Let Santa do your shopping for you

Having trouble completing your Christmas shopping? A new business is letting Father Christmas do it for you.

Some thoughtful Christmas shoppers have set up IamSaintNick.com, a site designed to help gift-givers having a problem or two deciding what to buy.

A user submits the phone numbers of people who they’re having a hard time buying for. The site’s “Santa” then gives them an anonymous call, asking what they’d like for Christmas. The call is recorded and posted for online access to the gift-giver.

Powered by Twilio phone technology, the Washington-based business supports itself through advertising, but has its eyes on expanding into birthdays, anniversaries and other gift-giving occasions.
