About Me:

Dana Ostomel is the founder and Chief Gifting Officer of Deposit a Gift, a cash gift registry service. Years before Dana got married, she wondered how anyone could store so many presents—and even if they could, how they had the time to unwrap, return (often), track and use them all. Her marketing background led her to believe she could simplify the registry process—and not just for weddings, but for any big gifting event. And so Deposit a Gift, the next generation gift registry, was born.

About My Business

Deposit a Gift is a Cash Wedding Registry for Honeymoons, Home Down Payments, Charity, and More! It's incredibly user friendly, and offers a great alternative to traditional registries. Couples today need flexibility and cash gives them just that. There are no returns, no space constraints. When you’re ready, you cash-out to spend the money where and when you want. Fun, flexible and hassle-free!

Why I Love My Profession

I love being an entrepreneur who has created something truly useful for so many engaged couples. The best part of my job is when I get the chance to help them personally, because this is the human side of the business. I like to think that Deposit a Gift offers the best of both worlds: we are an online registry that is inherently easy and flexible, but the way I run it is with the personal touch of a department store registry consultant so that you get the support you deserve.
