The INSIDER Summary:
- A man figured out the ultimate hack to finding his wife the perfect gift.
- He created an anonymous Pinterest account and followed her, choosing gifts based on her pins.
- Twitter totally loved his genius idea.
It can be tough to figure out what to gift your significant other — especially when there are a few holidays a year you’ll need to buy presents for. But one man came up with a brilliant idea to ensure that he will never struggle to find a gift for his wife.
A man named Jordan from Westfield, New Jersey, recently went viral after sharing his secret for how he finds the perfect gifts for his wife TyAnna. When activist Deray Mckesson asked Twitter if anyone still used Pinterest anymore, Jordan replied with the ultimate hack: he created a secret and anonymous Pinterest account, followed his wife, and mined her pins for gift ideas.
Is Pinterest still around? I’ve never figured out what to use it for.

I have a secret account that follows my wife’s. She has no clue how I always get her what she wants. https://t.co/jfdaKpPe7B

“I have a secret account that follows my wife’s,” he tweeted. “She has no clue how I always get her what she wants.”
Jordan told BuzzFeed News that his plan has been a total success so far and that’s he’s gifted her a sapphire nose ring, lip glosses, and earrings inspired by her pins.
People were obviously impressed with Jordan’s genius plan, and a lot said they hoped their partner’s would catch on to this hack, too.
This is so cute, I’m gonna die.

But obviously the person’s whose opinion matters most is TyAnna, and she told BuzzFeed News that while the hack is smart, it’s just par for the course from her thoughtful husband.
“I thought it was really really sweet but I wasn’t surprised because Jordan really goes the extra mile to make me happy,” she told them.
This just goes to show that a little bit of effort can go a long way in making your partner feel loved. Now please excuse me while I just go ahead and forward my entire Pinterest page to my boyfriend.
