The holidays are sneaking up on us rather quickly this year. It’s hard to imagine that Christmas will be here in just over 2 very short months. I’ve been asking myself where this past year has gone because I swear I just put my decorations away from last year!
Since gift giving season is here, I really need to get a jump on my shopping so that I’m not bombarded with a ton of gifts to buy the week before Christmas; which happens almost every year. I’m pretty good at knowing what the people in my life will like, but there are people who I have no idea what to buy for Christmas.
That’s where the Reverse Wishlist from pick UR gift comes in handy for me. I can create a list of gift ideas for them and they can tell me which of those ideas they would like.
Signing up is super easy and you’ll get a step by step walk through explaining how to create your “Reverse Wishlist” like the one in the image below.
Then you’ll see a page for instructions on how to install the UR button for the browser that you use. It is so simple that even this not so tech savvy girl can do it!
Set up was that easy and now it’s time for the best part – shopping! Well, window shopping for ideas, but shopping nonetheless! You can choose your favorite store, mine happens to be Amazon for this particular gift recipient – my son. He just upgraded his motocross bike and needs some new stuff to match, such as decals, a helmet and riding pants. I found the decal kit that I liked and added it to my gift page for him.
To select a gift to add to your Reverse Wishlist, just click your UR button and a menu will appear to the right, like in the photo below. Then you will select who you are shopping for, which gift page you want it added to, then select the correct image and “Add Gift”.
Before I knew it, I already had a bunch of stuff in my Reverse Wishlist for him, packed full of Christmas gift ideas. Although this is just a start of my ideas, it will help me to get a better feel for what he really wants most out of all the motocross gear. The stuff gets rather costly, so getting him brand new gear all at once is not an option! He does have his old gear to get him by and protect himself for now.
I have a few other people in mind that I would like to create a Reverse Wishlist for because I just know it will help me find the perfect gift – something they will actually want instead of tossing into a corner. I don’t know about you, but I feel as if I wasted hard earned money when a recipient doesn’t like what I’ve given them!
After a little playing around, I realized that I can make my own wishlist to share with my family and friends. Now that is super exciting too! I wish I had found this website last week when everyone was asking me what Big Bro wanted for his birthday. Instead of having to ask him, then him responding with “I don’t know”; I could have set him up on the computer, showed him the ropes and told him to start looking for things he wanted. I could have shared the link with our friends and family, so there would have been no questions left unanswered! I mean c’mon, what in the world do you get a 14 year old boy??
Now that I think about it, I will have each of the boys create a list for Christmas since the calls will start rolling in soon. I think lots of sanity will be saved by people using the pick UR gift website. I know mine certainly will be!
