I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Custom categories, instead of a preset list.

    I, for example, would really just like to sort in 'most needed,' 'love to have,' 'like to have,' 'nice to have', etc., since the things we want/need the most aren't necessarily the most expensive.

    • Organize by Price

      I know there are plenty of people who will want to see the cheaper, or more expensive, items on my registry. It would be nice to have an option to organize the items by price from lowest>highest or highest>lowest.

      • For big priced items, allow the cost to be split among buyers.

        For those who want to help out with the big ticket items but can't afford it all, allow the registrant to split the item into a few chunks. Sometimes people don't know who to contact about "going in on" a gift together, and this way it will be set up for them. For example when you register for a $400 stroller, you could split it into 4 $100 "pieces". If someone still wants to buy the whole thing for you, they buy all 4 pieces.

        • mark a received item as "purchased"

          For when we receive items that weren't "reserved". So you don't have to reserve it yourself or delete it.

            I want to make sure you guys know what this suggestion is about:

            If someone purchases something off of your registry, they “reserve” the item. This works fine 99% of the time.

            If you receive something off of your registry that for some reason wasn’t reserved, you should be able to set it as reserved (instead of having to delete the item). That’s the thing we don’t do yet.

          • Printable version

            If there isn't going to be a smartphone app (and for older generations of folks) it'd be nice to get a printable version of the list, formatted to show the item name, store, price and number needed. It'd help for comparison shopping in local stores for the same items.

            • I love the categories! I wish that I could arrange the order that the categories are in.

              "clothing and accessories" (probably the least needed stuff on my list) is first, whereas, what I need most "diapers" is third.

              • Barcode scanning!

                Would love to go to the different stores with my cellphone or iPad and be able to just scan items and add them to our online registry.

                • Allow a list maker to select if it's okay to receive a used item.

                  When adding an item to Babylist, I would love to see the option of receiving an item in gently used condition, instead of just brand-new. So many baby items are safe and great to receive used (and I appreciate the custom images for used books, used clothes, etc.)! It feels that there are a million things needed for baby, and I know my friends and family do not have unlimited funds to purchase. Allowing this option would diversify the price-point of a registry and provide even more opportunities to fulfill items on a person's registry (Craig's List, eBay, Consignment, etc).…

                  • List organization options for both creators and viewers.

                    It would make making lists far more simplified if there were a way other than dragging and dropping every single item to sort them into basic categories such as Nursery, Travel, Clothes, Feeding, Diapering, etc. I think I'd be less likely to forget items if I can break them down into smaller categories.
                    The same can be true for people looking through a list made by someone else. Things seem less over whelming when it's not a jumbled mess. However, I think that gift givers would benefit more from sorting items by price.
                    Let me know what ya'll think! :)

                    • Sort by website, and a way to prioritize items you need

                      Other sort requests besides my category and price - by website so it's easier to make multiple purchases from the same site to save on shipping, and also by "need level" . Amazon has a great feature that allows you to prioritize items along the lines of "need to have, nice to have, not essential but I just love it" or something along those lines...

                        • Price changes

                          I would love to see the registry automatically update price changes, both temporary & permanent. I find myself clicking on the links often to make sure the prices match up so I don't have family & friends taken by surprised when the price is completely different. Prices change often though so I don't know if possible to do.

                                it would be great to list mutiple stores, If an item is sold in more than one place - at babiesRus, target, AND amazon for example, with multiple prices, or a price range.

                                  Hi,

                                  You can now list 2 vendors and prices. To do this, click “edit” beside an item. There will be a “+” sign beside the link. Click this and you can add a second link and price.

                                  I’ll leave this open until you can add more than two.

                                  Let me know if you see any issues with this.

                                  Thanks!
                                  Natalie

                                  • Sync babylist with store registries

                                    There are some people who still prefer to go a physical store, print the registry and shop. Likewise, when selecting certain items to put on a registry, sometimes it is easier to go to a store, see the items and add them with the store's scanner. It would be nice if I could select existing store registries to sync to my Babylist.

                                        My mom is NOT tech-savvy so I used her as a guinea pig - she could not figure out how it worked, and did not think to click on FAQ. I used the "note from us" section and copied the FAQ description on how the site works into that space. Once that was there, she said it was easy to understand.

                                          Before finding babyli.st, my wife and I had started lists on other services (Amazon.com, REI, etc).

                                          We found babyli.st because we were looking for one list that could handle both these items and "non-purchasable" items. It took us a full evening (maybe 4-5 hours?) to move our list over item-by-item. If we weren't having so much fun adding silly "descriptions" to each item, this would have been a brutal undertaking. As the same time, I expect that this could be a barrier to potential users who have already invested effort into making lists on other services.

                                          The UX would go…

                                            Hi,

                                            I LOVE this idea. Until we have this, if you send us your other registry we will manually add each item to your BabyList.

                                            Also – you can link to your other registries if you go to it and click the “Add to BabyList” button as if it were any other item. Then if you categorize it as “Other Registries” it will appear at the top.

                                            Thanks!
                                            Natalie
