How can I add unique, non-traditional services or other gifts that can’t be bought in-store or online like babysitting, photography, home-cooked meals, etc?

About "Help & Favors" coupons

We offer a selection of pre-designed coupons, from "Dog Walking" to "Used Baby Clothes," but you can also select the "Blank Coupon" and make it be anything. 

If you want to register for monetary donations, our cash funds are a better fit than the blank coupon! Please see the "Cash Funds" section of our FAQ's to find our how you can do this.

Instructions for customizing coupons:

  1. Edit the coupon you have added to your registry.
  2. Delete the coupon's previous name, and write down whatever coupon name you would like. 
  3. Change the quantity to however many of the item you'd like (the default quantity is one). If you leave the quantity blank, the item will remain on your list no matter how many people reserve it!
  4. Put a note so the gift giver understands exactly what you’re asking for (it pays to be clear).
