Create a Royal Wedding Gift Registry and add a link on your Facebook page

Royal Wedding announced by Prince William and Kate Middleton

Royal Wedding announced by Prince William and Kate Middleton

Weddings are always fun and exciting and Royal Weddings are no exception.  So now that Prince William has announced officially that he is to marry Kate Middleton the fun begins.

You can join in the fun right here at YouCouldgetMe.  How?

Imagine that you are one of the Royal Couple and create your very own wedding registry gift list. Where would you shop? What gifts are appropriate for a Royal Wedding? Do you just try and think of the most fantastic gifts imaginable?

This is what you need to do:

  1. Create a special account using a unique User Name and Email Address at YouCouldGetMe. If you currently have an account at YouCouldGetMe then use a separate account for your Royal Wedding gift list.
  2. Add an introduction with a category heading “Royal Wedding Gift Registry”.
  3. Let the fun begin. Go on a virtual shopping spree adding anything you find and deem to be appropriate for Your Royal Wedding.
  4. Add a link to your Facebook page. See How to link to your wish list.
  5. Tweet a link to your friends.
  6. Add a comment to this post linking back to your Royal Wedding Gift Registry.

You can do this yourself, with a group of friends, or even as an office department effort.

If you enjoyed the experience then you will certainly have just as much fun creating your own wish list, wedding registry or baby shower on YouCouldGetMe.

Christmas is coming and we all want to make sure that Santa knows exactly what we want.

Youcouldgetme has added a new feature which enables you to upload your own pictures. This means that you can have a picture for each item in your wish list, or only selected items, maybe just the ones that you really want.

Another benefit of this new feature is the ability to add a profile or introduction to your wish list. See example on the view wish lists page. To do this:

  1. Create a new category, name it something like “Introduction”; “Profile”; or something you find to be most appropriate.
  2. Move this category to the top of the list, assuming that you want your profile/introduction at the top of the page.
  3. Add a new item to this category.
  4. Use the Link text as the heading.
  5. Use the Link URL to Link to your own wish list; see how to do this here.
  6. Add what ever you have to say in the notes section.
  7. Click the add Gift Item.
  8. To add a picture to your profile or introduction see this page.

Adding pictures to your wish list provides much more visual impact and certainly makes your wish list more interesting.

Your ‘you could get me’ wish list is also a great place to bookmark products you will buy for yourself or others at some point in the future. Even items you spot at work that you want to review when you get home. Simply add the item to your wish list, I add them to a specific category “Reminders”, and in the section ‘who can see this item’, select the option “Only Selected Friends and Family”. If you do not specify which friends or family then only you can see these items.

Remember it is much much easier to add items to your wish list using the bookmarklet.

Best Wishes for Christmas 2010
