Unless you've been living under a rock, you may have seen all the buzz in the news about ChatGPT. But what is ChatGPT? And importantly, how can it help with gifting?

ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence chatbot developed by AI startup OpenAI. ChatGPT uses deep learning techniques to generate human-like responses to text inputs in a conversational manner. Check out this article from CNBC for an easy-to-read summary on all you need to know about ChatGPT.

Ok, so a human-like computer that I can have a conversation with and it will take my text input, consider the billions of parameters, and provide me with an informed answer?

Yes! Well, we figured that we'd give it a run on some common gifting experience questions to see what advice ChatGPT might give to our users.

Let's start with advice on giving a good gift

We asked the chatbot, "What are your top 10 tips on giving a good gift?" and it promptly provided the following list of tips:

  1. Consider the recipient's interests and personality.
  2. Pay attention to the occasion and its significance.
  3. Set a budget and stick to it.
  4. Choose something personal and unique.
  5. Avoid re-gifting.
  6. Pay attention to packaging and presentation
  7. Consider the recipient's age and life stage.
  8. Give a practical and useful gift if appropriate.
  9. Consider the recipient's lifestyle and habits.
  10. Include a thoughtful note or message to make the gift more meaningful.

These top 10 tips seemed like pretty sound advice in our opinion!

Well... if AI can provide some reasonable tips on giving a good gift, can it provide advice on how I can make sure people get me gifts that I want?

Top tips on how to get gifts you actally want

We asked the chatbot, "How can I make sure my family and friends get me gifts that I really want?" and it provided these very detailed tips and instructions:

  1. Make a wish list or registry: Consider creating a list of items you would like to receive as gifts.
  2. Communicate your preferences: Let your family and friends know what you like and what you need.
  3. Be specific: Instead of saying "I like books," specify your favorite genres or authors.
  4. Offer hints and suggestions: You can drop subtle hints about what you would like to receive as a gift.
  5. Be honest: If someone asks you directly what you would like, be honest and let them know what you want.
  6. Share your interests: Make sure your friends and family know what you're passionate about and what you enjoy doing.
  7. Update your social media: Use social media platforms to share your interests and hobbies, and tag products or items that you like.
  8. Be open to surprises: While it's helpful to have a general idea of what you'd like, it's also important to be open to unexpected gifts that may surprise and delight you.
  9. Express gratitude: Regardless of what you receive, always express gratitude and thank the person for their thoughtfulness.
  10. Remember the reason for the season: Keep in mind that the true meaning of gift giving is to show love and appreciation for the people in your life.

Wow, we were impressed that it balanced practical tips like "make a wish list or registry" (hint: you should use Perfect Gifting) with emotional and humanistic tips like "express gratitude".

Just remember, there are some social expectations around gift registries. We've previously shared a blog on the top Do's and Don'ts of Gift Registries which should help.
