We told you before how there were better options for in-store baby registries, but we’ll go one step further: Why settle for just one or two stores?
There are many online registry sites that allow you to add items from any store in the world — from Babies R Us to Etsy — and some even include college fund donations, charity donations and babysitting time (perfect for subsequent pregnancies)!
Take a look at 5 alternative baby registry options beyond the registry gun:
MyRegistry.com 1 of 5You can add items from any store in the world, as well as shop their extensive Baby Store for top brands like Stokke, Britax, Skip Hop, etc. You also get free customizable ecards and the ability to register for cash gifts.
