Gift Certificates

When you find yourself in doubt about the perfect book cover pattern to buy for that special gift, we offer a way out of your dilemma with our Gift Certificate option. Just look to the top-right corner of any page throughout the website for the “Gift Certificate’ link.

You can set any amount you like for your gift, and send it directly to your gift recipient with an e-card that includes your special message. Your recipient will receive your e-card with their gift-voucher code and a link to the Hidden Secrets website for shopping and making their book cover purchases. They simply plug in their gift certificate code at checkout.

You don’t have to be a Shopping Member to send your gift certificates. If you have someone in mind, go here to Purchase Your Gift Certificate...

If you are a shopping member with Hidden Secrets, you can even follow up by sharing with your gift recipient a wish list of the pattern choices you couldn’t quite decide between...

Wish Lists - How To Create and Share

You must be a Shopping Member in order to create wish lists. Find out more about the benefits of becoming a member below.

It’s easy to create and share your wish lists. You can create as many wish lists as you like, and share (via email) with whomever you want.

At the product page for each individual item, you’ll notice a button in the (upper-right) sidebar that says “Add To Wish List”. Once you click to add the item, you will be asked to add it to either an existing wish list (you’ve already created) or a new wish list will be created for you that you can rename.

To share your wish list with friends and family, simply log in to your account (if you aren’t already), click the ‘Wish List’ link under Manage Your Account, and click the edit button of the wish list you want to share. From here you can rename your wish list to your liking, and enable your wish list for sharing. A dedicated share-link URL will be assigned and be available with each of your wish lists you enable for sharing. When you’re ready to send, simply copy and paste your share-link URL into an email and send it to whomever you want to share your list with.

Easy & Secure Checkout

We use a one-page checkout system. When you've finished your shopping and are ready for checkout, we trust you'll find our checkout process to be intuitive and user-friendly.

Our website/shopping platform is among those systems that are setting the standard for the online shopping experience, and functions much like what you'll find, or may already know, on Amazon. We offer fast and secure checkout, with a PCI-compliant system that you can trust to protect your privacy, and your financial identity.

Our one-page checkout system guides you through the process and keeps all steps in front of you for easy reference along the way. You won't find our checkout process cluttered with up-sells that try to get you to buy this and buy that before completing your purchase. Whatever you've decided to purchase during shopping is what you'll be processing through your checkout experience.
