Registry! It’s a lot of effort to go back and buy everything I want on the registry with the gift card

If you are buying online you have to enter a card in anyway…🥴

Gift card because there are 100 things you don’t know you need until after baby is born. And when it’s 4am and you’re buying 3 different swaddle in desperate hopes for baby to sleep, a gift card is great. Or when you find out baby hates the bottles you bought, gift card saves the day.

If they have a registry it’s for a reason! Use it or cash.

Some online baby registries have the option to give gift cards too. You might not have to choose between the two options, LOL.
