In lieu of putting specific clothes (other than packs of socks and packs of plain organic onesies), my Husband and I simply put gift cards on our BabyList registry, so that folks know what stores we like, etc. BabyList is our only registry, since it's so simple to post things from any store and does not require gifts to be purchased at any specific brick and mortar store. (Everyone in our families are tech savvy, and even the Great Grandparents text...we have a young family )
Have any of you put gift cards on your registries? Do you find that people buy less clothes for you when you do something like this? (Or am I doomed to just getting a pile of clothes and no sensible items? Lol)
I really want to save gift cards for after she is born so I can buy what we need as we need it, and not have a stuffed nursery before she is even here.
(And just a note, I care very little about 'etiquette' as I feel like a lot of 'etiquette' is simply archaic, personally. My mom sees no issue with gift cards on the registry, and we are a non-traditional family in all senses...but I know my Husband's family might feel differently.)
