Did you know that if your friends set up a Wish List or a Registry on amazon.com that you can search for them & buy them things from their list?
I noticed you can also gift someone a Pro flickr account too. (Flickr is a website where you can store your photos.)
How about rummaging through someone's Etsy "favorites" & buying them something that you know they'll like.
Poke around Pinterest & find your friend's "MUST HAVE THIS NOW" board.
You get the idea.
I have wanted to shower someone with an unforeseen prezzie for a long time. So I did! (In most cases, you have to know the address of the recipient of course.)
So, go online & surprise someone with a giftie.
It's so much fun!!!!
