eBay is the #1 place I shop during the Holidays and has been for the last few years. They’ve always had the best prices on gifts, especially unique or hard to find items! I have a tendency to go window shopping at local retailers, find something I like and then search (and purchase) it via eBay at a major discount. I have the eBay Gift Guide & Mobile App on my phone and for as long as I can recall I haven’t ever made a gift purchase without checking that handy eBay App first.
I’ve purchased probably something from every category on eBay; phones, electronics, musical equipment, appliances, kids furniture, decor, games, controllers, cds, records, dvds, clothing, unique rare collectibles, jewelry, makeup, shoes, purses and other accessories. You name it, I’ve probably scoured eBay for it! Looking at the eBay Gift Guide today I would choose these items for my personal list.
- Husband: Black & Decker 12V Cordless Drill w/ Stud Sensor
- Tot: Radio Flyer Grow N Go
- Teen: Halo 4
- Me: Keurig Mini Plus (I get a gift too right?!)
- Mom: DOONEY and Bourke Handbag
- Dad: Ben Sherman Mens Gray Canvas Bag
- Step-Dad: Tommy Hilfiger Black Wallet
- Step-Mom: Lands End Canvas Turtleneck Sweater
- Sister: Sterling Silver 1/4 ct Blue Diamond Studs
- Sister: Juicy Couture Bow Tote
- Brother: New Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch
- Brother: Brand New Converse Chuck Taylors
Lastly, it has Free Shipping on thousands of gifts!
The eBay Gift Guide also includes the eBay Deals of the Day where you can hit some fantastic discounts. On Black Friday I was able to get a 12mo XBox Live Membership for only $34! (Don’t tell my son!) So make sure you keep your eye on those deals!
The eBay Mobile App is pretty much the same thing. I’ve been using it since I got a Smartphone so I’ll give you some very easy instructions, however, I have an Android and this may look a bit different on an iPhone.
My eBay is what you are personally Watching, Buying or Selling. Motors is exactly what you think it is, a place to buy and sell vehicles (parts and accessories as well) and then Selling if you want to become an eBay Seller. For now though, I want you to skip all that and look at two areas on the App – Browse Categories and eBay Deals.
The first photo shows the Deals by Category and the second Daily Deals, which also has categories at the bottom. Once you find an item, you can choose to Watch that item (in case you are purchasing at a later time) or Buy It Now and also Buy More Than One. Other options on the Item Screen is to view more similar items, sell a similar item or Share it!
The eBay Mobile App is very easy to use, both to shop and to sell items. It’s also the quickest way for me to catch a deal online!
I also noticed this on my eBay App, Give Green! All eco-friendly gifts for the Holiday Season! Is it on yours?
To find more inspiration for gift giving, you can visit eBay’s Pinterest Page which has all sorts of neat things! And since it is Cyber Monday today, you should check out eBay’s Facebook Page and @eBay on Twitter for updated information and deals!
Have fun shopping!
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of eBay. I received a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
