BOSTON, July 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Wayfair.com, the largest online retailer of home furnishings, has just made it easier for brides, grooms and parents-to-be to register for the gifts that best fit their lifestyle needs. Offering an unparalleled selection of 5 million products from more than 5,000 brands, wayfair.com is the one-stop shop for anything and everything related to the home. It is now possible to build a registry to suit any style or budget all in one easy step.
"Registries traditionally have focused on kitchen, bedroom and bath, often offering a limited selection of products in one style or design aesthetic," notes Kristine Kennedy, editorial director, Wayfair. "Today's couples are looking for home items that fit their specific lifestyles and interests. Our new registry makes it easy for people to find exactly what they want for their next stage of life—whatever that may be."
In addition to offering design and decor products for every room in the home, Wayfair's registry service uniquely offers items from many other lifestyle categories, such as Home Improvement, Outdoor Recreation, Garage, Patio and Fitness. From furniture and flooring to gas grills and greenhouses, power drills and picture frames to closet storage and kitchen sinks, registrants have the freedom to select gifts that meet their actual needs. Wayfair.com streamlines the selection process to guide registrants to the gifts they want most across all categories.
"If you need an air conditioner, ask for it. There's nothing wrong with being practical, and people appreciate spending money on gifts they know will be useful. You don't have to register for a vase these days, though we do sell 1,800 of those if you want one," said Kennedy.
To help guide registrants through the process, wayfair.com enlisted the expertise of its Wayfair Homemakers, a panel of design experts featured on the company's blog, My Way Home, to create a comprehensive guide of top product picks covering everything from useful must-haves to fabulous finishing touches.
Further features include Wayfair Rewards, a loyalty dollars program where both the registrant and buyer receive 3% back to be used toward future purchases, as well as free shipping on most orders over $69, including extra-large or heavy items like furniture or appliances, which can help save hundreds of dollars.
