My Favorite Items On Our Baby Registry

I will admit – building a registry is the most interesting and exciting part about planning for a little one. My husband and I didn’t do a product registry for our wedding and opted to do a honeyfund to have the best honeymoon ever, so this is the first time we’ve had to do a registry to collect all the needs and wants for our little girl. I did a little bit of research on the right stores I wanted and what some other moms were saying about the right products they needed for newborns, and I’ve collected a few tips and products that I have fallen in love with from our registry!

Tips for Building Your Registry

  • Pick at least two stores that offer a variety of pricing options for your gift givers. It’s always great to offer at least one national store, like Target or Buy Buy Baby, to give non-local gift givers the opportunity to shop. Double bonus if it offers an online registry option as well!
  • Compliment your more low-end, national registry with a nicer registry for those items that are higher quality or designed to withstand the test of time like Pottery Barn Kids.
  • Include high priced and low priced items on your registry, including clothes, furniture, strollers, and more. Check to see if your store offers collaborative gift giving, meaning that your visitors can gift you a gift card toward a specific item to share the price of larger registry products.
  • If you have a family member or friend who has been a mom before, ask what they wished they registered for or what they wish they DIDN’T register for to help you get the right items on your registry.
  • Check to see if your registry allows you to add items from other websites, like Target, to help you get a wider variety of what you want from others stores all housed in one place for your gift givers.
  • See your store’s registry checklist to make sure you have everything you need for a new baby.
  • Don’t forget to add a few things you want versus need – it’s always nice to get a gift of something cute for the nursery that you love!

This might be the most innovative pacifier I have seen – not only does it offer all the benefits as a traditional pacifier, but it’s designed to pop into itself when dropped or spit out to prevent any contamination. It completely eliminates your need to carry dozens of pacifiers and sanitizers with you for that stubborn little one as it grows up, plus the variety of colors gives you all the freedom to customize the pacifier to the child’s outfit.
