What is Wrapistry?
Wrapistry is a modern online retailer designed to make wedding and gift shopping simple and stress free, all from the comfort of your home.
Founded in 2014 and based in Johannesburg, South Africa, we set out to build the ultimate wedding and gift shopping experience.
Can I shop on Wrapistry without having a gift registry?
Yes, of course!
We are both an online shopping website and a gift registry. You can add items to your cart instead of your registry – shop ’til you drop!
How do online registries work?
Weddings, kitchen tea’s, engagement party and birthday registries can all be set-up online here.
You can select a list of things you want, based on your taste and needs. We offer a complimentary service by sitting down with you to help give advice on your gift registry, which can sometimes be overwhelming.
Once the special event is over, all gifts are delivered straight to your home, so those buying gifts for you don’t need to bring the gift to the function and gifts will not be stolen or lost. We provide you with a list of all gifts bought and from whom to help you thank your friends and family for buying your gifts from Wrapistry.
Why choose an online registry?
People are much more appreciative when they receive presents they’d explicitly asked for.
Wrapistry offers you flexibility when it comes to adding or removing items – a handy feature for newly engaged couples still trying to figure out if they have everything for the household.
Can I exchange a gift?
If on receiving your order you are not delighted with your purchase, please inform our Wrapistry team within 10 working days and we will gladly exchange it provided the item is in its original condition, original packaging and provided the gift you desire is in stock.
Once your return has arrived back with us, you will receive Wrapistry credits for the cash value of the gift, which are store credits that you can use to purchase something else from the Wrapistry site.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 010 500 7503 and we’ll arrange the return for you.
Does Wrapistry support international shipping?
At this time, we only ship within South Africa, and we only support cash transfers into SA bank accounts that are associated with a SA mailing address.
That being said, we do support the use of international credit cards with no additional charges, so your out-of-the-country guests can still give you a gift – no excuses!
Should you wish to send a gift overseas, let us know and we will do our best to make it happen for you. Contact us at email@example.com.
Creating Your Registry
When should I create my registry?
What are you waiting for?
Registering for wedding gifts should be one of the first tasks you tackle when you get engaged. Friends and family will be looking to buy wedding gifts as soon as he pops the question. Take the guesswork out of gift buying by making sure they know what you want. You don’t need to complete your list just yet, but at least have a selection for guests to choose from.
How do I know when I have enough items on my registry?
A good registry has a wide variety of items and prices to cater for guests of all pockets and tastes. Check how many guests you have invited to your celebration and make sure there are enough items on your registry for all of them. The Wrapistry team offers a complimentary service to help give you advice when choosing gifts at no additional costs.
Remember, our customers and service are our greatest gift!
What if I want to change the items on my registry?
Wrapistry allows you to log in and manage your registry and remove items and add new ones whenever you wish.
How do I register for a honeymoon or cash gift?
Once you have created your registry, you’ll see “Cash Funds” as a category at the top of the homepage and choose from our variety of cash & honeymoon fund options. Set your desired fixed amount, quantity & click ‘Add to Registry’.
Once contributions have been made, Wrapistry will give you the total amount in cash, less 3,5% fee. You can opt to have these funds transferred whenever you like!
