What parents-to-be put on their lists more than anything else. 

Expecting? One of the more fun things you'll be doing in the coming months is collating your list of most wanted baby gifts! Whilst you might not want a lot of presents, most of the time your loved ones will want to get you something - even if just for the gesture. A great way to make sure you get what you actually need (avoiding waste at the same time), is to create a baby Gift Registry. Read on for our top 10 items that featured on our customer's registries last year for some fun ideas.

Why make a baby Gift Registry?

Think of a baby Gift Registry as your concierge to giving and getting a good gift. It’s a simple and effortless service designed to minimise waste and maximise ease. It means there'll be no double ups of gifts, no confusion between the person gifting and the one receiving and both the recipient and the giver will feel great.

How to make a baby registry in Australia?

It's super easy to create, use and manage a Gift Registry on The Memo. Parents to-be can browse our curated edit of the best in the baby biz by creating an account and adding items to their list. Friends and family can quickly locate your registry by searching for your name on our site. Shopping is easy too with free delivery and no minimum spend required when someone shops off your gift registry. Probably the biggest bonus for new parents though is our 30 Day Trial, which guarantees free and easy returns for 30 days after you've given birth (and not the day your item was purchased).
