet to ask.. really anything off the registry will be greatly appreciated!”

Well, if you think it should be his task to figure out what to get you then just tell him that you don’t think you would use a Wii, but that anything they want to give would be wonderful.  Or, just tell him to get something off the registry.

I actually think it is really nice that he asked you what you wanted. 🙂

I would just link to the registry (it sounds like you have one)! He can pick out his own gift, although it is nice he asked 🙂

I agree with pointing him in the direction of a gift registry if you have one. If not, think of a big ticket item you want (kitchenaid mixer, washer and dryer set, dyson vacuum, etc.). Or tell them cash will do!

I personally don’t like giving cash to my friends. It feels weird to me. I would just direct them to the registry.

Refer him to the registry (update it with a couple of big ticket items if you’d like). If not ask your groom to figure something out and to run it by you before telling his best man.

Refer him to the registry and make some kind of comment like “Some people choose to give us cash and that is okay too” So you are sort of saying either something from the registry or cash. I’ll bet you get the cash!
