Birthday Gift Registry

Free Gift Registry over our lifetime has had a handful of Birthday Gift Registries. If you are confident your friends will get you some crappy gifts that you will never want how about trying to casually directing them to your gift registry website.

Sign up for a Birthday Gift Registry now!

We have lots of samples on our website that may be useful. Another concept that could be a help is that the gift list can be a checklist for what to bring for a certain occasion. A great help to this is a sample site we did for Dolcie's 70th Birthday.

Another great idea is that young Mum's or Dad's setting up a gift registry, set up a Birthday Gift Registry for young kids, toddlers or even babies. We have lots of people using it for baby showers. Please let us know if we can be an assistance to you at all for setting this up.

Another great plus Free Gift Registry has is it's pre-developed styles and backgrounds to suit your every needs.

Gift Registry by definition

Free Gift Registry, started in Australia, has seen great international growth over the past few months. The website was initially being used only really in Australia and developed by Australians, has incorporated terminology and social language into the system and it's branding. Is this a problem? If someone in the UK wanted a 'Gift Registry' they would be searching 'Gift List', and if an Australian was searching 'Glory Box' it would be 'Hope Chest' in the US. OR for a bit of fun... an eski would be a chilli-bin in New Zealand.

So what issues does this cause? - In recent research we have discovered that Canada, by far on the worlds scale is searching the terms 'gift registry'. Thanks to Google Trends, we can do this research.

As you can see on the right hand side, there is a graph that displays two lines.

The blue line is volume of keyword searched 'gift registry'.

The red line is the volume of keyword searched 'gift list'.

At the bottom you can see the break down of searching across different countries. What can be observed is that Canada is way out in front of any searches related to 'gift registry' and uk is way out in front of 'gift list'.

What Free Gift Registry endeavors to do is reach everyone around the world, no matter the language and location barrier.

No matter if you search;
...that we can provide an effective service to you that you are proud to tell your friends.

If you would like more information about Free Gift Registry or how our online gift registry service works, please contact us!

Correct .com!

Free Gift Registry has been working hard to obtain the correct .com domain name. This will mean; will be available, hopefully, very shortly.

For more information on this domain name and what it might mean for your registry, please contact us.

Remember, Free Gift Registry is the fastest growing online gift registry.

Tim Faase and Sarah Hall will be available to discuss and talk about what the gift registry provides. The team will be handing out business cards to ensure everyone remembers the address.

Myer or Store Gift Registries

Hey everyone,

This post is a quick note to express our understanding of current gift registries and how it is a change in common thinking. Gift Registry was designed to allow our guests add gifts from any store, allowing for as much or as little as you wish. See the page: How It Works.

Free Gift Registry has seen many gift registries work with store gift registries or use the store as a sale point to buy the gift.

We continue to ensure that Free Gift Registry is as seamless and helpful as possible.

Bridal Registry Team.

Card Design Service?

Dear Gift Registry users,

Would a invitation card design service help organizers? Free Gift Registry have been toying with the idea that we could offer a custom graphic design service which would involve a flat fee for design and print.

The organizers of the gift registry for say a baby shower or bridal registry can specify what they like and the wording and our skilled team of designers will produce and print your invitation cards.

Let us know what you think?

Gift Registry Team

Family/Friends Referrals?

Everyone in the world of web! Thank you... thank you for your assistance and support of Free Gift Registry.

Free Gift Registry has received 50 referrals from Family and Friends to Free Gift Registry.

Keep it up! Tell your friends :-) It's a free service, take advantage of it.

It's a perfect system for baby showers, bridal gift registry, or any gift registry in general.

Free Gift Registry.

The Only Free Gift Registry?

On recent market research, the Free Gift Registry team has learned that we are the only online Free gift registry service? If there is any out there, please let us know! :)

The point of the article is this: to ensure that our customers understand we will:
  1. not start charging money
  2. not introduce a limited free version or extended paid version
  3. be bombarded with ads
It is our top priority that the end user, customer, guest is treated well and their experience is nothing but ideal. Our online gift registry service is going to continue to serve a fantastic free service until I grow old.

Bridal gift registries continue to be a biggest type of occasion on Free Gift Registry... the type of statistic we want to keep... weddings are way to expensive.

Wednesday, June 11, 2008

Baby Shower Registry

Free Gift Registry now has some fantastic templates, styles and backgrounds available for baby shower registries. The concept of having a baby shower gift registry has been very common recently and we encourage anyone planning on throwing a party to get the gifts they really NEED. Especially just weeks before coming a mother of parents.

Examples of Baby Showers or Baby Gift Registries:
Free Gift Registry has helped over 30 families create their gift registry. Why not consider use us for your Baby Shower gift registry.

Design Award - Gift Registry

Another user of the gift registry has been awarded with a Design Award. Their gift registry has been designed using our new background images.
If you feel your wedding, bridal or baby shower gift registry should be awarded, please comment or contact us.

Themed Invitation Emails

Recently we have had a few people request that the email invitation function on the gift registry is also in the theme of their registry. We will be updating this function very shortly with also the feature to leave it as plain text.

This is especially important for bridal, baby and wedding/bridal gift registries to have consistency... an email might be the best form of inviting a guest, we want to ensure that your occasion 'look' is consistent and not branded Free Gift Registry.

What do you think? Good idea? Want more changes? ... Let us know! :)

Gift Registry

Free Gift Registry has been used in the past for a variety of reasons. Free gift registry has been used as:
  • Going away parties
  • House warming parties
  • Birthdays
  • Anniversary's
  • Check lists
  • Road trips
  • Online store
But the more common uses have been used as:
  • Baby shower
  • Kitchen tea
  • Bridal shower
  • Wedding gift registry
What have you used our gift registry for? Anything uncommon?

Free Gift Registry team.

Design Awards - Whats that about?

We love you being creative with your registries and we have all been amazed by some of the designs. The gift registry service we provide allows you to design your own theme without any real limitations (except for our banner at the top).

We are awarding specific occasion designs with Design Awards to acknowledge some fantastic efforts. Some registries that have been awarded the Design Award already are as follows:

If you think your design is worthy of a design award, let us know! Comment on this post :)

Gift Suggestions

As all the gift registry users know, we have a placeholder box on the gift page letting our users know about a gift suggestion feature. The team thought we should shed some light on what this actually means and how it will work in the future.

The gift suggestion system will automatically profile your occasion type and the kind of gifts you are after and suggest appropriate gifts that you might like. The gifts suggested won't cost the occasion organizer a thing to add on to your registry.

This feature won't be available in the short term sorry but hopefully it will be well on the way by the end of the year.

Facebook Intergration

Baby showers, weddings and bridal registries are different for everyone we have found. There are none that are the same and in how they work. We have started developing a Facebook application which will integrate with Free Gift Registry.

The application will use your existing online network to help your guests to register the gifts they want to get you.

This feature and application will be available within a month or two. Though in the meantime, let us know what you think? Worthwhile? Or a waste of time?

Keep posted.

Themed Emails

If you liked to be able to customise your gift registry page, Free Gift Registry is now going to integrate the same style you selected for you registry page as in the reminder emails that are sent to your guests.

There are parts such as the title font and background image that we can't carry into the email but it will look much better than the current plain text email.

We will leave an option for you to leave emails sent in plain text if you would rather it.



Free Gift Registry is soon to be completely multi-lingual in starting with 3 languages. This will be:

  • French
  • Spanish
  • English (US version)
The system already has global date and currency formats but language will soon be an option for you and your guests.

What do you think? Are there other languages you would like us to start with?


My name is Tim Faase, I'm sure you have meet me at some stage while using Free Gift Registry. I started this service when my fiance and myself got engaged, it's been by baby for quite a while now and the team is happy with where it is at.

Have you got any good ideas out there? Want any changes? Love or hate it?

All the best!
