What's a Universal Baby Registry?


Babies come with a lot of stuff. When you add a new little person to your life, you’re also adding a stroller, crib, diaper bag, bins of toys, dresser drawers full of tiny clothes…

The happy news is that friends and family will want to give you a gift to celebrate the new addition to your family. The only sensible thing to do is let them know what you need — and want. That’s where a gift registry comes in.

At MyRegistry.com, we believe gift options should be unlimited — if you want it, it goes on your gift list. We turned that belief into a reality by creating a fully universal gift registry. “Universal” meaning it’s all up to you: Add anything you like, from any store you like to one registry, with just the click of a button.

Millions of parents later, MyRegistry’s easy-to-manage platform lets you create the gift registry of your dreams. And once someone buys a gift from your registry, anyone who looks at the list will see that gift marked “purchased.” That way, you get just what you want and nothing you don’t.
