Finding the Perfect Gift… For Yourself

Your birthday is coming up and it seems everyone is asking “What do you want for your birthday?”. On one hand, it’s nice that everyone cares and wants to get you something you truly love, on the other hand you can’t stop yourself from thinking “shouldn’t they know?”. Truth be told, it can even feel like work to let them know what you want for your own birthday. Lucky for you, there are lots of ways to help people celebrate you without it actually feeling like work.  At To & From we are actively thinking about the giftee and providing their loved ones with the best tools to ensure they receive exactly what they want for their birthday. In fact, To and From has a patent pending on how we purposely think about Gifters, Giftees and Brands, always keeping a perfect gift as the gold standard to your gifting success.



The first way to help them gift you perfectly is with bookmarks and gift lists. You can bookmark any item you see on To&From and then send a giftlist to the people most important to you. You can even add external items (things not on our site) to your account to make sure you’re not leaving anything out.

Gifting Quiz

What if you don’t know what you want for your birthday? There are things that you would like, but nothing significant enough to mark this grand occasion that is your birthday. This is where our gifting quiz comes into play. Here’s how it works: you answer a series of questions, and we come back with some personalized gift recommendations that can be easily shared with your friends and family. The best part? You can take it for other people as well, when you’re not quite sure what to get them for their special day.

Gift Filters

The third tool to help you figure out (or help them figure out) what to ask for a birthday is by using our gift filters. If they know almost anything about you, they can use our terrific filters to find you the perfect gift. If they know you are into home decor, that you have a farmhouse aesthetic and you like supporting female founders, then they can choose something from this filter set. Or if they know you love colorful jewelry and handbags and that you fancy the color pink, they can choose from this filter set.

At the end of the day, everyone loves to be remembered on their birthdays and it shouldn’t be so hard to get us something that we love. Hopefully these tools make it easier. 

Happy Birthday!
