Many times if someone purchases something on your registry along with their own personal items, it will show up on your registry. For example, they could have bought you a blender and themselves dryer balls and bag clips. When they went to pay for the items and had your registry scanned to say they purchased your blender all three items scanned to your registry.

It sucks but I’ve heard it happens at a lot of stores.

I’m not sure but sometimes if people buy something else (for themselves) when they purchase something from your registry it gets added on there. It’s happened a few times to us.

It happened to ours….they basically scan everything in someone’s purchase and it automatically adds it to your registry…whether its intended for you or not

this just totally cracked me up–and i needed a laugh today! next time i’m buying a registry gift i will think twice about what else i buy at the same time.

I checked out BB&B registry yesterday and someone bought us our crockpot….and also measuring spoons, a scrub brush and nose hair trimmers….none of them on the registry. I figured they were personal items as we certainly didn’t request a nose hair trimmer.


My shower is this Saturday. If I get my crock pot this weekend…I will know who has the nicely trimmed nose hairs 🙂

Yikes! Is there any way of removing these rogue purchases so the rest of your guests don’t see?

Yeah I’ve seen this alot.  If I ever am in this situation I’ll make sure to ask for 2 separate transactions just incase!

I’ve also had this happen on our registry! Someone bought themselves a tank top, and a card at the store for us, and they both appeared on our registry! Too funny…

This happened to us too! I enjoyed trying to figure out who purchased the random items. On the gift receipt there was the extra line.
