Making a wish
Posted by Anna Macoboy
Introducing the Mr Sparrow Wish List! Inspired by regular customers asking me for ideas for their partners, and also my friends wanting to set up a sort of registry for their recent wedding, I have introduced a registry or "wish list" service. It's not just for weddings, but for birthdays, Christmas, engagement parties...anything! Rather than just sending your loved ones blindly into Mr Sparrow, you can now send them confident in the knowledge they'll be handed a list of all your favourite things at Mr Sparrow! They'll be relieved because all the hard work is done for them (but they still have some options), and you can rest easy that you'll be getting a gift you'll love!
Sound like something you might like? Here's how it works:
Creating a wish list with Mr Sparrow is easy – just pop into the shop some time and we will show you how to record the items you would like registered.
Choosing gifts isn’t always as easy as you might think, so we are happy to help you out with ideas and assist you with creating your wish list.
You don’t have to complete your wish list in one go – you’re welcome to come back as many times as you like to add to your list or to make changes, provided the item has not already been purchased.
Once your service has been set up, we’ll provide you with lovely printed cards to include with your invitations. Your guests can then pop into Mr Sparrow to receive a list of your chosen gifts. Once they have made their selection, we will record their purchase so that after the occasion you will have a complete list of which guest purchased each item. Your guests are also welcome to call us and make purchases over the phone.
Soon it will also be possible to create and manage your wish list online, and for your guests to make purchases through our website.
Each gift will be beautifully presented using our complimentary stylish gift wrapping.
We can also arrange to deliver your gifts straight to your door for a nominal fee.
PLUS, as our special gift, you'll also receive a Mr Sparrow gift voucher valued at 10% of the total amount purchased on your wish list!
If you're interested, just ask me (or Elli) next time you're in the store...
