I really think your best option may be to just register for some additional items.  Are there out of the box type of items you can register for now that the typical stuff has been purchased?

What about camping gear, patio, house stuff, board games, books, movies, etc.

I think that if you don’t register for more stuff, and all that is left is expensive stuff, some guests since they can’t afford anything on the registry will have to guess at a gift in their price range.  You may still end up with tons of stuff that you have to return, or worse are stuck with!

My thought is for you not to worry about it as much. i know that’s easier said than done, but if there are things on your registry that guests can’t afford, they’ll most likely end up getting you a gift card for they they can afford. Either that, or a lot of people go in on gifts together. If you’re not big on trying to add thing to your registry, don’t worry! I think you’ll be plesantly surprised at the number of gift cards you’ll receive!

I don’t think people give gift cards as much at showers as they do at the weddings, since there’s the “gift opening” component to the shower.

I’d register for more items with the intention of returning them and getting the money. :/
