It's celebration season and it's killing me. I have had about 4 showers (baby or bridal) and 3 weddings. Anyway I was looking at the registry for my cousin and it doesn't seem like a proper registry to me. I mean, I know they can register for whatever they want but to me, a registry is for things to start your new home with your husband. Their registry had a wii on it and a playstation 3 along with a few appliances, none of which were under $150. On their second registry they were registered for only china that was $47 for 1 plate! Oh and they also had a $300 bedding set and gift cards I can't buy off that registry it's too expensive...I live in Buffalo...we're a depressed area to begin with and now with this recession... So for those who don't buy off the registry, do you have any standard, useful gifts you buy for the bride. I was thinking laundry baskets, kitchen and bath towels, etc...however, if she is particular about what goes in her house...she might not like what i buy. Thanks for listening.
