Ok – soooooo remember how yesterday it was Halloween and then all of a sudden you were eating Thanksgiving dinner and then all of a sudden you realized that tomorrow is Christmas? Does the holiday season feel like that to anyone else? Goodness this time of year just flies by! Amiright? I don’t know about you, but seeing December 1st on my calendar was a little alarming. I gotta get serious about my holiday shopping! That’s why I’ve teamed up with Zappos today to share with you why it’s one of my ultimate gifting destinations.
I had the opportunity to take part in a little gift exchange with another blogger, using Zappos as our source for finding the perfect gift. We were sent a description of our giftee and then be tasked with finding an awesome gift for them on Zappos.com. Ummmm, jigga what? You want me to pick a gift out for someone I’ve never met? You guys – it was a daunting task. But ya know what? I am here to report that using Zappos as the gifting source made it so much easier. Here’s what I love about the site:
- There are so many things to choose from! It makes me feel like I don’t really need to go anywhere else to find gifts for just about everyone on my list. Shoes, clothing, accessories – they’re all there.
- Their filtering system is robust to say the least. That might be my favorite thing about the site. There are a million different options for how to narrow down your search, which is SO nice. It helped me not feel overwhelmed by the massive amounts of products listed on the site.
- They have this very helpful Gift Guide for even more hand-holding through the gift-selecting process
- Zappos has a 365-day return policy and super fast and free shipping. Say what? For real. Bonus. Points. Way. To. Go. Zappos.
Conclusion: the gifting experience via Zappos was a total success. My collaborator sent me the killer Sam Edleman booties you see in the pic below (how did he know that I’d be coveting this exact pair for a hot minute? Trippy.) and a classic-can’t-go-wrong black faux fur vest, which I’m wearing in the pic above. I ended up getting my collaborator this rad jacket and slick little wallet. Not bad eh?
In short, if you’re looking for a super awesome, one-stop-shop type of holiday shopping experience, be sure to pay Zappos a visit. They’re basically crushing it.
