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 quality item. In these situations, a wish list can be helpful.

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

Here’s everything you need to know about Amazon wishlists.
