Window shopping may be less common with the rise of online shopping, but that doesn’t mean you’re always ready to buy when you come across a great item. In those situations, a wish list can come in handy. 

If you shop on Amazon, you can create curated lists in your account to remind yourself about items you want — and share them with friends and family to ensure the perfect gift. 

Here’s everything you need to know about Amazon wish lists.
