Your dreams of becoming a new mom did not include multiple strollers, bouncers, and bibs to outfit an infant army.
So how do you ask shower guests for cash without seeming like a jerk?
Deposit a Gift takes care of it. The website helps you create a personalized cash registry, so you can politely ask guests to pony up for things you really want. Pass on the onesies in favor of funds toward the ultimate babymoon, a regular babysitter, or college tuition.
The process is simple: Sign up for a free account, then create a customized page with event details and contact info. Next, build your registry to show folks how you’ll spend their thoughtful contributions. Think of it like a bank — and cash out when you’re ready for that preschool deposit.
