What people are saying
about SoKind...

"I LOVE SO KIND! I can't tell you how many people came up to me, even months after, to tell me how much they loved the 'alternative registry' and that they wished they had heard of it for their past celebrations. As for me, who cobbled together an alternative registry for our wedding, I'm kicking myself for not finding it sooner either! I plan to use this site for every future celebration, should I be blessed enough to have many more.

"It's a one-stop way to give meaningful gifts without getting caught up in the expensive "more stuff" trap
that often bogs down even the most conscientious among us."

"You guys are so awesome and have created an exceptional vehicle for communicating couple uniqueness. You're changing the way people gift. I love your website so much and I wish you all the best."

— Paul

“a new and improved gift registry aimed firmly at those who value experiences over material goods,
handmade crafts over mass-produced gadgets, and gently used and carefully selected
pre-loved goods over things they’ll probably use once and never see again.”


"I love your So Kind Registry website! It's exactly what we're looking for our future baby registry.
We really want to start our family out with as small of an impact as we can, so it's just right."

— Tricia

“[I]nstead of asking for china plates you’ll never use, you can ask for a set-up crew, a videographer, a DJ,
a wedding organizer, or a volunteer rehearsal dinner host. Just imagine: You might even end up with a
beautiful wedding that you didn’t go into debt to host! And bonus: no crystal bowls you’ll never use.”


"Before we go on raving about SoKind, we will tell you that we have absolutely no affiliation with them whatsoever. We just love how much easier they make it for DIY couples to have day-of-event help
for their weddings, and we love SoKind's inspiring commitment to helping people create
meaningful events that reflect their lifestyle and values."
