Using Social Media to Find the Perfect Gift

The holiday shopping season is now in full swing, and social media gifts can help you find the perfect gift for your significant other, a family member, or maybe even a co-worker. Your social media gift does not necessarily have to be something from a social media website. In fact, you can use social media websites to find the perfect social media gift that you are looking to buy someone. Through social media, you can easily read someone’s social media feed. Use their Tweets, Posts, and Likes in order to find out more about the person you’re buying for.

Let’s say, for example, that your mother is on Facebook. Why not look at what she has posted over the past few months and what she has “liked”. Maybe there is a particular store that she has “liked” on Facebook. Why not start there, at that store that she has Liked on Facebook.

Or maybe the person you are wanting ideas for has posted about a particular charity? Perhaps you might consider giving to that charity–in their honor. And then you can give them a nice holiday card telling them that you donated on their behalf.

For someone who might be a sports fan, you might want to look at their Twitter feed and see what they have posted during a game. Perhaps you may be able to figure out who their favorite player is–and an autographed picture or other item from that player might be the perfect gift for them.

Whatever gift you give this year, using social media and what I would call social media gifts, can help you learn a bit more about the person who you are buying for. And making the gift that more personalized to that person will make the gift that much better this holiday season. And maybe you will even learn a bit more about the person you’re buying for, as well.
