    What is a buddy?

    On GiftsList.co.uk you can nominate people you know to be a buddy, adding them to your buddy list on your homepage. This acts as a bookmark to the gifts lists of your nominated friends and family, so you can access them at the click of a button. Your buddies will also be sent emails just before your birthday and in the run up to Christmas to remind them to look at your gift list. If you are invited to be another member's buddy you will receive the same emails regarding their list.

    You can only nominate people who are registered users of the site as buddies, this protects the running of the site and the information of our members.

    To nominate a buddy go to the buddy page.

    Why do I need to sign up?

    There are a number of reasons why we ask you to sign up. The main reason is to protect the lists of our members. Signing up means that if someone abuses the system by spoiling someone's list they can be prevented from coming onto the site again. Signing up also allows you to be able to link to other people you know by making them a buddy. Finally, being a registered member allows us to be able to administer your account, and keep you informed of any changes we are making to the service.
