What is Marriage Gift List?
Marriage Gift List is an online management system that allows you to create a list of gifts from any online store for your guests to view and buy from. The system will manage the list as gifts are purchased so you don’t end up with any duplicate gifts.
You are also able to customise the gift list your guests will see by adding some personal information and choosing one of our excellent themes.
Best of all the entire system is FREE to use for both couples and guests!
How does Marriage Gift List work?
Once you register for free you are able to set up a Gift List using links from any online retailer. When you find a gift you would like purchased for you, simply copy the web address (URL) and add it onto your list. You are able to do this with as many items as you like.
Guests login to your list and browse the gifts you have added. If a guest decides to purchase a gift, they are redirected to the website selling the gift where they complete the purchase. Finally, the guest must return to Marriage Gift List to confirm their purchase. The purchased gift is then removed from the list, to ensure that you don't receive the same gift more than once.
Why use Marriage Gift List?
Marriage Gift List is unique in that you can select items from ANY online store. We don’t limit you to using one store, so if you want gifts from Amazon, Debenhams, Argos or even a lesser known company, you can manage them all in one place.
Marriage Gift List is also completely FREE of charge for both couples and guests!
How much does Marriage Gift List cost?
Marriage Gift List is a free service and there is no charge for either couples or guests.
We can afford to offer this service by attempting to monetise the links provided by referral commissions we receive from some of the companies you may add a gift from. This referral commission does not impact either the couple or the guest.
What about delivery?
Delivery charges are dependent on the individual retailer. We have no say in any delivery charges or delivery times as when a guest clicks a "Buy" button on your list, they will be redirected to the retailer's website. If the guest purchases the gift from the retailer, then the agreement is between the person who made the purchase and that individual store.
You are required to submit some delivery instructions before opening your list, so that your guests know how to get your gifts to you.
How do I add a gift to my Gift List?
Once you have found a gift (from any online store) that you would like to add to your list, copy the web address (URL) for the page. In the Gifts section of your list, there is a button labelled ‘Add new gift’ - once you click this, a new window will appear that will allow you to paste in the web address of the item.
After you submit the gift's URL, we try to scan it's web page and automatically extract the gift title, price and images. We cannot always locate the correct details on the page so you are advised to check the information yourself and edit it where necessary.
How do I add a portrait photo to my Gift List?
If you would like to add a photo of yourselves to your list then you can do so by navigating to list setup portrait.
How can I preview my Gift List?
You can log into your own list in exactly the same way that guests do (either by navigating to the list URL driectly, or from the main Marriage Gift List website). You can do this at any stage to experience what your guests see when they log in to your list.
How can I change the theme or style of my Gift List?
There are several different list themes/styles for you to choose from witin list setup theme.
Please note: This will only change the theme of your actual gift list and not the theme of your list management area.
How can I submit my personal details?
You may update your basic profile such as age, address and telephone number from the account section.
What are Gift List invitation cards?
Gift list invitation cards are pre-filled with your list ID and list URL, so are an easy way of telling your guests how to access your Gift List. The cards are presented in several styles that each compliment the different list themes availabel. You can download any set of cards at any time - you can even choose a different theme for the cards than you chose for your list!
What is a ‘List Manager’?
Our Gift Lists are designed to be very user-friendly, but we recommend that you nominate a "List Manager" to assist anyone who is having difficulty.
By nominating someone else to act as your List Manager, you wont know "who" might be buying "what" until you receive your gifts!
Your List Manager should be computer-literate so that they can assist guests who may not be familiar with using a website.
The List Manager should be available by phone and/or e-mail to answer any of your guests’ queries about specific gifts, or the Gift List itself.
