Simple Wishlists for Weddings, Birthdays etc.


Are you looking for a clean and simple solution to display your wedding gift registry on your website or just want to create a wishlist for your birthday or other occasions?
WPGiftRegistry easily lets you add gifts to your wishlist and embed it anywhere with a shortcode. Each gift is displayed with an image, a title, a description, the price and a product link. More importantly, people can indicate if they already bought the gift (so nobody else does).

WPGiftRegistry comes with a nice design and is built responsively so it displays nicely on all devices.

Brilliant plugin

I was looking around for a plugin in for my upcoming wedding to make a wedding list. I came across this one and I have to say that I was very happy with it from day one. There was an update that I suggested so that a quantity of one present could be added. This was taken on board by Moritz and within a three weeks an update was released which made an already great plugin into a brilliant one.


super easy, schlicht, funktional. Wunsch Kategorien würden mir noch gefallen, aber dann würds schon wieder komplexer werden.

Perfect wishlist

Really great plugin, and great support! This wishlist is just what I needed for my weddingwebsite. It's easy to use, and you're able to choose what information you want to display about your wish. The wishlist is displayed with an elegant design, and it is easy for my weddingquests to reserve a wish and mark it as bought. Also the developers are open to suggestions, and responds to emails quickly. Overall the plugin is absolutely recommended!
