IKEA Portland Has a Gift Registry!

Disclaimer - I was not paid for this post.  I am eligible to receive minor compensation for items purchased from registries created with the below affiliate link.

I get a lot of promotional e-mails from companies and almost always say no to promoting what they have to offer.  I don't want people to feel like I'm always trying to sell them things.  It's important to me that my content is either fun, helpful, or both.  When I was contacted by Jifiti about the new IKEA Portland registry though, I knew it was something worth sharing.  
The majority of our home is furnished with IKEA items.  We registered a couple places for our wedding, but mot of the money we received went toward IKEA furniture.  How great would it have been if we could have actually registered there instead?
The registry is currently only available for the Portland, OR IKEA store.  It is perfect for weddings, baby showers, house warming parties, college graduation, or basically any occasion where you can get people to buy you sweet stuff from IKEA.  My favorite feature is the "chip-in" option.  People can choose to chip-in the amount they have available to spend on larger items.  This way, you get what you want and don't feel like you have to register for a ton of $25-$50 items just so your friends and family have something to buy in their price range.
If you sign up from a desktop computer by clicking on the below image, it will take you to the sign up page.  After you have signed up, you can start adding items from your computer or you can use the handy app on your phone that has been created for the registry.  You can also register for items at the IKEA Portland store.

They have a great FAQ page.  The registry is new and has features that may be unfamiliar to some.  All of your questions can be answered there.
A few items from the IKEA Portland website that I would immediately register for if I were getting married or moving.
Happy registering!

  1. We've outfitted many apartments with IKEA gear. Some of it has been great, some of it flimsy. But we love the high chair we bought there—it was dirt cheap (like $20) and works perfectly! We bought two so we could leave one at my parents' house, too.

    1. Yeah, I know exactly what high chair you are taking about. My parents have two for when the grand kids come over. I have considered getting rid of our expensive giant one and replacing it with one of those.
