In the Real Simple Gift Guide app you will find handpicked gift ideas for all of the special women in your life. You can:


1. Browse gifts by category.

Swipe through galleries of creative gift ideas that include picks for women, men, kids, and more.


2. Save a gift idea to your favorites.

On the lower portion of the gift page, there is a heart icon. Tap that once to add to your favorites. The heart should turn blue. If you want to remove an item from your favorites, go to the product and tap the heart so it goes back to its gray state.


3. Access your favorites.

Make sure you are on the "All Gifts" screen. In the middle of the navigation bar at the bottom of the page is a heart icon. Tap that to see all items in your favorites.


4. Buy a gift.

The "Buy Now" link at the top of the screen will take you to a separate screen where you can "Add to Shopping Cart" and purchase the gift. You can continue to shop and add multiple gifts to your shopping cart. Once you're finished shopping, you will be taken to a secure checkout screen to complete your transaction.


5. Refresh the page for new gift ideas.

We will be updating the app with new ideas throughout the holiday season. You don't have to update the app to see this new content. We will be sending out push notifications, and you can hit the refresh button at the top right of the screen to make sure you have the most up-to-date gift information.
