Why You Should Create a Baby Registry Even If You’re Not Having a Baby Shower
One of the best parts of preparing for your baby is creating a baby registry. While it might be overwhelming to determine just what you need for baby, there’s nothing but joy when it comes to adding adorable outfits, snuggly blankets, and sweet toys to your baby registry. If you’re not having a baby shower though, you might wonder if you should still create a baby registry. If you’re on the fence about creating a baby registry, check out the reasons below that you should go for it even if you’re not planning to have a baby shower!
It’ll help you stay organized
There’s no doubt that babies need a lot of stuff. Creating a registry and then checking things off as you buy or are gifted them is an easy way to keep track of what you have and what you still need to get. Even if you don’t get the exact items on your registry, knowing that you have enough newborn diapers, sleepers, or pacifiers can be helpful as you move closer to your due date.
You’ll still get discounts
Most stores and online retailers offer registry completion discounts so, even if you’re not having a baby shower you can save some serious dough on the things you’ll buy anyway by purchasing them off of your registry.
Well-wishers will have somewhere to look
Even if you’re not having a shower, you might have people in your life who want to get you something special to help you welcome your new baby. Instead of shopping with no direction, (and potentially gifting you with things you already have, don’t want, or don’t need) well-wishers will be able to shop your registry and purchase things that they know you need and will use.
Creating and shopping from a baby registry is fun. Even if you’re not having a shower you can still spend time shopping, comparing, and selecting the items you want for your baby and adding them to your registry. Just because you’re not having a shower doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun creating your baby registry!
