Hi all,

We know holiday shopping can be stressful. Who do you need to shop for? What will they really like? Sometimes it's hard just to get started. Today we're starting to roll out a new tool to help you kick start your holiday shopping with gift ideas for Facebook friends.

Here's how it works. You connect with Facebook and choose a Facebook friend you want to shop for. We then show you gift ideas for that friend based on their Facebook likes and interests.

The tool is currently live for 1% of members. If the tool is available to you, there's a link to "Gift Ideas" at the bottom of the left column on search result pages. If you don't have access yet, not to worry, we're releasing this to everyone very soon.

If you find this feature helpful, share it with your friends on Facebook, so they can use it to find something for you!

Q & A

Q: What if I'm not on Facebook?

A: Don't worry, we've still got lots of great ways to find gifts for everyone on your list. Check out our Treasury filled with great finds from our members, sign up for our Etsy Gifts email, or browse through your favorite categories.

Q: Why can't I see gift ideas for some of my friends?

A: The gift ideas rely of your friends' Facebook likes and interests, so we can't always come up with ideas if your friends don't have many likes on Facebook. You can always search and explore Etsy to find gifts for these friends.
