The holidays are coming and that means giving gifts. I buy more gifts at Christmas than I do the rest of the year and spend a lot of money and time choosing and buying them.
But despite the time and effort I put into all of those many gifts, they always have the chance of being complete failures.
That’s because I buy gifts for friends and family members that I love, but unfortunately don’t get to see enough of. So even if I think I know what someone might really love, I don’t honestly know if they will. Or if they already have one. Or if they would much prefer something else.
When I heard about pick UR gift for the first time, I thought that maybe it could be something to help me with my problem. Then, as I created an account and started playing around with it, I knew it was exactly what I needed.
I can choose several gifts that I think someone might love. I find the items online, add them to their page on my pick UR gift account and they get to choose which gift they get for Christmas. How cool is that?
I chose a few things there that I thought my friend Sarah might like. I know she’s crazy about bracelets, scarves and handbags, but can’t remember which ones she already has. So if she already has a red scarf, she might choose the handbag. If she doesn’t want another brown bag, she might choose the bracelets.
It’s a great way for me to show her the gifts I’d love to give her and for her to choose the one that she would love most.
pick UR gift is going to be perfect for my Christmas present buying this year and it just took seconds to get signed up. I just headed over to pick UR gift and created an account. It’s free, and I just needed to add my name, an account name and password. The I just grabbed the bookmarklet (button) and dragged it right onto my toolbar for easy gift choosing.
And I got started. I headed over to Amazon to look for some things I thought Sarah might like. When I found something, I just clicked on my toolbar button. The pick UR gift window pops up and asks who I’m shopping for. I can click on someone I’ve already saved or create a new person. I quickly add Sarah and create a Christmas gift page for her.
Now, each time I come across something I think Sarah might like for Christmas, I can add it to her reverse gift list in just a few seconds with the pick UR gift bookmarklet on my toolbar. It’s so easy!
When it gets closer to Christmas, I’ll send Sarah the list and let her pick her absolute favorite. I’m excited about it, knowing that she’ll definitely love her gift this year. It’s heartfelt and picked out by me but chosen by her. Very cool.
If you’ve ever gotten a less than stellar gift or worried that someone may not love what you bought them, start using pick UR gift. It’s easy, free, and you’ll be able to relax and enjoy giving gifts you know they’ll love!
