I had around 100.. I want to say like 103 on the BRU one and 12 on Amazon or something. We had 1 40 person shower, although 50 or 55 were invited and many who couldn’t come sent gifts. Keep in mind that what someone said on a previous thread (spring babies I think!) was true, most shower guests brought way more than one item. I think on average I’d say they brought 4-5 things, with the exception of the people who bought bigger ticket items. I think we have about 30 or so items left on our registry after the shower.

I haven’t had any sort of shower, but the people who are buying off my registry are buying things in clumps of 4/5 as well.  I guess all the hype is turning out to be true!

I have 43 items on my amazon registry and 40 on my babies r us, I wanted to keep them minimal so that I can be sure to get what I really need as opposed to just stuff I want. 

I did register for a couple toys that I loved, but there were very few non-essential/would be REALLY nice to have items.

 

I expect 20-30 people at my family/friends shower, then my church group is throwing a shower for me as well, which will be another 10-15 ladies. So we’ll see if I get it all or not!

I haven’t made my registry yet, but I just bought gifts for 2 baby showers and usually picked up 3-6 items (depending on cost). I know for me, I like to make a theme gift – all items used at bath time, for example – so I’ll be thinking along those lines when I make my registry. And I always gravitate toward “cute” items, rather than useful, when I buy a gift. So I don’t think I’m going to expect too many “useful items” purchased off my registry and will use the completion bonus to get those.

I have 130 items on my registry and I’m using myregistry.com. A lot, but I started my registry as a placeholder for the things I want/need. There’s a lot of boobie stuff on there I plan to buy for myself. There are about 65 people we are inviting to the shower–of course we don’t expect 65 people to show up! I don’t even know about 20 of the people on the list! (My mom’s friends and some of my husband’s family that I’ve never met).

I might have a small work shower. And there are people who have asked us where we are registered who aren’t invited to the shower, such as hubby’s co-workers and family scattered throughout the country. I don’t think we’ll get everything, but we’ll get most of it. I already purchased 2 items on the list myself 🙂

@regberadaisy: eh I wouldn’t worry about it. I knew keeping it minimal wouldn’t be an issue, because a lot of people in my family (great aunt, grandma, aunt, mom) are all very crafty/sewers/etc and always makes stuff instead of buy things, so I know I won’t get much off the registry from family, just friends. I’m not too worried about getting things I don’t need, as long as I got what I needed and those extras were just extras then it’s not a big deal. Most places you can return them, especially if they were bought with your registry.
