First Apartment Sample Registry

June 4th, 2019

Bailey has landed her dream job and is moving to a new city.

Adventure awaits, and including the adventure of outfitting her first apartment. Moving into a new apartment for the first time comes with a few headaches, but Bailey isn’t concerned. After doing some research, she came up with an ingenious plan for the new home: Cue Blueprint.

Her to-do list includes:

  • Make a budget
  • Gather some decor inspiration
  • Finalize a list of what to purchase

Easy enough, right? Bailey is no stranger to getting things done. With the help of friends and family, she plans to make her new digs into her personal oasis.

Bailey created a Blueprint apartment registry to browse around for apartment inspiration, and build a shopping list. Blueprint allowed her to add physical items from every store and boutique she loves. Combined with a desire for clean organization, Bailey was able to ensure that the registry included home essentials, fun decor, and even a few items for a dreamy home office.

By sharing the registry with friends and family, Bailey is excited to start working on her to-do list, make an apartment into a home worthy of the #boss she plans to be.

Questions & Considerations

How do I get started with a first apartment/home registry?

Keep it personal, keep it unique, and keep it realistic. Start by creating a Blueprint account and editing your images and welcome message. Visit our physical gift catalog, cash gift catalog, and essentials collections to start adding gifts. And finally, don’t forget to install our Blueprint chrome button to add gifts from any online store.

How do I personalize my registry?

Photos, gift names, gift descriptions, themes—you can build your registry around anything you want. We’ve seen silly photos and funny descriptions for a light-hearted approach. We’ve also seen registries that are all around a theme (like a forest fantasy, color families, etc.). The most important thing is that your voice and vision shines through.

Hot Blueprint Tip: We’ve found the more personalized a registry is, the more family and friends are likely to shop. Make sure your loved ones can feel your personal touch throughout your registry.

Is there a fee to using Blueprint?

Blueprint is free for you and your guests to use. Gifts are purchased by your guests directly from each online retailer. They are only responsible for the purchase price and shipping of the gifts.

The only exception may apply if you’ve added cash funds to your registry and the guest wants to contribute. They will see a handling fee added to their cash fund order of 2.5%.

Full details and how you can collect your cash funds can be found here.

How do I share my registry with loved ones?

Traditionally, registries are shared best by word-of-mouth. When you share, make sure you mention you’re registered at www.blueprintregistry.com under your full name. Knowing the first and last name on your Blueprint account will make searching for your registry much easier.

You can also share your registry URL as a direct link to your registry. Your custom URL can be found—and edited—in your Registry Settings.
