Dropping Hints for Mothers Day – The Hi-Tech Edition

Do you get appliances every year for Mothers Day? Even though a new toaster is nice, it isn’t exactly what we were wishing for year after year. You may hope for a beautiful piece of jewelry, handmade picture from your little ones, or even a certain plant for your outdoor landscape. How do you “hint” around, especially when your kids are too little to drop some hints?

Gone are the days of magazine pictures conveniently stuffed for your partner to see or even things circled in the weekly store ads, there are some great tools that you can keep a “Wish List” throughout the year!

Pinterest – Make a Pinterest board. So easy and visual for anyone you share it with. You can see mine here!

Evernote or Springpad – Collect ideas or even write a list and save as a note. Write down stores you find items at, take pictures, and even put the aisle number. It can’t get easier!

Store Wish Lists – Many stores have ways to register and create your own wish list.

Web Sites or Smart Phone Apps – The lists you make at the end of the year for your children can be used just as easily for you!

All of these options will make that blender a thing of the past… you just have to remember to send a link or message to remind them to check it!!

By the way… to my husband, if you are reading this… be sure to check out my Evernote Notebook labeled Kim’s Wish List or my Pinterest Board. HINT HINT!
