Gift List - How to Guide


What is a Gift List?

A Gift List allows you to keep track of the items you really want, or share them with friends so they'll know just what to get you for that special occasion. Just like a wedding list, you can select any of the items from our range and add them to your Gift List. Then your friends and family can buy items directly from your list to ensure that you receive the items you really want and don't end up with three baby monitors!

How to create a Gift List

1. To create a gift list you must first sign in to your account. If you don't have an account you can register here.

2. From the My Account page click on the 'My Gift Lists' link

3. From the My Gift List page click 'add new' and choose a Gift List Type from the drop down menu ie. Birthday etc., then click 'next'.
