Pinterest can give you gift ideas and help you organize your gift list. Make use of secret boards on Pinterest to gather gift ideas as you surf the web. Pinterest now lets you create up to six secret boards so you can gather your gift ideas away from the prying eyes of others.
As you surf the web, pin gift ideas you find at different websites. Instead of adding items to a cart and forgetting where you left them, add items to a pin board so you can see them all in one place.
Get gift ideas on Pinterest too. Check out 2013 Pinterest Holiday Giving Guide to get “pinspired” ideas for others. Find boards with gift ideas for the special people in your life, such as:
