Depending on where you live, your age, and your background, you may not be familiar with registering for baby showers. At first it might seem a little odd, but it's actually a really good idea, especially if you plan on having a large baby shower.
Obviously if you're preparing to register your baby shower, the shower isn't going to be a surprise. That's okay! Surprises are for ten-year-olds. No longer is it necessary for the best friend to be saddled with the baby shower responsibility.
The first thing you have to do is pick a store to register with. Make it a big store, or a baby boutique with a lot of different price options. When you're running down the checklist of baby gifts you'd like to have, don't just check everything that falls under the Luxury Baby Gifts category. Just because Aunt Martha hit the jackpot last year doesn't mean everyone has the means to buy gold encrusted personalized burp cloths!
Some people feel like a baby registry is the same as advertising what you want for gifts. Well, it is, but in a good way. People don't have time to waste and they appreciate knowing what you want. If you're partial to embroidered baby gifts,you can let them know. Interested in a nice newborn baby gift basket? Check it off the list.
When the baby shower finally rolls around, your friends and family will feel confident and happy with their baby gift choices.
