Another amazing idea that not only helps you AND your guests by making registering and purchasing wedding gifts easy. How can that happen? Well...by putting everything in ONE place.
Traditional wedding registries assume you are the kind of person that shops at one store. (Who does that?) Thankful Registry lets you add gifts from anywhere. That's right...anywhere. Etsy? No problem. Your favorite obscure online retailer? Easy. You can even add things like charity donations, gift cards, fun experiences, memberships, or subscriptions to your registry. Plus, guests have the option to use PayPal Checkout to send money online at their discretion. I love the quote from Thankful Registry's found, Kathy Cheng, saying, "Anything goes, and that's the way it should be. People have so many passions, interests and things they care about. Why shouldn't friends and family give more creative, personal, and useful gifts?"
Thankful Registry is also really easy to use - you grab items using a toolbar button, kind of like with Pinterest - and highly customizable. You can upload a cover photo to your page, assign feature gifts, and even include notes about how you plan on using a gift or why a specific charity is meaningful to you. Basically, you can show how much thought you have put into your registry, which in turns encourages your guests to put more thought into what they are buying you.
One place to house your registry and one place for your guests to go? Easy. Sign me up.
Tech continues to change every single day, but my favorite pieces of new technology has to be the ones that continue to make lives simple.
