Gifty helps you make your own gift registry that’s not tied to a specific store, so you and your guests can choose gifts from wherever you want.
Gifty only costs $25 and is very easy to use. And there’s no sign-up process for your guests, so it’s dead simple for them to use too.
You create a Gifty registry and type in the gifts you’d like. You can add details and link to a website if you want.
Your guests go to your registry, choose a gift, and click to cross it off once they’ve bought it.
You and your fiancé get married and live happily ever after. (View who bought what for sending thank-you cards.)
Gifty was designed and created by Ben Hoyt. Here’s how Gifty began, in his own words:
When Franci and I got married in 2005, people gave us a lot of presents. That was lovely, of course, but there was a slight “problem” — we ended up with about 25 platters, 19 towels, and 4 toasters.
So when my brother got married, I thought I’d solve the Toaster Problem once and for all. And thus Gifty was born.
Since then, Gifty has been used and enjoyed by many couples in New Zealand and around the world.
And yes, the photo at the top really is Franci going down a flying fox (zip-line) in her wedding dress.
Bevan and Elrike: “We received no double-ups! We’re busy with our thank-you cards now and Gifty makes this job easier by reminding us who gave us which gift. All very cool, thanks a million!”
Hayden and Marie: “Gifty meant we didn’t have to restrict our registry to a single store, which enabled us to list a broader range of gifts and also gave our guests more choice on where to shop.”
Joseph and Alesha: “It’s a fantastic site, nice and simple, which is great because even my grandparents will be able to navigate it easily!”
Andrew and Rachael: “It’s great that guests can just go straight to the website, without having to enter personal details.”
Simon and Lizzie: “Gifty is exactly what we were looking for — now all we have to do is think about what we want on the list.”
