A baby registry is essentially a wishlist that you share with friends and family and they can purchase items directly for you. It’s an economical and easy way to prepare for your baby’s arrival.
There are many baby stores in Australia that offer a gift registry service, however I personally highly recommend Amazon AU, MyRegistry, and Baby Bunting. I’ve highlighted their advantages and given a brief summary below.
- 10% off leftover items on your registry (i.e. no one has purchased it for you)
- Thousands of international brands stocked locally in Australia
- Free 30 days return
- Free delivery on orders over $49
Being the biggest online marketplace, Amazon made its debut in Australia in late 2018. With one of the largest local fulfilment warehouses, it stocks many Australian and international brands for fast and quick delivery.
Porducts on Amazon are usually highly competitively priced, often at a much bigger discount than you would find in-store or at online retailers. See my comparison of Amazon vs eBay in Australia.

In the event that you receive a gift that isn’t ideal, Amazon also accepts gift returns with a generous 30 days return policy.

With its free browser extension, you can browse your favourite online stores and easily add items to your baby wishlist.
Its mobile app is also highly rated on the Apple app store, even supporting Family Sharing which allows up to six members to use the app.
- 5% price beat guarantee

As one the largest and most established baby stores in Australia, Baby Bunting is a much loved and well known Australian retailer.
One of the best reasons to set up a baby registry with them is their 5% price promise, where they will beat any local competitor’s price on the same product. This is inclusive of delivery, so you’ll need to factor that into the price comparison.
To help you plan for the arrival of your newborn, Baby Bunting has a new baby checklist you can download for free. It also includes hospital bag essentials for you and the baby.
