Jorge and I are at a loss. Well, Jorge is at a loss. I am asking God why there is no Target in Cancun.
We would love to register for gifts. I love presents. Jorge does, too, although he pretends to play it cool.
Here are our issues:
1. We don’t plan on living in Cancun for very long. (Maybe a few more years) So, we don’t need much stuff for the house. Mainly just some cheap furniture items and a few kitchen things.
2. In Cancun, people can only register at department stores (as far as I know). The two department stores that are acceptable for this include Liverpool and Chapur. They have gorgeous stuff, but do I need a $500 peso frying pan, when I can get the same one at Walmart for cheaper? No.
3. Can we just ask for things fom Walmart? There would probably be repeats. 4 blenders? Thanks, but no thanks.
4. We have guests coming in from the States, Merida and Cancun.
WHY IS THERE NO TARGET IN CANCUN?? This would solve all my problems. It’s as cheap as Walmart, and I can register. There you have it… no repeat gifts, don’t have to ask people to spend too much money.
The only thing that has occurred to us (which I think a few people have actually done) is to ask guests for money, if they feel so inclined. Set up an account, let them deposit. Good to go. BUT… is this tacky? Is it acceptable? Is it my only option? Also, I understand that Mexicans find it rude to not give a physical gift. Would I then just end up with a bunch of stuff I don’t necessarily need, if I didn’t register?
I’ve been trying to push the issue to the back of my mind, but it’s getting to be too late. WHAT TO DO???
What would you do?
