West Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) November 11, 2009 -- Wishzilla of Sacramento, California has introduced a better way to give and receive gifts. At Wishzilla.com, people can create Wish Lists of things they want, need or would like to be part of â€“ from coveted products to time with a loved one â€“ and share their wishes with friends and family so time and money wonâ€™t be wasted on gifts that arenâ€™t wanted or needed.
â€œSome people have a special gift of knowing exactly the right present to get for people,â€ said Chris Osborn of Wishzilla. â€œIâ€™m not one of those people, so I created a way for my friends and family to share ideas for gifts and make sure they wouldnâ€™t get the same gift twice or receive something unwanted that had to be re-gifted.â€
The genesis of Wishzilla was Grandma's Gift Box, an ordinary recipe box full of 3 x 5 cards at Chrisâ€™s grandmotherâ€™s house. But instead of recipes for food, Grandma's cards held recipes for fun and appreciation. Every card held a wish and was neatly filed under each family member's name. When it came time to buy a gift for somebody, you would make a trip to Grandma's house and have a look at that person's cards and add a wish or two of your own.
Grandmaâ€™s Gift Box was brought online as the â€œGift Box Serverâ€ in 1995, and has since been used by lots of families to make their gift giving a fun and enjoyable time for everyone. Now, the Gift Box Server has become Wishzilla.com, complete with powerful tools that make it easy to share wishes with friends and family, without needing to make that trip to Grandmaâ€™s house.
How It Works
To make lists work, you have to start a free account on Wishzilla.com. Wishzilla has tried to keep this as simple and pain free as possible, and if you have a Facebook account, you can connect your Wishzilla account with Facebook. Once your account is started, youâ€™re off and running.
