Up Your Gifting Game

My own experiences in getting a gift has resulted in my gift shopping being reduced to a pile of plastic.  I often wonder what people use to do before gift cards.  Beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder.  For instance, I bought a shirt for Matt last Christmas that I have never seen again.  It was relegated to the bottom drawer is my guess.  That’s better than the flip flops I got for his birthday.  I have seen them tons of times.  The only problem is I’ve seen them on Tom’s feet, his next door neighbor.  That was the straw that broke the camel’s back.  This was all until I tried the Penless app.  It is not only easy; it is a lot of fun too.  When you come across a gift you want for yourself or think someone else would like it, you just take a picture in the store or screen shot from the web.  The phone remembers where you saw it on the web.  You have a place to put in a description.  You do not even have to wait for your birthday, or Christmas.  You can take pictures on the fly and the phone stores the information in the cloud.  Images don’t take up memory on your phone.  I even take images of things that are not really a gift idea, but rather something I want to remember and I store that in My Stuff on my idea board. So, it helps me with gift planning and also event planning, and I get lots of ideas for decorations.  I told Matt about this totally unique gifting app and he downloaded it too, and now we can share items we want with each other.  And if I want to share a gift with my girlfriend and not with Matt, I can do that too through a really fun wish list feature.

But that’s not all, yesterday I saw where Matt listed his sizes on his phone and shared them with me.  That was a surprise.  Now if I see something I know he wants, I will be able to see what size he wears without looking at a wish list.  And check this out, his suit size is 40 regular.  It is not that I am going to get him a suit anytime soon, but I couldn’t tell you what that means.  Matt told me there are suit sizes like 38 short and stuff like that.  Who would have guessed?  When I mentioned it to him he said, well that is the equivalent of dress sized from 1 to 20.  He said he never knows what that means either.

Just yesterday when I was walking outside a department store window shopping, I saw a pair of sandals that would be perfect for my Mom for her birthday.  I was too busy to pick them up and her birthday isn’t for a while anyway, but I used my app and took a quick picture to store on the Penless cloud.  Now when her birthday does roll around, I will just swing by the store and pick them up.  And between now and then I am going to get her to download the Penless app. so she can share her sizes with me.  Oh what fun.  I am even going to put those very same sandals on my wish list.  It doesn’t get much easier than that. #NoMoreReturns.
