This post is part of a sponsored campaign with Those Media Girls and Pick UR Gift. All opinions are my own.
With the holiday season fast approaching, I am finalizing my Christmas gift list. I love Christmas shopping. It is always so much fun until I get to the one person that I have no idea what to buy. My sister-in-law is the hardest person to shop for. She’s never satisfied with anything I buy.
Over the years I’ve picked out gifts and it went like this:
Gift Card – “There’s never anything worth buying in that store.”
DVD’s – “These movies are full of terrible actors.”
Kitchen Gadgets – “Now I have to cook.”
Electronics – “Brand XYZ is much better.”
Just the thought of picking out a gift for her makes me cringe. So, when I had the opportunity to try out pick UR gift, a website that helps you eliminate the guesswork and get the right gift with the Reverse Wishlist I was all in.
Gift Giving Made Easy
What is the Reverse Wishlist you ask? Let me tell you about it. It is a list of gift ideas that you can create using the UR Button, a bookmarklet that is added to your browsers favorites or bookmarks bar. Sounds easy right? It was. Take a look for yourself:
After registering, I followed the quick and easy instructions to install the UR Button to my favorites bar in chrome. Once that was done I was ready to visit websites, and save gift ideas for my sister-in-law.
When I started shopping for my sister-in-law, I started with one of my favorite stores, Macy’s. When I found a product I thought she wouldn’t complain too much about, I clicked on the UR button and added it to the Reverse Wishlist that I made for her. Once you find a product you like it takes less than a minute to add it. Simply select who you are shopping for, the gift page you want it added to, the correct image of the item, and then select add your gift. There is also a gift description section where you can add additional information about the gift if you like. I used it to jot down the current price the products were selling for at the time I added them.
Did you notice that I only added Kitchen products? One of the many gifts she previously complained about. I figure if she’s going to complain to my brother about my gift he might as well get a good meal while he listens.
You can also set up a wish list so friends and family know what to get for you too. How cool is that? I wish I would have known about this last month when everyone was asking me what I wanted for my birthday. I might have found out too late for my birthday, but I was able to help my grandma create a list for hers.
Holiday shopping should not be stressful. So if you are buying a gift for one of the hardest people you’ve ever had to shop for spare yourself the misery, and give the Reverse Wishlist a try.
