Setting Up a Baby Shower Registry


A baby shower, like most gift-giving occasions, is a cause for joy for some and panic for others. What does the new mom want or need? How much should I spend? What if I give the same thing as everyone else? Shopping for a gift takes time, and often causes frustration, even when you’re shopping for someone you know. What do you give a newborn?


Or should you focus on the mom-to-be? For some people, the stress and indecision leads them to settle on giving a gift of cash. A baby shower registry is the clear solution to these problems. Not only does it make the gift-giving process much easier, it also makes life simpler for the recipient, helping her start to motherhood become much smoother.

First of all, do your best to set up your registry well before your shower. This gives guests plenty of time to look at your list, and to find second or third options if their first choice has already been purchased. Nearly all of the most popular department stores allow you to create a baby shower registry.


The mom-to-be can visit the store in person, or even go online. Either option is simple and (depending on how many employees are available to help you out) quick. You can visit department stores such as JCPenny and Sears, or you can also create your registry at Babies ‘R’ Us, Target, and even Wal-Mart. You might decide to register at more than one store to cover all your needs – perhaps clothing at one store and toys and baby room items at another.

One of the nicest things about a registry is that it allows the parents-to-be to consider not only what they will need right after the birth, but also during the last month of pregnancy and even the first several months of the child’s life. This way, they won’t have a surplus of newborn-size sleepers and practically nothing come month three. It also allows them to choose a variety of items, from clothing to toys to furniture to adornments.


This means that each guest who visits the store or checks the registry online will have an array of choices in terms of item and price, and can select the gift that best suits their tastes and budget. And, of course, there is no need to worry about gifts being duplicated – the registry either hides or indicates with a check that the item has already been purchased. Some registries even let the buyer sort the gifts by type or price, making it easier than ever to make a good choice.

Another benefit to using registries is that families or friends who live far away or simply cannot attend the shower, but still wish to congratulate the couple and help them with their new arrival, can use the registry (either online or at their local store) and have a gift delivered to the parents-to-be, or arrange for it to be picked up.

Finally, a baby shower registry is an efficient way for the parents to know what they still need to purchase – not only will they not forget anything, but they can also start budgeting for certain items. Simply put, a registry is best for both well-wishers, and the soon-to-be parents.
