Starting Your Baby Registry – Our Favourite Local Shops
Is registering for a baby registry a thing of the past?
HECK NO! While the notion of actually going into the store might seem to be a thing of the past, the idea of a baby registry is certainly not! A baby registry can actually be quite useful. They allow you to inform your friends and family what you actually need and want for your journey into parenthood. We all know they are going to get you some sort of token of congratulations; it might as well be something you will love!
Online vs. In-Store
Creating your baby registry online can be a lot more convenient, rather than having to visit multiple stores, but it doesn’t give you the option to touch and feel the items you are interested in. That baby wrap might look super cute and soft, could actually be stiff and too short in person. That darling stroller could look great in a picture, but the ‘real colour’ might simply be not what you want. Visiting the store would help with all misconceptions, and you can talk to an employee and ask any questions you may have about items.
Our personal favourite baby registry for LOCAL shopping is Baby enRoute because of their vast selection of all things baby. They also have the registry available online. Did you know that when you sign up for a (free!) online Baby Registry at Baby enRoute you qualify for a tax-free purchase when you buy in-store? Yep! And they even offer 10% off for parents expecting multiples on duplicate items! BONUS! There’s an extra something special waiting for you when you use the gift registry: FREE 25$ gift certificate on your next purchase!

Our favourite baby registry for ONLINE one-stop-shop-registry is babyli.st which allows you to register for ANY online item for sale. This means etsy.com or amazon.ca or bigcartel.com listings! There’s even have the option to register for favours like ‘home cooked meal’ or ‘babysitting’. They also offer to combine all your registries with other stores (if you’ve already started the hunt), and offer free inserts for your baby shower invitations. They’ve even got a free registry checklist for you to download. You can go ahead and add the PNNP registry listing to your registry using this link.
