Many couples already have their own homes and things before they marry so quite often all the bases that a gift registry is supposed to cover is already accounted for. And really, how many cutlery sets and Nigella Lawson jars do you need? Oxfam Unwrapped do their own gift service which is similar to some of the ‘good gift’ sites I’ve mentioned before.
Your guests chooses a gift and a giftcard. Tha happy couple gets the card and the people who really need it get the gift. Gifts, starting at £8, include goats, cows, safe water, tree planting and a class teacher for a month. You can even help women in refugee camps by saved from violence.
