How to Add Custom, Vague, or Offline Gifts to Your CheckedTwice Wishlist

There are three ways to add a gift to a CheckedTwice wishlist:

  1. Search Amazon for an item from within CheckedTwice
  2. Copy and paste a URL from anywhere on the web
  3. Create your own gift with a description

We wanted to tell you a little more about the third option – to create your own gift.

What if you want to add an item to your wishlist from a local merchant up the street that doesn’t have a website? Or you want a new red ski hat… but you don’t care where it comes from? Or maybe you have a son who is extremely interested in ANYTHING related to Thomas the Tank Engine and therefore anything related to Thomas is a perfect gift. In these scenarios, creating your own gift is the option for you! All you need to do is make sure you provide an adequate description that will let family members know just what you’re looking for and it will display on your wishlist along with all of the other gift ideas.

To add your own gift, first click on “Add Gift” and then click on the tab within the Add Gift screen that says “Type it in” and start by giving your gift a name.

Next, give your gift a good description. Once you’ve written something, reread it from the perspective of someone having no idea what you are talking about and see if they will be able to interpret it correctly. If not, revise it to make sure that they’ll know what you want. custom gift preview

Over to the right, you’ll be able to see a preview of what your custom gift will look like when it is displayed on your wishlist. When you’re happy with the name and description of your new gift, click the red “Add this gift” button and voila! Your new gift will be on your wishlist (or the wishlist of the person you’ve created the gift for).

This is a great way to add offline gifts, somewhat intangible gifts, or to give parameters to a flexible gift idea. Do you have any other ways to use the custom gift option? Share it with us in the comments!
