GiftSmart.lk introduced the Wishlist – the only free online gift registry where the users can list their wedding, birthday, anniversary and other gift wishes from over 100 shops in Sri Lanka.
The gift registry is part of GiftSmart.lk’s mission to “bring back the joy of gifting” by facilitating the gift search and shopping process for the gift givers, while helping their recipients get the gifts they desire.
The Wishlist was released at the peak of the wedding season aiming to conquer Sri Lanka’s wedding registry market. However, GiftSmart.lk Product Director Channa De Silva said that the feature is guaranteed to bring great value not only to the newlyweds, but any host of an event that traditionally calls for gifting.
“We created the Wishlist to initiate a dialog between the hosts and their guests,” said De Silva.
“It is a channel where the host’s wishes can be communicated, leaving the guests feeling confident that they have brought their loved ones closer to what they truly desire.”
To create their Wishlist, users need to visit the GiftSmart.lk website and create a Wishlist page. The pages are customizable and allow the users to sustain the aesthetic of their celebration or wedding theme. They can include event details such as time and venue and finally. They can list any number of desired items or services from over 100 leading merchants in Sri Lanka.
Users can share their Wishlist via email, social media or simply include their unique URL in the event invitations. By visiting the users’ Wishlist, guests can immediately contribute by creating a GiftSmart Card – a personalized greeting card with a value of choice – in the full or a partial value of any listed gift.
Guests can print their GiftSmart Card and present it at the event, keeping the traditional sentimental value of tangible gifts that remain as souvenirs of a moment and affection. According to De Silva, that is what makes GiftSmart Cards “the perfect gift for any occasion”.
“We gift to embed ourselves into the lives of our loved ones,” he said. “We want to play a role in their happiness by helping them get closer to their dreams, but we also want to leave a lasting memory of our moments together. Gifts don’t have to be a trade-off between one or the other - that is what we firmly believe in and that is why GiftSmart.lk came
