Give the Perfect Gift Every Time with Present Bee

Gift giving can be a challenge sometimes.   It can be hard to find the right gift for that person. Or you may have the perfect gift picked out but you run the risk that they already have it.  But Present Bee may have the solution to this very common problem.

Present Bee is a social gift recommendation site.  Users can create wish lists to share with their friends and family through Facebook Connect.  Once a list is shared, friends and family can vote and comment on gifts on the list.  This helps to alleviate the issue of picking a gift that the recipient may already have.  And, of course, the recipient will not be able to see the list as Present Bee will not post any items to your wall. Once you find a gift that fits, just click buy and that’s it.

Another interesting feature that Present Bee offers is its ability to recommend gifts based on someones likes and interests on Facebook.  This would be an extremely helpful jumping off point for someone who may not be sure where to begin.  Another feature that looks quite handy is the group buying ability.  This allows a group of users to purchase a gift collectively using paypal.  That will be rolled out at the end of the year.

Present Bee looks like a great way to make sure you give the right gift every time. I can see this service getting very popular especially as the holidays are approaching.

Come meet the team and check out Present Bee as they demo at the next Tech Cocktail Chicago Fall Mixer Sponsored by Sprint this Thursday, October 28th at John Barleycorn Wrigleyville, following the Startup Mixology Conference.
