To Register, or Not To Register

Baby Gift Registries

It seems like only a few years ago that the gift registry was almost unheard of. If you had an event coming up, you’d just go to the shops and pick out a gift for the person depending on what they like, the occasion, your budget or all three. But times have changed and while it may have started with weddings, now there is a gift registry for almost everything and baby showers are definitely no exception.

Benefits of a Baby Gift Registry

There are some real advantages to the gift registry. If you’re a guest buying a gift for an upcoming event and you don’t know the mum-to-be very well, a gift registry is a great way to choose a gift that they’re guaranteed to love. Likewise,  if you’re time-poor a registry can often take the hassle out of going from shop to shop to find the perfect present and now many gift registries can be done online which makes it even easier.

For the person receiving the gifts, a registry can be a great way to ensure that you get the presents that are on your dream list, rather than receiving presents that may not suit your needs or your taste. Like buying items for your house or for your wardrobe, buying things for a new baby is a matter of personal taste and individual needs. Not planning on breastfeeding? Well, receiving a breast pump is a generous gift but it won’t suit your needs and you will probably need to return it, which can be both awkward and inconvenient.
