It seems I’ll deliver in Australia, where I just mOved to with my FI, thus i need to find a good baby online registry that covers international deliveries efficiently and with good shipping prices as everyone we know is outside Australia, either in usa, Europe, uk or south America. So which online baby registry would you recommend? Or a baby registry based in Australia that accepts international payments easily. Im a little confused here you can tell!
And how do you actually get the word out? What’s the best polite way to do it? Do you just send an email with the info and a cute picture or something? If You have pls share! I’m clueless!
Super thanks bees!

Is someone having a baby shower for you? That’s normally when the word gets out about where your registered.

@HisIrishPrincess: ITs hard to say for sure. I’ve met a few friends in Perth but still the bulk of friends are miles away in other continents really! So I’d still have to spread the word in an easy way. It’s not easy!

In your circle of friends and family is it normal to announce that you’ve registered somewhere? It’s not normal in my groups, so I would maybe have mom or mil spread the word. Or hint to your friends that you would love a babyshower but don’t have any family close by to throw one for you. They might take over and get word out to your family and friends.

Here in the UK, a lot of women think a shower is a tacky and grabby American tradition, but many people will individually ask if you’re registered anywhere so that they can buy you a gift. We set something up at Mothercare so that we could tell people who asked.

We currently live in Italy and registered on Amazon. That worked pretty well for us!

Just an idea, my mom went to a baby shower where the mom couldn’t make it. She was in the Air Force in Germany. So everyone brought gifts, unwrapped, and she saw the pics (this was pre-Skype), and then they were shipped to her. If your family back home wants to give you a shower, Skype would be an option!

I’m an Aussie bee and no one I know has ever registered for baby stuff.
If you have a baby shower people just ask what you want or give you a gift voucher to a baby store.
