I see that everyone is responding to this as if a registry is only intended for wedding gifts. A registry here is primarily used for a shower, where gifts tend to be closer to the $50ish range, so asking only for $75+ range seems odd, but maybe this varies by region.

I agree with others that are saying these things are definitely high for gifts for a shower. I usually spend around $50 on a shower gift, but we’ll bring anywhere from $150-$300 for a wedding gift. In my region, no one brings gifts to the wedding. You only bring cash/checks.

She never had a shower…nobody to throw her one. She is not a good friend. My Fiance is friends with her future hubby. I still think $75 is a lot. I talked to my friend that is going to and it rubbed her the wrong way too. For someone that is a friend, I spend under $50….for a good friend or close family member $100. Maybe I’m cheap.

I don’t think tacky is the word I would use.
No one is required to give you things off of your registry, if you don’t like the things on there or find them to be too expensive then give cash. I do think it is nice to put different price points on there.
Also many people put tons of stuff on their registry because they want to use the completion discount at the end.
I do not believe the type of wedding one has should dictate how expensive of gifts they should get. I recently had a friend get married at an all inclusive resort. They spent a total of $3000k on the entire wedding since it was all inclusive they had no food or alcohol expenses. They had a very nice wedding but spent very little.
Also $75 IMO is not much for a wedding gift.
