$200 Visa Gift Card Giveaway from @pickURgift

A couple of weeks ago, I told you how to use pickURgift.com to become a master gift-buyer by using reverse wishlists. It is simple and free. You add the UR button to your browser, and start creating wishlists.

How pickURgift works

I'm going to create a reverse wishlist for my friend Tonya. I always have a hard time picking out the perfect gift for her.

This is my pickURgift dashboard. From here I can add contacts, create gift pages (reverse wishlists), and be reminded of any upcoming birthdays, anniversaries, or special occasions for my contacts. I will also be alerted when someone responds to a wishlist I have sent.

pickURgift Dashboard Explained

I add Tonya as a contact, and create a Gift Page for her birthday.

Now I am ready to window shop.

As I come across things I think Tonya would like, I click on the UR button. I choose Tonya's name from the drop down menu, and choose Tonya's Birthday under Add to Gift Page. I choose the appropriate picture, and can also add a note or description of the item.

UR Button bookmarklet

When I am ready to send the Reverse Wishlist to Tonya, I find it under My Gift Pages on my dashboard. You can see that I can easily edit or delete any items, and can also add a note or question to any of the items. I asked her if she has read any of the Outlander books, because I think she is somewhere in the middle of the series, but I'm not sure where.

Reverse Wishlist page

Once I am happy with my picks, I send it to her. She will receive an email with the link to her gift page where she will be able to leave comments telling me which items she loves and which ones are not her thing. I will buy her the perfect birthday gift, and everyone will be happy.

PickURgift is more personal than a gift card, because your friends and family will see that you spent time "shopping" for them. They get to choose which gifts they would love the most, so you know for sure which gift will be a hit. For more information about how pickURgift.com makes your gift buying easier, check out my post on becoming a gift-buying master. Now, it is time for the giveaway!

    1. I never got a Nintendo when I was a kid (my dad thought computers were much more important, and had gaming capabilities, rendering Nintendos useless). But I do remember being excited when my cousin got a Nintendo, because I got to spend a lot of time playing it with him.

  7. I am going to date myself here....but I remember playing with the Evel Knievel stunt guy in the rain for hours growing up in Seattle one Christmas morning.

    I also received a Chia Pet once in my 20's. That one made me scratch my balding head. Maybe that was the message?

    1. Evel Knievel stunt guy?! That is an awesome gift!

      I had to laugh at your Chia Pet story. Too funny. I remember when I saw my first Chia Pet commercial when I was a kid, and I was convinced they were the most awesome, magical things ever created.

  8. The best gift I've ever gotten was for my 30th birthday, my fiance bought the entire Outlander series for me and surprised me. This means he REMEMBERED they were my favorite books, he found ALL 7 of them online, ordered them, and had them delivered without my finding out. HUGE KUDOS!

  13. Recently received a stethoscope from a friend through pickURgift. She was very overwhelmed by all the choices so she did what she does best and sent me a gift page and I was able to choose which one I wanted. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect gift and it was something I actually needed. I have also gifted from this web page and had some very happy friends and family with their received gift...even my dad who is the hardest person EVER to shop for! LOL
