What kind of gifter are you? I generally try to find a gift that the recipient will truly enjoy. While I may or may not be shopping on a budget, price is rarely the factor I use when determining what to buy. I know one or two that only buy things because they are on sale, giving no regard to if the item will be wanted, appreciated or used. Those people are cheap, and I do not mean that in a flattering way. There’s a difference between thrifty or frugal and cheap. I personally would rather have no gift at all then one that had no real thought put into it.
And then there’s the other question. What do you do with gifts you receive that you don’t want? I used to know someone that had a closet where she kept them all. She’d put all of the gifts she didn’t like in there and then regift them. I am not one for regifting, it just doesn’t seem right to me. I’d sooner give something away.
In an ideal world we’d all give, and receive, gifts that we actually wanted or could truly use. Which is the purpose of the app Well Gifted. Well Gifted is a reverse gift registry app. The app was designed by two brothers. One brother got Jamba Juice gift cards but didn’t like Jamba Juice. The two brothers realized how often this sort of thing happened and worked together to create an app to help solve the problem. Here’s how it works.
Let’s say that I’m shopping for the hubby. I am fairly sure that he wants a new digital camera but I am not sure which one he’d like the most. I browse Amazon and select up to three cameras. I go into the Well Gifted app and put the links to the cameras into the app, along with hubby’s email, and send the email.
The next thing that happens is hubby receives the email that I sent. The email contains images of the gifts I had selected, and links to see them or get more information on Amazon.
Once hubby has decided which camera he’d most like he clicks the button to select it.
Then, I receive an email letting me know that hubby has chosen the camera that he’d like the most.
Here’s a brief video that shows the whole process.
How do you decide what gift to get for someone?
