A New Kind of Baby Registry

Having a baby? There is a new kind of baby registry in town, y’all.

When I was having babies one of my most favorite things to do around the halfway mark was to create a baby registry with my husband. We didn’t make one for our last pregnancy since we already had everything we needed, but we did create one for our first two pregnancies.

It was so much fun looking at all the tiny baby products we would need once we brought baby home from the hospital. Gah, it seems like such a long time ago…

One of the things we noticed, even way back then, was that we had to create multiple registries because we wanted a few things from here, and needed a few things from there. Not only was it an inconvenience to us to have to visit multiple stores to create multiple registries, but I’m sure it was an inconvenience to our friends and family as well who had to shop from multiple registries.

I just recently learned about MyRegistry.com, which is a universal registry for any gift-giving occasion, not just baby registries. And no, before the questions begin…I’m not pregnant. I did do some digging around on the site and I’m seriously bummed I didn’t use this when I was registering for baby gifts way back when. I could have added ALL the things I wanted, without settling because it was at a store that offered a registry.

A New Kind of Baby Registry

Here a just a few reasons you might love Baby Registry:

  • Add gifts from any store in the world. Simply install a button on your bookmarks bar to add any product you can find online. Once you find an item you like, click the button in the bookmarks bar and it is added to your registry.
  • Add gifts on the go from your smartphone. Scan any barcode and add items to your baby registry while browsing your favorite store. Plus, you can add items from stores that do not have websites by taking your own picture and adding a few details about where the item can be purchased.
  • Register for cash gifts. If you prefer cash gifts, you can tastefully register for cash by creating a cash gift fund. This is a perfect option for nursery renovations, baby’s college fund, or any other items/things you can’t register for.
  • Sync the store registries you already have. Import your registries from other stores to create one, universal gift list to make it easier for those buying for you!
  • Easily announce and share your registry. Send beautiful eCards announcing your registry or enable friends to send eCards on your behalf! Personalize your registry’s URL, share your gift list to all your social networks — or go the traditional way and download and print beautiful registry announcements to add to your shower invitations!

This is an example of how a baby registry would look to people browsing your registry. It includes the baby’s due date as well as a short customized message you can create for your friends and family.

As someone who has created baby registries in the past, I love that this service allows you to add exactly what you want. If you want 15 different items from 15 different stores, the system allows you to do that. You can add everything you want, whether the store has a baby registry or not.

As someone who has shopped baby registries in the past, I love that this service allows me to see the price of the item as well as any store incentives, like free shipping. And, if I’m purchasing multiple items, it’s easy to do since it’s online. I don’t have to drive from store to store finding what they want.

Like a traditional store registry, the user is able to specify how many of each item they need. When the item is purchased, it will show it as received and the ‘buy this gift’ button goes away. This should really help in expecting parents not receiving doubles.

As someone who loves to shop online, these online baby registries are right up my alley. With a few clicks I can buy exactly what they’ve registered for without the guessing game at the store. Easier for me and they get exactly what they want. It’s a win-win!

Do you have anything coming up where you could use a registry like this? A new baby, wedding, or graduation?

    Expecting a baby this summer so I’m sure I could get a lot of use out of something like this. I haven’t had a registry in years.

    This is really epic. For normal baby items, this is such a time saver versus schlepping to a store to pick something out. I usually pick out things from the registry anyway so there is no need to go to the store.

    That’s fantastic! This is so much easier than trying to pick one store or even a few stores. Love it.
