MyWishList.ae

Today we would like to introduce you to the lovely ladies from MyWishList.ae, Neetu and Preeti.  Close friends since years and now partners and entrepreneurs, Neetu and Preeti have come a long way planning and buying gifts for family and friends to now managing their very own online gift registry business. 

With such a busy work lifestyle in Dubai and so many celebrations at the same time, an online gift registry is something that saves you the trip to malls when you are pressed with time! 

The ladies at MyWishList.ae has taken the gift registry planning a step notch higher. Imagine being assigned your own personal consultant who will guide you through the process once you register. You then create your very own wishlist from the partner stores. What’s more, you can even add gifts from other stores that you wish to receive on your special day! Your family and friends may contribute funds to your registry or buy the gifts for you. What's really nice about their service is that the funds you collect is then converted either into MYWISHLIST Gift Vouchers or a prepaid debit card that you can use at your convenience! That's amazing!

We had an opportunity to work with Neetu and Preeti for their brand new business and press portraits and we receive first hand information on how these ladies support and encourage each other :) 

See some of the images from our session as well as our interview with these two online savvy entrepreneurs!

  What is the inspiration behind your business?    Neetu:  My inspiration comes from a personal experience when I was getting married almost 2 years back. I wanted to create a gift registry where I was not restricted to any specific stores and a registry that provided me with the flexibility and service that I required. I came across a few registries across the globe, but was not what I was looking for. At that point I realized that Dubai was missing out on a fun and hassle-free gifting and decided to introduce it here.

  Could you share us your expert advice on possible gift trend for 2015?    Preeti:  We have noticed a reasonable increase in the amount that an average guest is willing to put in for a gift. Moreover, people are now opting for online shopping versus going to a physical store mainly because they are more pressed on time these days. And when it comes to going around in a shopping mall and picking up a gift for someone he/she may or may not like, becomes more of a hassle than pleasure. Having an opportunity to pick a gift selected by the host is more fun and hassle-free. And an online payment makes it super easy and less time consuming for people.    Neetu:  Another growing trend we noticed in the gift industry is the Cash Registry. In this modern day where most of the couples are already staying together before they are married don’t really need home décor and furnishing items as gifts. In the end all they want as a wedding gift is a beautiful honeymoon package. That’s where Mywishlist.ae brings in a Cashlist registry. Creating a cash registry helps them put in those funds towards something more meaningful such as honeymoon package, home-buying funds, or even future child’s education.
