Amazon has a universal registry where you can pretty much add anything from another website onto their registry. I had one going for a while, but ultimately opted against it. I thought it would be too tricky for guests. You have to click on an item at, say, Target. It takes you to their page where you purchase said item. The only way for you to get it off your registry, though, is for the guest to come back to your Amazon registry and click it as fulfilled. Seems like a no-brainer, right? Wrong. I already had an aunt send us something and she never click fulfilled, so I opted against it. 

However, you can add gift cards from other stores like Target, Walmart, BBB (for that generic shit you might need), even places like Etsy and Sephora, etc. straight onto your Amazon registry. You can look at their list of gift cards available directly from Amazon, but you can add them from Target’s site, too. I had a friend register solely for gift cards and it worked out pretty well in her favor.

We registered at Simple Registry which allows you to put whatever you like on it- we registered mostly for honeymoon stuff but its all cash in the end. My mom HATED it and freaked out, thought it was “tacky” though so we had to add a “traditional” registry too. We registered at Target and Crate and Barrel- honestly if I were to go back I would NOT register at Target, they are a pain. We just got our first gift in the mail and there wasnt any info on who it was from, if the invoice was not included with the “bill to” info we would have no idea where it came from. I hear that Bed Bath and Beyond lets you return items for cash…..
