A couple weeks ago I read about Amazon's Universal Wish List. Have you heard about this? It's so cool!! If you have an Amazon account, go to the website and click on "Wish List" (it's up at the top right, next to the button for 'cart'). This feature isn't new - you've been able to browse and tag items on Amazon for a long time.
By searching public wish lists, I found one my brother started and one my dad started - it helped me buy their Christmas gifts for this year. Yup, it's that easy. Everyone should have one of these - no one will worry about what gift to give ever again.
(Nope, not getting paid to hawk this product - just really love it!)
