Simple Wishlists for Weddings, Birthdays etc.


Are you looking for a clean and simple solution to display your wedding gift registry on your website or just want to create a wishlist for your birthday or other occasions?
WPGiftRegistry easily lets you add gifts to your wishlist and embed it anywhere with a shortcode. Each gift is displayed with an image, a title, a description, the price and a product link. More importantly, people can indicate if they already bought the gift (so nobody else does).

WPGiftRegistry comes with a nice design and is built responsively so it displays nicely on all devices.

Disclaimer: As this is a free plugin, some of your product links may be transformed into affiliate links.


  • The embedded wishlist
  • Gift reservation overlay
  • Setting up the wishlist in the backend
  • An expanded wishlist item in the backend


  1. Upload the wpgiftregistry directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Create wishlists through the new backend menu titled “Wishlists”
  4. Place your shortcode (e.g. [wishlist id='49']) anywhere in your content, to display the wishlist

If you want to display a list with links to each of your wishlists, use the shortcode [wishlist id='all'].


What features are we planning for future releases?

  • A color picker for customizing the wishlist colors
  • Email notifications
  • Filtering
  • Potentially PayPal integration

Plugin tries to add referral links, which is broken and needs some manual fixing. Also, the CSS includes google fonts, which is a GDPR violation (but easily fixed). Even so, the plugin worked pretty well, thanks.

hi there, nice, works as intended to create a simple wish list. Indeed would be nice to have some kind of notifications, but that sounds like a lot of coding work. Thanks for coding this.

The creator is not active and doesn’t respond to issues. They have added in code to change all your links to affiliate links with their own affiliate code which half the time breaks the links.

It’s easy to use, and it looks nice. It is, however, difficult to style the elements, as everything in the style is set to !important. It would be nice if they were removed. Furthermore, it would be nice if the users could edit their given gifts in case they made a mistake or changed their mind.

There’s no plugin like it, it’s perfect for the job! I ran into a small bug, but the developer was able to fix it within a few hours.
