@CakeyP: Have you looked at MyRegistry.com? You can add the tool bar when you set up the account and they have a cash gift option as well if you have a paypal acct. All you have to do is add their tool bar button and if you visit a website and find something you like hit the “add to MRegistry” button and it will automatically be added to your list. This way you can register from BB&B, Target, Home improvement stores, etc…

I currently have an amazon baby registry and I love it! I have added amazon items and items from target, pottery barn (amazing towels by the way) and nordstrom. You can even add a link to your bookmark bar (like Pinterest’s “Pin It”) to register for an item with one click.

Amazon sounds like a good idea for you. Then you can put all the miscellaneous items on there. I have considered it myself.
I don’t agree with where you must register…as in the kind of store. I feel 2 dept stores are fine or 2 smaller stores, etc. Sometimes certain stores only carry what you want & nothing else. This is true for me with my china.
Speaking of towels… JC Penney has great ones. Fantastic quality. I didn’t believe it when someone told me years ago, as I am not a shopper there usually. I still have those towels and I love them. This was almost 10 years ago. ifi I don’t register at JC Penney we will look at Amazon or My Registry & do towels from there.

I have an Amazon registry, and so far I love it! The only downside is that you have to pay to ship items you don’t want back… and some of the individual stores have their own return policy. So pick your items carefully to make sure that if you for some reason don’t like the product that you can afford to ship it back. In my case, so far, the only item that will get returned are a set of sheets that IRL look way different color-wise than what was on the site.
But it really is great!! I’ve registered for all sorts of “unique” items that most big department stores do NOT have… such as… linen sheets, various kitchen electronics, additional sets of our silverware pattern, specific down pillows, a very specific vacuum cleaner, an air filter, a log rack holder…even a composter!!
I also made sure to have instructions of how to “use” the Amazon Universal Registry on my wedding webpage…so that the older crowd could order from it correctly. So far, no problems with it!
