Get Professional Help with Your Shopping

This free Web service will find gifts for everyone on your list

It’s your mom’s birthday. Again. Ugh. Every year, you pick out something you’re sure she’ll like, and she pans it. Even the $90 cashmere sweater was no good.

OK, maybe “burnt fuchsia” was an adventurous color choice.

Forget your failed presents. Now there’s HelloShopper, a totally free, web-based professional shopping service (and iOS app) that takes the anxiety out of buying presents.

Request a gift by describing the person you’re buying for (“huge Sinatra fan with a fondness for archery!”) and noting how much you want to spend. A gift shopper will then scour the Internet for you and message back with appropriate gift suggestions.

You can shop for yourself on HelloShopper, too—everything from clothing to housewares and more. Just browsing? Check out the site’s curated collections for great themed gift ideas.

Do it for Mom.
