Some couples want fine china; others prefer a trip to China. Now, wanderlusters can get their dream gifts, too. Book a vacation, and sendusoff.com will convert the itinerary into a registry.
• Prefer someone else to do the planning? The agents at Distinctive Honeymoons will custom-design your trip, then itemize it so loved ones can buy you a piece (800/803-1360; www.distinctivehoneymoons.com).
• The Aruba Online Bridal Registry (011-297/582-2607; bridal.aruba.com) lets you add catamaran cruises and hot-stone massages to your wish list.
• Adrenaline junkies can register to cycle through a Botswanan game reserve with one of Backroads' packages (800/462-2848 or 510/527-1555; www.backroads.com).
• Of course, you'll need gear. At REI (800/426-4840; www.rei.com), sign up for a set of his-and-hers sleeping bags that zip together.
