Barack Obama doesn't think you need that new toaster, blender or Keurig coffee maker.

On his reelection website, there's a new blog post asking you to forgo wedding gifts or birthday gifts, anniversary gifts, or bar mitzvah gifts and, instead, ask your friends and family to donate to the campaign.

They've even set up a page where you can register to receive donations as gifts.

It's pretty clear they know they're going too far with this...the blog post ends with a joke that says, quote, "It's a gift that we can all appreciate, and goes a lot further than a gravy bowl."

Here's a link to the "Obama Event Registry" page.
