My cousin registered for one and was really disappointed she didn’t get it. It was the first thing she bought when she got some cash gifts because she needed one. I don’t think it’s weird. I know I’ve walked in and told a sales person “I need something off their registry for x amount if dollars” and they picked me something.

Most random shower gift: a bowl with a love poem in it with two spoons (meant for cereal). I don’t know what I’ll do with it.

Most random shower gift that I actually asked for: a kitchen scale. Useful, but not something I actually expected someone to buy.

ETA: First thing off the registry – a popcorn popper.

Someone may have bought it to put things into as well.

@AB Bride:  Yup, this is what happened at mine. Someone bought a hamper and filled it to the brim with kitchen and bath items! It was awesome.

Most random gift = a $7 bowl from one of my cheapo BM’s. :/

@AB Bride:  This. I would have purchased a hamper and filled it with little things like all the hand towels you registered for or a personal gift.

My guess is like pp said and the gift giver is filling it with things.

My first gift was a beautiful hand-made wood cutting board I registered for at Macy’s.  I sent my bff her first wedding gift, so the moment my wedding registry went live she sent me mine.  It made me laugh that she picked a cutting board, but I also know we will use it for the next 30 years.  🙂

The first item that went from my registery was the “galvanized party tub” – you fill it with ice and put all your beers in it to keep them cold. Clearly, my friends have their priorities (and ours) in order!

Our first purchased gift was a new Brita Pitcher – lol!

The most random gift we got was a wooden plaque/art that says “My life has a superb cast, but I can’t figure out the plot.” From my step-mother… lol she also gave me a gorgeous tea set from a local potter that I collect, so it was still a good gift 😉

My friend bought me bookends, which I loved, but had everybody in stitches as our initials are S and M.  She was mortified – I personally found it absolutely hilarious!

One of my friends added a fairly expensive wine fridge to her registry at the last minute.  It was the first thing purchased, by a very generous co-worker, of all people.
