Your Favorite Wishlist Tool: The LIY Elf Service

December 5, 2018


Erin Schrader

One of my favorite memories from 2018 will be when a woman walked up to me at Nordstrom during our Gibson x Living in Yellow launch party and said “My husband wanted me to come here tonight to tell you thank you for helping him buy me what I actually wanted for Christmas last year. He’s never felt confident at shopping for me and your ELF Service was a life saver for him, so thank you from both of us.” It was at that moment that I knew we had to bring it back again this year.

If you’re new here, I should back up as you may have no actual idea on what in the heck I am talking about. Allow me to explain. The LIY Elf Personalized Wishlist Service is a easy way for you to send your “Santa” your wishlist with links, colors and sizing info desired. Whether it’s your spouse, your mom, your sister, friend, whoever may appreciate a little extra guidance when it comes to shopping for you, it’s a fail proof way of getting a thing or two under the tree that you may really, really, love. Sorry chainsaws and perfume that resembles your grandmother’s bathroom scent, your days are over. Let’s break down these steps on how all of this works for you:

  1. To start, we’d recommend browsing through our holiday lookbook which you’ll see below. In there you’ll find tons of wishlist inspiration for you to start building your list [and yes, all items are clickable if you need to do a little further investigating or don’t have the patience to wait for the big day and need to hit checkout stat]. Hint: I’d recommend on making the catalog full screen for optimal viewing! Let’s break down t
  2. After you’ve flipped the pages, it’s your turn to start building your list! Simply click here and start filling out your own personalized wishlist by checking off the items you’d like and adding in others we may have missed!
  3. After you’re all done – simply submit your form and our team of elves will send your wishlist with all of the links, color preferences, sizes and more directly to your Santa within 24-48 hours [that’s being generous – most will receive it within seconds] MAGIC!
  4. Wait until Christmas morning to be pleasantly surprised to see which item(s) you’ll actually receive and be truly ecstatic about! Warning: Smiles, screams of joy and hugs will occur.

ps. The service is completely FREE so really, the only thing you have to lose by doing it is the risk of NOT receive a sucky Christmas gift this year ????

pps. Do you have a friend, co-worker, sister, etc who you think would benefit from this service? Feel free to pass it along – the more the merrier #punintended

Now, who’s ready to start building their dream list?

We can’t wait to see what Santa has in store for you this year! Ready, set, ASK!.
