Need a Gift Idea? Try GiftGen

Posted on 6.01.2008
This is one of those websites that turns the Internet into a true utility and time-saver. GiftGen lets you enter parameters of how much you want to spend, the age of the person you are buying for, up to three of their interests and male, female, either or couple. The system then makes a list of gift recommendations, complete with websites that sell the item, comparison shopping sites and a list of brick-and-mortar stores. This is going to be great for the holiday season.

The site is UK-based, so there are a couple of hitches for the U.S. shopper. First, the "select spend" category is in British Pounds - about two Dollars for every Pound. Second, the brick-and-mortar stores will not be very useful for U.S. residents. However, I road tested the service and I have to say, I came up with some pretty good stuff and my holiday shopping just got a head start.
