New Website To Help You Come Up With Great Gift Ideas

For most people, or at least for me, it’s hard to come up with good gift ideas, so I’m always on the look out for good resources for finding gifts for friends and loved ones. I actually wrote a post right before Christmas called Awesome and Different Christmas Gift Ideas that you might also find helpful.

Over the weekend, I came across No Sweaters, which is gift idea search engine.

On the home page, you type in the person you’re getting a gift for, such as your mom, husband, girlfriend, fiance, girlfriends parents, boss, barista, roommate, or anyone else you can think of, and the website offers some suggestions on the following page. If you don’t like what’s offered, you can drill a little deeper by entering an occasion, such as a birthday, and then selecting a few interests.

I gave it test run for my fiance (I had to enter “wife” since fiance is gender neutral) and after selecting a few of her interests, it actually came back with some very relevant results. I was surprised.

And if you still can’t find a good gift, you have the option of asking the No Sweater community, who can help you come up with even more ideas. This is such a cool idea.

Remember this site come Christmas!

Get Your Twitter Feed Printed on Toilet Paper

When you’re sitting on the toilet, you’re most likely reading something, such as a magazine or you’re messing around on your phone or tablet. If you don’t have a smarthphone with Twitter capabilities, but you want to do some catching up on your feed, check out “Shitter“.

Shitter will print Tweets from your feed onto rolls of toilet paper so that you or your guests can always stay in the loop. Of course by Twitter standards, those tweets will be terribly out of date, but I think it’s still a fun idea.

You can order four rolls for $35 plus the costs of shipping and taxes and you have four choices of what you can pull from your account to be printed; your own tweets, the latest tweets the people you follow have posted, tweets you have favorited, and tweets from a Twitter list you’ve created.

I think it would be fun to buy some rolls to put out when I have guests over, but when it’s just me, I’ll read my tweets on my iPhone 😀
