You (or your kids) can easily set up an Wish List and share it with friends and family. Amazon make this so easy!

Most kids know exactly what gifts they want, so you don’t have to guess or settle for a gift card. You can let Amazon do the shipping and include a message with your gift too.

How to Set Up an Wish List:

You can create a Wish List profile and add items to your registry to keep track of the items you would like to receive.

To create a Wish List:

  1. Click Wish List at the top of any page and select Create a Wish List from the drop-down.Note: If you’re creating multiple Wish Lists, go to an existing Wish List and click Create another Wish List under your profile name.
  2. Click Create your Wish List.
  3. Select Show list profile below your name in the left side of the page.
  4.  Click Update this list’s profile.
  5. Update your default shipping address, birthday, personal description and preferences.Note:
    • The shipping address you select will remain confidential. Gift givers will only see the name, city and state.
    • Amazon will only use your birthday for Wish List birthday reminders chosen by the customer and to generate information on the site.
    • You can update this information again anytime.
  6. Click Save and browse for an item.
  7. Click Add to Wish List under the Buy box on the right-hand side of any item’s product detail page.Note:
