Five Gift Registries That Allow You To Register For Whatever You Like

by | Bride, Wedding Gifts


Continuing on with our gift registry roundups, today we’re rounding up five gift registries that allow you to register for whatever you like. If you’re a couple with a taste that doesn’t fit into an online store kind of box, or you’re looking to add items from many places to one registry for guests then this roundup is for you!

1. The Gift Aisle

The Gift Aisle Australian Wedding Regsitry

The Gift Aisle is an Australia (hooray) online gift registry which allows you to add items from anywhere – online stores and bricks and mortar stores. Sign up to get your own custom URL which you pass on to your guests, select your theme and customise it. Then, get uploading! To add an item to your registry, just upload a photo, fill out the description and you’re good to go. The Gift Aisle either allows guests to purchase the items directly or holds the contributions for you (allowing you to withdraw it) so that once the wedding is complete, you can buy those registry items.

What I Love:

I love that The Gift Aisle is an Australian based business with a team always available to help you out! Guests can also choose to buy the entire gift or just make a contribution.

2. Thankful Registry

Thankful Registry is all about creating a registry that truly reflects you. The website allows you to add products from online stores that you love. A click on the gift idea, redirects guests to the product’s website, marking the item off your registry and providing your guest with your mailing address. You can also add items like honeymoon suggestions or house fund contributions.

What I Love:

The design – upload a photo of you and your beloved and it looks sleek, chic and well designed. Thankful also has a bookmarklet functionality, so when you’re cruising your favourite sites you can add items to your registry with a click of a button.

3. Envelope Registry (ed’s note: sorry this one’s now closed – hope you enjoy our other gift registry suggestions!)

Another Australian (hooray!) Envelope Registry revolves around the concept that asking guests for money can be awkward, so the website works off the idea that guests are gifting you moments. For instance, wish for a cooking class and guests can buy a meal, or two or three. Wish for fancy coffee and guests can contribute one cup or 100. The system has over 200 ideas for you to choose from. The funds are then collected by Envelope Registry who deposit them to you upon conclusion of your wedding.

What I Love:

With bonus points for being Australian, Envelope Registry also has a chic design which makes each registry look like a custom built website. I love that it allows guests to use your registry as a virtual guestbook and pulls in your wedding images via a hashtag for extra fun!

4. Not Another Toaster

Australian based Not Another Toaster does what it says on the tin! By allowing you to upload photos and descriptions of the products you love, guests are able to “buy” the items off the registry. Choose whatever products you like- from online and offline stores. The choice is yours! Not Another Toaster collects this lump sum for you and deposits it into your bank account soon after the wedding.

What I Love:

The live feed of recent purchases is slightly addictive to watch, but I also love that guests can buy via the website, fax or over the phone (because not everyone likes shopping online!).

5. Simple Registry

Simple Registry

Simple Registry allows you to simply create a registry that suits your needs. Add items from anywhere, split items into multiple contributions, create your custom URL and share away! Once the wedding is over, the money guests have given for gifts will be transferred to you (via Paypal for Australians). It really is that easy!

What I Love:

Simple Registry has a nifty mobile app that allows you to take photos of items and add them to your registry when you’re out and about. The added bonus of a bookmarklet means you can add directly from your browser too. Guests can even suggest gifts to add!
