Get exactly what you want for Christmas by asking for it.
With Christmas fast approaching (seriously, 47 days), it's time to get serious about my "who to buy for" list. On top of that, my son is turning two-years-old on December 15th. This causes the Grandmas, Grandpas, Great Aunts, etc. to ask..."What does he want?"
Instead of doing the "Oh, he doesn't need anything" dance, all while knowing very well that they would never not get their favorite toddler a gift for his birthday and Chrismas, I decided to get proactive by setting up a wish list on myregistry.com.
I had heard about people doing this and thought it to be a little presumptuous. But now I see that it is efficient and accomodating.
It's user-friendly. When you are setting up your registry, you drag a button to your tool bar. By doing that, you can browse any website and when you find the product you'd like to add, simply click on the button and it will add it to your wish list. You can add the size, color, quantity, etc.
You can add off-line products. For example, my son is going to start gymnastics at the start of the new year. I don't know about you, but this is right up grandparent's alley for us. Take a few photos of the kid running around laughing and doing somersaults and it's the best $60 Grammy has ever spent. So, I added it to the list.
I haven't gone as far as setting up a wish list for myself. Although one can dream...
