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 dashboard is a shortcut to wishing ✨
