@dreamer1288:  If you want more opinions on a previous post you can just “bump” it or post a short request for more opinions.

It is not unusual for couples to  register at places like Home Depot or Lowe’s, so haviing a his and her shower is not the issue.

The issue is you shoudl not be promoting, requesting, or basically hosting a shower for yourselves. If someone wants to host a shower for you, and approaches you for your input, that would be your opportunity to state your preference.

A gift card shower would be incredibly boring to attend, but you would still have to open the gifts and acknowledge them.

@dreamer1288:  We have been to several “couples showers”, so I dont take issue with that. Or the gift card theme, as I guess those are gaining popularity. But like juilies1949 said, make sure YOU are not planning or instructing others on how to plan your shower. If someone comes to you and says “hey, I want to host a shower for you, did you have any ideas in mind?” then I think you could tell them.

You could always host a housewarming party.  If you really want to encourage people to think of Home Depot/Lowes for gifts, you could always mention something on the announcement like “It’s our first house!  Tell us about your favorite home improvement project or inspiration so we can get ideas!”.
