So recently I was told about this amazing website called Wishpot, it's an online website to help you shop for gifts. Anything from birthdays to holidays & special occasions... I think I spend 90% of my Sunday afternoon on it.
Launched in 2007 by co-founders Max Ciccotosto and Tom Lianza, Seattle-based Wishpot is a free social shopping service that makes it easy to save and share interesting things users find from anywhere on the web. Once collected, items are stored and organized using simple online lists, which can be kept private or shared with others. From wedding and baby to gadgets and indie, any kind of list can be created! Users can collect and discover products they like, recommend their favorite things, share and explore gift suggestions, receive price comparisons and sale alerts, and ask for opinions and advice.
How exactly does Wishpot work? It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.
1 – sign up. 2 – download the Wishpot button to your toolbar. 3 – go shopping!
The Wishpot button allows users to add items found from not just 1 site, but from anywhere on the net. As any smart shopper would agree, why limit yourself to one store when you can have them all? While browsing your favorite sites, simply drag and drop items you like into the Wishpot button on your toolbar. The items will be automatically added to your list, resulting in a centralized, one-stop-shop location for all of your favorite things. (It's an amazing little tool I tell you!)
Set any price comparisons or sale alerts, then send to your family and friends!
Start shopping, storing, sharing and saving with Wishpot!
