We've all been there: you hit the shops or search engine armed with optimism and a list of vague ideas, only to feel your festive cheer die a little each time you can't find what you had in mind.
Our shoppable wish lists can take you straight to the retailer's product page to view and buy, so all you have to do is browse lists and pick presents.
And every gift is still a surprise because who you're buying for can't see what's been bought off their list.
1. Invite friends to join your Gift Circle and ask them for lists by email or private facebook message. You can also see which of your facebook friends use Gift Circle.
2. Browse lists and select gifts to save to your shopping list where you can view and buy gifts in store and keep track of what you've bought and how much you're spending.
3. Click view/buy to go to the store or, if your friend didn't recommend one, click browse and Gift Circle will list stores that sell what you're looking for.
