A Better Baby Registry

I finally started – and completed! – my baby registry last week. I was, quite honestly, dreading the process because I knew it involved a lot of education and research about what exactly to register for. It wasn’t so bad, though – especially after my blog readers weighed in with their recommendations.

Once I knew what to register for, I had to decide where to register. And that’s when I discovered an amazing site that allows you to register at multiple online stores… all in one location.

You’ve got to check out MyRegistry.com. The site allows you to register for gifts from a variety of online retailers – so I could choose gifts from Amazon, Babies ‘R Us, and Etsy. When you sign up for an account, MyRegistry installs a little button at the top of your browser, and whenever you are on a website that features a gift you’d like to register for, you simply click “Add to My Registry” – and it does!

Other advantages to MyRegistry:

  • MyRegistry automatically searches for the best price, so your gift-givers get the best deal.
  • You can also register for cash gifts.
  • You can use an iPhone and the MyRegistry app to scan gifts into your registry at a brick-and-mortar store, as you traditionally would when registering for gifts.
  • You can post your registry to Facebook.
  • You can make your registry private with a password.
  • You can hide your shipping address.

I’m loving MyRegistry – it’s totally a registry for the modern age.

Where did you register? Did you go into a store or register entirely online? I hate shopping so online registries really appealed to me!
