Getting Started

Why use Gift Hero?

Many online retailers have wish lists, and that’s great, but with Gift Hero you can have EVERYTHING you want all in one place. Sharing a list with family and friends, especially the ones that are far away, makes gifting a breeze. Gift Hero is, after all The Best Wish List Ever™!

What is a Gift Hero wish list?

Wish list, gift registry, gift list… however you think of it, a Gift Hero wish list is an online list of any item you’d like to receive. Some people like to use Gift Hero as a tool to keep track of items they’d like to buy in the future. You can use it as your own personal year-round registry.

Expert Lists

How do Expert Lists work? What can I do with Expert Lists?
