Personally, I wouldn’t buy anything that was only for one member of the couple.  I know people might say that the man doesn’t care about plates or pans but he does eat off them and make food with them.

I agree – you should buy things for both of you, or at least for your household. Though, I suppose you could argue that plenty of men never use a stand mixer, and that goes on the registry.

But the man gets to eat the stuff you make with the stand mixer!

I think it’s fine if there are gifts strictly for your husband, if there will also be some gifts strictly for you! Like, I’ve registered for a nice tea kettle and my FH doesn’t drink tea. He asked me to register for some wrestlemania dvds…I wish I were kidding. But, I don’t have a problem with it and I seriously doubt anyone else will.

I think that is totally acceptable. I let my fiance put tools and other guy stuff on the registry and I have a few things just for me on there (girly apron for the kitchen, etc.). I think as long as a majority of the items are ones you both can use together, I see nothing wrong with a few individual items for you or him.

tools are ok too !

i don’t think anybody’ll buy the shaver but it doesn’t hurt to throw it on there! I’ts like a toothbrush. I put electric toothbrushes on there =]

I think it’s ok.  We put a showerhead on our registry, for him (even though I obviously shower in the bathroom!).  His friend also said he wants to get us a PS3 – I have no use for a PS3, but I don’t mind as I know full well he won’t be using the coffee maker on our registry!  If a new shaver makes him happy, then you’re happy too!

While I disagree with the idea that cooking stuff is a “female” gft and power tools is a “male” gift, I do think that you can put a blatantly “male” item on your registry.  Lots of the items will be used predminately by one person.  There’s no sin in knowing right off the bat which person that will be!

That being said, I would not put an electric shaver on the registry simply because I think it falls dangerously close to the category of toiletries.  At the very least, it’s a personal beauty supply.  I wouldn’t put a Clarisonic skincare brush on the registry, either.  It just seems a little too “personal item” for my taste.
