    This is my dad's ex - somehow, $20 worth of "it-breaks-immediately-so-I-end-up-throwing-it-out" sh!t from The Christmas Tree Shoppe or wherever is preferable to a single $20 toy or set of books on DD's WishList, which I keep updated because it's easier to send a link to family who want to know specific things than it is to remember who got which chunk of what list when ...

    Just a quick suggestion—rather than sending the whole list to any one individual/couple, perhaps just provide one item (with detail/specifics). Then, they might do $/gift card + the single specific item.

    I personally hate gift cards for kids, but I guess I am the exception. My DD has 2 we just found while cleaning that are now useless (store went out of business) and she has lost/misplaced several over the years.
