Gift registry

Hello,

Can anyone recommend a gift registry.

We were going to use Debenhams but they have shut the service, along with reduction in sale of vouchers I wonder if this is a means to an end.

I liked Debenhams as the branded stuff was affordable, but their own stuff was well priced.

We dont want any experiences, or honeymoon options, or online cash option, just a modest list of well priced gifts.

I have looked at John Lewis, and the same items are up to 20 more than on Debenhams. I was hoping for most to be 20/30 which just doesn't work for JL

Im interested in bedding, towels, homewares and kitchenwares specifically.

Im not sure where to look, I dont want people to be paying more for the same gift.

Prezola and The Wedding Shop are two bespoke wedding lists but they do tend to have some more high end products. Ive gone with Prezola because I can have a honeymoon list on there (we already live together and dont need anything for the house), you can make an account for free so could always make an account and have a look for things. Otherwise unless you look at Harvey Nicks etc. Im not sure of any other department stores (other than John Lewis) that will do them.

Have you thought about Amazon? We had John Lewis as ours but that was 8 years ago, it was a fab service but I think their pricing gap has increased since then unfrotuantly.

That's not a bad idea! I didn't know they had one. JL is crazy expensive

Thanks, I've had a look at these, but unfortunately the gifts are pricier than I feel comfortable requesting. Its the uplift that gets me, why is the same Jamie Oliver item 40 at Debenhams or 62 at Prezola?

House of fraser all seem to have stopped doing them

Wonder if they aren't used as much any more?

I think most wedding lists are honeymoon lists now so I imagine actual tangible gifts have fallen a little out of favour perhaps? I think amazon is a great idea! Or instead of a list you could ask for gift vouchers for a few different stores perhaps?
