@ktfran can you navigate the shower and/or registry to find something y’all would enjoy?
Not exactly the same, but my friend just had a baby and her and her husband already had EVERYTHING or really can afford anything – but every work/group/charitable organization they were involved in absolutely insisted on hosting a shower. So what she did was theme them – for instance she did a “book themed” shower. She kept some of the books but donated the rest to a local organization.
An example of a less “gift-like” wedding shower could be recipes and cookbooks for a shower. People can gift you their favorite cookbook and recipe. I’ve also heard of someone else doing a “Christmas ornament” shower (I realize seasonally/religiously specific) and all the guests brought an ornament for the tree.SLSParticipant
Like others have said, I don’t think you should ask for the ring. I feel like if your mom wanted you to have it (prior to general inheritance after passing) she would have mentioned it to you already in your other discussions about jewelry.
I think SpaceySteph gave a great example regarding having your boyfriend ask for a “family ring” for something sentimental. I have known several couples to do this, but often times they have known in advance there was a ring/diamond waiting for when that time came. But, I think it is different if you want to start the tradition instead of your mom. If you want to start that tradition then you might have to wait to have your own kids instead of forcing your mom to start it for you?
