Frequently Asked Questions
What is WishSlate?
WishSlate is a super-handy app that lets you create your own wish list with items from any store.
Even better? You can add friends on the app to share + browse each other’s wish lists. This makes gift shopping a breeze.
We’ll also send you reminders if a friend of yours is about to celebrate a birthday or if they add something new to their wish list.
This social feature is what sets our app apart from the rest.

Why should I follow a friend?
Following a friend is a great option, because it means you’ll get notified each time they update their wish list. You’ll also get reminded when they’re about to celebrate a birthday. This makes shopping for gifts — and remembering special occasions — super simple. Think of it just like any other social network: Following someone lets you stay connected.

Why did you make WishSlate?
WishSlate CEO Jaison Dolvane created the app after experiencing the common problem of anxiety around gift-giving.
He explained: “Throughout the year, my wife would send me links to things that she liked. When it came time to buy something for her birthday, Mother’s Day, or Christmas, I found myself frantically searching for the links or not getting the product delivered on time. I’d usually wait until the last minute, rush to find something, go over my budget and settle for a gift I was not completely sure she would like.”
After identifying this common problem, Jaison developed WishSlate as a practical solution, revolutionizing the way people shop and gift.
