Response to Amazon’s Baby Registry Email
Mommy’s Wish List
What would you wish for?
I pointed out yesterday on my Instagram account, how I humorously got an email from Amazon stating someone purchased a gift off my baby registry. I could have been so excited. Maybe it was the BOB stroller I wanted, or the cute new bedding I picked out. But wait… I gots no babes. My youngest crap instigator is five and recently started kindergarten. I can’t even remember what was on that baby registry list for her. Overall, it was a hilarious event that took place. Amazon later admittedly sent an email apologizing for the error. However, by then the damage was already done as an unknown number of individuals, parents or not, had received the email. Humorous or absurd?
Nevertheless, all this discussion about gift registry got me thinking- what would I put on a registry myself? One of the perks to being a adult is buying what you want (not necessarily what you need). Who cares if you have five pairs of boots, see another pair you want? Buy them. No one is stopping you. Except adulting.
Allowance was replaced by a paycheck and spending money freely on everything is now limited by what fits into the budget after all the bills are paid (hopefully). So even though you might want that sixth pair of boots, you can’t grab em’. I mean you could make the kids eat ramen noodles for a month to afford them. But let’s be realistic, you kinda like your kids more.
So what if you could make a registry list for yourself with all the things you want? I decided to do just that and encourage you to do the same. Why not? I’ve actually done this before and use Amazon wish lists as a way for locationally challenged family and friends to not have to take stabs at what I wanted for holidays. I even had one when my husband was deployed and he’d surprise me with gifts every so often off of it (he is such a sweet man!). So let’s get to it and I ask- What would be on your mommy wish list?
Mommy’s Wish List
- Roomba 690
- Ipad Pro and Pen
- Bose Noise Canceling Wireless Headphones
- Roomba 690
- Ipad Mini
- Filofax Personal Classic Croc in Blue
- Lamy Al-Star Fountain pen in any color!
- Bose Solo 5 TV Sound System
I’m sure I could keep thinking of things I’d want, but there are just the few items that come to mind. So, I ask again, what would be on your “mommy” wish list? Robot cleaners? New Laptop? New car?! Why not. It’s a wish list, which means a list of your wants, and not your needs. A mom can dream right?

Definitely on board with a Roomba being #1 on the list!!!
I love electronics! I could go crazy in Best Buy.
I love Bose! I wouldn’t mind a stereo system from them or headphones.
I don’t own any of their products but always have wanted too
This is a fantastic idea! I totally love the concept and think it would be so helpful for the holidays, birthdays, special occasions coming up!
It’s so helpful. Even for those people whose love language is gifts
I actually have a wishlist made for myself on Amazon. It helps my husband out when it comes to birthdays, anniversaries, etc. I really like your wishlist, though. I want a Roomba too! And a Fitbit. 🙂
It’s so sad so many of us want a roomba! I mean really it’s not for me. It just cuts down on my cleaning
That fountain pen looks nice 😍 I may have an obsession with pens…
I totally have a obsession with pens. I already own three. I just love that color!
I love the idea of an adult/mommy wish list! I would definitely take that Roomba, and I would also throw some jewelry and accessories in there, like scarves and earrings, and then some books and shoes. Oh, give me all the things!
I didn’t even think about jewelry! Off to add some!
My iPad mini is the best thing ever! I love using it for the littles when I babysit

I definitely need to get one. But I want to keep it all to myself!
My kids have lots of appointments and therapy, and I just want it for myself to waste time!
What a great way to give your loved ones subtle ideas for potential gifts.
My husband is horrible about telling anyone what he wants. I really hope it can help everyone!
