The John Lewis service is the most popular in the country so it's important to register soon. They can only accept a certain number of Gift Lists – make sure yours is one of them. Three to four months before your simcha, you'll be invited to visit the shop to select your gifts with a hand-held scanner. Friends and family can then buy gifts from your list online, in store or by phone.

John Lewis sends regular updates telling you who has bought what to help you keep track of your list. Gifts are removed from the list as they are bought to avoid duplication. John Lewis will look after them until you're ready to receive them and then deliver for free within the local area.
