There are some huge changes going on in the baby registry market right now {ahem…we’re looking at you Babies “R” Us}, but have no fear. There are still a lot of great choices when it comes to registering for baby in store. Even if you aren’t planning on a shower, the coupons are great and it’s nice to have a place for all of the things on your list. From awesome returns, quality brands and even better deals, here are some of the best big box stores in Houston to create a baby registry. Read on for the low-down on their registry perks and some must-haves.


Target carries an array of baby furniture, as well as a huge variety of diapers, wipes, and medications you will need for your little one. They have all of the latest breastfeeding, pumping, and bottle supplies. They stock some of the most popular baby carriers, strollers, and carseats- just about everything you would ever need for baby! And brands like Cloud Island and Cat & Jack make Target my new favorite go-to registry spot. Bonus:: they are everywhere! 

Target is a great place to register for a few reasons::

  • Welcome Goodie Bag with $50 in coupons and samples 
  • 15% registry completion coupon
  • Returns up to 1 year after your due date 

Target Must Haves :: Be sure to check out their Cloud Island line {a Target Exclusive}. This line is full of really sweet nursery decor, bedding, and clothing.

Buy Buy Baby

There are only 4 Houston Area Buy Buy Baby locations, so they are not super accessible to everyone, but.. they are a Bed, Bath and Beyond store. So, think beautifully organized baby bottles, toys, gear, and furniture. It’s pretty amazing! They have one of THE best registry systems with a lot of perks::

  • Welcome goodie bag
  • 10% completion coupon
  •  Announcement Cards
  • Ask A Friend tools when creating your registry
  • Refer a Friend {If they create a registry, you get $25 off $100+}
  • Price match + easy returns 

Basically, Buy Buy Baby is just as phenomenal as Bed Bath and Beyond. They have all of the major brands and a huge price range. This store is very much a one-stop-shop for a baby registry. 

Buy Buy Baby Must Haves :: Some of the best deals on bigger gear {strollers/carseats}, and they carry brands like Stokke, UppaBaby, Baby Jogger, and HMB favorite Austlen.

Pregnancy can be stressful, but registering for baby is such an exciting part of it!  There is something really fun about walking around a baby store and picking out products and brands that will grow up with your little one. These stores are full of helpful people with great advice, and a wide range of choices. We all have a vision in mind when it comes to how we will take care of our baby, and it’s important to find the store or stores whose registries fit that vision. 

{And heads up, mamas :: If you have Babies R Us/Toys R Us gift cards, use them NOW as they will stop accepting them in less than a month.}
