Every year as the holidays start to near my family asks the same question, “What do you want for Christmas?” or “What do the kids want for Christmas?” If you are like me when you are asked that question your mind goes totally blank and you can’t remember a thing. I always say I’m going to write things down during the year so when I’m asked that question I will actually have an answer. However, making lists is really not my thing. Honestly, it is not making the list that is the problem but finding it again when I need it.
I rarely make grocery lists, to do list, or honey do lists. I’m just not much of a list type of person. I recently was asked to review a site called Pick UR Gift, which is a reverse wish list concept. It is a wish list you can either create and send or request from others that they create a wish list for you. It is so easy to use and by installing a UR Button you can create your wish list when you are shopping or surfing. Many wish list are specific to the site. For example I’ve had my kids create a wish list on Toys R Us before, however my boys are getting older and many of the things they want are found on many different sites. That is the nice thing about Pick UR Gift. You can create a wish list from any site.
Pick UR Gift Wish List
To get started you register at Pick UR Gift. Once registered you will get easy instructions on how to install a UR Button into your web browser.
Once registered you can make wish lists for anyone or store wish lists from others. Instead of creating an account for each of my children I created a contact for each one and a list. This is the great part you can create more than one list. So you can create a Christmas List, Birthday List, etc. With your lists created you can browse any store such as Amazon, Walmart, Toys R Us, etc and when you find something you want to add to your list you select the UR button.
For example here I wanted to select the Lego Friends product above and attach it to my daughter’s Christmas list. Once I hit the UR button a box comes up to the right of my screen and from there I can pick which list I want to add this product too. You can change the image, the title, and even put in a gift description if you wish.
What I love about how easy this is, is there is no reason to wait to the month before Christmas to begin your list. I’m sure throughout the year there are things you “wish” you had but just didn’t want to purchase it at the time. I can add it to a wishlist that will be ready for me once Christmas nears (or my birthday) and I can review the list and keep or delete anything I want. Once you have created your list you can send your list to those that need it. So once my children are done with their Christmas lists I can forward it to their grandparents and aunt so they will not only have their list but they can see what the item looks like. Many times they have not heard of the things my kids want since my kids are a little older.
This new tool can become very addicting, but the great thing is it is such a time saver without putting in any extra time. Once you get in and start using the tool it becomes second nature. However if you prefer to be instructed through each step Pick UR Gift gives you a brief tour of your dashboard and how to navigate it and us it to its potential.
I love how easy it is to use Pick UR Gift and am planning on using it throughout the next year to be prepared when I’m asked, “What do you want for Christmas?” They might be sorry they asked LOL!
