Amazon Registry Recommendation

Thanks to your comments/recommendations on a post I wrote a while ago about wedding registries, I decided to use Amazon for our baby registry.

It's so simple to use! There's an option to install an "Add to Registry" button on your browser toolbar, which means you can add things to your registry from any website (not just Amazon.com). For example, I've added things from Etsy, as well as my friend's shop: Speckled Little Frog.

I've had a great time adding things for "Coconut." I highly recommend it!

As Matt and I add things to our registry, we're not just restricting ourselves to traditional things you would put on a baby registry. Similarly, when we got married, we put all sorts of things on our wedding registry, such as a dog backpack and a subscription to Angie's List. Many of our friends enjoyed buying us more unconventional gifts. I'm still trying to figure out a way to add services to our registry. For example, I would love to have an option for people to sign up to buy us some housekeeping, post-birth. Maybe I could add gift certificates from a housekeeping agency?

P.S. There are 5 days left to secure your spot in the next Purposeful Conception Course: Preparing Your Mind, Body, and Life for Pregnancy! Based on feedback from the last course, it seems like it's better to enroll earlier rather than later in the pre-conception process. Let me know if you have any questions!

Sarah... can customers tell when an item is sold out or unavailable? and does Amazon track when something is purchased?

Thank you! I've been looking for better ways of registering. I wish there was a way to give your guests a list of WHAT you need, but not necessarily a particular product. So if you need a knife set, they can pick any knife set they want to.
