Tech Tuesday – Amazon’s Universal Wish List


Do you keep a wish list on Amazon? I do. It’s a great way for me to keep track of things I’m interested in but don’t want to buy now. And it provides a handy cheat sheet for my in-laws when my birthday rolls around. But as much as I love Amazon, they don’t sell everything I love. (I do buy just about everything from them, including diapers and umbrellas!) What if I really want a darling little necklace from an Etsy seller? Wouldn’t it be great if I could add that to my Amazon wish list? Well, you can! Just use their Universal Wish List button. Drag and drop it into your web browser tool bar and any time you see something you like, simply click on the button and add it to your Amazon wish list. When your friends or family go shopping for you, they’ll see all your favorite things, including the ones that can’t be bought on Amazon.

“Tech Tuesday – Amazon’s Universal Wish List”

    I love Amazon wish lists and just recently add the universal wish list button. LOVE it! I keep Amazon lists for my two boys since whenever their birthdays or Christmas rolls around people are always asking for ideas. And so I don’t end up with a bunch of toys or games that I don’t really like for them, it’s a great way to steer people in the direction of things you’d like your kids to have without being too annoying. 🙂

    It’s super easy for our family overseas too since they can just order things and have it sent to our house and not have to worry about shipping from Australia if they don’t want to.

    What a great idea! I’ve been keeping ideas for my son in my wish list and steering people there . . . or I’ve occasionally added to his baby registry and sent the family there for ideas. But it’ll be so much easier to start a separate wish list for him. Thanks for the tip!
