Looking for the Perfect Gift for That Hard to Shop for Person, Including Dad? Let Do the Shopping for You! (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent a sample from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.

A couple of weeks ago I introduced you all to, and mentioned how this monthly gifting site, which sends gifts based solely on your gift recipient's interests, would be perfect for finding the best gift for Dad for Father's Day or other hard-to-shop for people of your gift giving list.  I recently had the opportunity to review this service firsthand and have to say that I was impressed.

The initial steps of setting up a profile and choosing three things that interest my gift my case, my husband...was a piece of cake.  In under a few minutes I had a profile on set up, and my order for a one month subscription (which costs only $31, including shipping) was placed.  Now, all I had to do was wait for the box to arrive, to surprise my husband with it.

Shortly after placing my order, my order arrived, and was all ready to give to my husband.  I liked how my husband tried asking me for hints, or coming right out and asking me what was inside the box.  All I could tell him was that he would LOVE it...and, he did!  

What's inside?

Whatever it is, just know that Dad will LOVE it!

Based on my husbands interests/likes, the personal shoppers at picked out the SNAP Remote for him.  

They were right when they say that they "spend countless hours scouring the Internet for up and coming artists, designers and brands that are creating products that most retail stores have yet to discover."  And, through all their research, they are able to provide these unique and not thought about gifts at a reasonable price.  My husband had never heard about the SNAP remote, nor would have thought to ask for something like this.  But, when he started to read what this product was, he wondered how he ever lived without it.  

Fans of photo taking, especially group shots, will love the SNAP remote, as it will let you get in the photo.  And, taking selfies is a breeze.  No more getting the bathroom mirror reflection in the shot, as the SNAP remote will remotely activate your phone's camera and can switch it from front or rear camera.  Even though this post is not to review the SNAP remote per se, I have to say that after playing around with it with my husband this past weekend, I LOVE it, too!  This is one gift I would never have thought about searching for and buying, but one I will definitely be picking up to surprise family and friends for their birthdays and upcoming holidays, thanks to the folks at

In addition to the cool SNAP Remote my husband was sent based upon the profile I set up for him, here are some other fun and unexpected gifts the gift shoppers over at have stumbled up, and that would make for the perfect last minute gift idea for Dad...

Still need a gift for Dad this Father's Day?  Or, stumped on what to get that recent grad in your life?  Stop stressing and head on over to  In a few easy steps, you will set up a profile for your gift recipient and and order for 1, 3 or 6-months of gifts can be ordered.  Then, wait for your box to be delivered to you, so that you can get the joy out of surprising that special someone with a gift you don't even know what is inside. Surprise! :-)

Edited Gifts

Don't forget to keep this fun monthly personal shopper gift subscription service for birthdays and holidays, or just when you want to surprise someone with a gift.  Heck, why not order a box and be surprised yourself?! :-).  The cost of the monthly boxes is $31 for 1 month, $91 for 3 months, and $181 for 6 months.  You can't go wrong with these prices if you factor in the amount of time you put into thinking about what to get Dad, trying to find that special gift online or stores and wrapping it.  

So, let the folks at make shopping for gifts for loved ones and those hard to shop for people on your gift giving list a little easier on you.  That way, you can spend more quality time enjoying with them on their special day, and not worrying about whether or not they will like what you got them for a gift. :-)
