Wishpot Registry Love…

…What Are You Wishing For?

When my sisters and I were little and we’d go shopping with my mom, the rule was, “If you ask for it, you don’t get it”.  We could “oooh” and “aaah” over things to drop hints that we really wanted something, but we could never ask for it.  Made perfect sense, it kept us from becoming spoiled and throwing temper tantrums throughout every aisle of the store! 

As we entered our teenage years, the rule pretty much remained the same.  To prevent us from whining about what all our friends had that we didn’t, she’d simply say, “Yeah, well how’s it feel to want?”.  It shut us up quickly.  I mean, what could we say to that?  Nothing!  Nope, not unless we wanted to be stuck at home grounded on a Friday night.

While we didn’t particularly like my mom’s answers very much when we were younger, we look back now, laugh and finally “get it”.  She was strict, yes, but she kept us grounded by making us understand we couldn’t always have what we wanted, whenever we wanted it.  However, it didn’t mean we couldn’t wish for it!  This brings me to the reason why I love Wishpot so much.

Over the years, I’ve learned to appreciate the joy of window shopping.  Well, Wishpot is the perfect way to window shop!  Wish for things.  Wish for lots of things.  Whatever you want, darlings!  Wishpot makes it fun.  Maybe you won’t get your wishes right away or ever…but you can still keep track of all those things you’d love to someday have. 

You can add most any of your favorite items from any of your favorite online stores to any of your Wishpot lists!  Use Wishpot to register for your wedding!  Make birthday and holiday lists, lists of things you’d like to someday buy for people, lists of things you recommend to friends and family, the list goes on…literally!  It’s basically like the “grown up” way of dropping hints through the store.  No temper tantrums, kiddos…just plain shopping fun! 


Share your personal wish lists with friends and family.  This way, they never have to struggle with what to get you should they want to buy you something for your wedding, shower, birthday, holiday…or just because!  Encourage them to make their own lists as well…that way you’ll always know what to get them, too!  No more returns.  No more hassles.  No more wasting gas money driving from store to store.  It makes everything so much easier…and so much more fun! 

Wishpot also allows you to sign up for price drop alerts…which is seriously awesome.  Why spend extra money when you don’t have to?  If you’ve got your eye on a gorgeous pair of shoes but they’re a little out of your price range, just add them to your list and wait for Wishpot to tell you when it goes on sale.  Bam!  Fabulousness.  Or, perhaps you were blessed to receive amazing gifts for your wedding off of your Wishpot registry but there are still a few things you’d love to have.  Just wait for Wishpot to let you know when your wedding registry items go on sale.  You won’t have to worry about Wishpot deleting your registry like other stores do.

Need ideas or trying to find something?  You can browse other users’ or experts’ lists.  Stuck on trying to come up with the perfect outfit or gift?  You can always contact the Wishpot experts and ask them for help.  It’s almost like having your own personal shopper, in a way!  Get more tips, advice, ideas and inspiration by browsing the Wishpot blogs on  FashionWeddingBabyGifts, Indie, Gadgets and Deals, which are updated weekly.
