How Our Registry Works
You can have a registry live in just minutes!
1. Register and Create Your Gift List Online
Create a registry - Just fill in a few relevant personal details and select a password for your account. Add a personal touch to your gift list with an optional photo and message to your guests.
Select your gifts - Then select gifts directly from our website catalogue. Your gift list is live and ready for purchases from this point, but you’ll also have options for adding other types of gifts.
Visit our partners physical shops or their websites for access to infinitely more gift items *
- Select a premade gift template as a base, and add/delete gifts to customize
- Add a cash Wishing Well fund* towards anything you can think of- Honeymoon fund, furniture fund, college education fund for baby, etc..
- Add gifts of charity*
- Add non-merchant gifts* from any shop anywhere in the world
- Ask Double Happiness to help you source something special *
Edit your gift selection at any time throughout the registry process. We also have a HOLD function* to suspend ordering of any particular gift until you confirm it in case you are not sure of the gift. The amount of the gift will remain in your credit account until confirmed.
Gifts from partner merchants shops/websites Should you select gifts by visiting our partners physical shops or their company websites, the pricing will be the same RRP (retail price as given by the brand/shop). You should allow up to one week for gifts to be live on your gift list using this method, as there will be a confirmation process involved for us to obtain or confirm the item numbers, pricing and other details and then have the gifts uploaded to your gift list.
Wishing well cash gifts, custom sourced gifts, and non-merchant gifts incur a 12.5% handling fee. This fee is automatically included before being published to your gift list. We will remit the net amount of these types of gifts to you by cheque or TT transfer at the close of your registry. For non-merchant gifts, you may then proceed to self-purchase these gifts..
Gifts of Charity Double Happiness’ registry also allows you to receive gifts donated in your name to your favorite charity. We at Double Happiness will remit the full amount received in our accounts by your guests to the charity specified. An official receipt from the charity will be issued and posted to you.
HOLD Gifts If you are undecided about the gifts selected, or have selected a set that you wish to have fully bought before confirming it, you may choose to HOLD some or all gifts in your list. This means when a HOLD gift is bought, we will not proceed to order the gift, but instead will keep the amount in credit for you to allocate at a later time to any gift from any merchant in our catalogue. Your guests cannot see if a gift is marked a HOLD.
2. Create an optional complementary personalized website
Choose to create a free personalized website as a ‘cover’ page to your gift list, making it easier for you to share your event with your guests. You will be able to add details, text and photos about the event and yourselves, use our RSVP tool, and link directly to your gift list. See a sample You can choose to add this personalized website on at any time throughout your registry, but we do recommend that if you plan on having it, that you complete it before announcing your gift list.
3. Announcing your Gift List/ Website
Once your gift list is ready, let your guests know!
You can announce your registry:
- On Facebook directly from our site
- With announcement cards ordered from us to insert in your invitations (cost is refunded to you at close of registry)
- By including your direct URL link on printed invitations, or by email
Now leave it to us while your guests purchase from your gift list. We will manage the registry process for you and liase with your guests if they have queries on products or payments. You can access your registry home anytime by logging in to your account. There you have access to all functions of your registry- manage your gift list, update your personalized website, view purchase history, view card messages, and track rsvps.
5. Closing of Your Gift List
Your gift list will remain open for a further 14 days after your event date to accommodate any last minute purchases by your guests. The list will no longer be viewable by guests after it is closed.
You may self purchase any gifts remaining on your gift list at a 15% discount. (Excluding non merchant gifts, gift vouchers, cash gifts, gifts of charity, and electrical appliances.)
6. Receiving Your Gifts
You will be contacted by Double Happiness shortly after the close of your gift list to confirm delivery details. We aim to deliver all registries in a single consignment roughly 4 weeks after the date of your event. Please note that we make every effort to have your gift items ready during this time frame, but in certain instances there may be delays due to import/ordering times of certain gifts, or stocking situations from our Merchants which are beyond our control.
One consignment delivery is offered complementary for all gift lists to all Hong Kong addresses, with the exception of Tung Chung and Outlying Islands.
7. Thank Your Guests
Using our Purchases Summary function, you can download to one document all the information you need to write your thank you cards.
8. Lifetime Account
When you create an account with Double Happiness, it doesn’t close when your Gift List closes. You can open multiple gift lists for running at the same time, or at different times, for all the important events in your life. For example, create a Wedding Gift Registry, then when you begin a family- a Baby Registry, then years later -a Vow Renewal Ceremony list.
You will receive special and exclusive offers from time to time for registrants only.
