Thank you to our sponsors at GiftSprite! They asked us to try out their new app and share our feedback with you.
The holidays are just around the corner and I don’t know about you, but I am already getting requests from the grandparents about what to get our little one for Christmas this year! Much of our family lives out of town and we don’t get see them as often as we would like, so they aren’t always sure what our daughter likes to play with or what the latest and greatest kid craze is.
Now try to picture yourself trying to describe a toddler toy to your 65 year old parent via text message, email or phone… are you feeling this pain with me right now?
Enter GiftSprite. They’ve got an app for that!
The app is FREE and available on a variety of mobile devices. They also have a web and mobile version if you prefer not to download an app.
So what is it?
GiftSprite is a great way to create gift lists to share with people. I simply downloaded the app, created a free account and then started creating my lists!
I started by creating a list for my daughter that I could share with her grandparents. You can search for the items that you are looking for and GiftSprite will bring back the results for you. When you see the item that you want, you just select Add To List. You can also make a note within your list if you need to share something specific.
Once you have your list created, you can share it with anyone you would like by entering an email address or through your phone’s contact list. I sent Grandpa an invitation to view my list and now he knows exactly what to shop for. The whole process took me less than ten minutes start to finish! The best part is I can keep adding to the list as needed and also check off when an item has been purchased or received to avoid duplicates.
I had so much fun, I decided to create my own little wish list to share with my husband. I know he is delighted! I used the in-app features for barcode scan, so he’ll know how to find exactly what I like. You can also use the camera function to take an actual live image of something you see out and about.
I definitely recommend giving the GiftSprite app a try this holiday season. Take your list with you or create it at your desk. It is easy and FREE!
