On Good Morning America this morning, on a new segment the have called “The Breakfast Club”, they discussed should people use registries instead of just giving. One of the women said that it was tacky to look at someone’s list and then get the gift. “The spirit of the giving would be compromised.”
I said nearly a year ago, that one does not have to get married, have a baby or have a major birthday to have a registry.
Ultimately, it depends on the person. You can’t tell anyone what to get you for the holidays, but if they’re stumped, at least there’s something to casually point them to.
