We all know from experience how time-consuming and frustrating shopping for children at any age can be and there is nothing more annoying than parents telling you, “I have no idea what you should get her for Christmas.” To battle this time of the year and for Maddie’s first Christmas, I’ve decided the quickest way for people to shop for her and the easiest would be to create a gift registry for her.
Last week I created a registry on Babies”R”Us with items I know Maddie needs. Family members can review the list and add items to their cart or shop around the best prices for those items. You don’t necessarily have to use Babies”R”Us, there are many online sites that allow you to pull gifts from various sites such as Amazon, Wal-Mart, Target, etc.
It was very easy to create and I feel it takes pressure off those wondering what she needs.
Some people may think this is a little “nervy,” but I did it for the simple fact to make people’s lives easier and save them time. They can take as they wish and not even get her items off the registry, but when in doubt of what to get they can always refer back to the holiday registry.
Will I be doing one for birthdays and other special occasions? Probably not, but for the holidays, especially her first (who really knows what to get a 7 month old?) I felt I couldn’t go wrong with saving others and even myself time with the holiday shopping craziness.
Have you ever done something like this for your children? How to people tell you what to get for their children and vise versa?
Any tips for people shopping for babies and young children that you feel might help make their lives a little easier?
