Don’t you hate it when you know exactly what you want for a gift. You drop not so subtle hints. You leave pages of magazines dog-eared down. You add pages to the Internet history on your hubby’s computer. And then the big day gets there. And you just know that all your tips will have paid off. Except when you open the present, there is a blender (sadly, true story). And as you paste that big fake smile on your face and utter the expected thank you’s, you wonder what went wrong! How could they not have picked up on what you really wanted? What could you have done differently?
Well, I’m here to give you the answer. You could have used Gift Caddie! This amazing online site allows you to create your personalized wish list from the internet and create a “caddie” of presents that will bring a smile to your face! Each caddie holds up to 10 items, which you can easily share with family and friends, ensuring that you get the perfect item that will truly make you smile!
So, let’s take a look at how Gift Caddie works. We’re going to look at two different examples. First, Mother’s Day is right around the corner (hint, hint honey – if you’re reading this check your email cause I already shared my caddie with you!). So this year I decided to make it easy on the guys in my life. Because I fully realize that having 3 guys in the house, if I leave it up to them I’m most likely going to be getting some type of power tool! So, to take care of that problem I’ve created my Mother’s Day wish list on Gift Caddie. It looks a little something like this:
Can we say fashion oh la la? Yea, I’m a clothes, shoe, jewelry and purse hound. And those are the things that would just make my little heart sing if they happened to be presented to me on Mother’s Day! So, I searched the Internet and found some of my favorite things. Then I simply dragged the pictures into my Gift Caddie (see below) – how simple is that?
Now it’s a easy as sharing my Gift Caddie on Facebook or emailing it to my friends and family. They can open it, take a look at what I want and even click on the link to be taken directly to where they can purchase it online! Are you seeing how amazing this is yet? I’m guessing that I’m gonna be one happy mama on Mother’s day!
But, it true unselfish motherly fashion, I know that it’s not all about me (cough, cough). So, what is one of the hardest things to buy presents for? If you’re like me, it’s kid’s birthday parties! I know that for J-Man’s birthday last year, every parent called me to ask what to get him. And I got so tired of trying to remember what I had told people, what he wanted and where to get it. Sooooo, this year I will be creating a gift caddie! And I can email the link out with the eInvitation! Woo Hoo! All I’ll have to do is search for the items J-Man wants and add them to his Birthday Gift Caddie!
Now, I’m going to be the first to admit that I am still learning my way around gift caddie but so far, it’s totally awesome (in the words of J-Man). What do I as see as some of the biggest benefits? Well, I’m so glad you asked!

And you want to know something else great? You can choose to list that you prefer cash to a gift if you are saving up for somethign super special! Yes, yes, I know I’m going on and on but I’m just so excited about this!
