The gift of giving is sometimes the best part of birthdays and Christmas. The old saying ‘it’s the thought that counts’ is true. If you create a list of gift ideas for birthdays and Christmas in Evernote you perfect the art of gift giving. Let me show you how.
This blog post is a continuation to my previous post about creating a list of family and friends birthdays in Evernote, articles to help show you how Evernote can be used for the most simple everyday things in your life.
Earlier posts in this series are about How To Use Evernote For Your Grocery Shopping List and How To Keep Record of Your Medical Information in Evernote for those medical emergencies.
Create A List Of Gift Ideas For Birthdays And Christmas In Evernote
If you have read my earlier article about creating a list of family and friends birthdays in Evernote all of the hard work is already done. You would have already set up all of your family and friends birthdays in Evernote. You also would have set reminders for when their special day falls due.
This blog post is a continuation of that post where you would now add and capture your gift ideas as inspiration strikes.
Evernote.com is extremely useful to help you capture, retain and recall your most valuable information where ever you are.
Let me explain. Say you are out and about at a shopping mall. You happen to see an item that would be perfect for a family member or friend. Rather than rely on your memory simply open up Evernote. Add a gift suggestion to that persons birthday note.
When you review upcoming birthday notes, your previously uploaded gift suggestion is right there for you. What a great idea.
Let me show you:
- Open Evernote
- Tap Shortcuts
- Tap Birthday’s master list from the notes listed in your short cuts menu
- This will open up the Birthdays master list. Select the relevant persons birthday note from the master list.
- Simply add comments or photos of that perfect gift suggestion into that persons birthday note.
Pro Tip: The hyper linking between notes and shorts cuts were explained in the creating a list of family and friends birthdays in Evernote blog post.
Create A List Of Gift Ideas For Christmas In Evernote
Similarly to the Birthday’s master list created earlier, you can also create a Christmas gift ideas note.
The Christmas gift ideas note can simply be just a table of all your family and friends like the example below:
Again, you can add this note to your short cut menu for quick access.
As inspiration strikes, open up a new note and create a list of gift ideas for birthdays and Christmas in Evernote.
You have now learned how to:
- Access your short cut menu
- Capture, retain and recall important information
- Use Evernote when inspiration strikes
- Use Evernote for the most simple everyday things in your life
