Should married couples sign up for a bridal registry for anniversary gifts?

Many bridal registry services include anniversaries in their gift registry services. Although many couples prefer to not receive gifts from others on their anniversaries, there are married couples who do want the gifts.

Do you think it is tacky to create an anniversary gift registry or do you think like a bridal registry, it is a good idea? What is your experience with anniversary gift registries? Would you create an anniversary bridal registry? Your Thoughts

Presumptuous

I would hope that giving gifts to a couple on the wedding day would help start them in their new lives together. After getting married, I should think they would work together to get things they need as time passes. Giving them gifts on their anniversary robs them of the importance of working together on their finances and saving for things they need or want. Almost seems greedy for a couple to proceed with an anniversary registry in order to get more from friends and family. If friends and family want to give a gift to a couple, that is different.

No

Anniversary registries are only slightyly more tacky than bridal registries, in my opinion. I don't like to be "told" what to buy for any occasion.

Poor Taste

No, I wouldn't. I think asking for gifts for an anniversary celebration is in poor taste. Most couples who have been married a few years have the necessities of running a home.
