How to Create and Share an Amazon Teacher Wish List

Classroom educators shoulder a significant financial burden each year when purchasing supplies for their classrooms. Many of us have turned to Amazon as a convenient option for acquiring classroom items. However, if you’re tired of spending your own money to enhance your classroom and curriculum, I highly recommend exploring the Amazon Wish List feature. This innovative tool has quickly become a game changer for teachers worldwide. In fact, I’ve already had parents purchase multiple items from my own Amazon Teacher Wish List. (It’s worth mentioning that other websites like Target, Oriental Trading, and GiftYou also offer wish lists and registries.)

Creating Your Amazon Teacher Wish List

You can effortlessly create a Wish List by visiting the Accounts & Lists tab located in the top right-hand corner of the Amazon website. From there, click on “Create a List” to set up a new list dedicated specifically to your classroom. Once your list is created, you can manage it by clicking the three dots on the right-hand side. This allows you to customize various list settings, including changing the mailing address to your school. By doing so, you won’t need to transport the items from home!

Adding Items to Your Amazon Teacher Wish List

Once your list is set up, it’s time to indulge in some virtual shopping. As you browse through Amazon, simply add items to your list by using the drop-down menu labeled “add to list.” You’ll find this option at the bottom of the right-hand sidebar, just below the “Buy Now” buttons. It’s incredibly fun and easy!

How to Share Your Amazon Classroom Wish List

After creating your wish list, you can share it with your network in two ways. First, you can press the “Invite” button at the top left to send invitations directly to email addresses. Alternatively, you can use the “Send List to Others” link at the top right and share the list by copying and pasting the link wherever you please. It’s essential to note that while some teachers may not be able to ask students’ families to contribute to their lists, you can personally share it with your own family and friends if they are willing to chip in.

Upon sharing, your list will change from private to shared, allowing only those with the link to view it. If you set the list to public, anyone can donate items to your classroom, regardless of whether you shared the link or not. The decision to make your list public or private depends entirely on your comfort level. In either case, gift-givers have the option to include their name on the packing slip or remain anonymous.

Where to Share Your Amazon Wish List

Wondering where to share your wish list? Consider platforms like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, and LinkedIn. When posting on social media, make use of relevant hashtags such as #clearthelist2023, #clearthelist, and #PostForPencils. If permitted, include the list in your classroom or school newsletter. You can also send emails or messages through your parent communication app. Remember to check with PTAs or local community groups as they often purchase items from teacher wish lists. We’re even offering a free image that you can download and share along with your personalized link.
