By now you should know our longtime sponsor Traveler’s Joy helps you skip the blender and register for the thing you actually want… the honeymoon. You should even be super-familiar with the concept of a honeymoon registry — they’ve been around for a while now. (Hell, Traveler’s Joy has been with Offbeat Bride since 2010!) But are you familiar with the fact that groups (like, say your coworkers, or a cluster of cousins) can work together when gifting through your Traveler’s Joy registry? Group gifting: this is happening.
With group gifting, it’s easy to divide the cost of expensive items into manageable portions. A private sunset sailboat trip that costs $300 could be split into three $100 gifts, or one $200 gift and five $20 gifts. Since many honeymoon items can lean toward being pretty expensive, we foresee lots of couples wanting to highlight this new feature.
Gather your group of friends around — be they starving artists, your nonprofit coworkers, or just plain ol’ not sure what to get you — and introduce them to the concept of group gifting…
Who can go in on group gifts?
Anyone just about anywhere in the world who has a valid Visa, MasterCard, or Discover credit card. Along with accepting gifts from these cards, Traveler’s Joy now has more payment options than ever before: starting in 2015, all Traveler’s Joy couples will also be able to accept honeymoon gifts via cash or check. This method will be 100% FREE to both the member and gift-giver. Plus, if one of your guests have any technical glitches getting in on the group gifting, Traveler’s Joy will work with them to facilitate the process.
How do you split up the cost of an expensive item?
Traveler’s Joy makes this easy. When you add an item to your registry, you will always see an updating “Total Amount” value. You can set “Cost Each” and “Quantity” in any combination which provides the desired total. For example, if you are registering for a $1,000 hotel stay, you could set “Cost Each” at $100 and “Quantity” to 10. Setting “Cost Each” at $50 and “Quantity” to 20 would also yield the same total amount. You have total flexibility. Setting up your expensive items as multiple gifts of smaller amounts makes it easy for your friends and family to give you a piece of an item or experience.
Will this cost the gift-givers anything?
Your guests pay nothing extra to group gift. If you put a $100 gift on your registry, it will cost your guests exactly $100 to purchase it.
