Creating Gift Registries

The gift registry type is the special event that is associated with the gift registry. It can be a wedding, birthday, anniversary, new baby, or any other special occasion. By default, Magento provides gift registry types for the following special events:

  • Baby Registry
  • Birthday
  • Wedding

Each gift registry type consists of a number of attributes, which are the data entry fields that a customer completes to create a gift registry. The attributes can be used to provide additional information about the gift registry owner, the event, time and location, or any other information that relates to the gift registry. Depending on the input type, some attributes have multiple options. For example, the gift registry type “Wedding,” has the attribute “Role,” with the options, “Bride,” “Groom,” and “Partner.” To learn more about attributes and input types, see: Managing Attributes.
