Gifting sites are aplenty and it's only to be expected when we rely so much on technology.
Personally, I'm a huge fan of putting some effort into a birthday gift, so buying vouchers is not my deal (receiving them, however...!) Having said that, it's sometimes pretty difficult to find the perfect gift for a loved one and I think it's great that the internet has broadened our spectrum of the 'personalised present'.
I was contacted by Wishwant.co.uk to review their website by ordering a present for somebody and it definitely puts the effort back into online gifting.
- Select your budget- Pick between 4-12 gifts the recipient may like from those featured on WishWant
- Fill in the lovely card with personalised deets
whoosh, the options are on their way to the lucky soul for them to pick their own present from your thoughtful selection - and you've not had any sort of headache!
As a small 'welcome to our new home' present, I decided to send a gift to David. I selected a few things he might like (and a few that I could also appreciate, ahem) and he could take his pick from the list. Including shaving kits, shot glass sets, notebooks and vintage pencils, it allowed me to create a list that was perfectly suited to him and I think he would have been happy with any of them!
NOTE: Gifts may be subject to change, these were all available at my time of visit to WishWant. I have noticed too however, lots of new items have also been added since this was written!
With a small nudge from me (and a cheeky smile) he opted for the His & Hers beauty box and we unveiled our items together excitedly, like a very early Christmas present had arrived.
I'll may write a little more about the box itself in another post but I will just mention that this is typically girl orientated. To say it was suggested as a gift for a male, it was a little disappointing on his side. The bits I received in the box were amazing on the other hand, so if you're looking for something for a girlfriend and boyfriend (but you like her much more) then you're onto a winner.
Overall, I enjoyed my experience with the website itself and think WishWant is a great idea for buying gifts for loved ones. Although the beauty box was a little disappointing for a male gift, the other gifts I selected on his list looked fantastic. My advice? Spend some time finding that perfect list of presents and read the descriptions more fully than I did.
Let's be honest, all the choice lies with them in the end anyway!
