I put a squatty potty. I wanted something goofy, but I really do want the thing. 

Other then that we were really good about only putting things we need on the list.

A friend of mine put a PlayStation on theirs. They were 20 at the time and had never lived out of home, so I thought it was particularly ridiculous.

A friend of mine put a $300 tandem bicycle! Personally, I think it’s wonderful and fits the couple’s lifestyle and personalities perfectly. A few of us girlfriends are going to get it as a combined gift for the couple.

kc1014 :  This is SO funny. I’m definitely going to pull something like this when it comes time to do our registry!

brereuther :   The most oddball thing I have on there is a a portable AED (automatic defribrilator). I have a recurring nightmare the past 3 months that I am doing CPR on fiance and waiting for the ambulance to arrive. I realize it is irrational; I still want one in the house. Many of my “bad dreams” come true.  For example, last year I dreamed my brother was in a car wreck, and when I woke up, I got a call that he was.  The same year I dreamed my mother was having a heart attack and in the night I got a call she had a heart attack and went in surgery. And little things all the time. Today I took a tray from my boss, because I had a feeling he was going to collide with a person when we turned the corner … and yes, there was someone there, and he walked into my boss and knocked him all the way over. So … I take my bad dreams seriously. No one will buy it for us ($900 USD) but there is a 20% discount for unbought things on the registry. So maybe  I convince him we can get it then.

pawneegoddess :  the best part is that it’s already been marked as “bought”. He was so excited over it lol I’m guessing it was one of his friends or his mom.

I guess the most ridiculous thing on my registry is the kitchen aid pasta making attachment. it’s $200 and the single most expensive item on there. I feel like people will roll their eyes at it, but I actually do make pasta and it would be diggity dope to have that thing.

I think mine is the $250ish portable kitchen island. Our townhouse is a little short on counter space, but we can use it as a bar option or something when we eventually get a house

We put a tent on ours. Didn’t get it. Haha!

Also, just wanted to point out not to judge too harshly if someone puts an expensive or electronic item like a tv on their registry. I know people who have done this not because they actually expect someone to buy it for them,  but because they want the completion discount and plan buy it for themselves at a discount after the wedding.

Kegerator!

It’s the most expensive thing on my registry lol. But my Fiance and I love to entertain, and we’re known for our blow out parties. I hated seeing all the waste at the end of the night, so I thought a kegerator might help our parties become more “green”. Also at our house the recycling only comes every 2 weeks so dealing with all the leftover cans and bottles is just a nightmare!

I’m kinda some of FI’s fraternity brothers might go in on it. Also, maybe our friends who regularly attend our parties, or the bandmates who create so many cans and bottles. Or maybe FI’s crazy inappropriate uncle. I would feel much running the dishwasher full of pint glasses several times then seeing all of the cans.

But it looks very funny on the Registry

Why would anyone roll their eyes at that? I think that’s a great registry item for someone who makes their own pasta!

I guess my item would be a $80 vodka tasting set. BUT, I still have vodka tasting parties once in a while, and I love it.

I had a $330 Le Crueset dutch oven on my registry, we didn’t need a ton (we had just moved in together and my stuff was nearly brand new). I kept joking when we’d look at the registry – “whoever buys the dutch oven, is gonna be my new favorite person!” Then the color I wanted went out of stock on Bed, Bath & Beyond right before wedding so I kinda figured it was for the best, since it kinda felt very extravagant. 

Of course Darling Husband bought the color I wanted right after the wedding from Crate & Barrel! He kept saying “I had to guarantee my rank as your favorite person” Lol… we celebrated our one 1 month anniversary eating chicken & biscuits cooked in it 🙂

the most ridiculous thing was a juicer.  It was so ridiculous that when it arrived we were like “oh shit we don’t actually need this” and we returned it to the store.  We added it because it was one of those suggested things and we were like mm juice.. but honestly we would never have used it.  We used the credit to get something practical off the registry.  I forget precisely what, but probably some plates or a lamp.

My most ridiculous item was a giant clock in the shape of an owl. The person who gave it to me at my shower was like “I saw this on your registry and thought ‘why would any adult want this?’ but anyway, here you go…” like wtf lol? I make no apologies though…the clock hangs in our kitchen and cheers me up every day.
