Gift Registy FAQ
How do I find a specific registry?
You can search for a registry under the registrant's last name. Your search will go faster if you also have the registrant's first name and date of event. Please note that some registrants prefer not to post their registry online. If you are unsuccessful in locating your registrant online, you can obtain a copy of a current registry by fax or mail. You can also access all registries in our Chicago CB2 stores. Or call us at (800) 606-6252, 24 hours a day.
What should I do if the registrant has received everything?
Most of our registrants indicate on their registries that they'd also like CB2 Gift Cards. Just look for a link at the bottom of their registry and see if this preference has been indicated. If you purchase a gift that's not on the registry, you'll need to provide us with the registrant's shipping address. If you don't have access to the address, call us at (800) 606-6252, 24 hours a day, and we will retrieve it from our files for you.
When will the registrant receive my gift?
In-stock items should arrive to the registrant's address via Standard Delivery in 3–5 business days (M-F). View delivery options and rates.
Will my gift be wrapped?
CB2 gift purchases arrive in one of our shipping boxes with colorful gift tissue and a personalized gift message at no extra charge when you include a gift message at Checkout. As a courtesy, any item(s) selected including a gift message will not have prices displayed on the product or on the packing slip.
Can I purchase a gift item online that is currently on backorder online?

Your registry will remain active for eighteen months after your event date. If you need to access it after that, call us at 800.606.6252 24 hours a day. Just give us your name, co-registrant's name (if applicable), registry number (if available), and date of event.
What if I get duplicates of a gift?
While our system updates your registry within 15 minutes not immediately, the occasional duplicate purchase may occur. If this happens we will gladly allow return or exchange of the gift. Some reasons you might receive duplicates:
- Online purchases may be indicated on your registry more quickly than a store or call center purchase - sometimes just by minutes.
- A guest may not have requested an updated copy of your registry.
- After making a purchase, a guest may decide to give a different gift without notifying us.
What is the "share my registry" feature?
"share my registry" is an email feature that allows cb2.com registrants to notify friends and family of their upcoming event. If you opt to participate, you'll provide us with an email list of recipients who will receive our pre-written event message. This email includes a convenient link to take recipients directly to your registry.
Can I register for CB2 Gift Cards?
Absolutely. Just indicate on your registry that you'd like to receive Gift Cards. Many guests would like to give Gift Cards, but would feel more comfortable doing so if they knew it was an option you had requested. Gift Cards are also a good backup to have in case your registry reaches completion, and a guest isn't sure what you'd like.
