Picky Presents: Great Gifts Real People Love {Dedicated Post}

PickyPresents

The Gift Insider is always looking for new ways to help you find the perfect gift, especially gifts that people will be happy to receive! Recently we’ve fallen in love with Picky Presents – a website that makes gift searching easier by showing you the latest and greatest gifts people are getting each day, in near-real time! Picky Presents scours the web, monitoring various sites to discovering which gifts people have recently received. The unique part about Picky Presents is that they only feature gifts that people have actually received, and of these, Picky Presents picks out only the gifts people genuinely appreciate. Picky Presents lessens the stress with gift-giving by allowing you to see how people have responded to receiving various gifts.

Picky Presents Andrew Cuga says,  “this unique method of finding gifts enables them to pick out items that didn’t even know existed such as an Aebleskiver pan!” In addition to this, Picky Presents has the ability to correlate gifts, such as seeing which gifts are commonly given together. Similar to The Gift Insider, Picky Presents has a filtering feature which allows you to match a gift to the exact person you have in mind, like geeky guys and fashionable ladies.

As the holiday season approaches, Picky Presents is the go-to spot to see real reviews on presents that have been given. Visit Picky Presents at: http://www.pickypresents.com

TGI TIPS: How to Handle Holiday In-Store Shopping

· Do it Solo Research shows that when shopping with a spouse or children, you are more likely to spend more time and money.  Focus on the task at hand and head to shops at off-hours or on weekdays.

· Support Local Businesses- Support your neighborhood brick-and-mortars this season by doing your in-store shopping on Small Business Saturday, November 24th.

· Browse Before You Go Use the Catalogue App to check out all the latest catalogues from 100’s of national chains. Take note of what you need from each retailer so you can stay focused and save time.

· Black Friday- Caution, this is a very stressful day to shop, if you can handle it, go for it. If not, spend the day organizing your online plan of attack for Cyber Monday.

Wicker Park Gift Shop – Elevenzees

I took my first browse through a gift boutique I’ve been meaning to check out in Wicker Park – Elevenzees.  Such a fun mix of gifts, organized perfectly into categories around the store so you can find something for everyone you are looking for.

I immediately fell in love with the line they carry, Chalkboard China.  If you read my blog a lot you know I’m obsessed with anything that you can write on or personalize….especially chalk.

The wine glasses are an especially brilliant idea…put your name on the bottom and you are able to keep track of which one is yours the entire night.

Chicago Pillow from a Chicago Shop

This Chicago themed pillow will definitely liven up anyone’s average old couch.

You can find this hand embroidered gift at a shop in Northbrook Court Mall called Royal Appointments.

They are pretty much a one stop shop for gifts of all sorts – great place to head if you’re stuck last minute without a gift.  If you have a little more time, they have lots of great items you can personalize as well.
