It’s the age old issue, for him. What on earth does he buy you for Christmas. Or your Birthday. Or your Anniversary. Well never fear, help is now on hand in the shape of new website called Ask Her Friends. It’s the ideal way for him to find the perfect gift for you, at last!
I’m really loving it. The image above is a small sample of the suggestions it made for me after I’d answered a few questions about the things I like to do or have done recently. Easy questions, factual questions that require little or no opinion on style, ideal for that man in your life to answer. I have to say I’d be pretty happy with any of the suggestions the idea map made for me. It knew me pretty well.
There are two ways to use the site. Either you can create a wishlist for him to choose from or he can ask your friends what you would prefer. After creating a gift list that he thinks would be ideal for you, he can send this to your friends and ask for their advice. I’m liking this idea. I don’t think it’s for everyone but there are many guys out there that would love the reassurance that a girlfriend can give.
Browsing the Ask Her Friends store I’m impressed by the extent of and the range of partners; different stores, big and small that they’ve joined forces with. It’s a diverse range so I’m sure you’d be able to create a fabulous wish list; absolutely ideal for the upcoming Christmas season.
So let’s hope the man in my life is reading this today. You never know… but maybe he’ll need a gently nudge.
Girlfriends, it’s more likely you’re reading this so please do introduce him to Ask Her Friends, and I promise to do the same. Love Jen xx
