Wishlisting.com is a free online service that makes the often frustrating experience of gift giving (and receiving) simple and fun. By creating a list of gift ideas and sharing it with friends and family, wishlisters are able to give and receive the perfect gift for every occasion. Wishlisters continue to shop at their favorite online stores and are able to add any item to their wishlist by clicking a browser button located in their browser's toolbar. Friends and family then use the wishlist to view gift ideas, share opinions, purchase a gift from the store with best price, or see which gifts have already been purchased. It's perfect for the birthdays, holidays, showers, weddings, or any other gift-giving occasion.
The Wishlisting Team
Wishlisting was founded by Tom Lianza and John Hildenbiddle, a developer and designer team located in Seattle, Washington. The inspiration for Wishlisting came from Tom's frustration with other wishlist services and the frustrations John's sister shared with him after trying to create on online wedding registry. The developer (Tom) and designer (John) decided they could build something better, and began collaborating on site a site to make the gift giving and receiving process simple and fun for everyone. A few months later Wishlisting.com was launched as a free service online.
Tom spent several years as an engineer at Cisco Systems and F5 Networks prior to joining Wishlisting. Tom writes the "behind the scenes" code that makes Wishlisting possible, and does his best to keep John focused on the tasks at hand.
