Peeking at Registry

Are you peeking at the gifts being purchased off your registry? I’m trying not to, I love a surprise but I can’t help myself sometimes…

    Yes because I got complaints from one of my aunts that everything "good" had already been purchased and we were still months away. We ended up adding more items to it because individual guests were buying multiple things.

    I was doing it and then I completely forgot. Yesterday I got a box delivered and was completely surprised by one of our more big ticket items being purchased for us!

    It’s a good idea to regularly check your registry because sometimes a store will discontinue items and you need to replace them on the registry or add additional items if everything ends up being purchased quickly. There isn’t an element of surprise that is lost because you know what you wanted and registered for.

    I also love surprises, but every time I get an email about something being purchased I check 😂

    I guess what I really love are well-hidden surprises 😂

    100% check it everyday. Not so much for who's bought what (because not a lot has been purchased yet) but more to make sure what I have picked is still available.

    I get notified but cannot see who purchased what (most of the time). There will be a thank you list available after a certain date. So hopefully that pans out.

    Yes, I definitely keep an eye on my registry for multiple reasons! 1. I’ve been writing thank you notes as we receive gifts so it’s not so overwhelming (having over 100 notes to write all at once would be such a daunting task!) 2. Sometimes things go out of stock or get discontinued, so you’ll want to make sure the items on your registry are actually available! 3. It’s helpful so I know when to be expecting packages (when the gifts are shipped rather than given in-person) so I can minimize the chances of things getting stolen. At the end of the day, you’re the one choosing the gifts on your registry, so it’s not a complete surprise anyways. I think peeking is 100% worth it!
