This week, we’re covering another Christmas list topic: how to share them with family & friends. Making wish lists, especially for the holiday season, truly serves the best purpose when you’re using them socially.

Knowing how to share Christmas lists with loved ones means that they have an easy, ready-to-go, list of gift ideas for you. And when you can see theirs too, it makes life easier on you, too. Having both happen simultaneously is where it really gets fun!

Using wish lists ensures that the gift-giver has practical and helpful gift ideas. It helps reduce gift waste and prevent the dreaded re-gifting cycle (when someone gives your gift away to someone else).

So, here’s how to share your Xmas list with your friends and family:
