    I will raise this to our developers as a feature request since it seems that you are not able to remove the CHECKED/UNCHECKED from the widgets properties.

    Once, if, this is implemented you will be updated in regards to it through this thread.

    Now I would like to suggest using the Gift Registry widget instead. This would look like the checklist widget, but would only send you the email containing the selected items.

    If you do opt yourself for that option, there are 2 things that I would like to mention and they are:

    1. you do not need to setup API key unless you want to limit the number of entries that can be selected overall
    2. to hide the items left count, just apply this CSS code through the Custom CSS field at the end of the widgets wizard:


    .items-left {
        display: none;

    The widget has been updated with an option to submit only the items that have been checked: 

    Please try out the new feature and share your experience.
