Long gone are the days of dog-eared catalog pages marked with toys for good little girls and boys. For those of you who celebrate the Christmas holiday, exchange gifts with your family, and use Pinterest, here’s a fun and organized way to share your family’s Christmas lists.
Create a new Pinterest board titled Christmas List, pin items that you would like to receive as gifts, and send the link to your mom.
I say mom because in my family, our mother is the first to request Christmas lists. And I know for myself, when I’m asked on the spot what I want for Christmas, the only thing I can think of is, “well, we’re out of dishwasher soap and our towels are looking shabby but not chic.”
You can pin gift ideas for family members too, just be sure to include who it’s for. You can see my list at http://pinterest.com/staciperry/christmas-list/. (You have to scroll down a bit to see my fun kitchen/baker/foodie stuff.) I’ve included ideas for my two kids, and also shared it with my sisters. I’m hoping they will do the same for themselves and their families. *Hint. Hint.*
Even if a family member isn’t on Pinterest, they can see your board because it is public.
My mom loves the spirited quest for gifts but as the kids get older, they tend to take the easy road and ask for gift cards to their favorite stores. I guess that’s what happens when we don’t have bulging paper catalogs from Sears and JCPenney to help us craft our dream list to Santa. I hope this brings back a little Ho Ho Ho to gift giving.
What fun ways are you using Pinterest?
