Gainesville, FL (PRWEB) May 01, 2013
MonkeyWish (http://www.monkeywish.com) and Evite (http://www.evite.com) have announced a strategic partnership that will make MonkeyWish’s gift registry services available on Evite.com. MonkeyWish’s universal gift registry provides a simple, free solution for Evite hosts to point invitees to the perfect birthday gift for a party’s guest of honor.
“There's a natural affinity between party hosts, guests, and gifting," said Ed Gross, Evite Director of Business Development and Monetization. “At Evite, we’re always looking for ways to enhance the party-planning experience, and we’re delighted to be able to offer MonkeyWish’s gift registry services to our community.”
“A partnership with Evite is the perfect way to alleviate the frustration of gifting for party guests, and help the guest of honor feel special,” said MonkeyWish founder and CEO Kristi Taylor. “We all love to give the perfect gift, and our goal is to put the fun back in giving.”
MonkeyWish’s gift registry will be available on Evite.com starting May 1st. After creating a birthday invitation, Evite users will be offered the option of creating a gift registry wish list. When the wish list is completed, MonkeyWish will provide a hyperlink to embed in the party invitation.
MonkeyWish is a one-of-a-kind universal gift registry, providing what most registries do not: the ability to add any item from any store for any occasion. Most online gift registries are limited to a specific retailer or genre. MonkeyWish allows members to add any item through the online site or the mobile application, which includes a UPC barcode scanner.
“Never again does anyone have to go to a party or a shower with a gift card in hand,” added Taylor. “Now, you can feel confident you are giving someone exactly what he or she wants. That feeling is priceless.”
Both Evite.com and MonkeyWish.com are completely free to use.
