This season, along with offering its usual awesome deals, eBay would like to help you keep track of your holiday shopping gift lists! They’ve created a neat Facebook gifting app — the Holiday Gift Shop — that not only allows you to create gift lists for people you are shopping for, but allows kids to get in on the fun too with an interactive Kids Toy List section!
Here are a few facts about the app:
1) These are lists you are making for yourself. So, no one you create gift lists for can see what you’ve created.
2) You can create toy lists for your kids! (And be entered into the sweepstakes! Every day an item from someone’s gift list will be given to them! How sweet is that?! )
3) You get great recommendations from eBay experts.
4) It’s super convenient — It ties right into the eBay site and the eBay mobile app so you can shop anywhere, any time!
I decided to try the app out to start making some gift lists for the kids! It was super easy to do. Once connecting to the app via facebook, you decide what person(s) you’d like to start lists for. I started with Big Brother. For the kids, you can start a child’s toy list. This has an interactive section so that kids could make there own list in which you can scroll through pages of toy images and add them to them to the wish list! Here’s a glimpse at some of the fun finds that I added to Big Brother’s list! They’re all things I know that he would love!
A fun added featured of the toy list was the option to send to the North Pole! After clicking that button, here’s what you’ll see: An easy way to keep track of gift ideas for sure! And, there’s the added sweepstakes bonus! Anyone who creates a gift list, for themselves or for a child, will be entered for a chance to win. Each day, eBay will award an item from a lucky person’s list. Entrants can also win eBay gift cards! Fun stuff!
So, head on over to check out the eBay Holiday Gifting App on Facebook today!
