Frequently asked questions for Things I Love wishlists

If your question is not answered, please feel free to contact us and we will provide you with an answer.

1) About this site

1.1) What is this site?

This website is so you can easily create online wishlists for any reason. They're ideal for birthday and christmas gifts. Or if you're getting married, you can create a wedding registry too.

1.2) How do I create a wishlist?

You just start adding items to create a wishlist - there's no need to sign up until you're happy with our service. When you're happy we are the right place for your online wishlist, you can save your account and start sharing it with your friends and family.

1.3) I can't log in - what am I doing wrong?

You've probably disabled cookies, which are tiny pieces of information websites use to remember who you are. To login, you have to re-enable cookies for this website, otherwise the site can't remember who you are.

If you rule out problems with cookie settings and still cannot log in, please get in touch and we'll be able to sort you out.

You can see how we use cookies in our privacy policy

1.4) Are you going to sell our information to other sites?

The plain and simple answer is no. I can't foresee any reason to and doubt anyone could convince me otherwise. There is also a privacy policy which pretty much re-iterates this.

2) Looking after your wishlists

2.1) How do I stop people I don't know from seeing my wishlists?

If you go to your wishlist and click on the edit icon, you can change who can see that wishlist. You can make the list public, restricted to logged in users or all or a subset of the people you've listed as friends.

2.2) Can I make individual items restricted as well?

Much like the privacy settings for wishlists, you can also apply the same kinds of restrictions on who can see a particular item. The most restrictive setting between an item and the wishlist it is on will take priority.

2.3) Is there a way I can easily add shiny things as I find them?

Yes. Most modern browsers have some form of "Bookmarks bar" or "Favourites bar" that can be enabled to appear at the top of the window. If it is enabled/visible you should be able to drag this Add to Wishlist link on to it. And then, when you find something shiny you want to add to your wishlist, you just click the link.

It will fill in most of the details for you - for some websites, it will even fill in the price.

3) Buying gifts

3.1) How can I find my friend's wishlists?

You can search for people by either their surname, full name, nicknames or email. If even after trying those options, you still can't find it then ask your friend.

3.2) How do I say I've got something from their wishlist?

When you've bought a gift off someone's wishlist, locate the item on their wishlist and click on the Buy This button.

3.3) Can I buy something without them knowing as a surprise?

Definitely - there's an tickbox on the page confirming what you've bought that lets you state that an gift has been bought in secret.

4) Account management

4.1) Can I change my username?

It is possible to do this, but you have to remember that your username is included in the address for your wishlists so if you've already given it out, you will need to update everyone with the new address. Just drop us a message and we can make the change.

4.2) I have an account, but I can't remember my username?

You can use your email address to log in to your account. If you've changed email addresses then get in touch and we will try and help get you reconnected with your wishlist.

4.3) I no longer want an account - how do I delete it?

We'd be sorry to see you go, but just click the link on the settings page and follow the instructions. If you have added our Facebook app, you will also need to remove that via Facebook's website.
