I love saving things for myself that I want to buy, but am not quite ready to purchase. It also makes birthdays and Christmas for my 7-year-old so much easier โ€“ I can share her wish list with family that is spread out from Coast to Coast.

Gift Hero really is an awesome site, and it's a fantastic company to work for! ๐Ÿ™Œ Big ups and love to the Team โค๏ธ

Pros:

Great design // Easy to use // Super versatile

Cons:

It's addictive... but I am bias.

Being able to add gift ideas from outside Amazon is the best part. For example for this Xmas I have tickets to the Boston Symphony on a list for my Dad; a massage certificate (at a local place) for my Mom. The massage place doesn't really have a website so I couldn't use my browser plugin, but they have an option to manually add gifts into the app. I liked that feature.

The browser plugin works really well, I can add a gift to any of my lists while browsing. I typically add like crazy then sort through ideas in the app.

I was also recently looking to buy a boat for our family and kept track of options on Craigslist using Gift Hero.

Pros:

I can add from outside Amazon, that's key for me.

Cons:

Is a native app on the horizon?

Johannes, thanks for your review. A native app is on the horizon, we expect to have a simple "adder" app by the end of February where you can easily and quickly add to a selected list on a smartphone.

Thanks for the feedback Craig, we expect to have an "adder" app by the end of February. It'll make tagging and adding super easy on your smartphone.

Great for keeping lists for self/others organized... really easy to use.

Pros:

Best Wish List out there

Cons:

Lots of cool features they could add down the road, but nothing bad to say about what's there.

I use Gift Hero for a number of things. Planning out Christmas/Birthday/Anniversary present lists is great because once I've filled them up I can easily share them with Grandparents, Aunts/Uncles, etc and never have to worry about duplicate presents or endless texts coordinating who will buy what.

However, my favorite thing to do on Gift Hero is use it as a place to daydream about the things I'm saving up for. Recently I started building out a small home recording studio and it's difficult to track all the little things I need to get up and running. I used Gift Hero as a place to organize everything I needed. It gave me an easy way to track how far along things were coming and prioritize my next purchase. Plus, bonus, I could share it with the people in my life who know they could easily pick something off of my list and I'd be happy as a clam with my gift.

Pros:

Insanely flexible - I can add products from any site and even things that aren't online at all.

Cons:

The core functionality I need is all there. I look forward to seeing which features they add in the future.
