We’ve all been there. Your friend’s birthday is coming up and you don’t have a clue what to get him/her.
You think back to hints they might have dropped. You might even call other friends and their family members for ideas. Before you know it, the day is approaching and you’re STILL empty-handed.
What do you do?
Imagine if you could close your eyes, instantly determine the right gift for them and have it appear in front you.
Okay, that’s not *EXACTLY* what WishGenies does but it comes darn close. Users log onto Facebook, select the friend they’re shopping for and WishGenies gets to work by matching people with similar profiles to recommend ideas. In essence, we use crowdsourcing to allow gift givers to get over the obstacles of determining the right gift idea.
Furthermore, users can even purchase the gift right within the application, eliminating the hassle of then searching for the product online.
This helps users in a number of ways:
1. Less time-consuming to find gift ideas
2. It provides unbiased recommendations based on people that are similar to their friends
3. The suggestions are more relevant
4. Friends/family members will receive gifts they’re more likely to appreciate
WishGenies is great for people who don’t have time to find a gift or for people who do not share similar interests.
