Whether you're logged into your new Amazon account or your well-loved one, you'll be able to start creating your registry!
- Hover your mouse over Account & Lists in the upper right-hand corner of your screen, right beneath your name. This will open up a list of categories.
- Select Baby Registry from the List Category.
- You'll be booted over to the page where you have the option to Create a new Baby Registry. At this point, you'll have the chance to enter your information which includes address, expected arrival date, and other gift options that are pretty self-explanatory.
- When you're finished, click on Create your registry at the bottom!
Public vs. Private registry
If you reach this point in entering your information, you may find yourself wondering what the difference is between a public registry and a private one. In order for your friends and family to see it, the registry needs to be public. You may want to build it in private until its complete and ready to share. In order to change the settings, you just have to change the privacy settings in the Settings page of your registry.
Now, it's time for the fun part–building your registry!
Once you've created your page, you'll be redirected to your registry's homepage.
Amazon's platform is pretty intuitive for recommending items for you, especially if you're not sure where to begin. You can even use a Gift Advisor which will help you plan your list and find specific products.
If you have specific items in mind that you want to add to your list, there is an option to do so directly from the product page. Search for the item you want and follow the same steps you normally would if you wanted to add an item to your cart, but click on Add to Baby Registry instead of Add to Cart or Buy Now.
If you know that your loved one will need to be in the hospital for a period of time, consider gifts someone can use while in the hospital.
If you've accidentally added something to your registry that doesn't belong there - don't panic. It can easily be deleted or changed within your baby registry page.
To the right of every item, there will be three options. They are: - Add to cart - Edit - Delete
In order to delete the item, just click on Delete and you'll be good to go!
Once you're feeling pretty good about the items you've collected, it's time to share the list with your friends and family!
Amazon offers different links to social media to expedite the sharing process. You can also copy and paste the link to send it directly to friends.
From here, your friends and family have the option to pick and choose which gifts they want to purchase, and you can sit back and relax!
When you're done with the registry, deleting it is pretty simple. In the registry's homepage, click on the Menu button on the left-hand side of the screen. Then, click on Registry Settings.
This will take you back to the initial screen where you entered in your specific information. You'll find the option to Delete your registry at the very bottom of the page, right above the scroll bars that show you recommendations.
A pop-up screen will ask you if you're sure you're ready to delete your registry. This is up to you, but if you're ready click Yes, delete my registry.
And viola! You've successfully deleted your registry!
Wedding planning can be stressful, but for many, creating the registry is actually fun.
