Here is a sample message for a gender-neutral baby registry greeting:

Thanks for visiting our baby registry! This registry is for baby (last name of parents-to-be). We are waiting to find our baby’s gender until they are born, so any items you purchase should be gender-neutral.

Thanks for showering our family with love!
