Über-Registries

Graduate School
Launched by an indebted New York couple, educationregistry.com allows you to ask for books, tuition, and room-and-board. Funds go into a Citibank account, with a 2 to 5 percent service fee deducted from each “gift” and a 3 to 6 percent deduction from the gifted lump sum.

Honeymoon
There are many registries of this kind, but travelersjoy.com is arguably the best. It has a low service fee (7.5 percent), seventeen destinations to choose from, and a wide range of possible activities to ask for. Guests can buy everything from airfare to moonlit dinners on the beach.

Charity
At heifer.org, guests buy alpacas, donkeys, or yaks in your name to generate food and income for the world’s poor. Or register at tenthousandvillages.com, for handcrafted home décor by groups in Asia, Africa, and Latin America who are guaranteed a fair wage.

Whatever You Desire
Ask for anything at myregistry. com: laser eye surgery, a Puggle, or dinner at Per Se. After customizing your registry page, post pictures of your wish-list items and links to their sources (purchases must be made through the store, salon, or restaurant that offers them).
