Wishlist HOW TO

Wishlists are tricky on Elfster and it can be confusing. We ask that you follow these simple instructions.

  1. Make a list outside of Elfster. You can pick specific items from Hermosa shops or be general and list restaurants and shops you like. You do NOT have to be specific. Your list should have at least three and we'd like to recommend one of them be a restaurant since we've just heard about the outdoor dining closures. For example, I might put Uncorked Wine Shop, the "butter" ornament from Curious, socks from Fritz and Chewy, and Hermosa Brewing Company (offering $25 giftcard for $20). HermosaOne has a full listing of all businesses in Hermosa - not to mention those that are offering discounts for this project (scroll below to see them listed). So please do some thinking and shopping first! You have until November 30.
  2. Find the links for all three of those items. If they are specific items, make it easy on your shopper and grab those specific links to those items so they can buy online! Those would be:
    https://uncorkedhermosa.com/
    https://www.shopcuriousworkshop.com/captains-crew-ornament.html
    https://www.fritznchewy.com/product-page/rainbow-sock-white
    https://squareup.com/gift/P6S8QC1CS61TE/order
  3. Go to your wishlist on Elfster, click "add to my wishlist" button, and click the "MORE OPTIONS" button next to the search bar. Paste your links in there one at a time and complete the form for each item! Easy! (see image below for how it looks on desktop)
