The Best Christmas Wish List Helps Build Your Village


Your dream lists can be visible by yourself-only, fellow list administrators-only, or you and those who have your special link. Parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles can manage Christmas wish list(s) together.


Finaly a place where you can be yourself! No ads, special offers, or spam email. The best gift ideas are inspired by your true interests, a pinch of creativity, and love. DreamList is built by our family for all families.


The first time a grandma called us, because the gift she wanted to buy was out of stock, we found her another retailer in minutes. Today, we work to give your friends and family multiple retailer options, so you can compare prices and fulfill more dreams together.


We're not a store, so we support all retailers and service providers. Share one DreamList link with friends and connect all of your other wishlists & registries to prevent repeats. Add classes, experience gifts, museum memberships, charities, 529 plans, and whatever matters to you. Ask friends to make their DreamLists too! Knowing what matters to loved ones matters!


Send some of your Christmas love to a friend battling tough times, or a family, or hundreds of families! Your friends and family can contribute to their lists directly. DreamList has been powering massive gift drives and direct giving campaigns by moms, foundations, and organizations supporting families recovering from economic troubles and almost every natural disaster since Hurricane Harvey.

Christmas wish list, gift ideas, and gift guide for families

Every family has people who are easy and people who are really hard to shop for this Christmas. DreamList is on a mission to help everyone get more meaningful gifts that are both memorable and thoughtful, so here are some tips we've surfaced from fellow parents.

A common wisdom suggests: "Something they want, something they need, something to wear, and something to read." To rock Christmas 2024 season you can confidently also add "something to do", and "something they dream about" to the list:

  • Enourage pre-schoolers to write down their ideas on paper or our free printable christmas wish list and share a photo of it with family on DreamList
  • Contribute to fund something they are saving for
  • Get them a membership to a local zoo or museum they really enjoy.
  • An experience they have never had, or even better, that you can do togehter.

Gifts for a Baby

Congratulations for the new baby in your life! Since babies appreciate the wrapping paper more than the contents, the first year in the little one's life is a unique opportunity for a new parent, aunt, uncle, gradnparent or friend to contribute to something that makes a real difference in the life this wonderful bundle of joy. Use their first Christmas or build a Christmas wish list to add things they will appreciate later on. No matter how pretty, clothes are that age are outgrown in a month or two, and the right toy that is not a repeat can be hard to get. Here are 10 ideas that make a perfect gift for a baby:

  1. Start a 529 College Savings plan and direct families to it to contribute small amounts over time.
  2. Create a UTMA savings or brokerage account for the little one and put money you would have spent on toys into a high-earning stocks or bonds. Make sure to pick stocks that you believe hold long-term potential, because selling stocks and creating a liquidity event will require tax filings on behalf of your little one for that tax year. We are not financial advisors, so pleace consult one before investing.
  3. A membership to the local zoo for the family. The parents will need a place to take the little one for a walk
  4. Coupons for gift of help or adventure you can give to the parents.
  5. Cloth books - the more crinkly fun the book has, the better. Babies love to hold and play with those up until age 1.
  6. A box of kleenex they can empty all by themselves, one napkin at a time. Since babies are never allowed to pull napkins out of boxes, they will have fun for hours under the watchful eye of adults who can take napkins out of their mouths if needed!

Christmas gifts for a 1 or 2 year old girl or boy

The sight of a gift wrapped in a gift box will beam smiles on the faces of kids that are more precious than jewlery. Toddlers are much easier to please than babies.

  1. Add to their 529 plan or savings account.
  2. Buy toy sets they can build with. From Magnatiles, to Lego Duplos (remember, children under age 3 may swallow small pieces, so keep the lego blocks big), to wooden blocks and toy trains.
  3. A membership to the local zoo, or children's museum for the family.
  4. Coupons for an adventure together, a lecture by you that will teach the little boy or girl something they can brag to friends about - from drawing to feeding goats at the local petting zoo, to playing a simple tune on a xylophone.
  5. Books - from board books to story books, they can enjoy daily.

Christmas gifts for a 3-10 year old

Little ones are excited to write and send a letter to Santa! Enourage young children to write down their ideas on paper on our free printable christmas wish list and share a photo of it with family on DreamList. We will gladly import the list for you and Santa to your dream lists.

Ask the parents to create their DreamList already!

Christmas gifts for a teenage girl or boy

Teens are busy building their identity around friends and the rest of the world, so definitely ask them for their DreamList link.

  1. Add to their 529 plan or savings account. They'll need it soon.
  2. Ask if they want help with college applications or prep
  3. Legos of all types (though ask for characters they are into first)
  4. Teach them a useful skill. They will cherish the memory and maybe even use it to make extra cash in the future.
  5. Books.

Achieve Dreams Together

"I wish this page could ... " (send us your thoughts!)

DreamList is the first free, privacy-first, ads-free collaborative online wishlist and registry designed for families by families.

Unlike a regular registry, your dream lists can link to any retailer, wish list, registry, experience, activity, or a larger pursuit, so loved ones know what is truly meaningful to you. Then, they can reserve a gift or contribute a partial ammount towards your bigger dreams and bring them closer to reality with every special occasion. Manage dream lists in private or as a team. Create pages previewing multiple wish lists with one link for grandparents, gift drives, or organizations. Share one link with family, that they can refer back to for every special occasion, for life!

Foundations, charitable organizations, schools, and disaster recovery teams also use DreamList to direct goodwill to hundreds of families at scale since Hurricane Harvey, also for free.

We are successful only when you are, and that makes all the difference!
