A reluctant convert
In fact, he had to talk me into us creating wedding registries (I refuse to call them bridal registries since we both got married). He pointed out that people would probably want to buy us gifts and they'd probably prefer to get us things we actually wanted. So I went along with it and we created one at William-Sonoma and one at Pier One. Neither were large or contained extravagant gifts but to my shock, everything on both lists was bought. Everything.
This year, I was behind in Christmas shopping and I resorted to using Amazon wish lists for folks on our gift list. I felt like I was cheating, but the recipients sure seemed to like their gifts. Well they did pick them out.
What do you think? Are wish lists good? Bad? Am I silly to feel like I ought to know what someone wants if in fact I'm close enough to them to want to buy them gifts?
Yes, that picture is a wish list of mine. It's for our new little yellow house if you must know and mostly it's so we remember what we want to get in the rush to get moved in.
