I am bad at receiving surprises – my other half doesn’t usually get the chance to go out and pick something on his own for me because I’ve usually got a list as long as my arm of lusted after items (who doesn’t) but I know that many men struggle with what to buy that special someone.
I was contacted by AskHerFriends.com about a great new site that they have and was really drawn in by it and the concept behind it. Basically it’s:
A brand new, online gift-giving experience that helps guys finally get it right with gifts for their special ladies, AskHerFriends uses social media to rally together those who know her best and turns them into his own personal team of advisers. It’s simple –he signs up, chooses from a wide variety of gifts and experiences on offer and puts them onto his Advice List, which is then sent via e-mail or Facebook to her friends. They can then rate and comment on his choices, thereby deciding which of them she will love the most. He has the confidence that she’ll love what he has chosen and she’s delighted with her new gift.
One of the things I really liked on the website was the Idea’s map and decided to test it out on my other half and see what came out and I was rather surprised, it was a pretty good representation of me and what I would love to receive!
The site caters for all budgets from anything below £10 up to over £250 which I think is great (no-one is left out) and has a great range of companies that they’ve included too!
I would definitely go and have a nosey and what’s on offer there, and with Christmas fast approaching, what better time than now to pop this under your other halves nose!
