What do you get the couple that has everything — i.e., fame, adulation, a Heisman, a $21 million contract? Well, how about some modestly priced table settings and stainless-steel flatware?
Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and his college sweetheart Rebecca Liddicoat are getting married this summer, his mom confirmed in an interview with FoxDC this week, and a glance at what appears to be their gift registry suggests that these 20-somethings have maintained basic, unpretentious tastes. On their wish list: Some Calphalon cookware (nice but not budget-busting), some $10 bath towels (but so many of them that they won’t have to do laundry all the time), some $40 pictures frames, some fragrant candles. Also, that same Kitchen Aid mixer (in cherry red) that all your friends get for their weddings and then never seem to use. Plus, a lot of little $10 gadgets like a melon baller and a corn peeler. The most exotic thing on their registry: A food dehydrator/jerky maker, for $64.99.
It’s a lot of modestly-priced stuff, which suggests their wedding will be (1) big and (2) dominated by guests who are regular people, not NFL millionaires. They want 24 of those $39.99 place settings, which may mean they’ll be doing a lot of casual entertaining — or just have notions that they will, like most of your friends do when they draw up their registries.
Of course, as our colleague Sarah Kogod notes, we can’t be sure this is truly their registry, and not just an elaborate decoy to throw us off of their real wedding date, so please feel free to disregard this analysis.
