    I did – and told him afterwards. Some things he kinda harumphed about. One, in particular, a Metrokane Rabbit Wine Opener Set he thought was pretty silly, but went along with it. Then I received it for the shower. He used it later that week, and was INSTANTLY CONVERTED. He’s super pleased that we have it! *phew* 🙂

    Maybe I’m the minority here, but my fiance has no interest whatsoever in registering! I did it all myself. He likes my taste, I know his taste, and he trusts me not to register for anything he would hate. I don’t even know what I could possibly register for that he’d hate, unless it was something so ridiculous I’d hate it too!

    I mean, he would want some input if we were buying a new mattress or kitchen table or other larger ticket item, but kitchen/bedding/bath stuff? That’s my department!

    renwoman:  My husband was the same way about our registry. Neither one of us cared because we’re in our 30’s with established careers and a household so we really didn’t need anything. What we really wanted was cash but since there wasn’t really any tactful way to ask for that we decided to go with a gift registry.

    At different times we would each add something to it when we felt like it. But we probably should’ve communicated a little better cuz we were registered at 2 different places and we ended up with a couple duplicate gifts haha. 🙂

    I made our registries by myself.  I then drug him to the stores and let him play with the scanner thing for a little bit….then I went home and made sense of the things he added.  We’re both established…we have everything we need so I felt stupid making a registry anyway but I know people would ask if we had one.  He added the most BIZARRE stuff because he’s a man (and he’s goofy)…and couldn’t careless about our registry.


    Also, I do everything house related so how is he supposed to know if we need a new frying pan or new dish towels?  He wouldn’t have a clue!
