How to Ask for the Gift of Experience

June 05, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 202

We've all heard the saying - money can't buy happiness. Filling your home with clothes and knick-knacks won't make you as happy as you think. But new experiences and memories will as they can benefit you in the future.. Spending money on experiences and bigger goals and dreams actually makes us more content than filling our homes with more things. Experiences and bigger dreams are the perfect gifts for newly engaged couples.

To tactfully ask for experiences, a cash gift registry has all the tools needed to build your custom cash wedding registry. Not all guests are familiar with the idea of a cash gift registry, so it's important to set up your site so that guests understand the idea behind giving the gift of experiences with personal anecdotes and details about your plans.

There are endless options to add to your registry, from honeymoon travel, to hobbies to date nights:

· Lessons: Continue learning and growing as a couple! Golf lessons, cooking workshops, dance classes - you're never too old to learn something new.

· Hobbies: Whether you love gardening in the backyard or Scuba diving off the coast, extra funds to support your hobbies are a perfect gift.

· Vacation: Where have you always dreamed of going? Add travel costs, hotels, and activities to your last to make your dream vacation come true. Example: For a romantic vacation, your friends and family can help sponsor a candlelight dinner and spa get-away for you and your special one. These extra funds might come in handy, which can help you plan a special and memorable vacation.

· Anything else: What do you really want to do that you never had time for or never had the funds for? Now is your chance. This is the opportunity to cross one more thing off your bucket list.

With an alternative gift registry, you have all the tools needed to get exactly what you want. There's no reason to feel confined by the traditional registry. If you don't want towels, dishware, or appliances, you should be able to ask for what you'd really like. Nothing creates incredible life-long memories like new and exciting experiences. Wouldn't your guests prefer to give the happiness that comes with memories instead of china that you'll hardly use? There's a simple way to make it happen without being impolite. Alternative registries let your guests take part in making amazing memories and embarking on a new part of your life.

Dana Ostomel is the founder and Chief Gifting Officer of the cash wedding registry site: Deposit a Gift. She works closely with her users to ensure they are able to craft the perfect gift list for them. Years before Dana got married, she wondered how anyone could store so many presents-and even if they could, how they had the time to unwrap, return (often), track and use them all. Her marketing background led her to believe she could simplify the registry process-and not just for weddings, but for any big gifting event. And so Deposit a Gift, the next generation gift registry, was born.
