  • Register at a store that is convenient for guests. Guests would not like the inconvenience of traveling way out of theirway to buy a gift that may just as well be at another store close by. If guests are out of town choose 1 or 2 registries thatare well known and likely in their area.
  • If you use more than one registry make sure to register for items you do not want duplicated.
  • Mom-to-be can do her gift registry online if she prefers staying in the comfort of her home. Another advantage to online registries is that out of town friends and family who cannot make it to the shower can purchase a gift online and have it delivered on time for the shower.

If you do not care to include the information this way then tell guests where mom-to-be is registered when guests call or email to RSVP.
