When you think of a gift registry, what's the first thing that comes to mind?

If you’re anything like me, you probably think of a newly engaged couple walking through a department store. Equipped with a hand scanner, they meticulously select the perfect set of dishes, hand towels, and the shiny new appliance of the season.

But what happens if you already live with your soon-to-be spouse and already have accumulated all of the household goods that you need?

Maybe a wedding is the furthest thing from your mind and instead, you’re planning a birthday party or graduation celebration. Have you ever considered a registry for these types of registered events? This is exactly what sets Celebration Wishes apart!

Step 4.
When you see an item you’d like to add to the registry, select it to personalize the contribution amount.

You can also add an item description, change the name of the item, as well as the quantity and amount you’d like to request.

You can also mark it as purchased if you get a contribution to your registry that’s received directly. For example, if a grandparent gives you cash for that birthday massage you’ve been waiting for.
