  • Spring

    First thing’s first: You’ve gotta figure out what to buy for people. But if the thought of browsing a bunch of shopping sites gives you a headache, then get Spring. Follow clothing, lifestyle, and beauty brands to get a newsfeed of new products. You can view details, save picks, and buy anything right in the app—with free shipping to boot.

    Speaking of buying gifts online, here’s another handy tool. ShopGenius is a Chrome extension that finds coupons, customer reviews, and alternate online retailers for the products you want. So you can stay informed and save cash from the comfort of your couch.

  • Paribus

    Yeah, spreading holiday cheer is great, but let’s not forget that somebody has to pay for all those gifts. If you’re buying from big retailers like Amazon, try Paribus, a web service that gets you cash back once the prices drop on things you buy. Connect Paribus with your email account and if the price on something drops, it sends you the difference. It’s like a reward for getting through your gift list.

  • Try

    Last year’s chunky sweater isn’t going to cut it at this year’s holiday parties. But who has time to go shopping for an outfit? Install the Try button in Chrome and click it to get clothing sent to you to try on. You can test up to five items during a 10-day window, and you only pay for what you keep. Revamping your wardrobe has never been this easy.

  • Scratch

    You forgot to buy something for Uncle Jerry. Again. And you definitely don’t have time to go looking for something to get him. Let the pro shoppers at Scratch handle it. All you have to do is describe the person you’re shopping for and note how much you want to spend. A Scratch shopper will message you with a list of gift options that Uncle Jerry will love.
