This great website crowd-sources ideas by asking normal women to tell them exactly what they want, and works on a focused quality selection of suppliers.
Have you ever had to buy your own Christmas, anniversary or birthday present ladies? Or have you ever dropped hints so big you think your partner would never get it wrong - only to find yourself with Matchmakers on Christmas day instead of a Chocolate Orange - yes there is a story there! Well, the fabulous people at Ask Her Friends have come up with a great idea. A website that acts as a ladies best friend - literally.
So how does it work? You can browse the fabulous catalogue online which is set out in clear sections or you can use the very clever Idea Map.
The premise of the Idea Map is to select the person, then select the budget, then select their interests. The software on the site will then give you gift ideas which you can act upon if you so wish. Another great idea is an Advice List which can act as an online Christmas list. It's easy to register with the site too, I did it through Facebook!
With a range of partners including big names such as M & S, Debenhams and John Lewis and smaller boutique stores like Rhea Clements you know there will be lots of lovely gifts that you will like.
So I know what I will be doing this Christmas - suggesting to my husband that he uses this site so I know I will get a gift I love and it will still be a surprise!
