    • As soon as anyone contributes toward gift, you can gain access to the gift and withdraw funds (any time - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week)

    • Some people have a physical "wishing well" (a well that people guests put money into) at the actual event - the problem with this is that there can sometimes be a large amount of money at the event and someone needs to take responsibility for all this money at the event and after the event - this can cause a very stressful time for some of your loved ones - with OurWishingWell, all the gifts are stored as money online so that no one needs to worry about the money at the event

    I was moving into a new house and was planning to throw a house warming party. However, we wanted to do something different so we decided to set up a gift registry for the house warming party. At first the idea sounded weird but then we went with it. We created a gift registry and add all the things we might need in our new house. Thanks to Our Wishing Well we were even able to email the URL of the gift registry to all the friends and family who were coming over for the house party. Surprisingly we got all the items which we needed for our new house through the registry. I highly recommend Our Wishing Well to anyone planning to create a gift registry.

    My sister was pregnant and they had organized baby shower. I was desperate to be there but due to some work commitments, I was touring abroad. However, with the help of wishing well, I was able to send a baby shower gift for my sister. The best part gifting from this site is that you get options to pay in your currency and the receivers the best thing they wanted. Itís a win win situation for everyone as you send your gift and the receiver got something that they really wanted and picked out themselves.

    I am very happy with the service of Our Wishing Well and I have recommended it to friends. I have also had feedback from friends who have received my invitations with the registry note and they seem to be pleased that they can purchase items where ever they like, they also do not feel obliged to buy a gift off the registry which I am happy about, it leaves the choice up to them. It is one of the best discoveries I've ever made! The site is so well thought out and very personal. The perfect solution to any registry!

    My sister was getting married and had created a gift registry. She emailed me the URL to me which I liked a lot. I mean sending mails is quite a convenient thing to do and let others know about the registry. I decided to check out the registry. I must say it was a perfect set-up gift registry with tons of options to use with. I had the chance to buy them things they want to start their family. After using their gift registry, one thing I am very sure of, I am also creating my wedding gift registry on Our wishing well.

    Ahead of our engagement, me and my fiancťe decided to do things differently by creating a gift registry at Our Wishing Well. Without sounding too crude, we wanted our guests to give us cash gifts, which we planned to use for buying a couple of things that we really needed. Thanks to Our Wishing Wellís online gift registry, it was a cakewalk!

    We were planning a move to a new home in Switzerland and decided to set up an online housewarming gift registry at Our Wishing Well, which helped us list all things that we needed for our new home, and which our guests could gift us. Generating a wish list was easy and quite exciting as we were able to include the list of things that we urgently needed. Even our friends and relatives contributed with enthusiasm to help us buy the things that our new home needed. Thank you Our Wishing Well

    On my friendís recommendation, I decided to opt for Our Wishing Well to create a wedding gift registry for my cousin. Although I was apprehensive in the beginning, I was soon impressed by the sheer ease and features that the website offered. Thanks to this wedding gift registry, my cousinís wedding was probably the most cost-effective wedding I have ever witnessed. At the end of it all, everyone, starting from the guests to my cousin and her husband were very happy and satisfied

    When I was planning my baby shower, I kept wondering about how expensive it would be to move back all the gifts I receive from the venue to my home. Thatís when a friend suggested Our Wishing Well and after I checked out the website, I was pretty impressed with the gift registry options and decided to give it a go. I enjoyed using the website as setting up my wish list was fast after creating an account, and everything was simple and easy to use. My event was a great success and I saved considerably as I didnít have to move back truckloads of gifts. Continue doing the good work, Our Wishing Well!

    My advice to anyone using these kind of registries would be to thoroughly check the charges and terms (ie the small print) before signing up, and before sending the web address to all your family and friends.

    We didn't follow this advice with ourwishingwell.com and it's ended up being quite expensive. The charges are quite hidden away and the site goes to some lengths to explain how (almost) everything is "free".

    For gifts under 100 pounds (UK) the "guest" pays a 5% charge, and for withdrawals under 5000 pounds the "host" pays 5%. The charges are slightly lower for higher values payments, but all our transactions were within the above categories, so we ended up paying almost 10% (9.75% for the mathemeticians) on our wedding gifts.

    This was because we opted to pay the guest charges as well (imagine your friend having to pay a charge to give you a gift!!!).

    Either way, 10% of the money goes to the site, and 10% is a lot, considering that you can do bank transactions online for free. Frankly, ourwishingwell.com are laughing all the way to the bank. A shop would never charge you like that to use their wedding list service.

    So feel free to use these kind of registry sites if you wish to, but please make sure you are aware of the charges. Once the web address has been sent out with the invitation it's difficult to change your mind.
