39 Genius Items That Are Most Added To Amazon Wish Lists
The internet is filled with copious amounts of things that you really want to impulsively buy after a few glasses of wine, but probably shouldn't (at least not all at once). Consequently, wish lists are a glorious thing to keep track of all the things you want but your bank account can't allow yet, and Amazon's Most Wished For page is a particular goldmine of items that people are dying to get their hands on.
If you're looking for some gift ideas or a trendy new purchase, this is the place to find it. It's where people bookmark all those genius gadgets, beauty products, and housewares that are definitely worth waiting for, so it's an awesome place to shop around and see what other folks are falling in love with at the moment.
Here's how it works: Amazon tallies up how often a product is added to wish lists and registries and puts it in list form for your viewing pleasure. The page is updated daily, so things are constantly changing, though there are a few products that have been there for months, indicating that people just can't get over how damn awesome they are. It's also broken up into categories, so you can find something as specific as "the most wished for women's jumpsuit," should you want to. Here are some of the coolest items that have been at the top of the charts lately.
