We've decided we really don't want to do a traditional registry because we're both in our late 30's and have been fortunate enough to have well-paying jobs that have allowed us to buy what we want over the years. We've now blended two very full households worth of stuff into one small city apartment and I spend half my free time trying to GET RID of things.
I come from a family that values charitable donations, and I'd really like to give people the option of making a donation in our honor instead of buying us a gift. Does anyone have any experience doing this? What's a the best, tactful, way to do it?
