How to Find Someone’s Amazon Wish List?

So, a few days ago we received an email in which the person wanted to know how to find someone’s wish list on Amazon. Well, we went to the Amazon app and found some extremely useful stuff for all of you.

An Amazon wish list is a perfect means to determine what to gift your loved ones on special occasions, including birthdays, Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, and many more.

Well, believe it or not, it is very easy to find someone’s wish list on Amazon – if and only if their wish list is not private. Sadly, if they have set privacy on their wish list, you won’t be able to look it up.

Before you start searching through Amazon for wish lists, make sure you have your gift ideas organizer ready.

Also in this article, we will also show you how to make, customize, and share your Amazon Wish list.

Amazon Wish List: What is it?

Amazon wish list is a platform that helps consumers to build a list of things they desire or expect to purchase in the near future. Unless otherwise stated, wish lists are normally public, and anybody with a connection or a link to them can access them.

So, who has the keys to your wish list? Someone is looking for suggestions for what to buy you for a special day or the kinds of stuff you want so they can make you a present. You were once able to browse through Amazon wish lists using email addresses and names, but sadly that seems to be no longer possible. Now there is a different way to navigate your friend’s wish list, and it’s not as well-kept as it once was.

First, Let’s go to the Amazon Home Page

Hover your mouse over the Accounts & Lists button, you can find it in the upper right corner, once you choose Wish List. You can also go straight to Amazon’s wish list website page by clicking HERE.

2nd Step – Your Friends

At the top, you will see three bars which are the options for; Your lists, Your Friends, and Your idealists. Tap on the “your friends’ list” option.

3rd Step– Ask Friends

On the tab, there is a pre-written message asking your friend to share their list. To deliver it, simply press the Email this message button. You can also copy and edit the message before submitting it from your email address.

Sadly, until and unless they share their Wish List with you, you will not be able to use it without their permission. Although, they won’t get to know what you bought from the catalog until the gift comes. Before you can browse any lists, you must first have an Amazon account and be logged in. If you’re the last person on the planet without one, you can sign up for a free Amazon account right HERE.

4th Step – Lets Pen down the List

If you wish to return to the list later, to try it out on another special occasion, it will still be available for you. You can access it from your list tab unless your friend or family member makes it private.

5th Step – Time to Get Organized

Using the “sort by” and filter pull-down menus, you can sort Wish list products by title, date, price, preference, or purchased status.

You can also then move your products to your cart for future purchases or buy them with a single click. If you save goods in your cart first, Amazon will always alert you when there is a sale or a price change. You can even order gift wraps from Amazon, so that’s taken care of.

How to make your very own Amazon wish list?

In this section, we’ll go through how to create Amazon Wish lists, and we will take you through the process if you’re unfamiliar with it or you have never had a chance to try it.

1st Step – List Creation

Hold your mouse over the Accounts & Lists button in the upper right corner of the screen and choose the Wish List option. In the top right corner, click the Create a List button. Select the Wish List. You will be asked to name your Wish List. You’ll also get to choose whether it’s private or public, as well as your name or nickname for the wish list. Lastly, press the Create List button. For example, the Test Wish List is what we call ours.

2nd Step – Adding Products to the Wish List

Simply go to any product page that you like on Amazon to add items to your list. For example, suppose you want to add an Instant Pot to your wish list. As a result, you’ll need to check for it on Amazon and then navigate to the sales page that shows the product. Just scroll down to the right and look for the Add to List Tab. Press on it, search for your list and then select it.

A page will appear indicating that you have added it to your list, and you will be asked whether you want to view your list or continue your shopping spree. When you click on View Your List, you will be taken to the page where you can view your list. The Instant Pot will now appear on your Wish List Tab. You can add as many items as you want to your list.

3rd Step – Privacy Settings

Tap on “More” at the end of your Wish List. Pick “Manage List” from the menu. Set the collection to Private or Public under the Privacy header. Remember that only you can see the list if it is private. You will now continue by clicking “Submit”. This will activate your privacy settings.

You can also update your name, choose a shipping address, and create a spoiler warning. If you choose a spoiler warning, you won’t be aware that anyone has ordered anything from your collection until it arrives. This also keeps you from purchasing the same present for yourself twice. Lastly, if you no longer use the Wish list, you can remove it from your account.

How to share “My Amazon Wish List” with others?

Click the Send lists to others button to share your list. You may allow anyone to view a shared wish list. If it’s only for you, you can select view only and grab the link. This link can be shared through email, Facebook, Twitter, and any other social media platform.

You are free to make as many wish lists as you’d like for each event. There is no upper bound. You can change the order of your collections, add notes, and even prioritize them. Also, you can have products from other web stores on your wish list too!

Using the Amazon Assistant browser extension, you can add products from Nordstrom, eBay, Target, Sally Beauty, and many other stores.

Are the Purchased Items removed from the Wish List?

If an item has already been bought, Amazon immediately hides it. If you want the product to stay on your list, select the option from the Manage List menu.


Amazon, on the other hand, would signify that the item has already been bought. Please keep in mind that if you checked this box, the alternative “don’t spoil my surprises” would not work.

Can anyone see my address on Amazon? – Wish List Privacy

When it comes to your shipping address, you don’t have to be concerned about privacy.

If anyone buys something off your wish list and requests that it should be delivered directly to your home, the only information they are going to see is your name and the city where you reside. They will not be able to see the shipping address.

We have previously purchased from my “friends’ lists”, and when the delivery address option popped up, all we saw was our friend’s first name and city, so we know for a fact that this information is right.

We hope this article helped you with your confusion. Happy shopping!
