The holidays are fast approaching: there are parties to plan, travel arrangements to make, not to mention all the shopping to do. This year, make things a little easier on your friends and family by setting up a wish list online at MyRegistry.com. Here you can add products from big-name retailers as well as smaller independent stores that may not offer wish lists—which means that that Etsy seller whose stuff you love so much is fair game. To select products from any online store, click on the site's Add to MyRegistry button, which will then magically appear in your browser's toolbar for easy access.
The best part? You're guaranteed to get something you love, which means no waiting in the returns line the next day. —Allison Bean
