Do you ever wonder how you are going to find the *Perfect* or at least, really great gift? The gift that isn’t going to end up at someone’s post-holiday yankee swap, or regifted, stuffed in the closet or returned? The folks who created
No Present No Problem
have come up with a way that, providing your recipient uses Facebook, can give you some really great gift ideas.
First, you head over to www.NoPresentNoProblem.com and sign up/log in with Facebook. Many of your friends’ faces will pop up on the screen. Pick a friend, and wait a few moments. Voila. Many gift ideas, based on the things your friend has liked or shown interest in on Facebook.
I decided that I’d pick a close friend to “shop” for since I know a lot of her likes and interests. Some of the suggestions were really spot on. Others were not. I’d say probably 80-85 ideas were a great match, 10% a good match, and just a few ideas that just really were not a good fit. With the amount of time we use Facebook, and with all of the contests and voting and supporting friends and family by liking pages, I can see how there will be some gift ideas that probably wouldn’t seem relevant to your recipient. In general, I think this can be a pretty helpful tool for many! I know I was shown some gift ideas for my friend that I’d probably never have even been aware of- and a few suggestions for decor items that I wouldn’t have seen had I not been using this site.
Once you have the gift idea, you can click on the item and for the most part, you are brought to Amazon.com to where that item is for sale. Easy, peasy. You will need to know your recipient’s shipping information, but if you are buying them a gift, chances are, you know them well enough to at least ask their address!
If you are stuck for gift ideas, I’d definitely suggest you check out No Present No Problem. You may be very pleasantly surprised at what they suggest! (I’m dying to know what they suggest for me so if we are friends and you do give it a go….will you check for me?)

This sounds so cool. There are a few people on my list that I struggle with each year. I hate just buying a gift card if there is something they really want. Thanks for the post. I will have to check the site ot.

That is so awesome! I have no idea what to get my mom for Christmas this year, so I am going to check that out right now! I need all the help I can get. Thanks!
Let me know if you find anything fun!
I’m going to see what it says for my daughter. Thank you!
