Frequently Asked Questions

How do you create an account?

To create an account, you must have a valid email address. When you create an account you will be required to enter your first and last name, email address, mobile phone number and a password. Upon creating an account, you will receive an email requiring you to verify your email address. Until you verify your email address, your account will not be live.

Regarding your password, pick a unique password that preferably has characters, numbers and special characters as your privacy and security are important to us. Please make your password unique and keep it private.

Alternatively, you may use Facebook to create an account. For some users, this is easier and faster.

Lastly, please note that we will never sell, rent or share your contact information, including your email address.

Do I have to sign up for an account to use the site?

You don’t need to create an account if you just want to cruise our website to look for cool gift ideas. You can still access all the great information, inspiration and gift ideas.

However, if you do want to receive reminders about occasions and customized gift suggestions for your gift recipients then you need to sign up for an account.

How does the Birthday Requestor works?

If you don’t know your giftee’s birthday, no problem! Fill in the information you do know - age range, sex, relationship and personality - and also hit the birthday requestor button. A window will automatically pop up allowing you to send an email to a recipient asking for that giftee’s birthday. Feel free to customize the email if you want.

The recipient you send the birthday request to can be anyone - the giftee, the mom of giftee, you name it. Once the birthday requestor recipient responds with the giftee’s birthday, it automatically uploads to that giftee’s profile. Viola, your job is done. You will even receive a confirmation email once the date has been added!

In the event the recipient does not respond to your birthday request, the birthday request button will remain up in your giftee’s profile under "my giftees" and it will only come down once the recipient has answered your birthday request or you have filled it in. If you want to nudge the recipient again to respond, no problem, hit the birthday requestor button again and nudge away.

What are reminders and giftee list?

You create reminders by providing the who and the what. You may review your gift reminders by clicking on my giftees at the top of the page. On your personalized my giftee page, you can add and edit your reminders and giftees list. You can even visit your giftee's customized gift page to get a sneak peak of the curated gift list that we’ve crafted for your giftee.
