@K.Obena09:  We were hoping to register at Lowe’s, but the stores in my area discontinued in-store registries.  However, we did receive multiple gift cards though since I had Lowe’s listed as one of the places we registered.  Another place you might want to consider is Sears, since they have appliances.  Many times if you register for something large, your guests will just give you a gift card towards a larger gift.  Good Luck!

Its always a fine line when going the non-registry route. It really depends ! If most people are aware that yall have your own place, then it would probably make sense if you tastefully requested gifts in different forms.

I’m having the same dilemma. We have a furnished house and won’t be in dire need of big ticket items.

Donations in your name to a favorite charity?

Honeymoon fund?

@K.Obena09:  I would just keep your registry of physical items really small — if everything gets bought, people are pretty likely to then just give you gift cards from the stores you registered at, or ask your parents/friends what you want, and then they can spread the word that you’d like gift cards.

@K.Obena09:  I’m not sure about the appliance places, but we registered at Belk and they had a gift card option.  I think it’s a good option if you’re not sure what you want to buy!

@K.Obena09: Gift cards aren’t a bad idea, but you can always upgrade your things depending what stage of life you’re in (more than capable yourself vs poor college student). I would register for good linen sets, definitely good towels, and maybe do some gift cards.
