Wrapistry’s new baby registry service

With no end to the pandemic in sight, brick-and-mortar shopping experiences have increasingly been replaced by the click-and-mortar variety: you order online and have it delivered to your home. And because family and friends may not always be able to celebrate a new baby’s arrival in person, it makes finding and delivering the perfect gift more important than ever.

Who better to trust with your baby shower gift registry needs than Wrapistry, South Africa’s already-trusted online gift registry? Wrapistry uses design and technology combined with exceptional customer service to help couples – and their loved ones – browse through a curated selection of everything that new parents and the new arrival may need. Couples can choose from an amazing range of products. From stylish cots and sleek strollers to everyday essentials (think cutlery sets and vests), Wrapistry has created the ultimate baby registry. Plus, new, beautiful items are added to the online store each week. Couples can ask for exactly what they want – whether that’s gifts or cash funds – all in one place, so their loved ones have options. And if the couple want a big-ticket item, group gifting gives shoppers the opportunity to contribute what they can.

Forget the hassle of keeping track of who gave you what, Wrapistry does all the hard work for you. The added bonus? You get free delivery, free exchanges and the opportunity to customise the look and feel of your registry. Genius! You can visit their Facebook and Instagram pages here.
