Father’s Day Is Coming — Have You Made Your Wishlist Yet?
Geek dads from Gotham to Krypton, Father’s Day is soon! And like every year, you deserve something special. Sideshow is here to help you help your family find the perfect gift. Because whatever your unique geek style is, Sideshow.com has something you’re guaranteed to love.
Get what you want this June — no investigative journalism required! Using our “Sideshow Wishlist” and “Drop a Hint” functions, you can assemble your ideal Avengers collection, unite the Justice League on your shelf, or form a rebellion of Star Wars™ collectibles. Then you can share that list with friends, partners, coworkers, and even your greatest nemesis! It’s the perfect way to let the people in your life know how to celebrate you.
So, how does it work?
Take the guesswork out of collecting with personalized and strategized wishlists! First, you will need a Sideshow.com account, which also allows you to access 5% in rewards on purchases, flexible payment plans, and more. Once signed into your account, you will be able to add any item on our website to your own personal account Wish List.
You can create a Wish List through your Account Page or by adding items to a new Wish List. View our detailed tutorial for creating Wish Lists on our Why You Should Create a Sideshow Wish List blog.
Once you’ve created your lists, you can visit your account page and set those lists as private (for your eyes only) or public, which can be shared with friends and family.
Don’t delay! Start and share a Wish List before Father’s Day on June 19 for your best chance to get what you actually want. ‘Cause ties are great, but sixth scale figures in boxes tied with bows? Those are even better.
Drop a Hint
The “Drop a Hint” function allows you to directly send a gentle push to your loved ones with all the details for the exact item you want, even without being logged in to a Sideshow account. Let us do the rest of the nudging, winking, and persuading for you.
For the most up to date information on how to use the Drop a Hint feature, check out our Drop a Hint reference page. Then, try it out on some of Sideshow’s exciting in stock collectibles. (Consider this our hint to you!)
