Everyone has a wish list, right? Many days I am wishing for more sleep, and a clean house for more than 4 minutes, but there are certainly some tangible things on my list as well. This week’s “Jem” allows you to do just that ~ WISH! And share it with everyone!
The Things I Want is the prefect website for creating a wish list of any kind, for any reason, or quite frankly, no reason at all. It works in a similar way that a baby or bridal registry would, but the difference is, you are not restricted to one store, and it’s all conducted online. All you need to do is go to the site, The Things I Want, and download the application. Then you can add any item to your list, from any website. If it has a website, you can wish for it, and share it with anyone you choose. You can make your list private, even password protect it, or you can make it public for everyone to see. Hey, you never know if there’s a secret admirer out there that wants to give you little something special. You can also create multiple lists for multiple events, and sort them by date of occurance ~ how convenient!
Personally, I use it most for Christmas and birthday lists for my kids. How many times have family members asked what to get the kids? Not to sound ungrateful, but wouldn’t you much rather have something that will get used and not stay in a box or collect dust? If they ask, chances are they don’t have a clue and are looking for guidance, so why not make gift giving easy? Take the guess work out of shopping for gift givers, where they can even “reserve” the item anonymously. It’s a great site for bridal and baby registries too, and perfect for gift givers who shop online.
