My FI loves the store REI. It's an outdoors store that sells clothes and equiptment for camping, skiing, biking, hiking, etc. He has been asking me for months if we can make a registry from that store. I like the store, however, I do not think items from that store should belong on our registery. He thinks otherwise. He wants a nice tent, a pack for hiking, and many a few other items. We have never been camping together, although we may go in the future. I do not hike.
I am planning on registering at JCPenny's and Macy's for all of our kitchen and bath stuff. Should I allow him to make one at REI too? He says he'll only put about 10 items on there.
On more thing, we live 45 minutes from the REI and a lot of our guests live around us. So that means they will have to purchase the gift online. Is this okay?
