Etsy and Facebook Gift Recommendations Forgot Someone: The User

As a lover of the beautiful and the handmade, Etsy is a place I often end up. Hours and hours looking at origami, letterpress, and art prints. Of course I enjoy the gift recommendation feature that allows you to search for gifts for your Facebook friends based on their likes – clearly it was programmed to match gift options on Etsy depending on what Etsy sellers tag their items with. All you have to do is type in a friend’s name and gift options abound. But they forgot someone- the user!

It would be great to see what Etsy items are being recommended to me based on my Facebook likes, too. Many times we are shopping for ourselves – I hope they add this feature soon.
