    I would really like to offer this service to my customers- basically a wish list they fill out and then I would contact whoever they designated (i.e. spouse, children, etc. etc.) around their bdays, holidays, mother's day, etc. to let them know what is on their gift registry/wish list.

    I'm wondering how exactly you work it... what tips do you have, how to you explain it to your customers, and do you have any documents you can share on this? TIA!!

    I'd feel very odd if someone I didn't know/expect contacted me claiming to know what my mom/sister wanted several times a year. Most likely it would be trashed as spam. So if you are going to do this, have your customer let people know you will be contacting them.

    Or maybe have them let the others know "Contact my consultant, X, if you want to know what Pampered Chef items I want" (though even that is kind of awkward all the way around.)

    It's too bad Pampered Chef doesn't let you set up gift registries for any occasion at all.

    I wouldn't rely on email when working with a gift registry like this. I would ask for a phone number, and call. And if you give your customers magnets to stick on their fridge, and it's a spouse, they'll have seen your name before. Even if they haven't noticed :D
