A couple of tips;

  • Select items of a varying range of prices to accommodate your guests who will have various budgets.
  • Don't be shy to put a couple of big-ticket items on your list; your parents might be looking for a meaningful gift or groups of friends sometimes like to club together to get a bigger gift.
  • Two registries is fine especially if you have a favourite store but also want the accessibility and range of a department store like Myer, David Jones or Peters of Kensington.
