Let me give you an example. Imagine your birthday is just around the corner, and your awesome coworkers want to get you a present. They can check out your wish list and decide which item to buy. They might even decide to pool their resources and get you that fancy piece of tech that you wouldn’t dare buy yourself. Either way, you’re definitely getting something you really want for your birthday.

But wait, there’s more! Teachers have also discovered the greatness of wish lists. They found it to be a fantastic way to guide parents who want to donate to their child’s class. This way, not a single penny will go to waste, and it’s guaranteed to be put to good use. How awesome is that?

Additional Info for Parents

Hey there! Right next to the “Move” and “Delete” choices on the right side of an item in the list, you’ll find the “Add comment, quantity & priority” link. Just click on it to provide more details for each item.

Now, in this menu, you’ll see a place where you can jot down any important info for parents when they want to buy the item. For example, you can mention what the item is for, like “For the school play” or anything else you think might be helpful.

In this menu, there’s also a “Priority” drop-down menu with five different levels, ranging from Lowest to Highest. And next to the priority, there are two more fields called “Quantity” and “Has”. The “Quantity” field tells you how many of that particular item you need, while the “Has” field tells you how many you already have.

After you’re done adding these details, just click on “Save” at the bottom left corner of the menu to go back to the wish list. Amazon will conveniently display all the details right next to each item in your list.

Sharing the Wish List with Parents

Once your Amazon wish list is all set with everything you need to enhance your classes, it’s time to share it with the parents.

On the upper right side of your wish list’s page, you’ll find the “Send list to others” option. When you click on it, a little menu will pop up. In this menu, you can choose whether you want the parents to just view the list or if they can also make edits to it.

Once you’ve made your choice, two links will appear: “Copy Link” and “Invite by email”. If you decide to copy the link, you can paste it wherever you want, like in a dedicated Viber group for the class’ parents. If you choose to invite parents by email, clicking on it will take you to your email account to compose a new email message.

Thanks to Amazon wish lists, suggesting essential class supplies to teachers has never been easier. This also saves parents the trouble of brainstorming what to buy for their child’s class. Plus, with wish lists, parents can simply order everything online and have it delivered straight to the school.
