The twist with this site is it isn’t a shop, instead it’s a ‘promise to buy’ site. And what’s one of those? The idea is simple, you create a gift list of anything you like whether it’s charity donations, honeymoon contributions or general gifts with item listings as vague or as detailed as you like, send out cards in your invitations to view your e-Wedding List, your guests are then free to shop around where ever they like giving them great savings. You, meanwhile, get a fabulous pressie without knowing the price. Set up costs £35 to the couple and free for friends and family to use.
“I wanted to create a gift list service that was not only flexible but that also put some of the joy back into the art of giving and receiving wedding gifts,” says founder Penny Parrott. “As a guest, it’s so impersonal to order a gift online and then have the store wrap it and deliver it for you in a job lot with other presents. It’s so much nicer to choose a gift and to give it to the happy couple yourself.”
