Fun with Amazon.com Gift Organizer

Amazon.com launched a gift organizer feature yesterday, and it's so much fun!

I've already gone through connected all the things I've ever bought at Amazon with the gift recipient. I love how I can see what I've purchased since 2001, although I realize I've bought maybe too many things for myself! Hehe.

In any case, this organizer is *perfect*, since just yesterday I was starting to put together my holiday gift list. This year, I plan to be organized and buy everything ahead of time online. Usually, I procrastinate until the last minute and usually spend Christmas Eve at Border's buying books for everyone I know. It's quite stressful.

This gift organizer thing is *so* much better. You can scan through gift idea lists and add your gift ideas to a special "gift idea list" for each person. It's great! The only problem is that I can't quite figure out how to add an item directly to someone's gift list. I can't find the button!

So to get around it, I've been adding things to my wish list first, then moving them to the gift recipient's list. It's sort of annoying!!! But, oh well, at least I can track ideas more beautifully and graphically on amazon.com. Try it, it's so much fun!

It's also fun to see the "most wished for" items and the "most gifted". I am such a sucker for most popular lists!!!
