Where was this when I was pregnant?
When you’re expecting, you get asked a lot by family and friends what you would like as a gift from them.
It’s not always easy to know and most of the time it requires sitting down and making out a list of what you have and what you still need. But you can’t really send that list out to everyone you know, or can you?
Jackanory Baby Boutique has recently launched a baby registry to make your life a whole lot easier.
I remember furiously googling last year to find an Irish baby registry while I was pregnant and came up empty-handed.
This new feature on Jackanory’s website really fills a gap in the market when it comes to pregnancy services. In countries like America, it’s standard for most stores to have registries for babies and weddings, but in Ireland, they are much harder to come by.
The service allows you to create a wish list for yourself that you can share with your friends and family.
Not only will you not have to worry getting two of the same thing but you’ll also get 10% off everything that hasn’t been purchased from your registry as your due date approaches.
I reiterate, where was this last year when I need it?
If that wasn’t enough the gifts will be shipped directly to your home with tracking and insurance, and they will be gift wrapped without any additional cost.
You can also exchange gifts within 90 days for a full refund if necessary.
You can sign up through their website and get started on your baby registry today.
Now to get to the fun task of choosing what you want to add to your wish list. Decisions, decisions.
Some mums may not find much use for a registry but I think, particularly if you’re a first-time mum they can really come in handy.
