Kenny and I attended a "Sip & Scan" event at the nearest Macy's location last night. It was a good way to kick off our registry experience, because to be totally honest, I was intimidated by the thought of having to create a gift list.
Macy's provided appetizers and lots of consultants to help us through the process. We checked in, got a scanner and list of recommended gifts, and were sent on our merry way. We were there for almost two hours scanning stuff. It was hard to get started but once we scanned a few things, we started enjoying ourselves.
The cool thing was that after we were done, we handed the scanner in and the consultant uploaded all of our choices to the computer. She then printed out an updated list of gift categories that we didn't have a lot chosen in, so that we know what we need to work on or register for at other places.
We didn't register for everything at Macy's, because we also want to register at Bed, Bath, & Beyond and also Crate & Barrel.
