I’d go for a gift card, probably. Target ha.

Up to you, I’d find either acceptable.  If they registered for a lot of stuff there, they like to shop there.  I’d have been thrilled with a bunch of Bed, Bath & Beyond gift cards – but then again, my registry wasn’t totally bought out, either.

I’d do cash.  If that is all that was on their registry that is probably all they wanted from that store.

Can’t go wrong with cash. But question: are you buying for a shower or just a wedding gift?

I think either would be fine.  Granted everything they registered for has been purchased, but that doesn’t mean that they won’t find they need something else or decide they’d like to upgrade something they hadn’t registered for.  I’d suggest doing whichever you feel most comfortable with.

I’d probaby go cash. Although, we’re registering at Williams-Sonoma in the hopes that we get not just the gifts, but also gift cards to that specific store. Our logic is that there’s always something expensive we want from there…

@MrsMaskatoBe:  What would you prefer? I would prefer cash.  So would my Fiance.

@MrsMaskatoBe:  Cash would be my preference. If everything I wanted on the registry had been purchased, I don’t necessarily want anything else from that store.

@MrsMaskatoBe:  what about a gift card to macy’s instead? there’s so much at macy’s that they might want later on (maybe some clothes for their honeymoon!). williams sonoma has some seasonal stuff and they might find something they want once fall comes around. i think a gift card to either store would be fine.

If it’s a shower gift, then I’d get a gift card. If it’s the wedding gift, go with cash.

My fiance and I have lived together for a long time and don’t need much, except for a downpayment for a house! We put together a small registry to upgrade some of the items we have so that people will have items to buy for the shower. After that point, cash would be the most useful gift for us.

I’d say cash – it’s much more useful and there’s only so much you can buy at those other stores.  If they got everything they registered for, there’s a good chance that they got all they wanted.

 

I have never been to a wedding where anyone brings actual gifts to the wedding itself. Maybe it’s regional, but we all typically think of actual gifts for the shower only.

I personally would do cash as well. As PP mentioned, they may have literally registered for everything that they need and any additional GCs may not get used right away. Both WS and Macy’s have options to register for GCs so if that option isn’t available, the couple may not want them.
