Have you heard of Wayfair.com? Well, if you’ve been under a rock like I have, I have a real treat for you. Wayfair is an online home furnishings retailer that offers 5 MILLION products from 5000 brands. You should really take a look. Three minutes into my first trip to the site, I fell in love with a chair that will be in my home soon if I have much to do with it. The styles are fantastic and the prices are right!
I was invited last week to an event to hear about the new registry services that Wayfair has launched. Now brides, grooms, and parents-to-be can set up a registry on wayfair.com in the comfort of their own home.
“Registries traditionally have focused on kitchen, bedroom and bath, often offering a limited selection of products in one style or design aesthetic,” notes Kristine Kennedy, editorial director, Wayfair. “Today’s couples are looking for home items that fit their specific lifestyles and interests. Our new registry makes it easy for people to find exactly what they want for their next stage of life—whatever that may be.”
When the Swede and I got married, we registered for some items that we still use every day. Practical items that can stand the test of time are great registry adds.
“If you need an air conditioner, ask for it. There’s nothing wrong with being practical, and people appreciate spending money on gifts they know will be useful. You don’t have to register for a vase these days, though we do sell 1,800 of those if you want one,” said Kennedy.
Two more great perks about registering on Wayfair. 1) They have a panel of design experts called “Wayfair Homemakers” that help guide registrants through the process. And 2), Wayfair offers “Wayfair Rewards” where the buyer AND the registrant get 3% back on the cost of the item.
Did I mention that there’s free shipping on most items over $69?
If you’re wondering “Where Should I Register?” I’ve got the answer for you–check Wayfair out!
