A Better Holiday Wishlist
With Public Lists

December 9, 2014 - Comments

Nobody wants to be singing “It’s beginning to look a lot like socks for Christmas.” So just in time for the silly season, we’ve made it easier than ever to make your Holiday wishlist. It’s all thanks to some big improvements to Public Lists that will make letting your loved ones know exactly what to get you as easy as one, two, three.

Step 1: Make your wishlist

If you haven’t yet, now’s a great time to put Add to Wunderlist to work for you. It lets you instantly capture anything from the web and puts it straight into your Wunderlist. Once installed, just start browsing the web for all the gifts you’d like Santa to bring you. Oh, and there’s sneak preview ahead: Pictured below is the new Add to Wunderlist design for iPhone and iPad that's coming in the next update.

When you come across what you want, just click the Add to Wunderlist button. With a little bit of elf-magic, it gets all the most important information from the web page and puts it straight into your wishlist with one click.

Step 2: Curate and Publish

Now that you’ve collected all your wishes, it’s time to sort them. Simply drag and drop to arrange them in the order of what you want most at the top, to the least at the bottom.

Ready? Go ahead and hit the Publish button. If you’re on your phone or tablet, you’ll notice that we’ve made it easier to customize your Public list. You can now add a cover photo, description, category (you’ll want to use Gifts for this list) and the ability to make your Public List numbered. In fact, Alex has been super organized and already made his list which is a great example of what to do:

Step 3: Share it with your loved ones

With your wishlist now published, you can share it in almost any way imaginable. From the unique website that your wishlist gets, you can post it to your Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter or Google+ profiles. And don’t forget that you can also copy the web address of your list and share it in an email or message.

Pro Tip: If you’ve got kids, you can make sure their aunts, uncles and grandparents know exactly what to get them by creating a wishlist for them too, just like this one.

Now all you have to do is sit back and make sure you stay on Santa’s Nice Wunderlist. Oh, and while you’re counting down the days, be sure to take a look at wunderlist.com/Discover to find a plethora of fun and inspiring Public Lists. Happy Holidays from everyone at Wunderlist!
