If only there was a simple registry for your family’s Christmas (or birthday) wish list.
Christmas is hard work, yo.
The baking, the decorating, the shopping.
I needs a vacay just thinking about it.
What if your shopping could be made easier?
What if there was one place to find all the wishes and wants of your loved ones? (nope, not Amazon wish list)
You know, kinda like the pad you keep on your desk with the running Christmas gift list for your family.
What if I told you there’s a registry site for that? A gift registry, if you will.
Nope, Mrs. Tucker is not playin’ – she wouldn’t do that to you so close to Christmas.
What is this wondrous registry I’m talking about? CheckedTwice registry.
I first heard of the service through a friend of mine when she posted a link to the company on facebook (Oh hai, Jonna!). You can pop over there, HERE.
And why not?
Anything that makes life easier, especially around the holidays or birthdays, is cause for favor, a hat tip, a full-on standing ovation.
Here’s what Checked Twice sez:
Create a wish list containing items you love from around the web.
Share with your friends and family and see their wish lists too.
No more stress in finding the perfect gift so you can enjoy the occasions that matter most.
It’s great for Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, and all the moments in between.
One feature includes being able to check-off gifts that you have purchased.
The recipient can’t see what is checked, only those shopping can.
You know what this means, right? No more duplicate gifts.
I see your eyeballs growing wide with wonder! It’s like a Christmas gift for you that lasts all year long, through each and every giving season.
Using the service is pretty straight-forward:
1: Give them your name and email.
2: Wait for a verification email.
3: BAM! You’re in.
After that, you get your family (sure sure – friends too) to create an account and link everyone up and soon you’re ready to make Checked Twice part of your gift-giving tradition.
If you’re a GIMME YOUR LIST kinda shopper, then this may be what you’ve been waiting for.
Has anyone already signed up? If you have, pop in and let us know what you think.
If you haven’t, do you think you would? Let us know, too!
I will not use this registry.
Hang on, hear me out…I am one of those people that listens all year long, jotting down specific spoke-about needs and wants, squirreling away the list until I’m ready to go shopping.
I LOVE IT!
I know I’m in the minority.
I know most of y’all want a list from those you’re shopping for, dang it!
If I had to ask for a list, it would take all the fun out of giving for me, but I can see how this service could be a HUGE help to most.
If you’ve been searching for a place to organize your family’s Christmas gift list, or their birthday wish list, this may be the answer you’ve been looking for.
Go on. Take a look.
Sign up. Get your family to sign up.
Get to organizing those gift lists and never be caught short again.
No need to check it twice, no need to see who’s naughty or nice – Checked Twice handles all the heavy lifting.
Santa would be so proud.
Happy Shopping, y’all!
