How Giftster works

With Giftster you become part of a small social network connecting family and close friends around gift giving occasions.

If this is your first time using Giftster, you won't have any family or friends connected yet.

Once you connect one or more of your family into a group, each family member logs in to update their own wish lists, and to view and reserve gifts on each other’s lists.

- Everyone in your family can connect to you with this App - we built a version of Giftster that runs on just about every device.

- Giftster instantly synchronizes changes to all devices, including your account at

- Requires a network data connection or wifi to operate.

Great for families!

I love this app. It’s been so great for my large family. I just wish it had a few more options. I’d love to be able to organize things by website or at least indicate what website it’s from in the teaser. That way it will be easy for me to purchase multiple items from the same site. It would also be nice to be able to organize the members of the list by family. Just some thoughts. Thank you!!!

Great Concept, but VERY Glitchy

Listen, I love this app because there’s not really anything like it out there, but as soon as a competitor comes along with an app that really works, I’ll move on, no question.
Good luck trying to upload a photo or getting the “fetch” feature to work the way it’s supposed to. I’d say 75% of the time I can’t even get it to pull up the upload photo option, and the few times it does work, it doesn’t actually upload anything.
The fetch data option usually works, but occasionally it pulls in photos of the wrong product...which then requires you to save you own photo and manually upload it (and you already read how that goes).
If you’re good with manually writing in everything and trust that your family/friends will find the item that way, then you should be fine. But if your family is anything like mine and you need photos to help them out, just be aware that you’re in for a frustrating time.

Developer Response ,

Alyssa sorry you are temporarily having to put up with an issue affecting inserting images from your phone into your items. We have a fix but are at code freeze for December. Tip: with add image you can pull any image from the web to add to your items, no local image needed. Also, have you tried on your computer as well? You'll love that version too.

Reliable, Clever, and Easy To Use!

I'm a busy mom and this has decreased the chaos at Christmas time like you wouldn't believe! Even the people in our family who don't have smartphones can use it with the website and now we can get the perfect gift for them every time! It's simple, clean design makes it easy for the grandparents to use. Not only does it have lists that you can reserve and purchase items from, but they also have a gift preferences page that can help you learn more about things they may want that aren't on the list. So many other great features too! I can't tell you how much this has helped my family. After searching and searching for something like this I finally found Giftster and can easily say it's the best wish list/gift registry there is out there!
