As the mother of two children, every year I encounter the same question from family and friends: “what do the kids want this year?” Of course my kids make lists. Professionally, in a former life, I even worked on a holiday gift list solution for moms because from the moment I gave birth, this has always been a conundrum–what is the right answer and how do you coordinate who is getting and giving what? Unfortunately the service I mentioned is no longer available, but these are some websites and apps you should check out if you’re looking to make list sharing with family and friends painless and simple this season…and beyond.
Amazon Wish List
Amazon Wish Lists let you create your own lists, install a little bookmark to “wish” for an item anywhere / anytime as well as track friends and family’s Wish Lists, important dates and more.
Giftster let’s you shop for yourself, others or join / request membership into existing Giftster groups. You can also set up your own groups–The Smith family Holiday 2013–to create lists for occasions or events.
