I know…another post that’s not really related to photography, but we just got this new website (and an Android App) launched, and I really think it’s awesome for everyone that has ever given or received a gift, and it’s FREE!
The site is called My Gift IQ and it solves a problem that comes around a number of times each year…”What should I get (insert friend or family members name here) for their birthday, Christmas, anniversary, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Valentines Day?” We make the phone calls to ask, they give us vague answers that are rarely helpful. We wonder what size they are, can’t remember if it’s dark or milk chocolate that they love, is their favorite wine from France or California, does little Johnny like Star Trek or Star Wars, and on, and on, and on. My Gift IQ is an app that allows a user to create a personal profile (as well as profiles for their children) listing all the things that they love. It’s broken down into categories that cover almost any type of gift imaginable. In it, you store all the things you’d like to receive.
But it’s not just about what you want, or what your children want. You can search for your friends and family’s Gift IQ profile the next time their special day approaches and feel great about giving them the perfect gift. For many of us, giving a wonderful gift is even better than receiving one.
My Gift IQ is about smarter gifting, but that doesn’t mean it’s just for women. How many men out there are caught driving home from work and realize that their wife or girlfriend’s anniversary/birthday is just around the corner (like tomorrow)? Now you can pull out your phone, launch My Gift IQ, look up her Gift IQ profile and find something she really wants in seconds. If she’s posted links in her profile, you can even order the item right there on the spot.
From now on, when your Mom calls asking what she should get you (or your spouse or children) for Christmas or for a birthday, tell her to check out your Gift IQ. You’ll never again be put on the spot having to come up with some lame gift idea that you hope you can figure out a way to return.
Join others in sharing your favorite things for perfect gift giving and receiving. This is where you list your favorites of everything…a great new perfume you just found, your favorite flower, that perfect pair of shoes you saw online, a watch you love, your favorite bourbon, the best raincoat ever, running shoes, chocolate, cigars, authors, tools, cookware, the cutest umbrella you’ve ever seen…you love it, you list it. If you want to get real specific, copy and paste a web link to exactly what you want. If you choose to use it, there are even places to put your size so your friends and loved ones don’t have to guess. This makes everyone happy. Not only do you receive gifts that you truly want, but the giver has that wonderful feeling of having given you the perfect gift. No more guessing! Be sure to encourage your friends and family to sign up as well so you can use My Gift IQ to search for their Gift IQ Profile. Then you can be as great a gifter to them as they’ll be to you!
Smarter gifting with My Gift IQ.
