It's time to think outside the (BIG) box.

What is SoKind?

SoKind is a fully customizable platform for any celebration — allowing you to create truly unique and meaningful registries, wishlists and givelists.


Today’s gift-giving culture has become increasingly commercialized, fueled by ads, fads and glitz. Celebrations from birthdays to weddings have become increasingly extravagant and more about consuming things than the occasions and people we care about. Here at SoKind, we know that your favorite gifts don’t always fit in a box.

SoKind allows you to create registries, wishlists and givelists focused less on stuff and more on family, fun and friends. Together, we can redefine celebrations in ways that respect land, waters and wildlife and refocus on what really matters.

So go ahead, be creative. What gifts do you truly want? Music lessons? Homemade dinners? A museum membership? Babysitting help? Donations to your favorite charity? Through SoKind, you can register for gifts of time, experience, and skill, as well as traditional material gifts and secondhand items. The registry is entirely customizable, so the possibilities are endless!

How does SoKind work?

1
Get inspired

Take some time to think about what kinds of gifts reflect your values and would help improve your quality of life. For inspiration, check out these SoKind gift ideas organized by gift type or event type and our sample registries, wishlists, and givelists if you need some extra guidance.

2
Create a registry

Now that you have an idea of where to begin, click here to start your registry, wishlist or givelist. For each gift, include as much helpful information as possible for your family and friends. You can upload an image and link to the website where it can be found. If you want only locally made products, you can mention this in your description. If you are registering for home-cooked foods, include any dietary restrictions or allergy information. Check out our sample registries, wishlists and givelists if you need some extra guidance.

3
Share with family and friends!

Spread the word about your registry, wishlist or givelist by sending a personalized announcement to your guests. SoKind keeps track of what gifts have been given and who signed up for each (or, keep it anonymous if you prefer to be surprised!). Send thank you messages quickly and easily through SoKind.

Enjoy your celebration and personalized gifts — and here’s to a holiday or celebration filled with more fun and less stuff, more joy and less stress, more love and less waste.
