Throughout the year, if I see a gift that is just perfect for a friend or loved one, I will buy it and place it in my “gift closet” for the holidays. This generally happens for people I know well like my husband, my Mom and my daughters. However, I have a bad habit of procrastinating for those left on my list until the eleventh hour is upon me. It’s like having writer’s block…but with shopping.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone to find gifts for those “hard to buy for” people and plop them in your lap with a big red bow? If you are one of those people that find shopping easy and fun, I would totally hire you as my personal shopper. Better yet, start a free account on Shop Your Way and become a personal shopper for all your family and friends and earn money while doing it!

I figured I would try my hand at this personal shopper thing. One of the items I find hardest to buy during the holidays is a gift for my child’s teacher. By searching the Departments on Shop Your Way, I found so many great ideas including a Starbucks Coffee Tote Bag Gift Set for just $19.99. I know both of my daughters teachers love coffee, so this would make a wonderful and thoughtful gift for them both.
