The winter holiday is swiftly approaching, and yet again it’s time to get into the spirit of giving. But how are we supposed to juggle our job and finding that perfect gift that represents our profound understanding of our loved ones? Thankfully we live in the epoch of E-commerce, where the Christmas spirit is only a click away. Here is a list of some of the best shopping tools to help with your holiday shopping list.
Amazon: Amazon not only has an incredibly wide range of products and services, but the company plans to eventually launch a drone device that can deliver packages 30 minutes after you buy them. Not even Santa is that punctual.
Etsy: While homemade gifts from your children test the theory that it’s the thought that counts, these homemade products are something you’d actually want. Appealing to a younger, hipper, do-it-yourself crowd, Etsy is the perfect place to buy your new Vegan girlfriend some faux taxidermy.
Target Awesome Shop: Ever wish you could buy things through Pinterest? Well now you can. Target has created a digital storefront powered by Pinterest suggestions, just in time for the holidays.
Zoomvy: There’s no reason buying Christmas presents should cost a small fortune. Zoomvy lets you compare prices for online shopping, and helps you keep track of the things you’re looking for.
ShuffleHub: Humans are fickle creatures, and rarely know what they really want. ShuffleHub uses the principle of the Ipod shuffle, showing you random pictures of clothes from various stores until something catches your eye. Find great clothes, attention span not needed.
Wisley: If you’re suspicious of user reviews, which you probably should be, then Wisley is for you. Using actual transaction data, it shows you where people are actually making their purchases. Numbers don’t lie, so take advantage of this cool free app.
Wanelo: An online shopping community that combines the personalized communication of social media with a wide range of products.
Stitchfix: Stitchfix, using human stylists, sends you clothes to try on, only charging you for what you keep. The longer you use it, the better it works.
Bond: This gift giving app not only lets you buy and send gifts through your mobile device, it also lets you send a handwritten note, using a robot that writes your digital message.
Gyft: This app lets you send mobile gift cards that work at a number of retailers, but the coolest thing is that it takes Bitcoin. Using this app, you can buy someone a gift using Bitcoin.
