– About Registry Finder –

RegistryFinder.com is a gift registry locator designed to make it EASY for you to search by name to find gift registries online. We created this website to solve the slightly annoying problem of not knowing where someone you want to buy a gift for is registered.

How the site got started

The idea came about when our founder received a wedding invitation from her friend’s son. While wanting to send a gift, the couple lived in another state and she had no idea what they wanted or where they might be registered.

After researching stores in their area and checking the online gift registries at each of those stores, she finally found their gift registry, but thought, “There has to be an easier way!” She couldn’t believe there was no easy way to search online to find where someone is registered.

Knowing there were other busy people who could benefit from such a simple service, she decided to develop a website to fill that void.

Blogger & Customer Service Manager

Katie, with her amazing husband and 4 enthusiastic children, lives in the land of controlled chaos. While she might not know how many licks it takes to get to the Tootsie-Roll center of a Tootsie-Pop, she does know the best thing to remove diaper paste from every inch of a child’s bedroom (and their younger brother). When she’s not carting kids to and from school, practice, or a game, Katie loves a delicious cup of coffee with a good book or preferably a great friend (which is a nice way of saying she locks herself in the bathroom for 45 seconds to guzzle down coffee she made two hours ago, in peace).
