The Hookup On: Holiday Shopping

I am not a good gift giver. When birthdays, holidays, and anniversaries roll around I all of a sudden forget about any interests the person I’m buying for has. I brainstorm ideas all year, then the date rolls around and I’m completely blank.

I never thought I would find an affordable personal shopper option until I learned about Occasion Station. With the free version, you can create a station for a loved one and fill it with all the special occasions you want to remember for that person. You’ll receive email reminders from the system when that date is approaching. For a little more money, you can activate one of the personal gift shoppers and they will complete the task of buying, wrapping and shipping the gift for you.

And how do I know that Occasion Station sends good gifts and really nails the personalization? Because they sent me two AMAZING gifts to prove to me and to share with all of you how awesome their services is. My personality boils down to two things – the sloth being my spirit animal as I am lazy and quite sleepy, and eating donuts as much as possible.


GUYS look at these gifts! When I opened the box I audibly said “oh my god” and danced around my room alone. I can’t wait to see what Occasion Station will choose for my holiday shopping. Since Christmas is just around the corner, I thought this was a great time to share with you all this easy option!

  1. Not to toot my own horn, but I’m an awesome gift giver. My fiance and I just bought a house a few months back and I made a gift for our realtor to say thank you. I found out that he’s a huge fan of K.I.S.S. and I actually had a guitar pick from their lead guitarist (I have a collection of signed picks from famous people), so I rigged it into a small shadow box and hung it on a dual sided picture frame with a caption that read, ‘So glad we PICKED you to be our realtor.’ He was ecstatic when he got it. 🙂

    Fella’s birthday is a week from tomorrow. As we both adore our pound puppies, I decided to get him DNA test kits for the dogs to figure out their breed background. I’m also going to surprise him with a trip to a pinball machine museum where you pay a flat fee and have unlimited play of all their machines. They have a Metallica machine which is one of Fella’s favorite bands. I can’t wait to surprise him!

  2. I’m an OK gift giver. My family has always trended toward practical gift giving so I generally just ask what’s been on their list a while (or snoop their Amazon wishlist) and then take them out to dinner and or bake their birthday cake.
