With only 15 days left until Christmas (yep, we went there), we’re in full-on holiday decorating mode, which is why we’re loving how easy our partner The Prowl makes it to find everything we need, or uh, might have forgotten. All with just a few clicks. And no packing up the kids in the car to run to the store either.
-Don’t miss a great $500 giveaway below!-
The Prowl has taken social shopping to a whole new level, and it’s not just checking out your friends’ boards to know what to buy her for Christmas (though that is a reallllly good idea) by the way. We’ve put together some great tips for using it, plus a bunch of our favorite boards to help you with the coolest decorations, entertaining essentials, and hostess gift ideas for your own boards.
Check out examples like the Simple Christmas board pictured above – so pretty! -which have curated the coolest decorations, entertaining essentials, and hostess gifts available for purchase, then get inspiration for your own boards.
Here’s how we’re playing with The Prowl to get the most out of it:
1. Join (it’s free!)
2. Save ideas and inspiration from some of the top tastemakers or Prowl directly from your own favorite shops on your own boards. Give it a great descriptive title to help fellow Prowlers find your beautiful ideas.
3. Check out the Ask & Answer section that allows you to crowdsource your shopping questions. Can’t seem to pick the right star for the top of your tree? Your tween have you completely stumped for a gift? You can do that all on a crowdsourced Q&A board. It’s like having thousands of personal shoppers with great taste answer your every question.
4. The Prowl is about more than inspiration–it’s totally about making shopping easier. So anything you see, you can buy with a click. It’s not like someone just “prowled” some random image off a search engine that seems to only exist on a blog in Lithuania. Everything here is for sale from real shops which we know keeps us from going a little crazy.
