Experiential gifts are the way to go
With engagement season soon upon us (more than 40 percent of Zola couples start wedding planning between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day!), I’m prepping to give my registry spiel to many newly engaged couples. The quick talking points?
Asking for gifts isn’t greedy—Great-Aunt Jean just wants to celebrate your love with a mixer.
And 3. Don’t sleep on adding experiential gifts in the form of gift cards. Wedding guests love knowing what they’re contributing to. Giving a Fandango gift card to your favorite movie buff couple is so much more gratifying than a plain old check. Check out Zola’s latest experiential launches to register for, including (but definitely not limited to) Hulu, Uber, Home Depot, StubHub, and more.
