Why can’t you just say, “Thank you for the thoughtful gift!  We are so happy you could join us at our wedding and celebrate our marriage” blah blah?  IMO, there is no reason to be totally honest…  It will only create hurt feelings.  They obviously put thought into the gift and it would be rude for you to tell them you don’t have any use for it.

If you feel like you are “lying through your teeth,” you don’t have to be over the top and gush about how much you LOVE the vacuum or anything.  But you should acknowledge their thoughtfulness.

@Ms Bookworm:  agreed.

you ARE thanking them for their gift, correct? then do just that. Say thank you and move on to the next one. If someone gave you a birthday gift you didn’t have use for, would you say thanks but I don’t need this…/ it isnt what I asked for? Wedding gifts are no different. Registries are just guidelines that guests may or may not use when buying your wedding gift.

Actually, once you’re out of the condo that will be a pretty awesome gift. We’re in a small townhome and have had ours come in hand frequently for home projects, and also (hopefully this will not ever happen to you) for leaks/floods. So make sure you snag it back if you move!

Well you can send it to me, we have two and I would LOVE a third. One bounces between the garage and the basement and the other is in the cat sanctuary’s house. I would really really love another one. Probably one of the most useful gifts on the planet for sucking up stuff that I would never let my Kirby vacuum near.

W/D vacs are awesome!  

You could say that you were pleasantly surprised at such a thoughtful gift, and are excited to put it to good use!  

 

***Which, maybe you were not initially excited, but hopefully with our growing encouragement, you will be!  These are awesome for anything – spills, floods, the corners that a regular vac just doesn’t seem to be powerful enough.  You can also put an attachment & flip it in reverse and use it to dry your dog (this works, trust!).  Please don’t sent it away just yet!!!
