What is CheckedTwice?
CheckedTwice is a free online gift registry that designed for families. We help families organize their gift giving for the holiday season and for birthdays. Our service takes a lot of the stress out of gift giving, letting our users spend more time relaxing in the company of family and friends.
What is this blog about?
This blog tells of the trials and tribulations of developing CheckedTwice and getting the word out about our awesome project. Posts will typically either look at code and some of the issues that surround software development or they’ll look at growth and some of our thoughts about distribution and marketing.

My son set up this site for the family for our Christmas giving. I love the ease of finding and ordering the items requested. What I don’t like is that everyone is told who the purchaser is. I don’t want my son, and everyone else, knowing what I bought for his wife or she knowing what I bought him. It takes away any possible surprises and pleasure in giving. It would be adequate to just indicate that the item had been purchased and therefore not available for purchase by anyone else. Is it possible for you to make that change ASAP so we can benefit from this privacy?
Hi there! We built an option for Secret Santa gift exchanges that turns “claimed by Steve” into “claimed by somebody.” Just send us a note at email@example.com and we’ll turn it on for your Christmas occasion..
