'pick UR gift' Reinvents How to Give the Perfect Holiday Gift with the Reverse Wish List! #pickURgift

This post is part of a sponsored campaign with Those Media Girls and pick UR gift. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

For me, gift shopping for children is one of the most enjoyable things I get to do in life.  Shopping for adults, however, is not quite as fun for me.  The fact of the matter is that adults are not as easy to please as children and they usually have their own opinions and may have begun to be set in their ways (even if they refuse to admit it).  I would say shopping for gifts for adults is on the top of my list of stressful things about the Holidays.  Just coming out and asking the person what he or she needs takes all the fun out of Holiday shopping.  Well, pick UR gift has come up with a solution that makes everyone happy . . . the reverse wish list!

What's a reverse wish list?  Simply put, it's a list you create of things that you think would make awesome gifts.  Then your friends and family get to choose which gift they would like to receive from the reverse wish list.

Creating a reverse wish list could not be any easier.  All you need to do is take two seconds to register on the free website, Then just drag the blue 'UR Button' to your browser's toolbar.  This button works similarly to the Amazon Universal Wish List button.

While shopping online, when you see an item that you think would make the perfect gift for someone, just click the button and a little box will open on the right side of the window.  Within this box, you can specify if this item is for a particular person, choose on which Gift Page you would like this item to appear, select the best image to represent your gift, and enter a description of the item.  In my case, I made a list of items that I already own, whole-heartedly love, and can afford to purchase as a gift.  In the gift descriptions, I made sure I included why I love each item.

After you have created your Gift Page, you can choose to make it public or keep it private.  You can also share the page with your friends and family by entering their emails in the available fields or by simply sharing the link to your Gift Page with them directly.  If you would like to maintain the element of surprise somewhat, you can ask each person to choose 2 or 3 of their favorite items and then you can choose which one they will receive.

With pick UR gift everyone wins.  You get the enjoyment of picking out gifts.  The gift recipient will never be disappointed with their present.  You will not need to deal with gift receipts or returning unwanted items.

You may also want to know that you can create a wish list for yourself and add to that list while you are shopping online for other people.  To learn more about pick UR gift, visit Eight MPH Mom (and enter to win a $200 Visa gift card while you're there), plus follow pick UR gift on Facebook, Twitter, and the #pickURgift hashtag.
