I’ve talked before about how much I wish I could go back in time and change our wedding registry. We got so (SO) many beautiful things and our families and friends were falling over themselves to treat us to all the things we wanted for our new home and we registered for the weirdest stuff! For example, we registered for the traditional we’re-getting-married-dishes and now we have this 8 piece set with big plates and little plates and bowls and coffee cups and it’s all so nice that we cannot use them. Every time we bring them out for special occasions, something gets chipped. Also, we have never fed 8 people in our home at one time unless it involved paper plates and boxes of pizza.
And camping gear! We registered for camping gear! We, the Morgans, who don’t even like to be out in the backyard that much. We have known each other since 2002 and in that time neither of us has ever gone camping with anyone, but now we have matching camping gear. And a fondue pot. And deluxe Scrabble on a rotating board. And a splatter-proof cookbook holder for all those times we’re in the kitchen and things are so out of control that we can neither hold the cookbook nor keep it out of splatter range.
Anyway, if you’re not us and you still have time to save your wedding registry, I wanted to remind you that you can register at Best Buy. They have all the stuff you really want and the registry system makes group gift giving easy by letting people contribute toward the same item, so you no longer have to feel bad about asking for the really expensive things grandma can’t afford on her own.
I even put together a little shopping inspiration board with things you can register for to help you bring the Disney magic as you start married life:
1 /// GoPro – HERO4 Silver Action Camera: We just got one of these for this last mini-WDW trip and I am so kicking myself for not getting one for our longer trip with the kids. It’s easy and fun to use and there are all sorts of accessories you can buy to fit your idea of adventure. Take this with you on your wedding/honeymoon trip and you can go home and relive it with hours of memories!
2 /// Xbox One Console with Kinect and Disney Infinity: This game is very, very popular and for good reason! I think it’s the best video game Disney has ever come out with and the sneak peeks I’ve gotten at the next version (coming out soon!) make me think it’s about to get even better.
3 /// instax mini 8 Instant Film Camera: I bought one of these last summer and it’s been a treat to capture “real” snapshots at events. Fun tip: if you bring this camera with you to the parks, you can snap a pic with characters and have them autograph it on the spot!
4 /// Classic Mickey Waffle Maker: Anyone can make Mickey-shaped pancakes, but DIY Mickey waffles call for this little beauty.
5 /// VIZIO 40″LED Smart HDTV and The Little Mermaid: This is a good time to pump up the home entertainment system and fill in any gaps in your DVD collection, especially since many come with digital versions of the movie now!
6 /// SONOS Wireless Speaker for Streaming Music: If you aren’t familiar with SONOS, you really need to check this out. We got a hub and two speakers last summer and I was a little lukewarm about them since we have a small house and we already had a record player we could plug our iPods into. No. This thing rules. It’s insanely easy to set up and the sound quality is phenomenal. Since we control it via our smartphones, we can adjust the volume as we move from room to room (or sync it up to move with us) and now we can stream online stations so we can actually fill the house with Disney park area music when we’re just hanging out. These speakers are directly responsible for the fact that our kids know all the words to the classic Disney songs. We heart them pretty hard.
7 /// iPad mini 3: While you’re at it, grab a tablet so you can plan your 1st anniversary Disney vacation and keep up with your favorite Disney blogs. *cough* Like this one. *cough*
