(Giveaway) Reverse Wishlist PickURgift makes Christmas shopping easier

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

It’s the beginning of December and I’m trying to go Christmas shopping for my nieces. They already made their wishlist for Santa, but guess what? They’re 5 & 10 and completely adorable, but not the most specific when it comes to telling Aunt Jenni what they want for Christmas.

Take my niece Isabel for example. She really wants a play kitchen this year. That seems pretty simple.

Until you realize that there are TONS of different play kitchens out there and some are really expensive. Now I’m trying to narrow down the options to guess which one she’ll like best that actually fits my budget.

That’s where PickURgift comes in. It’s a really neat bookmarklet took that you can use to create a reverse wishlist that allows recipients (or your niece’s mom, in this case) to choose from a list of items YOU’VE selected for them to pick from.

How Does PickURgift Work?

PickURgift is a reverse wishlist app. You can create profiles for people you’re shopping for, then add items to their potential gift list that you find while browsing on the internet using their simple bookmarklet tool (a little button you add to your web browser).

Creating My Reverse Wishlist

Since I’m shopping for my niece Isabel, I bookmarked several gift ideas for her list while I was shopping for the other kids over Black Friday weekend. Since I lot of the bigger play kitchens were outside of my budget, I included a few alternate gift ideas, too. I wanted to make sure I had a good selection to choose from, without making it confusing with too many options.

Making The Right Gift Choice

Now the best part – the final step for me was sending her mom the list so she could let me know which gift Isabel would like best this Christmas. I was able to send her a unique link to my PickURgift reverse wishlist so she could view all of the items I had saved as ideas for Isabel, then reply back with her comments. I even received an email alert to let me know I had received a new comment.

Best Gift Within My Budget

Voila! Her mom helped me pick the best play kitchen to buy out of the 3 that were on my PickURgift list. Since I had created the list, I knew it was within my Christmas gift budget this year. Plus, I get to keep her big present a surprise until she opens it on Christmas day.

If you are buying for older kids, you can send them the PickURgift reverse wishlist link directly to let them pick out their gifts themselves.

Did I Mention It’s Free?

PickURgift is a FREE service. All you have to do is visit their site, register for a free account, and install their bookmarklet tool in a few easy steps.

    This is such a great way to share what my kids want and need with family. Especially family that is sending gifts from afar. A lot of them would rather send more personal gifts rather than gift cards or certificates. But sometimes it is hard to explain exactly what the kids want. Now I can gather everything in one place and just email it and they can view if for themselves. I am super excited about this!

  3. I love this concept and wish that I had it YEARS ago. It sounds like you picked out the perfect play kitchen for your niece. I bet she will love it.

  4. I’ve used this twice already, in that I sent the link to two of my adult children, and I have to tell you, it made things so much easier. I usually just send a check every year, and I’ll do that again this year, but at least they have something to unwrap as well! I love how simple this makes gift giving especially for loved ones who live on the other side of the country!
