@stokieGal: I’m curious- in the UK, since you don’t do registries, then do people either naturally give you money, gifts you don’t want, or nothing?

Can your Mom or family spread the word you are saving for a home? That is a subtle way to hint towards cash?

I would register for the things you mentioned that you really want. Then if there are people that prefer to give a gift they can. The best way to get out that you would like money is through your immediate family members. That way when the subject gets brought up the parents can mention money is a better option for you.

@stokieGal: Well, I think that if that’s the case, then it sounds like you will either get a fair amount of money, and of course with the people who ask you should not hesitate to just say you want money. And I think spreading the word through your close friends/parents is a good idea. But I personally think that it is never polite to flat-out ask for money, even if it’s a cute poem.
