Q. If I create a gift registry, will you be sending me a lot of e-mail?

What’s the difference between the REI Gift Registry and a Wish List?
A Gift Registry is generally tied to a date-specific event such as a wedding or birthday. We track items your friends and family purchase from the registry. A Wish List, on the other hand, is designed for your personal use. Because your friends or family can’t find your wish list through the REI website, it’s up to you to share it with them. Learn More about Wish Lists.
