We registered at Macy’s and Crate & Barrel.  Our families/friends are pretty traditional and I knew they’d want to buy use stuff for our homes.  I like the idea of the honeymoon registry but I just knew our peeps would not be excited to just give money for shower gifts. 

Have you thought about registering somewhere like Home Depot?  You can get tools, garden stuff, etc. there.  Also, a place like Target offers a little everything, including entertainment options like games, electronics, etc. 

Like you, we already have everything we need, but I was happy to register for new items as our stuff was cheap to start with and now is old and tired looking.  🙂  I’m excited about fresh, new dishes, new towels & bedding and new kitchen tools that aren’t so sad and warped from the dishwasher!!!  I plan on donating our old stuff so that they can continue to be useful to someone.

We did a Macys (for people who need to walk into a store!) and MyRegistry.

MyRegistry is a universal online registry. With a simple button on our browser I can add items from any website. I can even add items from local retail stores.

We’re in the same boat as you, been living together and have a lot of what we need. We love to cook, cook practically every night but all our pots and pans are hand me downs and Walmart crap. So that was something we registered. Nice bed set that we would never buy for ourselves. A nice dinnerware set. Again would never spend the dough on ourselves. Patio furniture from Home Depot. Cool gadgets we can use for our honeymoon and beyond. Etc.

We registered at Macy’s and Bed, Bath and Beyond. We also have most of the things we need, but Im looking forward to new things, some perhaps that we wouldnt have purchased ourselves. And finally things that will match! yay! 🙂

We did Bed Bath and Beyond (even though registering in the store was one of the most annoying experiences ever), Crate & Barrel, and Sur la Table. We have a lot of stuff too but wanted to upgrade and also wanted to scoop up some specialty cookware since we have the chance now. But you can register practically anywhere if you aren’t psyched about more housewares or honeymoon stuff–I know you can register at REI, for example; one couple I heard of registered for a kayak there and someone actually got it for them which is awesome! Or you can register online at Amazon, they have everything.

 We did myregistry.com so we wouldn’t have a million different registries at different stores, and there’s an option for people to give money if they would rather! We love it.

@peachesandtuips!
Us too! Laughing

Fiance told me to take off the cash gfit. Hehe. But the “give this gift as cash” option is still on.

Do you find it a tad glitchy on some sites? Overstock is really weird for me.

We registered at Crate and Barrel, Target and Williams SOnoma – while we have been living together for a few years now, a lot of stuff we have is hand me downs or we don’t have complete sets of things because things have broken or we have just found over time that we need more of something. This is also our time to upgrade what we do have such as instead of our current toaster we registered for a toaster oven. We also put some fun things we really want on there such as a Wii, a bluray player, a camera tripod, a popsicle maker, luggage, etc.

We registered at Bed Bath and Beyond and Crate and Barrel. We have been living together for almost two years and have most things that we need. That said, almost all of our stuff is hand me downs, or cheap so I am looking forward to receiving some of the things we registered for! I will love having matching dishes and a food processor for example!

We’re registering at Williams Sonoma, Pottery Barn, and Target. I really wanted to do Sur La Table but I thought a) 4 places would be too  much b) Sur La Table gets expensive and c) they’re not as widespread at the other stores.

I love love love love to cook, so I already have a lot of things (Kitchen Aid Artisan stand mixer, etc) and will mostly be upgrading. Plus, we live together, so we’ve invested in a lot of those things that you traditionally register for. 

I’m a little worried that people are going to judge what we register for. Everyone keeps telling me to “just upgrade!” but unfortunately beyond some pots and pans and new dinnerware, we don’t really have anything to upgrade. We’re total bargain hunters and bought our KitchenAid on Craigslist, etc, but always buy quality so it lasts!
