Grant My Wish is the new group gifting technology that lets you get, and help to give, the gifts you really want. It allows online shoppers to split the cost of a gift between their friends and family, meaning that money is no longer an object. It also makes gift giving social, as you share your Wishlist via Facebook and keep up to date with your friends' and families' birthdays.
Grant My Wish is a great tool because you can tell your friends what gifts you want, it lets you keep track of friends' birthdays and what they've added to their Wishlist, and it lets you share the cost of expensive gifts. Those gifts that you worried were a bit out of your price range are now within reach thanks to this social group gifting technology.
Registering with Grant My Wish is easy. Simply log in using your Facebook account or email! Once you've registered, you can log in using the same method.
Yes, if you want to create or join a Wishlist you need to have registered.
Grant My Wish currently has five major categories to help you find that perfect gift. Have You Tried? includes a great selection of unusual and classic gifts, from indoor skydiving to spa days. Then there are Driving Days, Pampering Days, Flying Days, and Theatre and Dinner Experiences.
Once you've logged in you can browse our gift categories, including Gifts for Him, Gifts for Her, Hot Deals, and Have You Tried? When you find that perfect gift, you can choose to either Buy Now or Add to Wishlist. If you want your friends to chip in, there are just a few simple steps to follow. Click Add to Wishlist, choose your occasion (Birthday, Christmas, etc.), select a Wish Deadline, and the Quantity.
When you've entered these details, click Add to Wishlist & Notify Friends. This will take you to your list of Facebook friends. You can now choose the people that you want to let know about your Wishlist. You can also send a personal message. Once the invitations have been sent, your Wishlist is ready to go and you friends can start chipping in.
Yes. It doesn't have to be in twenty four hours but there has to be a deadline for your wish.
Yes. But we have a wide range of occasions to choose from, including "Just Because", "Spoil Me", and "A Good Cause" so it doesn't have to be one you'd need a greeting card for.
When you set up the wish, you will be prompted to invite friends to chip in. You can either invite your friends via Facebook, or you can add your friends manually by entering their email addresses. You can send a personalised message to the invitees to let them know what you're wishing for and what the occasion is.
When you're inviting friends to join your Wishlist you have three options for suggesting payment amounts. You can select Split Evenly, Edit Manually, or simply Don't Suggest. When they join the Wishlist, this will be the amount presented to them. However, the invitees are under no obligation to pay the suggested amount, it's just a guideline.
As many as you can get! There's no limit to the number of people you can invite or to the number of people who can join the Wishlist.
Anyone can contribute any amount. There's no limit!
If you want to make the Wishlist public, click the Share with Friends button. It will take you to a list of your Facebook friends for you to choose from. A message will be posted on the selected friends' Facebook walls to let them know that you're organising a gift, who it's for, and what you're planning on getting them.
Of course. You can choose not to share the wish on Facebook. To keep your wish a secret, scroll down to the Privacy Settings section of your Wish Page and click the "Keep this wish secret among friends". This will ensure that nothing is posted on your Facebook wall and that only the invitees will see any invitations or updates.
On your Wish Page, you can see who you've invited to chip in, who's already contributed and how much, how close you are to achieving the full amount, how much money there is left to raise, and how much time you have left before the deadline. From this page you can also invite more friends as well as chipping in yourself.
Yes. When you make a payment, you will have the option to keep your contribution a secret.
If you want to look at what your friends are wishing for, simply click Birthdays. This is where you'll find the list of upcoming birthdays and expiring Wishlists. The upcoming occasions are organised by expiry date, so you can see who's got a birthday coming up and who's running out of time to get that perfect gift. To see a friend's Wishlist, you must first be invited to contribute.
No, you must be logged in to see your friends' Wishlist.
As many as you like. There is no limit to the number of Wishlists you can have at the same time.

Grant My Wish will increase traffic to your site and increase the number of shoppers viewing your products as the creator of the Wishlist will invite their friends and family to chip in. Not only will it increase sales of your more expensive products as shoppers share the cost, it will mean that shoppers who may not normally use the internet for shopping will be exposed to your line of goods.
