How do I convince my family to join?

Join a group

To find an existing group use the Member Search box at the top of the page. Enter a first name, last name or email address of the person whose group you wish to join.

When you find a match, you have the opportunity to request to join their group. Click on request membership. If you are logged in, your request is sent to the group creator. If not, you’ll be prompted to log in or sign up.

Once the group creator approves your request you’ll receive notice that you’re in! You’ll instantly be able to view and reserve gifts on others lists, and they can see yours.
