I love this app so much! But one problem I had this year that People couldnt mark stuff they got me on the list like when they put “mark as purchase” it shows only to them and not the other people looking at the list! I had few secret santas this year and also my family gets me stuff from my list! And because there isnt a feature of marking what get, I got duplicates.

I think that if theres a feature that. If I am getting somebody a gift from their list I can mark it off that anybody looking at the list can see that this item is already purchased but it doesnt show to person getting the gifts so he is still surprised when he gets the gift and not know before hand which gift was already purchased.

This would be super helpful. Please take it into consideration

Hi there! Thanks so much for your feedback. There is a mark as purchased option when following someone else's Wishlist or when you drew someone in a Gift Exchange. If you don't see that option for someone you're following or drew, please reach out to us at help@elfster.com with screenshots of what you do see so our techie elves can take a look.

Wish List Worthy App

This app is a dream to wish lists! I love the functionality that it gives gift buyers to see what’s still available to purchase versus what hasn’t been purchased yet (and how that is conveniently disguised from the gift seeker). The only things I’d like to see improved are the availability of pictures for gifts that are added with a copied link and a direct link to the product for gifts added with a copied link. It either doesn’t show a picture of the product or it doesn’t appear to be an accurate picture. It also appears that you can’t just click the link to go to the website. You have to copy and paste it into a browser, which isn’t hard, but it’s inconvenient, especially when gifts you find through the app will allow you to click the link and go directly to the product. Those improvements would boost my rating to 5 stars.

Thanks so much for your review! We'd love to see an example of the link wishes that either aren't showing pictures of the item or that you can't click the link for. Both of those should work as you've described. Please shoot us a note with the links and screenshots to help@elfster.com. Our techie elves would be happy to take a look.

It’s okay

It’s suppose to be a dream, gets everything in One place does the drawing for you and keeps it a secret. Let’s you make a wishlist and you can buy things for others in your party.

One thing I do not like and it became very annoying is when you are adding something to your wishlist and use the ‘copy and paste a link’ option, you cannot add a picture and if you try the ‘write in your wish’ option you cannot add a link, the second you add a link it turns it into the ‘copy and paste link’ option and removes what ever title or picture you have. So essentially you either have a picture with no link in your wishlist or a link with no picture
