Some questions answered in this report include:
Traditional gift registries, focused on equipping households with staple products for entertaining, are under threat from shifting consumer norms. With a higher degree of consumers getting married later in life, cohabitating before marriage, and placing less of a priority on traditional forms of home entertainment, today’s consumer is interested in registering mostly for practical products. This report focuses on how these changing norms affect the gift registries market, and how other emerging trends provide new opportunities for growth in the market. New insights about how gift registries can continue to gain further traction among consumers stem from two key observations:
Hispanic and Asian consumers are considerably more likely to create gift registries than other consumers, but are not frequently prompted to create registries for occasions that might matter to them.
Technology continues to transform the way consumers think about shopping, and how they would go about creating gift registries. Companies interested in driving more registry traffic would do well to enable consumers to create registries anytime, anywhere over the internet.
