“This post is brought to you by Rendezvous. All opinions are my own.”
It’s that time of year where we start thinking about purchasing gifts for everyone. In fact I would say many of you have already started shopping for the gift giving season. I haven’t but I’ve started building lists. I’ve also been asked for my kids’ lists. Isn’t it nice when you can create a list in a central location and then share it with everyone interested? That’s what Rendezvous is. Actually it’s more than that it’s a way to make recommendations and send them to your friends.
What is Rendezvous?
Rendezvous is a social recommendations engine based on trusted opinions of connected users (your friends). Rendezvous also helps you find relevant products through your friends’ recommendations on brands you love. It’s an app that works through Facebook Messenger.

It’s a better way to get a recommendation that fits your desire more specifically
WHAT WAS OUR RECOMMENDATIONS:
So we were invited to check out Rendezvous. We received a list of recommendations from our friend and then we could like, dislike or view the item. When we viewed the item it took us to Amazon to view it. Then we chose a few things to like and then we received more recommendations. From that we liked more things and then tried to make our own list. We also shared our list of new recommendations with our friends. It’s like the list that keeps on giving. So we started with some really cool science toys that I LOVE getting for the kids.
I’ve noticed that Hatchimals are popular this year
I also added quite a few different Alex toys.
I think the more people you get to use the app with you the more fun it will be to use the app.
