I had a question on a similar line…is it okay to register for more ‘one sided’ gifts rather than housewares?

I don’t think it’s inappropriate at all.  It’s still a home item.  It’s not like you are registering for clothes for yourself or something.  People register for way tackier things I am sure.

My friend registered for (and got!) a Wii.  I think it was genius!

I think a jewelry box perfectly acceptable.  Wedding rings are extremely symbolic of a marriage, and jewelry plays a major role in your wedding.  And if someone doesn’t want to buy it for you – they don’t have to.

I don’t think so!! I think it’s fun to see something other than measuring cups and towels on a registry…my friend registered and got a fancy pants dog bed off her registry.

Um honestly, who really cares? Someone is always going to think something is “tacky” because “tacky” can never really be defined. It is an opinion. I say register for what you need and want. If I saw a jewerly box on a registery, I would get it. Specially if it was super cute. Got to have a place to store that ring! I mean a certain person I know registered for $30 dollar Salt and Pepper shakers, I thought that was tacky and it was a houseware item.

Wouldn’t you rather buy someone a gift they are going to use as opposed to another set of china that gets used, what, maybe 5 times a year? I would and I kept that in mind when I registered.

But, take that with a grain of salt. We registered for a pink leather toolbelt with a matching man’s blue leather toolbelt. My fav gift (to expose my true nerdyness) is going to be the complete series of Next Gen on DVD. My sis is getting us that :). It’s your registry – get things you will actually use.

Not to sound old-fashioned but most of the cookware and bakeware we registered for…well that’s all for me.  My Darling Husband doesn’t cook.  So I feel like that’s a one sided gift too.  I just don’t see the big deal, I would keep it on there.

I don’t think this tacky at all…guests will buy what they want at the end of the day anyway….heck some won’t even purchase what you registered for…lol

I don’t think that is inappropriate. I actually think it’s a good idea. Most people register for housewares that they never end up using save a couple times a year. You would use your jewelry box everyday (which makes for something extra special to write in a thank-you note)

I’m with MightySapphire. If you and your Fiance follow stereotpical gender roles, then wouldn’t all that kitchen and linens stuff be one sided?

I’ve seen guys’ registries where the groom went to Home Depot or a hardware store for tools. Why not register for a jewelry box? Just let your Fiance register for a few things he might want (like a deep fryer or a liquor dispenser). I let my Fiance just run around with the gun while I comparision shopped for baking supplies!

I personally think it is inappropriate for a registry.  You should tell your mom, and if people ask her she can get the word out.
