The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide…on your iPhone?

November 16, 2009

Whilst we can hardly believe it, the holidays are upon us and suddenly we’re wondering what should be on our lists…both for ourselves, but more importantly others. Tis the season of giving, is it not?!

To make our lives easier, NearbyNow has launched the ultimate Holiday Gift Guide that compiles the holiday gift selections from our favorite magazines and select retailers, like Nordstrom & Macy’s, all into one application available at your fingertips. Gift Guides from Cosmo, Marie Claire, Seventeen All You, Real Simple, Sunset, Details, Southern Living and Cooking Light magazines are all included.
Once you’ve downloaded the app (if you have iTunes on your computer, you can download it by clicking here), users search and find products they wish to investigate further or purchase, then simply tap the “Find Nearby” button and let the app’s concierge service go to work, ensuring the item you want is in stock at your nearest store.

Finally, you are greeted by an email verification that notifies you can head to your local store that has the item in stock and check it out and decide whether it’s perfect for that person on your gift list. You can also choose to purchase the item online.

We just love little genius ideas like this. Especially when they help take the stress out of the holidays- leaving more time for mulled wine, cookies and parties!
