How do I add wishes to my Wishlist?

The best part about wishing is that you can do it at any time! You don't have to be in a Gift Exchange. Update your Wishlist before your birthday or whenever you see something you'd love to get. Add wishes from anywhere - including other wishlists.

If you're anything like me, when people ask what you want you draw a blank. It's hard to think on the spot. That's what's so great about an Elfster Wishlist. You can add to it any time you see something that would make a great gift and then share that list with everyone.

There are a few ways to add wishes to your Wishlists in Elfster.

Adding Wishes on Laptop, Desktop, Tablet or Mobile:

 

✨The Add to Wishlist button on your Elfster Home page is a shortcut to wishing ✨ 

  • Browse our Gift Guides -- We offer a ton of Gift Guides that are full of ideas for yourself or to use as ideas for shopping for others! Click on SHOP in the menu. On tablet or mobile, select the hamburger menu first to view the Gift Guides.

    While browsing our SHOP, clicking the WISH button under any item you’d like to add to a Wishlist will add it.
    • ✨The item will load and then you can edit the name, select an image for the item, enter the quantity you want, add an optional note with size, color, etc., and pick which Wishlist you want to add it to and then click/tap the ADD button.✨ 
    • If you have multiple Wishlists, a drop-down of your Wishlists will appear when you click or tap the WISH button. If you are managing other accounts with our Family Manager, you’ll see and be able to add to their Wishlist on the drop-down menu also!
  • Search Shop -- Another way to make wishes is to use our SEARCH BAR. The SEARCH BAR is at the top of the SHOP page. You can also find it from your Wishlist by clicking/tapping on the Add to Wishlist button.
    • Type the item you'd like in the "What are you wishing for?" area of the SEARCH BAR.
    • Click/tap the button with a magnifying glass on it.

      ✨The item will load and then you can edit the name, select an image for the item, enter the quantity you want, add an optional note with size, color, etc., and pick which Wishlist you want to add it to and then click/tap the ADD button.✨
  • Link Wishes -- If you find an item online that you'd like to add to your Wishlist, you can add it to your Wishlist with a simple copy and paste.
    • Copy the full URL for the item.
    • Go to Elfster and click/tap on SHOP in the menu. On tablet or mobile, select the hamburger menu first.
    • Hover over or tap the +More Options text, near the Search bar.
    • Paste the full URL (including the www at the front) into the PASTE LINK HERE box, and click/tap the  +ADD button.

All Your Wishlists in One Place

✨Link wishes are perfect for adding wishlists you may have created on other sites to your Elfster Wishlist. Simply copy the link from that site and paste it in the link wish field.  When your friends click the link, they'll be taken to your other wishlist.✨ 

Easily add wishes from anywhere on a laptop or desktop using the Elf It! button.

  • Written Wishes -- If you want to add an item to your Wishlist, but you don’t have a link to it, or it would be easier to just type your wish, this is method is for you. Written wishes have a character limit of 100, but if you need to add more detail, the accompanying Note will offer another 160 characters.
    • Click on SHOP in the menu.  On tablet or mobile, select the hamburger menu first and then on the +More Options text, near the search bar.
