According to my husband, I am a tough person to shop for. Frankly, I really don’t see it – there are always a million things that I see and would love to buy, but don’t. And honestly, HE’S the one who is tough to buy for! The man never says he wants anything and if he does, he goes out and buys it for himself!! This year, I resorted to just asking him what he wanted and went out and bought it for him. Thanks to this partnership with PickURGift and Brandfluential, that’s about to change! (They are both making this sponsored post and giveaway possible – so three cheers for them!)
I wish I had heard about PickURGift before I did all my Christmas shopping (and hinting). I guess the upside is that we can now use it in time for Valentine’s Day, right? What is PickURGift you are wondering? It’s a brilliant idea in the form of a reverse wish list. Let’s say I am browsing the web and see something I think might make a good gift for Jay (or my mom, friend, anyone really!). Normally I would attempt to make a “mental note” of the gift idea and then inevitably forget what it was. With PickURGift, I can simply click on a little button on my browser bar and add the gift to a page specifically designed for that person. The whole process takes less than 20 seconds and I don’t have to rely on my sketchy memory.
Now you’re probably thinking that this must have been a problem to set up, right? Nope – the set up process is as simple and straightforward as using it is. I had my account set up and an idea page for Jay up and running in less than 5 minutes! (I even added a wish list for myself on there, just to help him out.)
Since I know you are probably now wanting to set up an account for yourself, let me walk you through the process.
1) Go to PickURGift.com and register for an account. No worries – it is totally free.
2) Install the little UR button on your browser bar.
3) Browse your favorite stores online and find gift ideas for your favorite people. When you see a gift idea for someone, just click on the UR button, and create a page for that person. You can add as many gift ideas for that person as you like and you can also create pages for additional people and even a wish list for yourself.
4) Email the list to the person you are shopping for. This is the fun part – the person can then let you know which of the things you picked out are what they are hoping for!
So how much easier will this make Valentine’s Day shopping? I’m thinking a LOT easier!
But wait - there’s more!! Just by creating a PickURGift account, you are registered to win a $250 Amazon gift card. Once you email your list to the potential recipient, you “Power Up” that entry to a possible $500 Amazon gift card win!! Enter below:
