    How Hridei work

    What is a gift registry?

    A gift registry is an elegant way of sharing one’s registry with family members and friends

    How is a registry created?

    Simple, you select items from the online offerings and add them electronically to your registry page

    Who should register?

    The person who desires to share his/her registry should register. In case of a wedding, the groom and the bride should register jointly.The registry might also be opened by a friend or relative on behalf of say a couple who are celebrating an event

    How will my friends and family members learn about my registry?

    Once you upload the email ids of your friends and family members, Hridei will send them an email linking them directly to your registry

    What is ‘Group-gifting’?

    This feature enables you to add an expensive item which you desire, and several invitees can come together to give you that gift, which otherwise would have been difficult for you to either buy yourself, or for any one guest to give it to you

    How does this work?

    When you create your registry, you will be asked to identify items that you wish to add to the ‘Group-gifting’ category. You will also be asked to rank them in order of priority. Only one item will be ‘live’ at any point of time. This means that at one time, the guests can contribute only to the gift item that is highest on your group gifting priority-list. Once that gift item is paid for, the next item on your priority list, goes ‘live.’ This will carry on till all items in the ‘Group-gifting’ list are completed. You can also exercise the option of having other smaller items open in the general category

    What happens if the product remains partly unpaid?

    In ‘Group-gifting,’ sometimes it may happen that the entire amount is not paid for by guests for an item on your registry. In such a scenario, you can add the balance amount or Hridei will have a gift-certificate issued to you for the amount received so that you can buy an item of your choice from the same retailer

    How do I decide what products should be on ‘Group-gifting”?

    Typically people add aspirational products to the ‘Group-gifting’ category. These are items that are expensive and not likely to be purchased and gifted by a single individual

    Can I add products to my registry from other websites?

    We recommend that you add items that you access from our gallery. This has been done to ensure that you get genuine products from carefully vetted vendors. Hridei will keep adding new product categories after they have vetted the vendors

    How will the products be delivered to me?

    The products will be delivered by courier to you in the same way as all leading e-commerce companies do currently

    How will I know who has gifted what product?

    Hridei will provide you the identity of the person/s who gift you the products

    Who will be responsible for the product warranties?

    Product warranties will be the responsibility of the manufacturer of the products. Hridei will not be responsible for the same.

    What happens if the event for which I have created my registry gets cancelled?

    Vendor-return policies for items which have been delivered will apply. Any credits will accrue to the benefit of the registrant who will be responsible for transferring them back to the gifter.


    Who is the primary registrant?

    The primary registrant is the person who is celebrating the event or a designee, i.e., a designated person who is organizing the event for the honourees, so if the event is being organised for the golden anniversary of grandparents, they are the honourees.

    Who should be the co-registrant?

    The co-registrant can be your friend or a relative. In case of a wedding, the registrant can be the bride and the co-registrant can be the groom or vice-versa.

    Why is a co-registrant important?

    It is a beneficial feature of Hridei because in the case of a wedding, the groom and the bride will not be intimately familiar with the invitees from the other side

    Do I have to register again for creating a different registry?

    No,once you have registered for the first event, you do not need to register again for the next event. You can go ahead and create your new registry for a new event. It becomes faster and easier each time you use it

In case the price has become Rs 2750 the guest will pay Rs 2750. In case the price becomes Rs 3250 the guest will have to pay Rs 3250. The same will be applicable for all other items in the ‘Group-gifting’ category
