1. The Easy E-Gift

Think about all the weddings you have been too, where the couple are either given things they will never use or it doesn’t match their tastes and then there are those times when they receive the same gift multiple times. At the end of the day how many pressure cookers can you own? At some point, these presents eventually get recycled that is if they even see the light of day.

Even from the viewpoint of a guest, buying a present for a bride and groom is no easy task.  So by providing options for your guests, it actually helps them too! They know that the money spent on your wedding present will be valued, used and not passed on as a birthday present to someone else.

2. Have An Extravagant Honeymoon

In recent years, families devote so much of their time and money on planning the wedding, that often the honeymoon is neglected. To have a grand wedding and a luxurious honeymoon in one hit, is not always that easy or affordable, not to mention securing the time off work! This is where Zankyou and the cash gift list comes in, through this service you can ask guests to contribute to not just material household goods for your new home, but experiences you and your partner want to share together.
