Don’t know about you guys, but I have to admit I’m not the best at buying the aul Christmas presents. And when I do, it’s always a mad dash to get them altogether and I’ll more than likely do it on one of the busiest days of Christmas – genius! It drives The Missus mad as she is so organised. Maybe it’s a man thing or maybe it’s just a me thing??!
In particular I struggle with buying baby products. And if you’re like me, not only am I looking for my own nippers presents but a lot of our friends have new babies / young toddlers as well (in fact, one was born earlier today).
The stupidest thing is I’m an internet person. 5 years working in a Tech Start-Up. Blogging for 8 months & counting – ya think the penny might drop at some stage to do my searching & shopping online right?
So this year I’ve done exactly that and about time too. And it’s been class if I’m honest. My ‘present’ self – if you’ll forgive the crappy pun – really wants to tweet my ‘past’ self and tell him ‘You’re a twat!‘.
All that getting from A to B / being stuck in heavy traffic / parking in ridiculous tight spaces / banging into everyone / saying ‘sorry‘ every ten seconds / finding what you want only to be told ‘yeah, we’re sold out‘ etc etc etc.
So this year Mamas & Papas came to my rescue. I’ve managed to get a few bits & bobs knocked off my list sitting on my ass drinking a cuppa. Sweet.
Well with the help of their new ‘Gift Finder‘ that’s how!
This is a search tool which based on certain criteria, will return 3 gift options for you based on your input of the babies DOB, sex, occasion & the cash you’re willing to part with.
In terms of searching &/or buying presents, it’s extremely handy for both men & women. But in particular this has to be a man’s dream way of buying gifts right?!
‘Hang on now, so I punch in a few keys and the gift finder gives me ideas that I didn’t have before? And I’m able to buy it and have it delivered to me without leaving the house?!’
Jackpot baby, jackpot!
If I’m brutally honest I would like to see more than 3 products being returned. However, I’ve been assured this will increase when version 2 is released and that is great to know.
Having said that, the gift finder showed me products I simply wouldn’t have found otherwise. So I’ve ordered a few gifts and you know what?, it saved me a hell of a lot of hassle verses heading into the madness of town. And that appeals to me big style.
So if you’re a bit stuck for what gifts to buy for a baby or toddler or you’re not exactly sure what would be appropriate for a particular age, the Mamas & Papas gift finder is a great find. Use it to find your inspiration and buy your presents from the comfort of your own home. Job done!
