Why is it important to mark a gift as purchased? How do I do it?

After you purchase your gift, find the email we sent you about your gift reservation. Click on the link and you'll be able to update your gift's status from "reserved" to "purchased." That way Babylist knows to stop sending you any emails about the gift; we'll know the process is complete. 

Also when you're marking the gift as purchased, you have the opportunity to include information which is super useful to the registrant: the retailer where you purchased the gift and the order number. Including this information makes any necessary exchanges much, much easier on the new parents.
