People seemed to like the more unique gifts on ours too. Our first gift purchased (and recieved- they sent it right after Save-The-Date Cards went out so before my shower) was a deep fryer. Also our dutch oven and a super fancy/expensive toaster oven. 

 

My cousin actually complained at my shower that we had too many normal/not fun things. Um… I only registered for what I needed but no one said you CAN’T shop off registry! LOL We got some great personalized/handmade/crazy gifts.

That doesn’t surprise me–I always like to get more “unique” gifts too.  (Ice cream maker; waffle maker; decorative items)

liaeona:  The first was: my $135 electric griddle.

The second was: 1 square pudgie pie maker, 1 circle pudgie pie maker, a cook book for pudgie pies, and a set of pots and pans (specifically for camping).

The third was: my Kitchen-Aid stand mixer!!!!!!!!

I like buying more “fun” gifts off the registry too. They might not be the most practical bit who doesn’t love a waffle maker or spiralizer πŸ™‚

mshoneybeespgbuzz:  this is the circle one, as I mentioned, I already have the square one. You use them (typically) over an open fire while camping πŸ™‚

liaeona:  Yeah I was really surprised when my aunt and uncle bought a $500-$600 kitchen aid. It was kind of an item I put on there and just said: Ill buy it with the 10% completion discount that they offer. I was blown away they spent THAT much money, and I kinda felt bad too tbh. That was one of the first items bought!

Our pots And pans went first. I was shocked because they were the most expensive thing on there. I didn’t even expect to get them at All.

We are not traditional and neither are our friends. So I only registered for formal China to make my Future Sister-In-Law happy. What would know…. all 6 place settings and all the extras were the first to go. Too make it even funnier, Macy’s messed up and allowed to people to buy things after they were completed so I even got doubles! SMH
