Don’t Swear Off A Gift Registry Just Yet

Think about a registry and what do you think? A wedding or baby shower usually comes to mind. Sure a “registry” for your birthday or your child’s birthday sounds a bit weird…but is the concept the issue or is it just the word “reg-is-try” when discussing a birthday? 

When you think about it…it is the word, not the concept.

We give gifts for many occasions so why is it that a “registry” is only mainstream for a shower or wedding? Can’t join the registry train? Let’s call it a wish list then. Be practical and thoughtful about gift giving…and Quinnd is here to help.

Quinnd is the only site combining gift registries and wish lists with thoughtful giving, gifting, and living. We want to encourage giving a loved gift to those you love. Let’s not just give any gift. Our blogs and giveaways introduce thoughtful living products and concepts for your everyday shopping collections, your wish lists & registries, and your gifts to those you really care about for their birthdays and more. We want to introduce you to companies and products that have a social purpose so if you don’t know what to give, give a gift with meaning! Now if your loved one already has their own wish list on Quinnd then get them exactly what they want!

Speaking of wish lists – Not only does Quinnd give 15% with your purchases, but we also spotlight nonprofits doing good work, tell you their story, and give you the opportunity to support them through their wish lists if you choose. Writing a check is cool, but what about knowing EXACTLY where your dollars are going. We assist charities in creating their wish lists too – we understand that nonprofits need these important products so we do everything to help them succeed.

Add any product to any of your collections any time. This way you won’t forget about them when you want to remember them most…like when someone asks you, “what do you want for your birthday?” These collections can easily convert in and out of a registry to combat getting multiples of the same gift (if you care about that sort of thing).

The purpose: bringing the meaning back into gift giving. Don’t just gift to gift.

We love seeing the different products in wish lists for yourself, your children, and even your fur children (aka pets if that wasn’t clear).

Need ideas?  Here is a wish list we are loving right now.
