Getting Started

OK, so what is anyway?

It is several things.

  • It is a place where you can go to find gift ideas when you just can’t think of the right gift for someone.
  • It is a place where you can create your own gift registry in your profile, listing all of the things you would like to get from your friends and family, making their gifting jobs easier.
  • It is a place you can tell the world about a great gift you found.
  • If you are a small vendor, it is a place you can sell your own gifts, or  crafts, or clothes or old games, or whatever.
  • If you are a merchant, it is a place you can target market your goods.
  • If you are a writer it is a place you can blog about gifting.

Right now, GiftIdeas is just taking off after years of sitting around as a very limited web site.  We hope to be the Gift Idea portal of the internet one day.

If you are just arriving for the first time, look around and see if the sight is helpful as a Gift Idea catalyst.

Check out the gift posts, or read the forum.  If you want to get started, click Sign Up (in the upper left corner) and develop your profile.  Set up a wish list.  Every time you see something  you like on , click the “add to my wishlist” button and the item will be placed in your wishlist gift registry for all your friends and family to see.  No more getting stupid gifts now!

If  you have any questions about the site, or any ideas for improving the site, tell us at .  We will be posting more and more FAQs so be sure to check them out.

If you want to participate in as a moderator, or a writer, or a developer of some type, just let us know at
