I was planning to go into a store to register, but I am thinking I may just do online.
We don’t have much we want or need, and we’d prefer cash gifts, so we’re only registering for a few things at one store–Bed Bath and Beyond. I used to work there so I know their product and policies, which should help me with the whole thing, but I also know all the techniques they use to get you to register for more/more expensive stuff we don’t want or need.
I just made a mock-up registry cart on their website and I was thinking, what the heck, I could just add this all to a registry and be done with the whole task! But I wanted to check first if there are other advantages to going and doing it in store that I should consider instead of doing it online.

Yup we were online only people! And actually we used amazon’s universal registry so we could have multiple stores or items from amazon as well. Nobody seemed to mind, even the older crowd (who are still more than welcome to buy the gift IN the actual store regardless).

We were online only too. We hate shopping, so we were not looking forward to going to a store to register. We did it slowly so we could research stuff while we registered.

Registering was strictly online for us, too. We also went with Amazon and used their universal registry, but we also registered online with Kohl’s just in case anyone wanted to pick something up at a brick-and-mortar place.

@BoiledPNut: Good point about researching. We loved the opportunity to look up different models and reviews on items as we went.
