Registry 101: Recreation

It's time for a little bit of fun on the registry list - Recreation

Register for tents, backpacks and even "Ruffwear" gear for your dog at this no-frills destination. Everything on the site is fair game—just be sure to register in the gift section rather than in the wish list.

This New Jersey merchant has a well-stocked Web site and offers great prices on everything from hiking socks to kayaks. Complete your registry and send an e-mail announcement to family and friends.

Whether you're a triathlete or you just want to stock up for the ski season, REI is an outdoorsman's (and outdoorswoman's) dream come true. You can choose your outdoor clothing and equipment online, over the phone or in one of the REI stores.

Register for outdoor gear like bikes, scooters and skates as well as their always-unusual assortment of gadgets. Best sellers include air purifiers, navigational systems and the R2-D2 Interactive Droid. Everything on the Web site is available for your registry.
