About the bookmarklet

A bookmarklet is a special link that executes a small amount of javascript code that will allow you to add items from any website directly to one of your lists. The Big Gift List would like to assure you that the bookmarklet is perfectly safe and doesn't pass any personal information to our servers.

A new pop-up will appear (you may need to configure you browser to allow the pop-up to display), if you aren't currently logged in to your account you will be asked to do so. Once logged in you will be able to fill in the details for the item and select the list you want to add it to. Your done. The window can be closed and you can continue browsing the web.
