I've never been one to accept gifts easily. So when it came time for us to start our registry, I had a hard time deciding where to start. Jeremy and I ended up settling with just three places: Crate & Barrel, Amazon & website to raise money for our honeymoon.
It's very important to always pick at least one store to which people can walk-in and purchase a gift. Especially for many of the older guests, who would rather pay in store than figure out how to pay for something online. For that reason, we chose Crate & Barrel.
But for our Online shopping friendly friends and family, we had tons of choices. Websites that sold nostalgic toys and decorative items. ThinkGeek with it's amazing gadgets and nerd-den items. Amazon offers many items, but not everything. All these wish lists were piling up and almost all of them had less than 10 items a piece. I felt silly making people click through all these registries.

Luckily, Amazon released their Universal Wishlist tool. A browser add-on that let's you add a product from any website onto one of your existing amazon wish lists!
Simple enough, right?
>>> ADD ITEM TO YOUR AMAZON WISH LIST
Install the Amazon Universal Wish List button. Go to any website that advertises a product. It doesn't even have to be a checkout page (great for all those sites that redirect to Paypal). Click the Amazon Universal Wishlist icon. You can click the "Add to Wish List" drop down and select
>>> MANAGE YOUR WISH LIST/REGISTRYIt's so easy to go back and make changes, view updates and see what's still there and what has been bought. Sometimes people forget to purchase your items through your registry checkout (woops!) Just go to your manage registry page and manually remove the items.
It's never too early to tell Santa what you want for Christmas this year...
