I am a list guy. I keep to-get and to-do lists for everything. Heck, I even have a spreadsheet I can print off and check off for any trip over a day. With that said, gifts ideas are one of those things that I will get, and will forget within the hour. Here is what I have found to be EXTREMELY helpful. Since I have e-mail with my phone, every time I have a gift idea, I send myself an e-mail with 'Gift Idea To Add - (persons name) - (gift Idea)'. Every couple months, I compile the ideas into a single e-mail, and delete all of the individual e-mails. When we need a gift idea for birthdays, Christmas, etc, we just do an e-mail search on 'Gift Idea', and comb through the big e-mail list, and any individual ideas that hadn't made it to the big list. Enjoy!
