Just in time for the holidays to help answer the endless questions about what items are on your child’s wish list, eBay created an easy to use Facebook gifting app called the Holiday Gift Shop. Tied to your Facebook account, the Holiday Gift Shop makes it easy and fast to create wish lists for every member of your family by dragging in items that you think they would love.
I started by creating a gift list for Captain Computer by entering in his name, gender, and age. Based on those three factors alone, eBay pulled together some age appropriate gift suggestions for our Lego loving Star Wars obsessed child.
All I had to do to create a gift list was drag and drop items from the All Toys section into My Toy List. It’s so easy to use that you could turn your child loose in dragging and dropping to select their own gifts. Just be sure that you show younger ages what to do and stay nearby to keep an eye on them or in case they run into trouble. Tweens and up can complete this independently based on your comfort level on them using this Facebook connected app.
After the lists are created, they can be shared with friends and family by clicking on the Send to North Pole button at the bottom of the My Toy List box. The wish list is then emailed to designated individuals who can purchase the items off of eBay through the Facebook app.
It took me minutes to create and share wish lists through the Holiday Gift Shop that I think it’s something everyone should try. eBay experts provide you with helpful gift recommendations for even the most difficult to shop for and the fact that it’s tied into the eBay site and eBay mobile app means you can shop anywhere, anytime!
If you need another incentive to create a gift list for yourself or a loved one, anyone who creates a gift list will be entered to win something off your wish list. eBay is awarding an item from a lucky person’s list daily! You can also win eBay gift cards!
