How does it work?

It's very simple, in a few clicks, your wishes are shared with your friends:

  1. Register or connect to your account
  2. Add your gift ideas
  3. Share them with your friends
  4. Your family and friends now know what you would like and can go and buy it without you knowing!
  5. View your friends' gift ideas to be sure to never disappoint them!

Afraid of receiving the same gift twice (or more)? Your friends can reserve them in your list. Only your friends can see these reservations: it will still be a surprise for you.

How can you avoid offering the same gift as someone else?

Before buying a gift, remember to reserve it. That way, you will be sure nobody else will buy the same present.

Next, indicate when you have offered it. Beware: by clicking on the "Offer" button, the concerned friend will be informed of it.

Why must I indicate when I have offered a gift to a friend?

Even after having reserved a gift idea, you can still decide if you are really going to buy it. If you change your mind, you can simply cancel your reservation, another friend will then be able to reserve it.

By indicating that you have offered a gift, it will disappear from your friend's gift ideas so that nobody else buys it.
