5 Creative Uses for a Gift Registry

The SM Store Gift Registry is a great way to ensure you get the perfect gift for yourself on special occasions such as weddings, birthdays, housewarming, or anniversaries.

However, there are other unique ways to use a gift registry apart from apart from personal celebrations. Here are five unique ways to use gift registry wishlists for.

1. An act of goodwill

Ask for items that can serve as donations to your favorite charity in place of gifts. Appliances like a ground fan are a good idea. This is a great way to help a good cause and let your loved ones know what you’re passionate about.


2. Support for a new project

Create a wishlist of things that you need for a new project. This is a marvelous way for people to support you, especially if you don’t have the funds to buy the necessary tools or materials to start.

3. Home Improvement

Create a home improvement registry for a new paint job, kitchen remodels, or bathroom upgrade. This is especially helpful when you are short on budget and need to ask for help from whoever is willing to contribute so you can have the ladder or tools you require.


4. A helping hand

Use a gift registry when you need extra help with functional items but don’t have enough budget. You can thank everyone later when you can manage better.

5. Foster pet support

If you are an animal lover fostering cats and dogs and would require additional resources to take care of them, use a gift registry to ask for pet supplies, such as dry dog food or cat kibbles.


A gift registry can be used beyond special occasions. It can also be a tool to seek and receive help and support.
