It's the most wonderful time of the year and you want to buy something for your friend, family or even a stranger. Amazon offers the Amazon Wishlist which let's you view what they wish they had. These are often present ideas or just general day to day items that would be great to own. I have seen Amazon Wishlists used for Secret Santa, Christmas, and even for influencers who know their audience would like to support them.
Just so you know, there is the Amazon Wishlist and the Amazon Giftlist. You can do a search and find someones wishlist but if it doesn't work, I will share an alternative way. However, please be advised that if someone makes an Amazon wishlist then the search won't work. The search only works for gift lists (custom gift list, holiday gift list, and birthday gift list). Here is the main page on Amazon to create or search for a giftlist, wishlist, or registry.
How To Do An Amazon Wishlist/Giftlist/Registry Search
You can find an Amazon Giftlist through the public search area. I will explain how to do that here. If this doesn't work, don't worry, just do the second way which is by manually requesting access because it might be set to private for your friend or family member.
1. Open this search page (Click the link to open it in a new tab)
2. Type in the name and click "any" for gift list type
How to request access for an Amazon Wishlist
If you would like to view an Amazon Wishlist list, you must ask the recipient to share it with you.
To do this, follow 5 steps
1. Go to Amazon.com (Click the link to open it in a new tab)
2. Hover over your name and click "find a list or registry".
3. Click the friends tab on this page and click send a message.
4. Select Email this message.
5. Enter your friend's email address and send the message.
Last methods to get an Amazon Wishlist
1. Find their Instagram or Facebook and check if they have a link in their bio with their wishlist.
2. Ask them directly for a link and by clicking on it, you will go directly to their Amazon wishlist.
