If it’s time to register but you have some questions, let us help you get the answers you need. The Dear Born registry is designed for ease of use and convenience. Stress free is what you need and we can give it to you! Here are the most frequently asked questions:
1. DoI have to come to the store to register?

Absolutely not! Obviously, we would love to see you and you can book an appointment with us to do a walk around (Book an appointment). Otherwise log in and open a registry and just start clicking and adding the items you want. Click this link for a shopping list, then you know you won’t miss anything INSERT LINK HERE

2. How many products should a good registry have on it?

Lots is the answer! You should have a varied selection of items, with as many different price points as possible so there is something for everyone. Don’t be shy! If a group of people want to get together and do a bigger item make sure there are some higher price points too. Your registry also doubles as your own complete shopping list, so fill it up and let people shop, shop, shop!

3. Can I have items shipped to me, or do I have to pick them up?

The purchaser can choose to ship anywhere. To you, to themselves, leave at store, whatever works best for everyone.

4. Can I return gifts I do not want to keep?

Absolutely. You should return the gifts you do not wish to keep or the duplicates. Make sure they are in the original condition they were bought in (original undamaged packaging and completely packed in original form as in the store's return policy, within 60 days of your event date, posted on your registry. (your event date can be your due date or the date of your shower). All returned items receive a credit that can be used at any time in-store or online.

5. Do my gifts come gift-wrapped?

If someone picks up smaller items in store, we can place them in our bag, with tissue and ribbon all ready to go. Larger items we do not wrap.

6. Do you give a gift receipt?

Yes. We issue a gift receipt for gift purchases with no problem. You can also monitor your purchases on your own personal registry account.

7. How do I know who gave me what?

Easy. Sign in to your registry profile and filter for purchased items. You will then see purchase info and everything you need is there. If you need further assistance call us at 905 881 3334 / info@dearbornbaby.com

8. Why can I not see my registry?

This is an easy fix. You can have a public or a private registry. Private registries can only be seen by those who are given the password whereas public ones can be searched by name. Make sure you have the right one ticked in the back end of your registry.

9. How do I get my registry discount?

Simple. Register for at least 20 unique items. When you want to close your registry out, you will receive a 10% discount on all remaining unbought items (regular retail price). You can do your closeout by phone or in person. There may be some brand exceptions so call ahead to double check. There is one closeout per registry and it can be done up to 3 months after the event date.

10. What happens to items that are not in stock when someone orders them for me?

When items are a pre-order or special order, there will be an indication online as to how long this item is going to take. We call you as soon as the item arrives and you let us know if you are picking it up or want it mailed.
