Someone gave us this hideous wire bird nest looking bowl thing, it was 2 foot in diameter and it was filled with these twig balls. It was suppose to be some decorative thing for a coffee table or something. It was the ugliest thing we've ever seen, we are both sleek modern people... anyways my mother put this thing in every single garage sale she's had in the last 5 years and it finally sold last month. That thing lasted longer than my marriage...

Haha, I'm just going over to one of my close friends' places to choose a set of towels (they got 17 sets, no joke) so I would say no.

I always enjoyed going to garage sales on the weekend when I had time, and anytime you hit a new subdivision with young couples, you'd see wedding gifts being sold for pennies, just because they didn't want the clutter. I don't think it's rare at all. And I sure as hell wouldn't be offended if my friend sold that butt effing ugly luggage set I got for her (then again, she picked it so she probably doesn't think it's heinous).

I don't think it's wrong. Sell them and buy yourselves something that you really want. Been a few years since you got married so clearly you aren't getting any use out of these gifts.

Can honestly say that everyone followed along with our registry lists. Did get a cake mix and frosting with a cake dish that I had asked for lol.

Try smashing the bottle on his head when he does that again. Might save some glasses!


And I think there'll always be someone who'd love the glasses. I know I would buy them from you since I need to collect stuff for my own house(very distant future though), but yeah, wrong continent!

if only i didn't already have one!

i seriously have every food appliance available already: blender, ice cream maker, bread maker, veggie steamer, two food processors, stand mixer, hand mixer, toaster/toaster oven, i could go on for a while...

i'm sure someone will give us a blender, despite us not putting any stuff we already own on our registry (unless we're trying to upgrade and get something nicer than we already own) and when it happens, hell yes i'm returning it. no sense in having something sitting around and collecting dust. i feel no shame in returning a gift i've been given or regifting if i know someone who'll absolutely love it. if the person gets offended they're missing the reason behind it, i want to be able to have something i really need. if they'd rather me own something they gave me but i don't need instead of returning it for something i do need, then that's just plain weird imo.

Hell no. If it's not what you want. Re-gift, e-bay it or return. As long as the person who gave it is not in the circle.

Well if he's drunk, there's gotta be an empty one lying around!
