Ever received a rubbish present from a boyfriend? Yes, me too. I even know a guy who bought his girlfriend a Shewee (for those of you who don’t know what this is, Google it!). There are numerous times when I’ve thought, ‘if only he’d asked my friends for their opinion’ – well now he can!

AskHerFriends helps with that age old problem of ‘why can’t men get good gifts for the women in their lives’? Okay, sure, there are some guys out there who are amazing, know their wife or girlfriend inside out, and constantly deliver. But most struggle along for a while, make a few desultory Google searches, and then go into utter panic mode in the last couple of days before Christmas before throwing money at the problem or pretending like they never tried anyway.

Two Red Trees products on AskHerFriends

So what is the problem? Well, it’s twofold – guys just don’t know where to start with ideas (or are confronted with too many in the agony of choice!), and even if they do, they don’t want to get it wrong for fear of being laughed at. So AskHerFriends scours the internet to find the coolest boutiques (Two Red Trees being one of them, naturally), giving guys a range of carefully curated gift ideas, which they can then search using tools like the Idea Map or What’s Hot. And then here’s the key – although guys don’t like asking for advice, they can do it in a very easy and subtle way by creating an Advice List of ideas, and quickly getting the lucky recipient’s friends to just confirm that he’s on the right track. The end result – the perfect gift for her.

We are currently running a fabulous competition with AskHerFriends where by the lucky winner will receive £50 to spend on Two Red Trees! The closing date for the comp is open until the 16th November, it’s very easy to enter and with such an amazing prize up for grabs then you’d be crazy to miss out – so go on, enter here.
