With an increased number of people creating personalised gift registries rather than asking for traditional gifts, it's a case of a very Merry Christmas for online registries such as OurWishingWell.com, who are predicting a bumper season for Christmas gift registries.

According to Joseph Renzi, CEO of OurWishingWell.com, 2007 has seen exceptional growth in the online gift registry sector. Since the beginning of 2007, OurWishingWell.com has seen the number of personalised gift registries created increase by 300%.

OurWishingWell.com figures support the predictions for online holiday trading, revealing that over the past year, Australia has experienced a significant increase in people creating cash gift registries for almost any occasion, compared to traditional gift giving.

This trend has led to many more Australians embracing online gift registries such as OurWishingWell.com at busy times - such as Christmas. As one of Australia's most popular online gift registries, OurWishingWell.com allows guests to contribute amounts of cash to large items, rather than purchasing a gift from a list.

Renzi says the increased popularity of online gift registries are driven by three main factors: a maturing Internet audience spending more time online; the realisation that many people already have most items that they need; many people are asking for larger gifts which are often too expensive for one person.

"OurWishingWell.com provides a unique shopping experience with the creator of the registry being able to list any items they would like - from a new iPod to a new car - and asking their friends and family to contribute cash to these gifts," said Renzi.

OurWishingWell.com has become popular with Australians as they are not limited to gifts from one store, and friends and family members from all over the world can contribute any amount to any item on the registry.

Guests have international access to the registry 24 hours a day. OurWishingWell.com supports all major currencies and is available at any time - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The site is safe, secure and free to create and customise your own personal Christmas gift registry or wishing well.
