Create wishlists – Give perfect gifts – Suggest gifts
Who knows best what to give you? You do. Add gifts to your wishlist with photos, descriptions and/or links – whatever you desire and someone can provide. Share with friends and family or just your partner and they'll share with you. Find "gift ideas" maybe for yourself or suggest it to a friend. The best gift is just around the corner.
Gifting is cultural
Gifting has had a special place in all cultures around the world and Gift me something hopes to make that all the more frequent and valued. Often people have given up on gifting because they don't know what the other person wants or doesn't have already. Gift me something puts an end to that by encouraging people to list what they want, be it specific or general. Giving and receiving is a treat for both persons and surprise is often just the fact that someone took the time out to make another feel good. To have gifting work for old and young, be hip and traditional, work with family and acquaintances is the goal – give a gift today!
Home, sweet NEW home
After so many years sharing an apartment, the momento has arrived to go out and have your own. Finally you can decorate your apartment as you like and have always dreamed. You like the minimalist style and have spent years visiting stores and dog-earring magazines. You’ve known for a while the type of sofa you’d like and the lamp and table. Your Friends, knowing your strong opinions are afraid to buy you anything in case they guess wrong. So give them some help and create a Gift me something list and let them surprise you with things you really need.
Does anyone know you collect comics? What kind of comics, Marvel, DC or IDC? Maybe one of your friends collects the same. It's fun to know people's hobbies and surprise them with another addition even it's a porcelain horse or signed football. In Gift me something you can specify a specific thing you might want or you can be general and just say you like old coins or stamps. Who knows, telling other people about your collection might bring in a find from some friend who didn't know they had something of interest to you.
Baby shower help
Baby showers are difficult sometimes but here's a couple clues: mom is overworked and doing things she hasn't necesarily done before, so anything you can do for her is also for the baby. Offering to take care of the baby is probably number one. Babies make messes so extra towels, blankets, pads are always helpful. Get the mom to make her wishlist so you all know where and when she could use some help or what things she's missing. Giving a hand doesn't need to be a guessing game, that's where Gift me something comes in.
Surprise the adventurer!
We all have a friend that loves the outdoors. Walking in the forests and mountains is their greatest desire each weekend and they've got a closet is full of accessories for any weather, terrain or adventure. Giving them something is a challenge, finding that particular something that they don't have already. Enter a wishlist on Gift me something – ask them to fill it out and they'll be sure to surprise you with a solar charger or USB burner that'll be all the difference to them when enjoying those days out in the wild.
Take 'em out to the Spa
The weekend after my wife finished the launch at work I woke her up Saturday morning with a Cinnamon Latte and croissant and told her we're going out to the spa in the mountains she's always wanted to visit and after the treatment we'd go to our favorite restaurant in the valley. The kids had everything under control and knew where we're be. It was a wonderful day and we were back in the afternoon for a relaxed rest of the day and some television in the evening. She loved the gift and wisecracked that it must have been a big chore for me – haha. I agreed.
Surprise! I’ve got a modern grandmother
I always thought my grandmother was only interested in sewing and cooking until this year she uploaded her Gift me something list.
- An iPad mini (recipes come as videos now!)
- A day at the spa (the neighbors stress her so)
- The last season of Game of Thrones (she’s forgotten last year and they take so long…)
- The latest U2 album
This was a pleasant surprise – who would’ve thought I had a grandmother so modern.
