It was with some horror that I read a newspaper article in October which said that in 2009 Australians spent nearly $1 billion on “unwanted Christmas gifts”… [it went on to say that "scented candles, novelty neck ties and foot spas (were) the most spurned items"]. To read the article click on the image at the bottom of this post.
So, I spoke to our clever web guy and he’s developed a Queen B Wishlist function on our website. O.K. so we’re not creating world peace with this one, but it’s got to be a step in the right direction if we had more people burning Queen B candles! Imagine how easy it would make things if the people you loved just told you exactly what they wanted for Christmas… or their birthday… or Valentines Day… or just because?
The Wishlist function is extremely simple to use, but only works when you are logged in to your account.
To create your wishlist, visit the Queen B website and log in to your account (in the right hand menu bar). Now when you browse through the site, you’ll notice that each product has the option to “Add to Cart” or “Add to Wishlist”. Once you’ve created your wishlist, you then have the option of emailing it to all and sundry via the beautifully simple email tool we’ve got, or there is a link you can copy and paste into an email of your own creation.

Goodness gracious, Happy Days! You get your wishes come true and gifts that are exactly what you want and truly useful, and your family and friends get to play genie in a bottle.
This is version 1. If you hit any bugs in the system or have suggestions for improvement, please pop me an email. If you just want to tell Adam (clever web guy) that he is a genius, feel free to do that too. I declared undying (platonic) love a little earlier this evening!
And now for the article that set our Wishlist functionality in train…
