Gift Registry - Dennis and Melissa, February 14, 2005
February 14, 2005
A few people have asked about a wedding reception. We aren't 100% yet on the date but think it will be held the second weekend in August.
Our wedding was held in Rome, Italy on Valentine's Day 2005.
Below you will find a crude list we put together as a gift registry. We will try to link to better registries from Target and Amazon.com in the coming days. If donations are easier for you, however, please feel free to use Paypal. Anything would be greatly appreciated.
A couple of kitchen-y things:
7 inch "Veggie knife" and knife block by Global. Free shipping can be had through this site.
8 - cup tilt-head stand mixer from Kitchenaid. We like this white one.
11 - cup Cuisinart food processor. This "Prep 11 Plus" model is the most affordable with all the functions. Top choice for color is silver, but white or black would also match our kitchen.
Set of good quality, cast iron pots and pans. This set from Le Creuset is nice, but only a suggestion. If a color choice is necessary, the blue suits us best.
Mostly to save on the escalating prices of bandages and chemical blood remover, we need a bagel slicer. This one is dishwasher safe and claims that there is "Absolutely no risk of accidental cuts." You've gotta appreciate that.
Tall plants and topiaries. We don't want a jungle, only something to break up all of the 90-degree angles.
Green, corner, outdoor, plant stand. This stratified one from Plow Hearth was perfect!
Fireplace log holder (and possibly new set of fireplace utensils. The site had a lot to choose from, but we want something basic like this. The black log holder shown matches the current poker, et al.
Matching desk chairs. Dennis' chair is too large and Melissa's chair is too crappy. There was a nice silver one at Office Depot that we both liked.
To go with the new office chairs, we would like to preserve the carpeting with one of these hard plastic doodads.
Wooden filing cabinet, light wood finish. We scoured the internet and found this one which is the cheapest. Needs to have 4 drawers
Corner cabinet / shelf. We have an idea of what this should look like - for a very specific purpose of holding a few odd knick-knacks up top and phone books in the bottom. We'll probably ask Melissa's friend to design and build this for us as a wedding gift. Humberto, we're winking at you...
Changing bench for the bedroom. Needs to match the rest of the bedroom set that is only a year and a half old. It is style 272 - Modena.
Nightstand for the bedroom. Needs to match the rest of the bedroom set, as well. There is one already, just need one more to make the pair. It is style 272 - Modena.
Gift certificates for fun evenings or days at...
Santa Cruz Boardwalk
Dave and Buster's
Monterey Bay Aquarium
Cannery Row restaurants and/or attractions
Concert / Symphony / Opera tickets
Bed and Breakfast weekend getaway
Calistoga spa weekend
Sorry that I'm not tech-savvy enough to set this up as an actual gift registry. If you'd like to purchase us something on this list, and you're worried that someone else will also purchase the same item, please send Dennis an email and the item will be removed from the registry. Nothing needs to be a secret. We do solemnly swear to act surprised!
Hugs and kisses,
Dennis and Melissa
