I WOULD HAVE FREAKIN’ LOVED THIS IDEA. I didn’t really know this was a thing. Instead of gifting stuff off the registries, guests are asked to bring “date night” gifts–which could be anything and be whatever you can afford as long as it is something the couple can use as a date.
Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate all of the gifts I got from my shower, but I felt SO awkward opening gifts that I had basically pre-selected. I felt like a greedy SOB, but it is the cultural expectation in my area to have a registry, so I am sure no one ELSE felt that way, but I did.
Anyway, just passing on the information in case anyone was in search of a great shower idea! Now I can’t wait for one of my other friends to get married so I can do this for them! LOVE the idea.
