It’s rarely easy to get the perfect gift. A surprise is always pleasant, but isn’t it better to get someone exactly what they want? This is especially important when that someone is you!

Your childhood loose leaf wish list has likely been upgraded to something digital, and it won’t surprise anyone if it’s from Amazon. And there’s no need to slip it under a door or hide it in plain sight. You can easily share your Amazon Wish List with anyone, anywhere.

Whatever you wish

Wish lists let you add things you want to purchase at a later date. This could be because you need to save up for it or simply don’t need it yet. Most online retailers and auction sites have some tools to help you keep track of items you want to remember.

Amazon’s Wish List can also serve as a gift registry. Indeed, many newlyweds and new parents use the tool for this exact purpose. But anyone can create a list and make it available to others. And you can create as many lists as you want.

You can let friends and family view the list and even permit them to edit it. This is great if you want to get together and collaborate on a gift for someone special.

Adding an item to your Amazon Wish List can also help you track its price. Price drop alerts let you know when you can get an item for less.
