How to Add Wish List Bookmarklet

What is the Add to Wish List Bookmarklet?

The 'Add to Wish List' bookmarklet will make adding gifts to your wish list much easier.  Watch the Add Gift Items to Your Wish List Using the Bookmarklet  video (3 minutes - will open in a blank screen and take a minute or two to download).  Detailed instructions and videos which show you how to add the bookmarklet to your browser are shown in the sections below.

Bookmarklets are links you add to your browser's Bookmarks/Links/Favorites Toolbar. In fact you can add your bookmarklet anywhere in your Favorites folders if you so choose. The YouCouldGetMe bookmarklet simply links to your Add to Gifts page. The bonus is that two of the fields on your Add Gifts page will be copied automatically saving you time and effort.

  1. The bookmarklet will copy the address (URL) of the page containing your gift item.
  2. If you highlight the gift item name this will be copied to the Link Text field.
  3. Then select the category, who can see the item, and add any notes.

Click on the [Add Gift Item Button] and your gift item will be added to to wish list and you will be returned back to your shopping page.

This makes the whole process really much easier.
