  1. I just had my birthday , and received a gift list from PickUrGift. I am so glad I did. My awesome wife was trying to get me a drill. She had heard me say on many occasions that I needed an impact drill. However when I got the page it was full of normal drills which I have plenty of. I am so glad she didn’t spend $150.00 on something I already have. I sent her a comment back with a link to my wishlist which had the right kind of drill on it. I really appreciated her effort and was glad that we didn’t purchase the wrong thing.

  2. Funny that you showed purses since I’m looking for a new bag for my sister. She is going to a bunch of concerts this summer and I’m on a mission to find a perfect bag to send her!

  3. A Coach purse would be a lot of fun for me to get! I am loving these ideas! Sometimes I just get a gift card if I have trouble.

  4. Some people can be hard to buy for. They already have all that they want or the things they want are not affordable to most. Or, they are like my mom and are very minimal and want nothing. So, they get gift cards.

  5. Clothes is the hardest I find to buy for anyone. Tastes vary, sizes sometimes aren’t true and who know if something I like someone else will! It’s super hard!

  6. You curated some staple gifts that are really fun and wonderful to give! Thanks for the tips and sharing your ideas :)

  7. My other half is the hardest person in the world to buy for. He literally is the man who has everything! Everyone else is so easy :)

  8. My mother in law is hard to buy for… she doesn’t really like anything (she takes it back) and she wants you to spend a lot (because she spends a lot).

  9. I have never heard of this but it sounds like a great service to use just about any occasion., Sometimes it is hard to pick gits for different people.

  10. I am usually pretty good at picking out gifts for family & friends but for those stressed out days this seems great! Thanks for the share!

  11. This is an interesting concept! It might help me be better prepared for gift giving! I always end up waiting til almost the last minute and then I’m stuck for ideas. Having a running list of goodies to choose from would be smart!

  12. I usually don’t have a problem buying gifts. Usually it’s for my family and I already know what they like or what.

  13. Omg what a great idea!!!! I love buying clothing for kids. I’m probably the person every kid hates because they know they aren’t getting a toy lol…

  14. What a unique idea! There have been several occasions when I could have used this.

  15. HI Yona – Sounds like PickUrGift would be great for a lot of reasons – I’ve taken a look at the site and will wonder around it a bit more – thank you :)

  16. The hardest gift I buy every year is something for my very good friend who is also VERY nerdy. I think something like that Star Trek hoodie would go over really well.

  17. I never buy clothing as a gift unless the person is with me to try it on. PickUrGift could change all that.

  18. I honestly don’t think anyone is hard to buy for – I get pretty much everyone gift cards LOL. It works for lazy people like me….
