Shopping and Gift Giving Made Easy With WishBin (Giveaway)

Sponsored byWishbin

Who doesn’t love to shop, right? Don’t get me wrong, shopping can be fun, however, gift giving, on the other hand, can be stressful – especially for the person who has everything, or “extremely selective.” Sarahshopping

To combat the anxiety associated with gift giving, including crumpled gift receipts, crowded mall parking lots and long lines, what if I told you there was a much easier and faster way to compile that wish list? WishBin is the first fully interactive, Internet-wide gift registry and is completely free. You can easily build and distribute a wish list from an endless number of online stores. So, with both my daughters needing school clothes and our busy, hectic schedule, I decided to try WishBin. First, we registered at http://www.wishbin.com. You can register through Facebook, or use your e-mail address and set up your secure account with a password.

I then created a family WishBin page and added my children (along with their photos) so they could have their own separate pages. This will be great for grandparents, who are always asking what they want for their birthdays and holidays. You also have the option to make the list private or public. Since I have children, I opted for my page to be private (sharing with only family members). Next, I downloaded the WishBin plugin. Once successfully downloaded, the teal-colored WishBin logo will appear in the right-hand corner of your browser. The plugin works best when downloaded in Chrome, Safari or Firefox Web browsers. I was finally ready to shop with my girls online and build our WishBin lists. While remaining logged into our WishBin account, my daughter found her first online item. She simply dragged the address field or URL of that item towards the WishBin logo, and dropped it on her page. It was that simple!WishbinToolPicTrying out this online gift registry was a great pre-Christmas gift-giving test. And, as a devoted shopaholic, it’s never too early to start shopping.
