GiftSpaces' Group Gifting Guide

Gift Registry Ideas

One of the driving ideas behind GiftSpaces is the ability to group gift, to allow your family, friends and colleagues can pitch in on gifts together.

 

Why it’s great for you

This is especially valuable if you’re a couple that has lived together for a while and has many of the smaller household basics  - group gifts allow you to splurge on bigger ticket items that you wouldn’t just go out and buy yourself.

 

Why it’s great for your gift givers

For the people buying you gifts, it takes away the hassle of coordinating group payments manually or fussing over whether to get you that vase or teapot. Everyone just goes to your registry and contributes the amount they wish towards the gift they choose – still making a meaningful impression, but keeping costs reasonable, and ensuring you get the things you really love!

 

How to create a group gift

For Multiple Gift Boards, it’s as simple as ticking the ‘Group Gift’ box when you’re adding a gift to your registry. This will allow the total value of the gift to be contributed to in increments, by anyone wishing to pitch in. For anything that comes with a price tag that you feel is too high to expect one person to buy, simply make it a group gift.

Or use our Single Gift Board Template to create one big single gift– be it a first home or trip of a lifetime – all your guests then contribute to this single gift fund.

 

Do guests need to co-ordinate to buy the gift?

Not at all. Anyone who has access to your registry can contribute to your group gifts, from your grandmother to your boss.

 

Amazing group gift ideas

The beauty of GiftSpaces is being able to add any gift you want, beyond those that you’d normally find on a traditional registry. Below are 5 genius group gift ideas to get you started:

 

HONEYMOON FLIGHTS

These are an ever-popular registry item. With all the other expenses incurred at the time of a wedding, having people pitch in to help you unwind and ease into life as a married couple is usually just what the post-wedding doctor ordered!

GARDEN LANDSCAPING OR INTERIOR DECORATING

Home is where the heart is – but as a homeowner, it’s also where you incur big costs. As a newly married couple, chances are you’re either thinking of buying a home or have been in one for a short time but are keen to make upgrades. These are fantastic gifts that really can last a lifetime.
