When considering the wedding gifts you would like to receive from your guests, think about why an online gift list provider, such as Prezola, is a no-brainer. Ticking several boxes, including convenience, practicality and product range, a gift list is one of the best wedding decisions you'll ever make and here's why...

1. It makes life easier for your guests

In all honesty, guests are going to buy you presents whether you ask for them or not. You might as well guide them in the right direction with items you've dreamed about than end up with five toasters (oh, it happens). An online gift list like Prezola makes it super easy for guests to view and buy gifts without you having to liaise with them directly. 


2. Get the gifts you really want

Even if you're already living together, this is the perfect chance to update your home décor with things you've always wanted. Move over flatpack furniture, it's time for an upgrade. There are thousands of gifts from more than 500 top brands to choose from, so you'll find all your favourite items (and more).


3. Creating a gift list is free

With so many costs involved with wedding planning, it’s nice to know that creating a gift list with Prezola is free. You can mix gifts with experiences and charity donations all on one list, and with their free upgrade offer, you can add honeymoon funds, bespoke gifts and cash contributions too.



4. Have the experience of a lifetime

Looking for a honeymoon fund but unsure how to ask? With Prezola, you can discreetly ask for money with cash ‘gifts’ such as cocktails on the beach or flight upgrades and you receive 100% of the money in your bank account – no commission fees and no third parties. Guests will be happy buying you a gift and you’ll be happy knowing all of their contribution will go towards an unforgettable holiday.


5. It helps cure the wedding blues

Although not what you want to hear while you’re on a high planning for your wedding, but post-wedding blues are a thing. You’ll be centre of attention and whisked off your feet for the wedding, and then it’s back to reality. Luckily your wedding gifts are delivered to you free of charge after the big day, giving you and your partner something to look forward to.
