I’ve hit that point in my life where my weekends are becoming filled with friends’ weddings. And it’s not just weddings…it’s bridal showers, engagement parties, bachelorette weekends (this deserves a longer post), which means A LOT of gifts.
Yes, I know everyone registers these days, but is it just me or are registries super boring? And outdated? I don’t think I know anyone getting married that isn’t currently living with their soon-to-be husband or wife, and I’m pretty sure they already have a set of 10 coffee mugs, sheets for their bed, and a frying pan. So do they really need all of this stuff again? And giving a check is just so impersonal.
So since I pride myself on being a friend with good taste, I’ve taken to going off the registry and buying friends elevated home essentials from places like The Line. Maybe it’s not exactly what they asked for, but my hope is that it’s better than what they were expecting???
But seriously, what do you do? How do you deal with all of these wedding presents and registries that don’t make sense?
